Another Coronavirus Weekend

The days are blurring one into another. It is the weekends that provide some sense of normalcy--when I am supposed to be home and we usually have more things planned into the two days than can reasonably expected to be accomplished. 

Around the Fire Pit

I am sitting here watching Today, which is what I usually do on a Saturday morning. The difference this weekend is that there are not expansive plans, even for the holiday weekend. The Easter dinner planned for 11 people, will not happen. The Easter Egg Hunt with well over 100 eggs stuffed with prizes and cash--will not be hidden throughout the yard. 

It is a sad commentary on where we are in fighting the coronavirus. 

That we are fighting the virus individually from our homes is evident everywhere. Even around our fire pit the other night it was just the two of us, alone, instead of family and friends celebrating the completion of another beautiful day.

There is an interesting graphic opinion piece that I found in the New York Times that chronicles one family's escape from New York City. 

We Left New York With Clothes, Our Cat and Three Bottles of Disinfectant

I found it interesting and I am sure that it is a story that was repeated many times in the earlier days if the outbreak.

I hope each of you are being safe and staying well. Do not let the isolation deprive you of celebrating this holiday weekend. I have become a Zoom warrior. It seems that we are meeting with family, friends, or our church family nearly every night. We are staying in touch!

We may be in this fight individually, but we are not alone!

Happy Easter and a blessed Passover.
