Day 55…… Tomorrow I venture back into my school building to pack up my classroom for the summer. My room is mostly cluttered with books that I inherited from a retired teacher. Every year when I try to get rid of some, I get interested in them, and they stay in my room. Maybe this will be the year that I let some go.
Our town just opened up non-essential businesses and restaurants about a week ago. Enough time has not passed yet, to see the effects of this. I had to go to Lowe’s today, to get some roof shingle for repairs of damage done by last week’s storms. The store was packed, and very few people were wearing masks. I took a picture of this vehicle at the local Walmart….
I will go ahead and make a guess that the people who use this vehicle do not feel like they need to participate in stopping the spread of COVID-19. Of course, everyone is free to choose here. We have all been nicely asked to follow the recommendations of the CDC, and follow the “Tennessee Pledge” for opening up in phases.
We recognized Mother’s Day today. I made breakfast for my mom and dad (and myself). After breakfast, I decided to detail my mom’s van. It was a beautiful day, and I really wanted to be outside! I enjoy doing the cars because I feel a sense of accomplishment when I finish. I just hardly ever find an uninterrupted block of time in which to do it. At the end of the day, my older two kids called to say “happy Mother’s Day” and for our regular conversations. The younger two thought to acknowledge it too. I even got a text from the older kids’ father.
Here are some things that made me smile….
Stay well, and show kindness to another….
