meandering through the covid19 world

Yesterday I went out. I never left the car mind you, but I went out into the world. To pick up my plants from the Philadelphia Unit of the Herb Society of America. I went up to Brooks Coventry Plants.

It was lovely to be out. A beautiful day, a beautiful county. A great day to be alive.

Observations: shopping centers sitting empty is eerie to see. Developments being built that are stopped? Makes me wish they would just disappear and farm and field would return.

Life at a veritable standstill continues to feel unnatural. Or maybe it’s that it’s a pace we don’t understand in our modern world. But not all of the time. Sometimes it’s actually nice. Except that it would be nice to be able to enjoy our slower life pace with our friends and family.

My husband is an awesome guy. He is so calm, and that keeps the rest of us calm. Most of the time.

However, I find myself waking up at odd times of the night. Worrying. I am not consciously worrying but my subconscious works overtime some nights when I am sleeping. Sigh.

How long have we been doing this now? Since March? How do we all get back into the world, wherever in the world it is we live?

I am teaching myself to bake bread. I have been repairing my vintage quilts. I have been gardening. But I will admit my inner domestic diva would love a manicure about now.

Do you find your thoughts jump around sometimes with all this time to ourselves? It’s like ADD by COVID19.

I can tell you I am anxious about upcoming medical appointments that are all turned around and a little sideways because of COVID19. And it’s almost my 9th anniversary post breast cancer…which is why it’s time for all of the testing and meeting with my oncologist. It’s kind of stressful under normal circumstances. Add a sprinkling of COVID19 precautions and new procedures and well…stressful and a little scary.

Well I am still not sure of the rhyme or the reason for this post. It kind of just “is”. We are muddling through but some days it just feels muddling.

Stay well.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Do you see the light at the end of that tunnel? Or is it just sunlight? At this point, I would take either. Be well and am praying we both can get those specialized tests that are so critical to our health.

    • I look up in my garden and I see sunlight. But for this hot mess I kind of just see a tunnel. I’m happy to do my part I just don’t understand because the rules are a constant moving target
