What a Week!


The hubby and I returned to Houston a week ago after a brief stop in Tennessee to deliver a granddaughter home and share Thanksgiving at our daughter’s farm. Though missing the rest of our family, it was wonderful to have five of us around the table.

Getting back to Houston, all was in order. Neighbors had been living in our house while theirs is being remodeled and what a welcome home they gave us. Not only was the house immaculate, they left food, wine and flowers to welcome us back.

Barely settled in, we learned that we had possibly been exposed to Covid as a granddaughter had tested positive. We weren’t too worried as we experienced no symptoms during the week, but we decided to test just to be on the safe side. Good news came this morning when the phone rang and a voice said we were negative. That did allow us to breathe a sigh of relief!

Like so many others, the hubby and I have been so careful abiding by the suggestions to wear a mask, social distance, avoid gathering in large crowds, washing hands, etc. Thanks to InstaCart I’ve not been out yet to observe what is happening in Houston and am hoping to find people exercising the same caution we experienced in Maine.

That being said I was appalled this morning when I saw on TV a news clip showing no one wearing a mask at our president’s Georgia rally. I won’t go into how that made me feel, but I will say it is time for this idiocy to stop. We are in a horrific pandemic that is getting worse by the day partially because some people refuse to abide by recommendations of medical professionals.

I know many of you who read this blog aren’t in the U.S. and are having to deal with your country’s restrictions. It is hard on all of us, but together we can make a difference by doing the right thing.

  1. I know you are both relieved that your tests came back negative. How nice that your neighbors were able to live in your home while you are in Maine, I know they must have been so appreciative. Merry Christmas to you both.

  2. So happy your tests came back negative. People in NC are not as careful as those in Maine, so we are largely staying in. Thank goodness for Netflix and Amazon Prime,. Thank goodness that after being married this many years we still enjoy each other’s company! Merry Christmas 🎄

  3. PREACH, sister!!!!!! PREACH!!!

  4. Amen! You said it perfectly!
    I have friends who have died from this virus… and to see another Rally (late in this Pandemic) with this President… and no masks… appalls me.
