Week 7 of Shutdown: Making the most of May at home

So what is happening as we continue in shutdown? I'm trying to find ways to feel like the days aren't just drifting by but am not sure that is much different from our early days after moving here lol.

- I learned that the Bay area has extended their shutdown to May 31st. Our county is easing just a tiny bit for retail with curbside pickup and some other type of businesses that can prove they are meeting certain requirements.

- I finally gave our dog a haircut using dog grooming scissors and she held really still for me. I can't imagine doing it with a wiggly dog. I did skip her tail and ears as they don't make her hot. She seems quite happy to be rid of the equivalent of a heavy sweater! Thank goodness her hair is curly and thus quite forgiving of somewhat varying lengths and she doesn't look lopsided or anything.


- I'm busy starting to take action on being my club's President. Lots to do and learn plus the challenge of the times.

  1. You did a great job on the dog! They do get hot with all that hair and get skin conditions if it's left too long.

    Our state is adding a few business categories every week. Hopefully our curve won't go back up.

    1. Thank you. I'm hoping our states don't get worse. My county's curve has not started going down so the opening up is very limited. Retail that can do curb pickup and some manufacturing that can prove they are taking all the required precautions. No dog grooming or hair salons lol.

  3. Your dog looks great--i cut hubby's hair last week. You did a better job on your dog than I did on him.

    1. Thanks for the laugh! The poodle girl's hair being very curly is a great help as the fact they she has no opinion about her looks lol.

  4. What a great job you did on your sweet pup!! Do you make house calls? I am desperate for a trim. I will hold still, too.

    Today is a hard day for me. I have a couple of good days and then a bad one. Guess it goes with the territory.

Week 5: A slow start to the shortest month

Someday I'll have to look up and remember why February only has 28 days - except for leap years of course. I have big hopes for this sho...
