SELF-ISOLATION, DAY 20

SELF-ISOLATION, DAY 20 Hello again. Late day again. Was not supposed to be but the guy who is the department lead, who has self-quarantined, likely will not be back for at least a week; no one seems to know. That leaves me, the part-time liquor dude to manage the inventory as it were. Had a... Read more »

SELF-ISOLATION, DAY 19; MAKE MY DAY!

SELF-ISOLATION, DAY 19;  MAKE MY DAY This Lady made my day   I have been a little ashamed the past 2 days I was tired and kind of down. Of course, we all go up and down. One thing I have learned over the past several years has been that when I feel down, sad;... Read more »

SELF-ISOLATION, DAY 18

SELF-ISOLATION, DAY 18 I should have started earlier today. I’m very tired now. My dog had her Vet visit and had blood drawn and I won’t know for a week what the results are. So, frustrating. So, work was very busy. The store was not very busy but more people have called out, “self-quarantining” it’s... Read more »

SELF-ISOLATION, DAY 17

SELF-ISOLATION, DAY 17 Finally! Day 17! 17 is my favorite number. I do not remember when it became my favorite number and certainly not why. But that really does not matter. I suppose most people have a favorite number. In western religions, Judeo-Christian I guess, some numbers are popular, like 3 and 7. Then there... Read more »

SELF-ISOLATION, DAY 16

SELF-ISOLATION, DAY 16   Wow, some days are easier than others. The good thing about today, well 2 things: one is the online/ZOOM discussion group this evening, which I love. I don’t know how many of us there are, 10 or so I guess. But seeing each other’s faces on the computer screen is good.... Read more »

COOKING IN SELF-ISOLATION

COOKING WHILE ISOLATED And if you want an interesting story don’t expect it all to be true.   So I’m standing in front of my stove cooking vegetables with beans. Well, to be honest, and as I said I don’t like to go that way too much, but to be honest, it was shredded carrots... Read more »

SELF-ISOLATION, DAY 15

SELF-ISOLATION, DAY 15, already Time is flying by. I am so used to having some kind of deadline; a date by which I need to do something. Most of these deadlines and goals or projects, things I want or need to do, either no longer exist or they exist only in my mind. Well, most... Read more »

SELF-ISOLATION, DAY 14

SELF-ISOLATION, DAY 14 This is my second stab at writing today. Last night, or early this morning, about 2:30 AM I awoke, as I often do, and sat down and started typing. Later I realized it was kind of a political rant, which was not what I wanted. So, trying again. This is just sort... Read more »

SELF-ISOLATION, DAY 13

SELF-ISOLATION, DAY 13   We are still in it. Yes, will likely become much worse. But that should not panic us, should not push us into fleeing like from a tornado or tsunami. This is different. We cannot flee from the tiniest microorganism which does a kind of reverse food chain on us. We feast... Read more »

SELF-ISOLATION, DAY 12

SELF-ISOLATION, DAY 12   I intend to keep this up. I am tired today, but not sick. 12 is a good number; a dozen, a number divisible by itself, 6,4,3,2 and 1. I realize my attitude is changing. A week or two ago when I saw the isolated customer with a mask, I thought they... Read more »
