One thing I've been thinking about is what I am going to do differently when this is over. So far the list is pretty short -
- Connect via phone, Facetime or Zoom more often with loved ones rather than using emails and texts
- Buy a laptop so I can do this without using Hubby's
- Stock up further for at least 2 weeks survival at home with the emphasis on earthquakes with the accompanying utility outages, but also for long illness when utilities are available. Include things to do to keep occupied!
Have you thought of anything you want to do differently once this is over?
"Nana - Ryan saw all the colors of the rainbow and MORE on her neighborhood walk today. Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, white, black, silver, and pink! We challenge you to find the rainbow on YOUR next walk!"
It was accompanied by photos of lots of flowers and foliage. I decided to take pictures of the colors in things that weren't flowers to send back to her. It was fun to do a long distance scavenger hunt for a 3 year old to enjoy.
Carrying On - With my mood and energy back I kept myself busy and had a much better day.
Thankful For - People here who are taking walks, running or biking taking social distancing seriously so it is safe for all of us to get some exercise outside. People are also trying hard to smile and say something friendly too as you pass them.
My County's Data - They have expanded the data shared so this morning it said the following plus a table by age and another by city or unincorporated area. Interestingly my small city has as many or more cases as the larger ones.
I like seeing the Recovered and Ever Hospitalized numbers as it provides a clearer picture of what is happening and puts it in better perspective. Hopefully it will help other people feel better about their chances too.
