No Sunshine


     Where has our sunshine gone? I am tired of the gloomy days and want a change. Spring is suppose to be here , but you can't really tell that with the temperature going up and down and you don't really know how you want to dress in layers or not. 
     I am ready to go back to a normal life as normal as can be. I am tired of being told how to take care of myself as though I don't know how to do it. I know how to stay healthy and safe without being told all of the time. 
    I have been alternating between embroidering, working on a 1000 piece puzzle and reading. My walking has been confined because of them closing the track and exercising room here in my apartment building. I don't watch a lot of television mainly have it on for noise because I can't stand the quiet. 
    The kids are out of school with their chrome books and working from home. Some of them will do what they are suppose to do, but I can feature some of them not doing it. Will they truly keep them back a grade because of all this, keep the kids from graduating and being able to walk across the stage to get their diploma? It makes you wonder when we will get back to a normal life or as normal as it can be. 
    Why do they want us to live in fear? Are they trying to control us to do as they say and not have a mind of our own?  I have common sense and know what to do and what not to do during this time and I hope that other people do as well. When you live on a fix income you know how to wisely spend your money on the essentials that you need or at least I do to keep food that will last for several days. 
     What have you been doing to keep yourself busy during this time? Do you have family or a friend to check on you and make sure you are doing o.k.?  I remember back when I was in assisted living rehabbing a broken leg. We had to stay in our apartment and they brought our meals to us because of a bug going around that reminded me of the bug today.  I was thankful I had a window to look out. It was a great deal like what we are going through today only they didn't shut everything down like they have now. I watched the local news this morning and when they showed  the highway it reminded me of  a ghost town with the few vehicles on the road. 
    I hope you all remain well and safe. I am going back to work on my baby quilt. It is called "They came by two". I love watching my embroidering to come to life. I just know I will not embroidery on terry cloth again. I tried it and I didn't like it.

Good Morning.
Yes, we know how to take care of ourselves. BUT all you have to do is watch TV and see all those that are ignoring the warnings...catching the bug..then passing it on to others. I worry about my husband who has a week immune system due to all of his health issues, particularly his RA meds. I've been putzing and stitching and waiting. Mostly waiting for the sun to shine and the rain to go. It looks like I'll be waiting for a few more days.
xx, Carol

It is hard to know what to do and what not to do isn't it? I don't mean being smart about staying in and keeping distance from people but for me it is working. Do I go or stay home? That is what is bothering me all the time. Stay well Shirley.
