This is day 20 for my son and me

We were in lockdown quicker than the rest of the country because it hit here first

Every morning I wake then check my body for signs of disease none so far it is not far fetched to say I’ve been in training for this my entire life and except for not going to the store nothing drastic has changed for me it’s different for my son as he is a highly social animal

All my friends are accounted for Alice emailed me today to my great relief I’ve even been in contact with people I haven’t seen in years some more toxic than others still this all feels like a giant funeral phone tree

My ex company is shutting down operations on the factory side only for two weeks which is not as dreadful for the company as it sounds as they shut down for two weeks every xmess and know how to work a skeleton crew still I’d be a liar if I didn’t tell you that I’m goddamned worried about my pension and what might happen but I am for the most part living in the now


and  breathing through it

I honestly think that's the best we can do right now. Sending love from Lloyd to your island.

Yep. That and plant a shit ton of wild flowers which I plan on doing at the first thaw. I got 50,000 seeds that I’m going to sprinkle around my woods. 🌸

I'm trying my best to live in the now. Some days better than others. Stealing cuttings of plants from around my fancy neighborhood and rat-proofing my chicken coop and making a million cloth napkins from the boys' old sheets.

I'm thinking about planting a garden -- something I haven't done in years. I might never leave my house again.

I think the universe is trying to teach us all to live in the expansive now. I'm definitely still learning. Hello, there. We will be okay.

Ramona Q I got all my cloth napkins out for us to fancy us up a bit. I love how you’re cultivating your garden I would do the same if I could and have done in the past ❤️

Elizabeth it is something to do and it allows me to be patient something I’m not very good at and in the end of summer a ripe tomato sandwich now I’m drooling❤️
