self-quarantine

3.11.20 ~ wind-ruffled feathers

There are 12 detected cases of COVID-19 in Connecticut now, and no doubt there are plenty more undetected cases. Our self-quarantine continues. A few days ago we drove down to the beach and encountered this solitary gull withstanding the wind. It was good to get some fresh air.

The days are passing slowly, hours filled with jigsaw puzzles, yoga, chores, cooking, watching movies, video-chatting with family. Anxiety comes and goes. Hoping we are doing our share of “flattening the curve.”

Flattening A Pandemic’s Curve: Why Staying Home Now Can Save Lives

  1. Getting outside seems to be the best thing to do! I’m going walking with a friend. Keep flattening that curve!

      1. No, no more hugging or shaking hands! It does take getting used to. I’m glad you’re self-quarantining since you are both probably in higher risk groups. Let’s Skype one of these days.

        1. Yes, let’s. Let me know a good time for you. Text me. It is very sobering finding ourselves in a high risk group…

  2. How long are you staying indoors? It looks like most of us in the UK will soon be asked to stay indoors for 16 weeks…! We’re preparing for that… not a great problem for me as I don’t go out very much anyway, but he’s not happy about it. I hope the weather gets better (wasn’t a bad day today but has been horrible for weeks) so that we can get into the garden. Also I’m occupying myself with some watercolour painting that I’ve not done for years.

    I hope things are okay with you, Barbara. x

    1. It’s only been a week so far, it seems much longer than that. Actually, I haven’t been out and about since I got sick in November, except for doctor appointments and quick trips to deserted cemeteries. It’s been much harder keeping Tim at home but he finally stopped going to breakfast with his friends and to club funtions last week. I suspect we will be at home for months. I can’t see resuming contact with others before a vaccine becomes available or the virus will resume spreading. So far we’re fine. I hope you can get out in your garden soon, Val. Being outside is a sanity saver! Keep me posted! *hugs*
