The New Normal

I recently noticed the subtle changes around my home because of the New Normal.

When I come home this is where I put my keys and Masks I use during the week.  I have other masks for around the house.

I went outside to try and see the Blue Angels safely.  Alas, I wasn’t in the flight path so sadness.  Gloves and masks rule the day.  Someone please explain this to VP Mike Pence who hates Americans and only cares that he can get a Covid19 test when ever he wants.  American citizen do not have such luxuries.  Insert eye roll here!

 

 

Sheltering-in-Place Activities

I thought I would have so much more time to read during Shelter-in-Place.  It turns out not so much.  All those projects I was ignoring (like the crap piled on the Dining room table) apparently were taunting me to finished them.  So I’ve been doing those things.

Really, I would prefer to read instead!

I was also doing photo shoots with my action figures, HA HA HA!

COVID-19 and the New Normal

Life will never be the same again.  Anyone who thinks that is a fool.  It was through our own arrogance that the pandemic we saw coming seemingly, to some, has obliterated our lives.  We thought America was too strong and noble to be a victim of this deadly plague sweeping across the globe.  We are foolish and now pay the price for being so.

Stay home as much as you can.  Protect yourselves with upgraded hygiene, masks and other protective measures.  If you have to work or better put,  are allowed to work then take the necessary precautions to protect yourself and your loved ones.  For all those morons listening to their wealthy pastors telling them they need to come to church.  God….is everywhere.  One does not need to go to a structure for worship.  That little concept was made to ensure God became a business model.

Be safe people.  Don’t be stupid.  If you are stupid then your tombstone should reflect that stupidity when you die.  Only by being less selfish and more responsible can Americans survive this pandemic.  But alas, that has always been a character flaw with Americans and especially our sitting President.  Selflessness is a weakness and responsibility means finding someone to blame 😦  We are all responsible for the health and well being of our community.  My point is…don’t be a dick!

 

Weird Winter

So this winter has seen very little or no snow in my neighborhood.  It has been cold but those cold snaps always come in after the rain has left the area.  In some ways this is a good thing.  No shoveling so far but in other ways it’s kind of bummer.  No snow days from work.  No playing in the snow with the dogs.

No beautiful Snow pictures 😦

Today it will reach a high of 60 degrees…in February.  I’m not complaining that my heating bill isn’t enormous but I miss the fluffy white stuff.  Probably mostly for the pictures, lol.

Autumn Feelings

I’m so glad the cooler temperatures of Autumn have invaded our little town.  We did experience mid 70’s this weekend but by the evening the cool breezes took over and my descent into crazy hot town was ebbing.

The colors have begun to change.  It’s absolutely glorious!

We did the Scarecrow Festival and there were some super cool ones.

Halloween is this week and I feel sad the month is almost over.  I love October so much.  We will barrel into the “holiday” season with Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year.  So much all at once.  The good part is spending time with family 🙂

Okay, if you have Prime Video and the time to watch something.  Watch the Paul Lynde Halloween Special.  It was camp, very 70’s and a riot!  Happy Almost Halloween!

Yeah October Is Here

October is indeed here and now. Unfortunately so is Climate Change an the nastiness of a 92 degree day 😦  I look forward to Autumn so much and to still be having Summer Temperatures is no bueno!

I’ve already begun watching my Halloween movies/shows.  Hocus Pocus is on the docket for tomorrow night.  It’s much different watching the specials now because we’ve unplugged as they call it.  No more cable so unless it’s on local TV or DVD or Prime or Netflix I don’t watch it.  Now you see why we unplugged.  A bunch of other choices for viewing the boob-tube, lol.

So much to watch and not enough time, lol.  It’s all good though because the weather chicka tells me that the big cool down is on its way and I’m thrilled.  No more AC!!! Wahoo!!!

October is the best month Ever!!!

 

A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood

…and I’m stuck at work.

Why, oh why are the most beautiful days to enjoy the outside the days I must work.  Even getting outside for just an hour at lunchtime will be great but to think about Visiting The Arboretum for a few hours would have been way better 🙂

Last night’s rain cleared out the deep humidity and heat.  I will take it.  Then it’s back to deep summer temps again.  I guess it could be worse.  I could live in Europe where they just can’t get a break 😦

The Girl In The Bubble House

Because of my illness the extreme heat has been holding me hostage in my house.  Granite, not a bad place to be held captive.  I’ve got TV, Computer, Facebook, Angry Birds and the book IT that seems to be taking forever to read even though I’m on page 300, lol.

I’ve spent this time annoying the dogs…like a lot.  Now that the heatwave has snapped and it’s in the high 70’s I got outside.

Today I went to the eye doctor and had my pupils blown up for this picture, lol.    It kind of looks like I’ve had a stroke in this picture.  I assure I haven’t,  I just don’t photograph well 🙂  It’s supposed to rain until tomorrow so hopefully that will further cool things down.  For a bit there I felt like I was living on Mars…it’s hot there too, lol.

 

I Know It’s Summer But…

It’s been super hot and super humid lately.  We’ve suffered through bad thunderstorms that dropped inches of rain in about 20 minutes.  This is not cool.

Yesterday I left work and it was 100 degrees and 78% humidity.  Um, no thank you.

This is a picture my nephew took of the storm that looks like the one Dorothy got caught in.  Let’s just say lots of thunder, lightning and rain.  Today is only going to be 84 Degrees with 74% humidity.  It doesn’t feel much different.

I’m just glad that Air Conditioning was invented because there is no real relief from this mess until Monday/Tuesday of next week.  Until then…God Bless You Willis Carrier!
