I'm on week 5 of self isolation -- and 4 weeks without setting foot outside the door.
The ordering groceries on line with curbside pick up went a little bit better this week - I would say I got 90% of my order. BUT no fruit?! Really??!! no apples or oranges or bananas ?? !! what's up with that? I didn't believe it so last night Sir Steve went to our local grocer and found apples and oranges but no bananas..... makes me wonder about the supply chain and I have some concerns.
Still having trouble getting my blood pressure meds...... they apparently are produced in India and are therefore back ordered......... but they do have a small supply of the generic brand and they are sending me a month's supply.
This morning as Sir Steve and I were enjoying our coffee and morning smoke outside we heard this noise....... we looked around ....... and then we looked up .....
there was an airplane flying overheard! I think it's been 3 weeks at least since we saw/heard an airplane.
The morning news is talking about 'good news' - apparently we are flattening the curve (not in our province - but that was expected - we were the last ones to have spring break - so maybe we'll see an improvement in a week) and our Prime Minister said something about partially opening our borders in the next few weeks.
WHY he would do that is beyond me - who needs to travel now?? our essential workers like truckers are still able to cross the borders ... so I wonder who else has to cross ??
Home schooling is going better than I ever imagined it would. The lil one actually LOVES doing work with me...... and I can't believe how much she has improved!! Her writing ... her math.... her focus!! Yesterday we did some science - we cut the bottom off a stalk of celery and put it in water..... and we put a potato with eyes in water -- we'll see if anything grows. I have formed a pretty strong bond with her teacher.. the teacher isn't very computer savvy and asked if I could help her set up online learning. We spent a couple of hours yesterday doing that.. and she kept saying she owed me big time!! I made a mental note... eventually we're gonna have another court date to settle custody........ and she will be a great ally - hopefully giving us an advantage. I know the mother (even though I asked her) has not done ANY french work with the lil one. AND basically has shown no interest whatsoever in working with the lil one. (what else is new?!) For the record -- we do NOT want sole custody -- but we DO want custody for the school days..... so we can make sure homework is done and any remedial work as necessary.
Easter weekend was tough -- missed the family - missed seeing my grandboys and daughters. BUT we continue to have weekly chats via Facebook which helps a little bit.
Spring is struggling to load here in the Great White North...... we had snow off and on all day yesterday. Today is sunny - cold but at least the sun is out! And maybe a slow start to spring .. and a slower start to summer will make the self isolation easier... if it's wet and cold no one wants to be outside...... but sunshine and warmth and POW we're gonna be missing the campground .......... and long lazy days in the country.
How are things in your corner of the world?
Life is good when each new day brings us closer to the end of this pandemic.
Welcome to LOL (love our lifestyle) Day....... I have been working on this post for over a week (mostly in my head)..... cause my lifestyle...
About a week ago I received an email asking me if I would be interested in writing an article for some BDSM website. My initial reacti...
