Shadows and Tall Trees

Day 20

Happy Saturday, friends! Today has been a good day. We all slept in and putzed around for what was left of the morning and early afternoon.  I did some cleaning and laundry while Terry worked outside and Arden played in her room.

I took Romeo for a long walk and noticed that this tree in our front yard is starting to bud. It is nice that even in these uncertain and scary times, some things keep coming back to life.

Around 5 p.m., Arden and I joined Terry on his patrol of the woods. We explored the trails and he cleared some trees that had fallen across a few of them.  It is gorgeous and peaceful in the forest. It was nice to get out in the fresh air for a couple hours (I love the having light longer into the evening!). 

Nothing else to report. I will let the pictures speak for themselves.  Tomorrow is supposed to be even warmer, so I’m hoping we can get some more outside time before the rain moves in again this week. I feel like a lot of our days revolve around the weather – if it is nice, we have a good day; if it is rainy, it is more of a struggle.

News of the Day:

According to tracking from Johns Hopkins University, there are over 1.1 million cases of the coronavirus worldwide.

The U.S. now leads the world with more than 300,000 confirmed cases and 8,400 deaths. Over 14,000 people in the U.S. have recovered from the virus.

President Trump announced in a press briefing Saturday that he’s sending over 1,000 medical personnel to New York City, the epicenter of the outbreak, to arrive by Monday.

Plan for the Day:

We had no plan today – it seemed to serve us well.

See you tomorrow!

Cheers!
