Call of the Wild

This was totally different from the original movie from the book written by Jack London of the same title.

I didn’t realize how many movies had been made.

Mowing

With David having broken his wrist, I have his jobs to do too. This includes the yard work which I don’t really mind. First thing is make sure all the dog poop is picked up. This is really my job anyway. Next is picking up all the limbs that the bad winds blew out of our trees and from the neighbors trees. I am sure they have some of ours too. We are a very sharing neighborhood. This took me a while but I finally got it done. Then came the mowing.

Harrison was very helpful.

Sunny Covid Day

The other day before David fell and broke his wrist he was out mowing the yard with the help of Harrison.

Harrison is the only dog we have had that isn’t afraid or runs away from the lawnmower or even the vacuum. I actually can vacuum right up next to him and he doesn’t move.

While the boys were doing this I was making a birdfeeder out of an old pie pan.

The birds and the squirrel were very excited about this.

Stay safe out there!

Face Masks

I had gotten rid of all my scrap material when we moved but I have made a couple of aprons for the girls for their second birthday, so I had a few scraps that I could make masks.

I even cut out small ones for the twins.

I got the pattern from JoAnn’s.

They also have kits they are handing out for you to make for your first responders.

I didn’t have the 1/4 elastic but I did have some small round elastic I used. David said it does hurt your ears if you have to wear them too long. I could have made ties but didn’t think that made the mask tight enough.

The 1/4 elastic is out of stock a lot of places. I did just find a store on ETSY that said they would get it mailed in 2 to 5 days. I will see if it comes that soon.

Anyway this is what they look like finished.

We kept one each for us and took the rest over to my daughter Heather;s, house. She is still working so she needs more than one. I think she should change it everyday. Then all you have to do is throw them into washer and dryer.

Sarah, my other daughter, found 3 packages of 1/4 inch elastic at her house. She is mailing it across the country for me to make masks for all of them.

Our local hospital and clinics are now accepting homemade masks. They posted the pattern, so I will be starting on them.

Heather ordered some material from an ETSY store, so we have plenty of material. I guess I will start with ties until I get more elastic.

Stay Safe Out There!

Covid-19 and Easter

I know there are tons of grandparents that didn’t get to spend Easter with their grandchildren. I know some of you have done like my brother and sister in law who delivered things to their grandchildren as they watched from across the road as the children looked at all their goodies.

I took some things over to our granddaughters on Friday and left them on the porch.

This is how we got to do Easter this year with them via photos.

Girls are eating the chocolate sucker that Oma and Grandpa left for them.

We also got to use our Facebook Portal to visit with our grandchildren and children in Gig Harbor, Washington.

It was hard not spending Easter with our family but we all made the best of it. Covid-19 will not beat our family!

Let me know what you did for Easter.

David Does It Again

Well it has been almost 11 months since something like this happened to David. We were in Seattle and someone pushed David. He landed flat on his face. He was knocked unconscious. He scared me to death.

This was after 7 stitches.

He says he made it almost to 70 before he got stitches and a black eye. That time he ended up with 2 black eyes. Actually, he was bruised from his eyebrows to his collar bone. We were lucky though because it healed up and nothing was broken. I did have to drive us back home to Anchorage though.

So can you guess what I am going to tell you next?

Walking the Neighborhood

We have been walking, when weather permits, around our neighborhood. I have noticed a lot of people all day doing the same thing. I wonder if there will be as much walking when this is all over. We decided to make our walk a photo shoot.

Things That Aggravate

There are things that aggravate us in this time of a universal crisis. There are some people and business that are sticking to the rules of social distancing and covering our face while others don’t.

First I will talk about business and people who abide by the new rules to try to stay safe from Covid-19.

We had to take our Harrison back to the vet for a recheck for his ear infection. I want to say that East York Veterinary does a great job of social distancing and the wearing of a mask. We arrived at the clinic and called to let them know we had arrived. Then when it was time to bring Harrison in I placed him in the between the two glass doors. After I was out the nurse came in and got him. Dr Gale called me during the visit to tell me what was going on. He still had the ear infection but it was getting better. After talking to the doctor we get a phone call from the office to pay by card. Harrison is then brought back and put between the two glass doors with his meds. There was no contact with any person. Great job done by our vet. If you live in York, PA and need a vet I highly recommend our vet.

Getting Things Done

Well life does still go one even with Covid-19. The yard still has to be mowed. I mentioned in my last blog that we had to buy a lawnmower. We had a beautiful day, so it was time for David to get out and mow the yard which was getting a little deep in places.

Life During Covid-19

What have you been doing while you are confined? I am glad that we don’t live in an apartment but our own home. We can hang out in our back yard when it isn’t raining. I am not complaining about the rain because it has really made our yard green. This meant we better go buy a lawn mower. We got a used one while using social distancing.

David picked up the sticks from the backyard with the help of Harrison.
