#MondayThoughts: Trudging


It’s another gray day here, low, dull clouds, not a lot of birds flitting. Maybe it’s going to rain.

Who knows.

It’s been a long stretch of shelter-in-place, and as itchy as I am for it to end, I wonder how long until it’s safe, actually safe, genuinely safe. We are reminded of the Spanish flu, which did some damage the first winter, but then devastated the next fall.

We don’t want that.

As they work on vaccines, and we hang in, hang in, hang in, I marvel at an incompetence so vast, so all-encompassing, it cannot be accidental. And still he pushes to make it worse.

And that is Monday in a pandemic.

I am pithless today, and need to make some masks for errands I’ll have this week, so I will go work on that. And I hope you have as good and as productive a Monday as you can.

  1. As someone married to an over 70 I’m not going far even if restrictions are lifted. We do a daily walk around the Botanic Gardens which are near our house and fortunately large enough not to have to be near other people. My daughter (living elsewhere) is sick. She went to the doctor today and was diagnosed with a gastro upset – she’s had it for a week. She was not tested for Covid-19. I’m hoping she is OK. All the best to you in the USA from Australia.

    • Thank you so much! Oh I hope she’s OK and recovers quickly! That’s so hard that she’s not nearby.

      That’s lovely that you can do that, I’m sure it’s gorgeous for a walk too. Our parks are still closed, unfortunately.

      I’m glad you’re taking such good care of yourself, and you’re wise, it’s just not worth the risk.
