So I have been making masks for the family and whoever needs them. I will be donating to the medical people here. We have a place that we can drop them off. I have posted on NextDoor app. I guess I should post on facebook so anyone that needs one can get one.
Heather, my daughter, has bought most of the material and elastic. She doesn’t have time to make them so I am.
I had someone on NextDoor that needed one for her and one for her daughter. I gave her an extra because she worked in the medical field. She said the ones they gave them hurt her ears. She is donating some material and elastic she has. I was really excited about this.
Heather came by to drop off some more material and elastic today. Also, some chocolate chip cookies and pictures the girls colored for us. I left her bag hanging from the mailbox and she replaced it with her bag. I feel like I am dealing drugs.
Harrison got to meet his big sister for the first time through the window.
We are staying safe and practicing social distancing. It is really hard when you know your granddaughters are in the car and you can’t hug them. What matters though is keeping them safe.
I know during this Covid-19 lock down we are all watching a lot of TV series and movies. Streaming is what keeps a lot of us going. David and I are just like the rest of you watching movies and TV series.
I have always liked Rebel Wilson so when I found this movie on Amazon Prime I had to watch it.
I was not disappointed with this movie. It really enjoyed this movie and had a good laugh. Natalie, Rebel Wilson, believes no one can love her or pay attention to her because of always being told by her mother that people like them don’t ever find love or get attention paid to them.
After being mugged and being knocked unconscious in the subway she dreams of what she thinks would be the perfect life. She finds it isn’t really what she would want. She finally finds out she needs to love herself. She finds self respect and love.
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!
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.
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.
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.
Well I imagine that all of us our doing things differently in our life because we are trying to do what we can do to stop the spread of Covid19. We are doing what we can to entertain ourselves here in our home.
We have taken Harrison to the vet. They want everyone safe, so you sit outside while they examine your pet. Talk to you on the phone to let you know what it going on with your pet. When we left we thought we were done. Then we get a call to tell us that Harrison has hookworms too. David had to go and pick up his meds. When he arrived he had to call to let them know he was there. He gave him his card info and then they brought out his medication.
I had a doctor appointment this week with my new doctor. I had been waiting for almost 2 months to get in. I was figuring they would cancel it but they didn’t. We arrived at the doctor’s office. There was a gentleman outside that by using social distancing asked me several questions and told us the David couldn’t come in with me. I was handed a mask because we had been in Seattle for a month, returning on March 9th. Was allowed into the empty waiting room. I was escorted back within a minute or two. There in my room things seemed like just a normal office visit. After the nurse talked to me and the doctor had gone through my records I had brought in earlier we discussed my plan.
Living in Alaska in a cabin in the woods you learn about cabin fever and how to protect yourself from it. I know we are supposed to stay in but they are recommending outside activities like hiking or walking. I know that is what always helped me was to get outside and move. Thanks to Harrison we always take him for a walk, well at least for the little over a week we have had him. Of course, I say that as I look at the rain coming down outside. I really don’t want to smell wet dog the rest of the day. We have several times had to wait until the rain stopped to go. Hopefully, we will this time too. Looks pretty gray outside though.
