For the most part things have been moving fairly slowly around here. Last week did seem to be busier for a variety of reasons. I finally made us some masks to wear when we buy groceries. Since I make quilts, I have lots of fabric scraps to choose from for making masks and I wanted to make a special one for my husband, Tom. He has always been a superhero fan having grown up on Marvel and DC comics. Even today he never misses any of the movies about those popular characters. So, I made him a mask from some Marvel characters fabric.
We were also busy getting my old Honda Civic cleaned up to loan to my granddaughter, Annika. She was in a car accident recently when someone ran a stoplight and hit her and then drove off. Luckily, she was okay although I know she had to be pretty sore as it totaled her car. It makes me so mad that this was a hit and run accident! I just don’t understand some people. Annika is still working despite the pandemic and has to have a car to get to work and back home. She was hoping to buy one and looked at several but could not find what she wanted that was also in her price range. I have a very old Honda Civic that I had not been driving much since we usually use my husband’s Toyota. Despite the age of the Honda it is still in good running condition. I spent a little time getting it emptied out of my belongings and we cleaned it up inside and out for her. She still wants to get a newer car but this will give her the time she needs to look for one and also save up a bit more money. I was happy to know I could do something to help her out as she has had a run of bad luck recently. My son Chris (Annika’s Dad) brought her out Sunday to pick up the car. It was such a treat to get to spend a little time with them both as we had not seen any family since the pandemic started. We stayed outside and followed social distancing because she has been around many people in her job. But let me tell you, it sure was hard to not be able to give both her and my son a big hug!
We finished the week off with another trip to the grocery store. You know I always have hated buying groceries but I swear, since this pandemic started, I now hate that job even more than before! It was our luck that just when we came out of the store with a cart full of groceries it started pouring rain. By the time we got home and got everything in the house every bag was soaked.
I’m glad last week is behind us now and because I’d like to end this on a happier note, I will leave you with a couple of pictures of my two sweet cats. They each send you lots of purrs and cuddles.
