Well, it's 4th of July weekend. A Quarantine 4th. Just as everything was starting to open and things were up and running, we have shut down once again. In our area, it is due to several things. First and foremost, as soon as we entered the green phase, people pretended the virus was behind us and went out in mass without wearing masks. Dumb, dumb, stupid! Another reason is that as soon as bars opened, people packed into them. A third reason is that people ran to the beaches, did not practice social distancing and came back and breathed...without masks. BINGO! So, we are all back in hiding because face it, that virus is just sitting out there looking for hosts. It's a shame you can't look out your window and see it because that would be a great deterrent. If you looked out your window and saw swarms of murder hornets, I bet you wouldn't go outside.
On top of all of this, we are having killer, hot, dry weather. We are looking at 90+ weather for weeks with no rain in sight. So, I am dreaming of Fall.
Unfortunately, there is not much scheduled for Fall this year.
Festivals are canceled and I'm not sure I want to chance death for a pumpkin.....well, maybe not!
But I will decorate profusely.
And I certainly will enjoy cooler weather when it arrives.
And I will whip up Fall treats for all of my friends. I am proving them with 4th of July party food which will be dropped off on their porches. And they sure are excited to receive it. Anything to break up the monotony.
I haven't broken the news to them yet that Thanksgiving probably won't be happening. Thirty people elbow to elbow might never happen again in my lifetime, certainly not this year.
So, I will spend evenings watching all of my favorite Fall movies.
And hoping a vaccine is discovered sooner rather than later.
And hoping that people finally wake up to what this virus is all about. It's NOT going away.
