Dispatches from the Distancing – Day 47

What day is it?

The days in our life are now weekdays and weekends, no other distinction.  Wednesday is a little easier to remember because Chris has a weekly call with his teacher so that is at least something to differentiate it.

I can’t say there was much today that was notable.  School went well, although Chris and the Google Music Lab is a bad combination.  He hasn’t figured out that I know when he’s messing around because I can hear it!  Lillie apparently has a virtual science fair coming up, but that is all the information we have so far.  However, science is Pat’s territory, so I’m going to let him deal with that one.

Since this started, I’ve been trying to get back into yoga.  I guess I shouldn’t say “back” into yoga because, while I’ve dipped my toes in it, I’ve never actually been into yoga.  I’m doing the most basic workouts from Yoga with Adrienne.  Today I moved onto her Foundation of Flow video and there are no words that can capture my level of sucking at it.  But, it looks like it will be a while before I can get back to the gym, so I’ll stick with this for the time being.

Pat and I did get out for a lunch time walk and I snapped a picture of our rose bushes that have started to bloom!


This is about a week earlier than usual, but it is a welcome sight.  Pat is the one who takes care of these and he does a wonderful job.  We have a new bush, which has not bloomed yet, but it is a Cherry Parfait rose.  That is a variety that I saw and liked last summer at Shore Acres and Pat bought me a bush for Valentine’s Day.  I’ll be sure to post a picture when we get our first bloom.

Tomorrow (April 30th) is Pat’s birthday, so please send him well wishes!  We’ll be having a low-key day because there isn’t much else we can do, but I’m sure that he would appreciate hearing from friends and family.

  1. Your roses are gorgeous. Our plants are just b eginning to come up and the leaves on the trees to open. Looking forward to what the garden will bring up this year. You never know. We sprinkled some flower seeds early this year.

    47 days already of distancing and staying in. And counting….
