May it be sunny or misty, it makes no difference. Our planet still has a morning and despite the invisible little hairy peas everywhere nature is still making an appearance. Perhaps the environment disciples (thinking of Greta Thunberg) are now happy that we are no longer destroying our environment, we now have a virus that is doing it for us, because we have shut down and no-one is working.
Yesterday I was not here very often, just in the morning to say hello. I was on a forbidden trip to the store for food which actually went quite well. They let me in, I was given a card of admittance which I had to give back when I left. First of all they sprayed it with disinfection liquid before giving it to me. Me being me, I had to be carefully that I did not lose it on my way through the aisles of the store. I eventually got home and realised that a couple of important things were forgotten. I was so busy concentrating on getting everything and covering our needs for a little longer, that I forgot what I needed for the week-end so today I will be on my way again: just for a few items. I do not intend staying long in the outside world. Everyone was keeping nice safe distances to each other in the store and there seems to be a feeling of togetherness in the air, although I am sure that if one day we will be living a virus free life again, it will all be forgotten and we will look back on it all as something for the history books.
I had a little perk yesterday, just really a very tiny one. I read that our medics are trying normal drugs out on cases of coronus, and in a few cases have found an improvement with certain drugs, particularly one used for Aids problems. Of course it is a small, very small, hope, but that is all we have at the moment. I was on the phone with No. 2 son who lives on the other side of Switzerland and we both realise that it will be a long while until we see each other again. He is OK and his family. They live near the German border and see it from their garden. I also spoke to my friend in London. London is one of the harder hit areas in Britain, which it not surprising looking at the dense population. They have now also closed all restaurants and places where large congregations of people are. It seems the panic buying continues and the search for a toilet roll. Our government has now forbidden more than 5 people in a group.
As I was leaving the store yesterday I looked back and saw almost empty areas, the tills are on the left of the photo. I only had to walk to my car on the right where you can see the black band and was glad to be on the way home again. Perhaps I can show these pictures to my grandchildren in the future, if we have one again.
Otherwise it is so quiet. When I got my car from the underground garage at home I noticed it was full of cars. No-one goes anywhere at the moment unless they have to. People are busy in their gardens or just sitting outside enjoying the weather.
And enough of dark thoughts. As long as our local cherry tree is flowering, we have something positive to see even if it does look a little fuzzy through the mist.
Have a good day everyone, take it as it comes and hope for the best.
