Covid-19 Shutdown Day 8: What did you learn last week?
Connecting while Distancing - Hubby takes drumming lessons from a neighbor and they gave it a try over Facetime. Took a while but they got it to work for them. Happy Hubby is important.
Carrying On - I find my spirits are lifted by cheerful colors so am determinedly wearing them each day. No need to hang out in "grubbies" just because we are at home for the duration. I'm glad I bought this top and cardigan recently as orange in all shades is my favorite color.
What did you learn in the last week that helps you prepare for the future?
I learned that one of the words that my husband connects to me is solutions! I also learned I have been using more toilet paper than absolutely necessary LOL.
More importantly I learned we were not keeping enough back up food and water for the dog and enough food that doesn't require cooking for us in case of more typical emergencies that take the power and possibly water out as well as disrupting supply chains. In an earthquake and wildfire prone area this is important.
I also learned some of the steps to care for an infectious person at home and where our home care supply gaps were for that - especially disinfecting wipes and sprays. We also no longer have a cool mist humidifier but I am on the fence about buying one. The reason I didn't move ours is that we hadn't used it in at least 10 years.
My County's Data - The first death in our county. 30 confirmed cases and still 4 in my town.
