During This Time


I keep reminding myself how blessed I am to have a cozy home to be quarantined in, food in my pantry, meat in my freezer and money to pay my bills!!  

But, I'm so tired of staying at home.


Tiffany and the girls came over one day (since I hadn't been out anywhere) and we had a picnic out in the front yard.


Last week, we had a terrible thunderstorm with lots of hail.  Within 30 minutes, my deck was covered.  Looked like it had snowed.  It was just marble sized so didn't do any damage to anything.


But the intense rains we have been having in between the 70-80 degree days has really made my tomato plant grow.  I keep moving it in and out because of the high winds and storms we have been having.


Everything is really growing.


Had to have my huge tree in the front yard trimmed again - the second time in the four years I have lived here.  It grows so fast.  I told them to trim it back - but, not to take out any of my squirrels' nests.



I kept the three little girls last weekend to give Tiffany a break.  They had been home confined for 7 weeks.  Except for coming over to my house for the picnic, they were homebound.  Because of Kaycee's lung disease, we can't take any chances of exposure of any kind for her.

On Sunday, they announced they were having an Art Car Parade thru the neighborhood.  We found out the exact route and parked in a parking lot and watched it.  This is just a couple of the cars.  I had no idea anything like this existed.  The bottom one had a stuffed Scooby Doo hanging out the window.  The kids enjoyed it.


MY ACCOMPLISHMENT!!!!!!

I finally wallpapered one wall in my master bath.  This is the pink bathroom.  I have had this paper for over a year.  The wall was textured but I used a liner paper which I had never done before.  It feels like an interfacing and you hang it horizonally.  Then hang the wallpaper vertically as usual.  It is so smooth.  The books are all in shades of cream and tan.  I love it.  Will be making a new shower curtain in cream and tan and hopefully it will cut down the pink!!  When the world gets back to a new normal, I'll have the pink shower and floor replaced.  But, for now, I'm okay with it.

Stay safe and well.

  2. hi judy im glad you have had a chance to see your family - we aren't even allowed to visit at a distance here yet, sometimes people wave at their family through a kitchen window but that's it. I like your pink wallpaper, it looks like a nice backdrop to your plans for the bathroom.

    1. thanks Betty. Actually, the wallpaper isn't pink - its all shades of tan and beige. But it does look pink in that photo.

  5. So glad you got to see Tiffany and your grandgirls! I got to see my mom and aunt last week - we had lunch on my aunt's patio. I hadn't seen my mom since mid-March and my aunt since Feb. The only other 2 people I've seen are two friends and we sit in each other's yard in lawn chairs, six feet apart.

    You did a great job on wallpapering your bathroom, especially by yourself. I'm all thumbs when it comes to things like that. It would look like a 2-year old tried to do it. ;-)

    Be well and safe ~ and happy Mother's Day!

  10. I am glad you were able to take the girls so that mom could have a break. This virus is especially scary if you have someone that is at high risk. We also have two in our family that are high risk.
    So nice to see a post from you-I have been in and out of blogging with John's health and the move to condo life. xo Diana
