What an incredible stunning day! It’s 64º but feels much warmer, sky isn’t as blue as it could be but I’ll take it. There is the lightest of breezes and all the windows are open. The only sound is – birds, just birds. (Okay, right this very minute I can hear a helicopter but given where I live that’s to be expected – spitting distance to the Pentagon, near enough to military bases that on a clear night I can hear them blow taps and 6 miles to the White House – what can I say?)
All winter long I was worrying about my pet tree – a Japanese dogwood. It certainly looked dead as a door knob but – Poof! – just like that, practically overnight, she has leafed out and bloomed again. I love my tree!
Had to go to the grocery store today, I jerry-rigged some masks and lo and behold I got everything I went for – still empty shelves (No soup for you!) but my husband got all his junk food – no, not chips – sweets. I don’t eat sweets other than the occasional superior bit of chocolate. (Damn, I love See’s candy.)
Best of all, sausages just got delivered! I love me my sausage. Saw a posting on Nextdoor over the weekend that a local charcuterie delivered. Who knew there was one here? Not me! Got me some Greek style lamb sausage and Irish style bangers. I love Irish bangers – Guess what’s for dinner tonight – You got it – bangers and mash.
I know the rest of the world is in turmoil but my world is just fabulous – well today anyway. We have lived “lock-down” style for years so our daily lives have not changed at all, until I read the paper (which gets delivered to my door) every morning I am unaware of what is going on in the outside world because except for a weekly trip to the grocery store I am never in the outside world.
I realize most people are having a problem coping with this lockdown lifestyle but for some of us it is life as usual.
