When our daughter, Sarah, and her family visited in February we stopped by when we were out checking out Gettysburg. We didn’t get to check out everything outside because of the snow but the store was worth the visit.
Christina tells me she read that they had opened up a shed that is full of teapots and she would like to go check it out. She then proceeds to tell me that she has never taken her daughter, Maria. I told we needed to go then.
Heather planned our first day at Epcot. We took the monorail to the Grand Floridian Resort. Before you could get on the monorail you had your temperature checked. Due to covid-19 we got a car to ourselves. We could roll the stroller straight on without taking the girls out.
Also, you have to make reservations for the parks because they are limiting the people they allow in. You must wear a mask at all times except when you are seated and eating or drinking. You can’t walk around with food. Reservations have to be made for restaurants too. This is one of the ways Disney is trying to keep everyone safe.
We had reservations for the Grand Floridian Cafe. The breakfast was so good. We really enjoyed it. The magic has started.
Sorry I have been gone for a while but I am still recovering from my thumb surgery. I have finally got my cast off and have been wearing a splint. I go to therapy twice a week but I should be all done by the end of this month. It is getting a lot better.
Anyway we have been spending a lot of time with the granddaughters. They love to play in our backyard which has turned into Oma’s Little Tyke Playground. They love their pool too. They really like it when Oma makes bubbles in the pool.
Heather called Friday night to see if we wanted to do something fun with the girls on Saturday. We thought about several options but since Daddy had to go work on the apartments for a few hours we decided on something close. We picked PerryDell Farm. We had never been there before and the girls had never been close to moos.
This dairy is family owned and operated. It was bought in 1923 by Howard Perry. It was taken over by his two sons, George and Roger, who started bottling their milk. It is now run by George’s 3 sons. All the family pitches in on the farm and it supports 4 families. For more information follow the link below.
Our little backyard haven is where we spend a lot of time. We might be out exploring now but have made the choice to stay safe at home. we have been having a good time there.
I work in the garden. I am so happy it is actually growing. I bought this cool seed sprouter from Amazon. I bought it to sprout alfalfa seeds but it worked great to sprout all the seeds for the garden.
Last weekend Heather wanted to see her brother, Jared, before he headed back home to Sterling, Alaska. We are still under lock down and social distancing. We know we can visit in our backyard with making sure to stay 6′ between us. It was hard to not touch the girls though.
How did you celebrate your Covid-19 Mother’s Day? Here in Pennsylvania we are still locked down, but my daughter, Heather, figured if she brought the girls over and let them run in the backyard it would be safe. It was really hard to see them but not touch them.
The girls made me some flowers and Heather, Sarah and Cade bought me a new laptop.
Now was the sad time because they had to leave. It was really hard not being able to hug them all good bye.
Jared showed up right after they left, so he still hasn’t been able to see his sister and her girls. Hopefully, Heather wants the weather to be nice on Saturday so she can see her brother before he goes back to Alaska.
Jared brought me the cutest birdhouse for Mother’s Day. I didn’t expect anything from him because he was doing all the work upstairs to make our master bedroom and library. He was supposed to level the floor but when he got here and looked there was a lot more he had to do first. Now the bathroom is plumbed and the whole thing is wired. He has now leveled the floor and laying the sub floor the next few days. I am so lucky to have such a great carpenter for a son.
We ordered in so I wouldn’t have to cook. That was the best present I could do.
I hope you had a wonderful Covid-19 Mother’s Day. Let me know if you did anything fun.
Staying home, social distancing and wearing mask is our new norm but you can work in the yard without worrying about any of the above.
Every nice day David and I are out in the yard doing something. I got the front flower beds taken care of. We even got some flowers because there is this tent in the parking lot near us that is selling plants. I was told they come down every spring from Lancaster.
I got the edging delivered from Aldi’s. I know it isn’t straight but it works.
