Pandemic Edition April 17, 2020

1. Days are all kind of blending into the same. Yet, I'm glad I live in a state where a governor has stepped up and is actually trying to do something with this pandemic.

2. Today tRump tweeted this:

Then right after he tweeted this, right-wing protesters protested in front of Mineesota governor's home. And if you read that first tweet, it implies that Virginia will take away their guns.

This is frightening.

And yet nothing still isn't being done.

3. Here's a link to the protesters:

Updated: April 17, 2020 04:59 PM
Created: April 17, 2020 10:51 AM Friday morning, President Donald Trump responded to a planned protest at the Minnesota Governor's Residence over the state's 'stay at home' order aimed at combating COVID-19.  The president tweeted, "LIBERATE MINNESOTA," which is the name used by the event's organizers on social media.

Pandemic Easter Edition-April 12, 2020

**As of today there are 9100+ cases of Covid-19.  In the US 525,000+ cases and 20,414 deaths. Well, tRump was right. He said he'd make us 'Number 1' in the world. Only in this case we're #1 in deaths.

1. Today is Easter and well, since California still has a Stay at Home order, no church services. I did watch this from Andrea Bocelli:

Gorgeous backdrop in a church in Milan.

2. Speaking of Stay at Home order, California governor Newsom just extended it to May 15th.

Which means we'll be in quarantine for two months. Add to the time I've been home after breaking my ankle. Over 4 months.

And this is becoming our new 'norm'. Going outside wearing masks. Social distancing.

Can't wait when this is over....

3. Loved this new version of SNL.

4. Also loved attending a zoom session of OCCRWA. The speaker spoke on the darkest moment in your writing.

5. Able to walk a little more. Not much, but it's something.

Stay home. Stay safe. And wash your hands for 2…

Pandemic Edition Thursday April 9, 2020

1. So my usual schedule now with the Stay at Home order is something like this:

8:30 get up when husband goes into his office to work
9-10am Heat ankle while watching NY governor Cuomo's daily reports.
10-11am Do physical therapy stretches; check emails; read social media
11-12am write
12 Lunch watch Ca Governor Newsom's daily reports
1-3pm Write/research
3-4 Go over Italian lessons
4-5 Read
5 Dinner
5-6 watch news/LA mayor's daily report
6-7 Heat ankle and later do physical therapy exercises
10 bed


We're been good social distancing and staying home. Husband goes out 1-2xs a week to grocery shop
Son goes out 2xs to shop and help out with errands

2. As of today here's the Covid-19 cases/deaths

ORANGE COUNTY, CA —The number of new coronavirus cases increased by 67 on Thursday, the Orange County Health Care Agency reported. A total of 1,079 have tested positive for the virus since the agency began collecting data in Orange County. It is not yet known how many…

Pandemic Edition Monday April 6, 2020

Going on third week of Stay at Home order here in California. I'm still not able to walk with crutches and a boot. I canceled my physical therapy appointment last Friday after LA mayor and then our governor told us to wear masks when we leave our houses. Since I didn't have a mask, I didn't go to appointment.

1. The only time husband leaves is to go shopping and then pick up curbside dinner. So two times a week. Son goes out to do some shopping and picks up some things for me. Today he did wear gloves and the other day wore a mask.

The big thing now is making your own masks.

2. My daily Stay at Home schedule includes mediating for 10 minutes, doing physical therapy stretches, and watching NY governor Cuomo and later Ca governor Newman's daily conferences. I refuse to watch tRump's so-called conferences, which are really 'rallies'.

3. Most people here in California are following the Stay at Home order, but there are a few that aren't and are putting us a…

1. So husband broke down and wore a mask when he went out to go grocery shopping. Said he saw others doing the same thing.  The thing is there's so much misinfo out there right now and when Dr. Fauci was asked about it? Here's what he said:

'It's under serious consideration':

2. So my daily schedule looking like this:

8:30am up/get ready for day
9:30am feed Damon, get breakfast
10:00am watch CNN for updates on Covid-19 virus **Unless it's tRump, then I turn off TV
10-11am heat ankle and do physical therapy exercises
12 lunch
1-3 **Writing time
3pm Italian lessons
4pm Read
5pm Dinner
6pm clean up/heat ankle
6-7pm physical therapy
8-10pm TV
I've been going to bed around 11-11:30pm

**Then repeat.

My goals are to be able to drive again on April 11th and pick up a Coffee Bean & Tea leaf drink:


Currently reading BETWEEN BURNING WORLDS which is a futuristic retelling of Les…

Pandemic Edition Sunday March 29, 2020

1. So the US is now the highest nation in the world with the most deaths of the Covid-19 virus.

And then tRump tweeted this:

“President Trump is a ratings hit. Since reviving the daily White House briefing Mr. Trump and his coronavirus updates have attracted an average audience of 8.5 million on cable news, roughly the viewership of the season finale of ‘The Bachelor.’ Numbers are continuing to rise...

Pandemic Edition Thursday March 26, 2020

1. Watched CNN interview with Dr. Fauci. He's someone I trust. Also an interview with Bill Gates who went over the pandemic and his views/suggestions.

Like I said before I'm only listening to our governor, scientists, and doctors.

Here's the status so far on the Covid-19 virus.

And tRump goes on Fox news and says it's all overblown. Makes me ill and very afraid.

2. During our Stay at Home order, I've been taking online Italian classes. Also catching up on reading.

Just finished reading GIRLS WITH RAZOR HEARTS by Suzanne Young.

My YA Books Central review:

3. Didn't go shopping today. Did get an email from Walmart saying my order was delayed. Ugh. And I'd do anything for antibacterial wipes. No one has any.

4. Still going to physical therapy and doing my daily stretches. I can walk using my boot to and from a few rooms. I hope I …
