I had a headache yesterday - & tried to take a break - difficult to do when the world is under quarintine - more so when you realize many Canadins are not home... Canadians I know.
I learned of several a the day wenton- I know how worried I am as a mother (all of us) -worring about my own son, whom I told at the start of this- stock up! I't's going to be a pandemic - but he did not listen to his mother - what else is new... and left it till the last minute. That's frustraiting, so I can only imagine how my friend feels - her son stuck in California! It was/is March break in Canada- so timing was not great- ACTUALLY -
had OUR Government ACTED SOONER - as they were aware of the problem in China.. many would not be stuck & scrambling now with inflated airline tickets and panicked airports full of such humans. Once home- I hope people take the 2 weeks self quarantine seriously.
I know people who are currently ill, sick "it' just a cold - (I think) ..." they claim, stay the fuck home - it's just a cold. It's careless to behave as such during currently times- I don't care "if it's just a cold - (self diagnosed) stay away. What does it take for people to understand? Don't go out and spread it around - it's that simple.
What's not simple is stressing over $, food or illness... someone complained they are getting grumpy with no cannabis- (already) and it's bothering his sciatica - wow. I KNOW people who can't afford food right now for two weeks quarantine, are worried about not making rent - since they can't work - let alone money for cannabis. So if you are getting grumpy because you don't have cannabis - take a look around you, I bet there are people in unfortunate situations with much bigger concerns right now than bud.
I hope I am wrong (really) about the thoughts I have of the direction this is going..
8 weeks easy. Longer for schools and retirement homes. etc..
We are currently in week - one? I take anti inflammatories, my wrist so sore as I type- I would not be able to paint without & Italy is warning against them- stating they believe it makes the Corona Virus worse... what to do.. ask my wrists. I need to paint.
I need to paint and keep busy & give my own brain a break today, no social media.
All I can do if think positive, pray for the safe return of all I know.. and Be here now- grateful for another opportunity to hang out with my dogs - all so excited for another daily quiet quarantine adventure!
I love this community, talk about 'make you feel better'.. if you can't get out, are worried you can have your groceries delivered free by the Rotary club, people offering all sort of assistance. You can still buy online from local business - I noticed a kombucha creator advertising -free local delivery! I sent an IG message & had my kombucha delivered to my door! 6 pack- the lovely young man Luc, removed the log in my driveway (I was going to meet him) he said it was very easy - yes, for him. lol We greeted- "no shaking hands" a
& I NOW have the best Kombucha I've ever tried! Really.
It's all I drink (my wine in the evening) and this orange turmeric is TERRIFIC! If you like kombucha I highly recommend Luc's Brew , what a nice young man too! I'm impressed with his Brew, his attitude & business creativity.
I am also a fan of Canoe Radio! Boy oh boy do they have a difficult time - it's one thing to live this but to educate the masses as we go along... not an easy task. If you want to hear what my community is like with great music - listen to Canoe.
oh, this kitty being created- today, on my instagram account.
