COVID crush!

COVID Crush

My family has sheltered in place during the COVID lockdown. We only went out for groceries and other essentials... sometimes screws and nails are essentials. I was often the person going out- and Iím a homebody anyway- so I didnít notice the stir crazy building in the rest of my family. I mean Iíve always thought they were a little cuckoo but apparently now part of it was because they wanted desperately to go somewhere other than the backyard and the garage.

My step-daughter was called back to work. She works and lives in a different place, and she just came home when things closed down. So when she started at work again she went back and we decided to go visit her. She lives in a small town and everything is closed there so I found a nearby Conservation Area with a waterfall- waterfalls always cheer everyone up, donít they?

It was only a day trip but we were out of practice going places. We couldnít remember what to bring. Obviously...

COVID Doorman

Posted August 7th, 2020 at 09:11 AM by Sylvano the Wasabus
So I am back at work. My main jobs at the moment are letting people into the building to see the counselors who have offices in the basement and untangling the paperwork that has accumulated while we were closed.

I get to dress in full PPE to open the door. Mask, clear face shield, sterile gloves and gown. I meet them at the door and have to ask them health questions.

Do you have fever? A cough? Breathing difficulties? No? Then you can come in. No one has answered yes to any query yet. I suppose Iíll have to turn them away if they do.

Then they can come in to the hand sanitizer station where they lather up before using the elevator.

When they exit the elevator in the basement where they counselorsí offices are I call the elevator back and sanitize it. Spraying and polishing. Thatís it. Thatís my job.

This morning I had an elderly woman with dementia. Her husband dropped her off. She didnít want to wear her...

COVID Chronicles

Posted July 30th, 2020 at 12:51 PM by Sylvano the Wasabus
When this whole COVID pandemic started I was just like everybody else. Didnít know much. Then the lockdowns started. Where I work most people were told to stay home and were laid off. I got the flu one day and it freaked everyone out. Then they shut down my work place completely.

I didnít mind staying home. I decided to sell my house, so I began fixing it up and cleaning it out. In the beginning getting wood for repairs and new flooring and ceilings was a hassle- waiting in line to go in the store, socially distanced. Then the store was shut down. It was an inconvenience but I didnít let it slow me down.

I still walked every morning, but now the streets of this city were deserted. On an hour long walk I might only see two people and a handful of cars. And I thought I finally have enough room. Iím not a real social person. I donít like crowds or bars. I like privacy and space. And I finally had it. If someone was walking near me weíd both move further away....

Wagguan?

I wish I could say the world was an older and wiser place. Itís certainly older, but not much wiser. Or maybe itís just me?

Thanks for your greeting, Kowalski. My tribe are doing well. I do read things on this site weekly at least, but I donít seem to have so much to say anymore. At some point one gets tired of oneís own thoughts and musings.

Three of my children are 18+. One is married. They have jobs and are finding their way in the world. They have begun to scatter, like baby spiders riding the wind with their little cobweb parachutes.

I have a 12 year old still at home, who has been brainwashed by fortnite. Heíll play Scape, but he doesnít like to make decisions and lose. He likes shaking dice. Weíve tried playing 2V2 games- both of us on one side versus both of us on the other side, but heís not really into it. He plays fortnite with all his friends and school mates so itís a very social thing for him.

Break In

Posted March 23rd, 2018 at 12:46 PM by Sylvano the Wasabus
It seems these three things set the stage for the robbery:

1) I had just baked banana muffins

2) I had been gluing figures and left them to dry on the dryer in the laundry room beside the window

3) It looked like no one was home even in the middle of the day

Now letís examine these issues one at a time.

Baking
I used to bake a lot and am known for my baking skills. (yes, itís a skill set; if you donít believe it, thatís because youíve never tasted anything that was made by a real baker)

When my kids were smaller I baked twice a week: cookies, cakes, muffins. But then Iíd leave to go to work and when I came back half to three-quarters of the baked goods would be missing. Iíd question the kids and they promised that none of them had eaten anything. So it was obvious that someone was breaking in and taking the cookies. Shocking, but it must be true because my children wouldnít lie.
