COVID Diaries: Day 45

Yesterday I hit the Friday wall.  I was so exhausted that I went to bed about 6 pm, slept until 8:30 pm, and then slept from about 10:30 pm to 6:30 this morning.  I guess I really needed it!

Today we are supposed to have heavy rain and thunderstorms so I went for a decent walk first thing in the morning. The university campus was once again, sparsely populated…


When I got home the sun was peeking out, so I did some weeding and raking (with my new 8 inch wide shrub rake) in the garden beds until the rain got more serious.  I must say though that my yard and garden isn’t in as tip-top shape as so many others that I hear about, since I still work 40+ hours per week, but I feel like I’m making some progress!

I planted the yellow/green colored Golden Millet grass that I bought on my grocery run last weekend.  It will go nicely with the Emerald Gold Euonymus shrub that I planted years ago and is still struggling to get established…  Each year it is the little shrub that could – never gaining much of a foothold but refusing to die.  Maybe this is the year!

The rest of my day promises to be wildly exciting.  I finished a puzzle Thursday night so I might start a new one, read one or both of my current books, or do more writing here on the blog!

I hope you are all staying safe, and hopefully your weather is sunnier and warmer than mine!

    • That sounds like fun! We still have a ban on any gatherings that aren’t with people who live in your own house. Which for me means nobody but my cat… For at least another 3 weeks. Or a month. Or forever. Our Governor’s updates are a bit unclear…

      • This social distancing is lasting forever! Our group was outside, and we kept our distance. NC is allowing groups of ten to meet inside, so we were within the guidelines. If the state wanted to ruin our enjoyment, it did not succeed.

        That’s a shame that you are so terribly cut off. I really feel sorry for you and hope the rules will be relaxed soon.

      • I doubt that our rules will be much relaxed until mid-summer at least. We are still not supposed to meet with anyone outside our own house (so for me that’s no one), but I can definitely see people’s resolve is waning…
