4th April 2020 – Saturday
The weather today was so lovely. It was really warm and the sun was shining all day – it was 17°C outside! That is warm for this time of year. It’s such a same the country is on lockdown and people can’t get to really enjoy the weather.
Devon had his facetime piano lesson again this morning. It’s not the same as face to face lessons. You don’t get the intimacy and connection with the teacher. I mean, it is better than nothing but I’m looking forward to when Devon can go back to his real lessons. During this lockdown, more and more people are organising virtual online lessons. From dancing, exercise lessons, online tutorials, even pub quizzes and I even saw a virtual online wine tasting session on Facebook … not sure how that is going to work! I guess everyone is trying to make the best out of this situation and doing what they can to stay connected with one another.
Who know’s how long this is going to go on for.
I sat in the garden for a little while and did some journaling … soaking up those vitamin D rays. I haven’t really been outside that much these days. Not even in the garden. I need to make the effort to sit out in the sun for at least half an hour each day to get that all important vitamin D. Skye and Devon played out in the front yard – at least they got some sun and fresh air.
I spent the afternoon preparing some Vietnamese fried spring rolls for dinner. I love Vietnamese spring rolls, they are a little more fussy to make than your regular spring rolls but so worth the effort.
My sister-in-law buried her dog Bert today. Bert was suppose to be put down the other day but my sister-in-law changed the date to today. They had a little funeral for him and buried him in their back garden. I am not an animal lover. I particularly dislike dogs in general and I don’t understand why people keep animals as pets. But when I heard that Bert was getting put down, it really pulled on my heart strings. It made me feel quite emotional actually … and who would have thought that me, and animal hater would shed a tear for a dog. Well I did. Poor Bert. Wonders never cease eh!?
Hope you are all staying safe, keeping well and social distacing. It’s not much of an ask to stay home is it now? Come on people … just stay at home!
