I just dropped Charlie off at acupuncture. Ivy is sitting on the windowsill staring outside.
Sometimes now when I pull up in my car, I see Ivy there staring out. Wonder if she’s waiting on Mom to come home? I often have Charlie with me as I don’t leave the car much anymore.
I had put another quilt in Ivy’s chair, hoping it would keep down the claw marks. I used a quilt that wasn’t quilted but was instead tied.
I was hoping that the softer texture would stay put better.
But Ivy refused to have anything to do with the chair until I moved the quilt. Ivy does not want a quilt or blanket in her chair, it seems.
My clematis is about to bloom. It will bloom until it starts getting hot, and then it will retreat until fall.
My older daughter Kendra has asked that we have three meals a week cooked for us now. So last night we had meatloaf. Oh my word, that was the best and most moist meatloaf I’ve ever eaten.
For those of you who might have missed that post, her boyfriend’s younger brother is a chef and now out of work due to the virus. So he’s cooking meals for people from his home. I think he’s cooking for about six families right now.
She picks it up then she brings me my portion. Typically there is more than enough for me and I can save the rest for the next night or two or I freeze it.
So far we’ve had fish, roast, meatloaf and shepherd’s pie. With the meatloaf there were baked veggies, zucchini and potatoes. And she made a salad for me.
Unfortunately she said her cucumber plants died that she planted a few weeks ago. Might have been the cold snap. We aren’t out of the woods on cold weather yet. I told her to wait until at least the 15th. Maybe we’ll buy plants online and have them delivered.
My favorite nursery that I go to every year, Southwoods, is now selling plants online and you can drive up and they will put them in your car.
Or two people can schedule an appointment for 30 minutes. You must park in a certain place and be wearing gloves and a mask. We might do that.
I’ve been reading about the virus and that when you bring in groceries or whatever you should wipe down the surfaces afterward, etc., and throw the sacks away.
I decided to take everything but the lamp off this piece of furniture in the dining area. When I bring in sacks from outside, I put them here. Then when they’re emptied I throw them away and wipe the surface down.
This way I don’t have to try to remember where I set a sack on what surface, because after awhile it gets confusing.
What ways are you coming up with to deal with changes due to the virus?
