Covid-19 Pandemic

This morning Mr. Arnie woke me at 5 AM! Since he never asks to get up that early I figured I should pay attention and go and take him out. Naturally, Lili and Anneliese felt that they should keep him company, so up I got.

Now I sleep under a nice fluffy comforter, and so I never wear too much when I am in bed for the night. Consequently, as I stood in the kitchen waiting for the dogs, I was freezing.

As soon as they were all in, I gave them their breakfasts and turned on the coffee. I all but ran into the bedroom and pulled on my weekend comfy clothes.

I haven’t been sleeping well, and this early wake up isn’t going to help. I think perhaps what I need to do is take a short nap during the day.

My sister and I have been talking on Messenger Video. I can’t “Facetime” with her because I have an Android phone, but the Messenger app does a pretty good job. At least we can see each other.

My Chamomile Tea arrived yesterday in the mail, (I buy in bulk) and now I am set to stay in for a while.

Here is a great story about how people can be so nice.

I’d been told that the truck with eggs would be arriving at 11 o’clock yesterday. We needed eggs. I arrived shortly after eleven and still, no eggs. But I was told the truck would be there soon. I got the last of my groceries (The shelves had finally been restocked) and I went back to check on the eggs. Still no eggs. I kind of lurked around that area and a clerk came over and asked if I was looking for something? Yes, I told him, eggs. What kind? he asked. Well, I love the jumbo, but I will take anything. He went off and came back a few minutes later and had brought me a dozen jumbo eggs, very low key. He handed them to me and said, to hide them. They had not unloaded the truck yet and he didn’t want to start panic shopping.

I hid them under a package of turkey cutlets and headed for the door. I quickly checked out and came home! That young man will never know how much I appreciated his kindness.

We have 187 confirmed Covid-19 cases here in my little State of New Hampshire and we have had two deaths. Jack is very high risk due to his Agent Orange medical issues. He is also almost 82. I’m 61 and have had several medical problems so I know it’s a fine line for me.

We talked about it yesterday and since we have the things we need we will not be going out now until we run out of food. We both feel that it would be too risky.

I plan to order some dog food later today for the pooches and then it’s back to cleaning, crocheting and watching movies.

Stay safe, stay healthy, and as my step-son wrote to me, “Wash your hands”.
