Surviving Lockdown

Life continues to feel surreal.

A week ago, the hubby’s fixation on the news became too much.

I had to flee the house.

And ended up outside:

Beneath blue skies.

Spring said, “Hello, I’m here for you!”

I found some moss that needs a serious haircut.

And got my dirt ready.

In a week or so, I’ll plant my cold crops and watch them grow.

My dad turned 89, so I left a message in sidewalk chalk outside his senior apartment.

And in my writing room, I’m making masks.

And writing. A little.

My heart goes out to all those who are suffering.

To all those who are caring.

I wish you warmth, peace, and light.

  1. Bless your heart for the chalk writings. Think of how many with birthdays might have seen it. Your parents must have been on cloud nine. Thanks so much for sharing the pictures. A great reminder about rebirth and beginning again. I wear a homemade mask too now for the few times I need to go out like get mail, take out trash, or to to pick up a grocery order that’s all ready for me every couple of weeks. We have some very strict Stay at Home guidelines this time around. Thank God, people seem to be listening this time. Be safe and well, my friend.

    • I worry that the US won’t sustain the stay at home orders and social distancing – that we’ll have to endure a second wave. But I’m hopeful too. Yes, my parents were celebrities for the day. All the balconies were full of elderly people waving and taking pictures. It was so fun, Mary. I’m wearing a mask every time I go out. It’s a good reminder to people that they should too. Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by. I hope you have a beautiful peaceful Sunday, and if you celebrate Easter, have a lovely holiday. ❀

I’m still figuring it out, and don’t see much changing for a while, particularly in the US. I hope you’re doing well and finding peace within all the chaos. Have a wonderful day, and if you celebrate, Happy Easter. ❀

I am an optimist by nature, but I don’t feel great about our chances, what with the coronavirus threatening onsite polling, the GOP’s multipronged voter-suppression efforts, and Trump’s superhuman ability to turn cataclysmic failure into his own personal victories. Dems have got to rally behind our candidate (and, to be clear, he wasn’t my first choice) and get out the vote!

  26. Hello Diana, it’s so good to see something from you. I’m sorry about your news watching hubby – that must be unbearable! I catch up most days with our lovely PM’s daily briefing and leave it at that. We have just had four deaths from covid19 here and all are very old people who got infected in a rest home right back in the beginning before we all realised this was a real threat…… So it is good your parents are safely locked down. I loved that you wrote on the footpath for your dad’s birthday – you have excellent lettering skills there btw – and read in further comments you were thinking of leaving random greetings regularly which is also a fabulous idea. I’m coming up to my fourth
    week of lockdown and am now really quite enjoying myself. Especially as I have now found an online class that just lets me sketch and doodle and sometimes I colour my completed exercise too – it is so meditative and I am completely calm again. Sending warm, if virtual, hugs xoxo

        Thankfully we were able to shut our school during the Easter break, as despite lockdown, we are still open for the children of keyworkers, so operating as childcare, rather than actual educational establishments.
        So I have at least two weeks at home, before I get the rota detailing what happens as the new term ‘starts’. The family has been good, the kids are being taught online, using Google classrooms, and it’s been a learning curve for us all there! Hubby is firmly ensconced in the dining room that was, and is now his office!
        I am making the most of the one trip out a day for exercise, and taking walks so I get out of the house, but away from others.
        And I have managed to write too, so that is a bonus!
        You have a great weekend too, all things considered! xxx

    • It’s felt really good to be outside, Tessa. Especially since spring finally showed up. I’m reading more than I’m writing, but distracted for sure. πŸ™‚ You’re one of those caring people who is in my thoughts. Be well, my friend. ❀
