How Y’all Doin’?

Da Goddess @ 22:58

First things first: how are you? Are you and your family healthy and safe? Have you been able to fend off the ennui? Are you reading? Listening to music and/or podcasts? Are you watching TV and/or movies?

How are you passing the time?

Secondly, have you checked in with family and neighbors? Are you a helper?

Thirdly, have you been able to avoid or minimize exposure to the 24/7 news coverage?

Fourthly, what’s up with you these days? Anything new?

Fifthly, are you washing hands? Are you using soap and water and washing for a minimum of 20 seconds? I’d prefer 30 seconds, but blah blah blah. Are you really, truly, honestly washing your goddamn hands? Please let this be your reality. Hand sanitizer pales in comparison to handwashing with soap and water.

Sixthly, my trip to see my daughter and her hubby is on hold. As it should be.

Other than that, life is pretty much the same. I have books, TV, movies, puzzles, games, and the cat. I also have a neighbor who just got a donkey (another got a horse not long before that) and I’m determined to find out where the donkey lives. I’m mostly of the mind that the donkey was brought in as protection against the very busy coyotes we have in our area. They’re quite active. I’ve seen them out on my morning walks — one street over

, at first, then right at our gate — and my landlord has seen them in our yard. They’re well-fed and in good shape, but they got that way because of the abundance of available chow. Chickens (so many chickens here), cats, dogs, bunnies (oh my God, do we have buns!), and squirrels. Who knows what else. So, now the donkey. I love hearing the braying! It’s a nice change of pace.

There you go. My pandemic post. I hope you’re all safe.


  1. Our trip to see my Dad is on hold too… it is what it is.

    We’re here pretty much 24/7 and always ready for a hurricane, so life hasn’t changed much. I’m ordering groceries in instead of going out.

    Other than that, it’s the same. Clean, cook, work out, work in the yard and play with the dogs. I’d read if I could, but there is always Audible. ;)

  2. Ah, yes, you’re one of the few who’s always prepared. *proud parent smile*

    Would you be interested in a list of fun shows I’ve been watching on YouTube? I have many. I’m addicted to so many great new finds, it’s bordering on obsession. Most of the shows are from the U.K.

    Sorry you can’t visit your dad just yet. When this is all said and done, it’ll be even sweeter to be together again.

    Hugs all around!
