As I mentioned in my last two blogs, both Steve and I had been sick. It had been going on too long. We had been sick for 8 days and it was not getting any better. We were worn out and depleted. Digestive issues, fatique and coughing topped the list. No fever, no runny nose and no shakes.
Although we are mostly isolated and not out in public places, we try to be as cautious as we can. We could not figure out where we could have picked up covid, so we didn't really think it was that.
We did take care of the youngest granddaughter for 2 days the week before last, and she had a cough. She had just been covid tested as a pre-surgery precaution, and was negative, but she still was coughing up a storm and bleary head stuff. She needed to be isolated before her eye surgery and could not be in daycare. So Grandma and Grandpa to the rescue and we watched her for two days, while she was sick. Then on top of that, we next found out that we were inadvertantly exposed to a person who had been exposed to a positive covid tested sick person.
So it was time we call the doc and make the appointment for a covid test for ourselves. We went through the checklist at 4 p.m. and got set up for the next morning at 8 a.m., how nice is that?
We did the drive up thing and it was the easy nose swab, not the deep nasal cavity one. Whew. It was done and over in seconds. Then we only had to wait less than 48 hours, and each of us had a NEGATIVE!!!!!!
We celebrated with a TOAST....
"Entertainment is now effectively curtailed"
I ordered three 2-packs of these solar post lights to put on top of each post. I am going to first paint them red and then we will set them up. I think they will look cute and help illuminate the area at night.
I am not sure yet what I am going to put in it,
perhaps weaving shuttles and weaving tools,
or maybe cones of yarns?
Or it could be stacks of fabric blocks as I work on a quilt.
I don't know.
Anyhow, I just loved it and couldn't pass it up.
