As we near the end of the 4th week since stay-at-home restrictions were modified to allow us some breathing room, I’m beginning to wonder how that’ll affect summer vacationers. Access to beaches (not all) were opened to the public but as to be expected, not everyone heeded social-distancing or wore masks. And this is just May! It gives me some relief to see the numbers getting lower, yet it feels uneasy being out in a crowd that thinks or behaves like the Covid-19 is all over and done with.
Which, for the moment, is fine with us to simply avoid them. The flower garden and yard has benefited from daily pest-control. MotH has his woodworking projects lined up. But perhaps the most telling aspect of the current stay-home lifestyle is that MotH has had a taste of what retirement could be like. When asked if it was boring to have so much extra time (he now has 6-hour days, twice a week), his immediate answer was a big No way! I wish every day could be like this.
