Cocooning With Virus in the Neighborhood

Well, that might not be strictly true, but I like the sound of it.
We are "cocooning"... as the English Women's Institues... or W I's decided was a better name than Social Isolation.

I have to add... prayer to that, but...

Our neighbor 3 doors down was diagnosed with Covid-19 virus this week. She and her husband had gone to Seattle... a virus hot spot... earlier in the month and met friends. Then a cold, she thought which put her in hospital with pneumonia. She tested positive for the virus.
She is home recuperating at home, but it brings it very close.
We have been basically cocooning since the first of the month as my husband's Parkinson's disease and age as well as history of respiratory issues make high a high risk. 
Both his GP and neurologist contacted us and said stay in!

Right now, we are very conscious of the blessings we have, and are... indeed... grateful for the small things.

I found this list of things to do when cocooning on Pinterest, and thought it might inspire someone, or remind someone of things to do if you are bored... I have been working on cleaning, working on the business, enjoying more reading time, chats with my husband and cross stitch...
how about you?

  1. Yes - no going out! Please stay safe inside. This is a great time to learn new things. Read books, bake a dessert, etc!


Thanks for visiting and we love to hear from you! We read every comment. If my husband's health permits, I love to visit andreply. Have a wonderful day and a cuppa tea always at hand! :)
