We have a very nice walking path near our house that we have been having fun walking together as a family. I just started a walking challenge with people at work and am trying to get at least 10,000 steps each day if I can. This walking path goes from paved parts through the city to the woods and a nice little waterfall. Along the route there is a little library, we have to remember to bring books with us on future walks.
I helped my dad today. He called me last night and asked if I would help him put in some windows at a house he was working on. He’s replaced all the windows in this house over the years and was on the last two. We did uphold social distancing as the window was 7 feet wide and we each had to hold onto one end. Then when the window was in we were separated by the glass, plus our masks.
It was good to see my dad outside of a zoom window. Our family has been having zoom sessions once a week and while they are great and nice to see everyone I’d much rather be able to see everyone in person.
I don’t know when it will be safe to gather once more. I don’t put that much faith in early loosening of restrictions. We’ve got masks though and do the hand washing so at least there is that and that is more than so many other people are doing. Earlier this week I went to the supermarket to get groceries. I only do this once a week, alone and masked. I see so many people who do not have masks or are wearing them wrong. It is disheartening.
At least there is Some Good News. No, no good news on the virus abating but rather the Some Good News NEtwork that John Krasinski has started and it is really sweet. We watched three of the episodes last night with the kids and they loved it. Eva especially loved the second episode. If you haven’t see in before check out the very first episode.
There are five of them so far. We look forward to more Good News!
