We are still under mild lockdown(staying at home, work from home if you can, schools closed, restaurants etc. closed, only go out for grocerie shopping, making a litle walk is okay, but maintain distance, etc.).
And it is not always easy, and now I am talking just about us two in one house, we don;t have children, that cannot go to school, still have to get lessons on line as much as possible, young children can go out on the street to play, but in very small groups of perhaps 3 and for short time during day. we can do our shopping still ourselves, well, I do that, better not let Jan go into shops etc, bit risky.
This will last at least till and of April and then we will see how things are going.
It seems in our country the Covid infections and intaking on IC is flattening down a tiny little bit, but nothing to get very excited about yet. The result of all measures taken will be visible perhaps at the end of the month.
This all meaning it is still a tricky situation, and also getting very difficult for all kind of small or bigger entrepreneurs.
It all is sounding very depressing, yes it is and yet we must try to keep our common sense and not let fear for the "unknown"take over.
Perhaps it is very easy said, but it is the only thing we can do.
So let's keep ourselves busy in any kind of way.
I am still working on the green afghan, I think I am almost there to finish it
(it will not be a very large one this time), then I must make an edging on it,
that will make it look much better. Oh, there are lots of edgings you can make,
but i think I will not make it too difficult.
Every now and then I do some housekeeping stuff, yes, unbelievable but true LOL,
😁, and I also try to make our meals as easy but also tasty every day. That is
sometimes a hard thing to do, having to think what to eat for dinner. Well, most of the time I am more or less successful. That keeps me busy, because I try to prepare in advance for the evening.
For example today I've made already small kebeb on skewers
something like on this photoAlso boiled bigger chunks of potatoes, those I will put in the oven with some oil, seasoned a bit, so that they will get a nice crispy crust, and I have mini tomatoes and some corn salad.
Should be quite enough, don;t you think?
Last week Jan kept himself busy in the garden a;most every day. For one or sometimes two hours he was busy re-arranging pots, filling them, also weeding and filling garbage sacs full with sweeped up needles from the trees and some leaves came too, hahahaa. Now we have I think standing 8 big sacs standing in the garden and two bundles of pruning stuff waiting to be picked up. I've made an appointment with he collection service for garden waste. The earliest date they could come was on the 14th of April! Gosh, that takes time. I guess lots of people are working in their gardens now and there is a much bigger offer of garden waste to be picked up. But okay, at least it will be done.
Now a little bright note to that. I suddenly noticed that there has been a start with road works close to our road. Gosh, perhaps the week of the pick up they would be busy on our part and may be it wouldn;t be possible to put the garden stuff at the edge of the sidewalk.
Good, a few days ago I had to go out for grocerie shopping and I walked to a man who seemed to be a teamleader of the roadworkers(yes, I kept the distance of 1,5 mtr!). I asked him if he knew if they would be busy on our part at that date and told him of the garden stuff pick up. He asnwered that he didn;t know but that he would ask the supervisor. I asked him if he could come to our door to tell me the result(it was close of where they were working at the time) and he said he would do that. He wrote our housenumber on his hand and that was it. And yes, it worked!!!
Next day at about 11 in the morning the doorbell rang and there was that ever so nice man to tell me, we easily could put the stuff outside, because at that time they wouldn;t be working at our part.
Now I call that a super service! It just made my day!
This week we will have real nice weather, they say we can have temperatures to 18-20C! with little wind and only a little bit of rain.
Gosh, just now that is becoming nice weather we will have to stay in. And here we are priveleged, because we have a garden to sit in. Also people in an appartement with a balcony, how tiny it may be, still have possibility to enjoy a bit the sunshine.
It is more difficult for people who haven't those possibilities. Lucky here we still can go out for a walk, only people cannot go in bunches to parcs or the seaside or woods. There are restrictions and even close downs for it.
About time I finish my rambling now, wishing you all a good week, hopefully everybody is still safe and will be.
Jan and I are still okay, thank God for that.
Try to keep up the spirit, till next week!
Good, I think I rambled enough for today adn will finish now.
I just hope everybody is still okay, Jan and I are still okay, let's hope it will stay this way.
