Photos and memes that tell a small part of the story… as we’re experiencing it here on A Street.

This is a dishtowel that is actually hanging on the oven door. And yeah… it IS our first rodeo. Seems to say a lot about how prepared we are and how we are moving through this weird and unique time in all of our lives: quite uncertainly.



We do a lot of this in our house… mostly because it’s interesting, but also, were a virus to invade our bodies, it might show up as a drop in blood oxygen levels. So at least we’ll know that. 



This isn’t my check list, but it has some worthy goals on it…

Yes… cooking a lot, baking a lot, eating a lot. Fortunately, exercising a lot.. though perhaps not enough.

To be quite honest, I’m prepared to go the distance. I can take another month, or six… whatever it takes. I have a feeling there will be increasing movement toward relaxation of the guidelines. At this moment, that sounds like a terrible, terrible idea. But we’ll see, I guess. Given the lag time between exposure and illness, we won’t know what all this current easing will yield for a couple of weeks.

Of course, I have the luxury of an easy decision; not everybody does. I am very aware of that and feel for those who are stressed and suffering. The path forward for the collective whole is not clear and not easy.

But until there’s a vaccine, I don’t expect I’ll be changing very much of my day-to-day practices.  I’m satisfied with the notion of holing up until we get a true all clear.  I don’t mind just staying out of the way, not pushing any boundaries. I’m getting better at making the most of my time and learning a lot. So there’s that.
