… and the sky is gray. Did you sing that? Dave and I were on our way home from an appointment this morning and that song popped into my mind – it was a very fitting description of the scenery on this sometimes-rainy day.
We’ve enjoyed some really beautiful and unseasonably warm weather recently. But looks like the party is about over and cooler temps are on the way. I’m actually looking forward to those cooler temps – this apartment has a SW exposure and the afternoon sun beating on the huge windows keeps it rather toasty in here. We have this lovely gas fireplace and it sure would be nice to use it! I suspect we’ll have ample opportunity over the next several months though.
Loveseat order has been delayed once again. No timeframe provided, just an email advising of further delays. Dave has already decided his ankle surgery will not be scheduled until sometime after the holidays, but soon enough so that he’s recovered before camping season begins again up here. Not doing much walking, so no pain at the moment.
COVID19 is becoming more widespread up here, as is the case pretty much everywhere these days. The # of positive cases is rising quickly and hospitals are becoming overwhelmed. Field hospitals are projected to open within the next 2 weeks. We’ll be staying home a lot more going forward, and will have to keep our visits with family limited to Facetime chats for a while. Thanksgiving will be just us two – but at least we have each other, and we actually kind of like each other! LOL Our hearts go out to those, like Paul, who are single and will be alone. – At least he has Samson to keep him company.
My friends and family, I know that some of you do not believe that COVID19 is for real and/or that the government should do its best to protect its citizens. I can’t honestly say that I understand your view, but I do ask that you please do your best to protect ME, and others – wear a mask! I just do not understand why that is too much to ask! I do not understand why that is deemed a political statement. I see it as a sign of respect and caring. It’s not about YOU! It is about doing what you can do protect everyone around you. And, yes – I know the verdict is still out on exactly how this virus spreads, etc. – but over all, wearing a mask has been seen as a major way to stop the spread. I thank all of you who follow the “wear a mask” advisements.
I struggle with the name of this blog. We no longer live in our Reflection, but I do still reflect on our life. And our Reflection will provide a summer getaway come mid-May. Perhaps I just need to update the blog description. Have to think on that.
Peace be with you all.
