It has rained for days and this morning the sky is overcast and gray. I went outside with Charlie and took photos and there was a soft misty rain falling.
Kasi is having surgery on her wrist tomorrow morning. She had her Covid-19 test yesterday, which she said wasn’t pleasant, so they’d let her into the hospital for surgery.
The raindrops look like small diamonds on the sedum this morning. It is growing quickly. All my pots are filling in nicely. Which takes about a month from the time I plant.
I get up with Charlie an average of about 5 times per night. He will start coughing and want out. Once he walks around out in the open air for awhile, he’s okay to come back in.
I have both a cool mist humidifier and an air purifier going in there for him.
The rainy weather makes it even worse for him. Not to mention the allergens in the air. Poor little guy.
Multiple times per day I find myself checking the US deaths due to Covid-19. Who could have imagined such a thing happening a year ago? Wearing masks and washing our hands till they’re dry and raw?
I try to stay upbeat but those numbers on the website are human beings. Mothers and fathers and grandparents and children. I take a few moments to let that sink in.
I for one am not going out shopping in stores no matter how much they want the economy restarted. I will go during senior hour to get groceries every 2-3 weeks and that’s it. We seniors must be careful.
I am thankful to be healthy and not have to worry about going out to a job. Advertisers are affected just like everyone else so bloggers’ incomes will be down. If they can’t sell goods there’s no point in advertising and it becomes a vicious circle.
But we’re all in this together and we will help one another through all this.
I worry about Kasi having surgery in these circumstances, but there’s not much to be done about that.
Then Kendra is going in for a procedure next week and she’ll have to jump through the same hoops.
