It’s been 10 months since we were first quarantined and it has been a long 10 months. My husband and I have stayed at home unless we need groceries and then he goes to get them. Sometimes I ride with him and stay in the car, because the need to be out of the house is overwhelming at times.
We have occasionally eaten lunch at Japan. They have their tables marked off so we don’t have to sit close to other people. Several weeks ago, we went out to lunch at a restaurant that we have gone to for years. Not one of the servers behind the counter, nor the staff waiting on tables, wore a mask.
When I ride to Wal-Mart with my husband, I am astonished at the number of people I see going in without a mask on. They must not realize they are putting themselves at risk as well as the people they encounter. This is such a small task to protect our community from the Covid-19 virus.
I had hoped we would not be quarantined this long, but it looks as though this virus is hanging on and infecting a lot of people.
The vaccines that have finally become available are being distributed now. My prayers are that as more and more of us are vaccinated, the number of COVID-19 cases will decrease.
For now, I occupy my time while staying at home by watching TV, crocheting, working crossword puzzles, playing computer games and reading. I have gotten involved in a series of books by Larry A. Winters. The lead character is Jessie Black, a prosecuting attorney. I can hardly put my Kindle down because this author is so talented.
