I suppose I should have taken a selfie today. Subject: me rocking my “homemade” face mask. You know those micro fibre cleaning cloths? Yup. Folded one over three times, threaded elastic bands through the ends, folded cloth over bands, attached to face. This fashion statement was made even more effective by today’s “in” fashion hue – bright orange with a smattering of bleach stains.
But it worked. People took one look at me and kept their distance big time.
Yeah – I went into town today to do a week’s worth of shopping for three of us. Mainly this consisted of 20 or more bananas and an equal number of apples. At the very least we will be very healthy.
Simon is in Vancouver, having left the house a bit late because his windshield wiper blade flew off/broke off. But my resourceful man happened to have a spare blade which he attached. Whew!
Tomorrow he returns with Alisa and birds. Cool. Playmates for the dogs. Hehehe.
And then on Monday we turn right around and drive back to the Island. I powered through stuff today, like cancelling my internet, a process that took only 2 hours wait time on the phone. (!!)
And calling U-haul to make sure they had packing supplies and boxes. They do – but not blankets because of Corona.
The most exciting part of my day was taking the truck down the driveway to do the grocery shopping. It’s a rear wheel drive. The driveway is downhill. It was icy. At one point it felt like I was trying to rein in a toboggan, praying there were no cars coming down the highway because I might just plummet out onto the pavement.
Luckily, all was well, except for my stress levels, which shot through the roof.
And that, gentle reader, is exactly why I had to stop at the liquor store and purchase a bottle of wine.
I cannot be blamed.
