I stopped waiting for my ship to come in – with my luck, if it did come, the crew would all be COVID-19 positive.
Yes, that’s politically incorrect humor – but these days, any humor may be welcome.
In New York State, the lockdown has been extended to May 15. I’m ok with that, actually. Better to be safe at home for someone with like me, who’s in an immunocompromised condition. The good-vs-evil scenario between our country’s President and the various state governors has provided much needed entertainment; in New York State, most of us are grateful we have a strong, smart governor who takes no sh*t from anyone, but does so while maintaining his composure and while keeping politics on the sidelines where they belong during a crisis. Sure, our economy has temporarily tanked, but the continued lockdown will keep some of us alive who may not have survived otherwise; living people will eventually bring the economy back, and only living people can vote. I don’t think New York’s Gov. Cuomo cares much about future voters (as he stated, 600 people died just yesterday; this is not a political conspiracy). Personally, I don’t want to go back to work until it is totally safe to do so.
Life here with Puppy Cody goes on. Poor pup’s learning to keep still, more or less patiently, during a photo shoot:
Until, of course, she’s had enough. Today’s shoot was short-lived. She was in the process of jumping up as I took that last photo. Once up, she made sure I couldn’t catch her again.
Didn’t want to go out much today – believe it or not, despite it being the middle of April, we had enough snow to cover the ground. It’s gone now, but it’s still cold – and muddy. Maybe tomorrow will be better.
Meanwhile, I take whatever photos I can inside. Hence, the dog pictures and the top photo (which I call “Juxtaposition“). And the good news is, I can sometimes devour my props (not the dog, people! never the dog!).
Speaking of eating, we’re doing lots more home cooking:
And I’ve learned to use yeast for baking:
Gotta go. Hubby wants some more of those feather rolls. Who would’ve thought lazy old me would become a bread baker? But to be honest: those rolls are the easiest thing ever – no kneading or rolling required!
Stay home, stay safe, stay healthy. This all will pass eventually.
