Day 8

And so begins week 2 of social isolation.  I sewed the top row together!    Groups of 7 seems to make the most sense.  Each new week will start on a Saturday since that was the first day of our spring break.   I also painted the upstairs hall bathroom today and moved my sewing room into the master bedroom to make room for Anna who is home early from college.  If we had known that everyone would be back so soon, we would not have totally gutted the guest bathroom.  We timed it all to make sure everything would be done before summer vacation.  Now we are just hoping to be able to get all the supplies before everything closes down. If not, we will all be sharing the master bathroom.  Given that nobody has anywhere to go, taking turns should not be a problem.
 There was a sign on the railing to the beach entrance as we went for our morning walk of the dog. It didn't seem to have much effect.  Police came to block off the lot after the crowds had arrived for the day. Maybe tomorrow will be more sparse?    
And while I'm on a roll, here is the wedding that our next door neighbors hosted this evening.

That looks like a great big tent for a handful of wedding attendees!!

the tent does look pretty big - lots of room to social distance perhaps? sounds like you will be busy getting that bathroom done! enjoy your house block

Wow all social events are prohibited by us... no weddings, funerals or gatherings of any sort!
So hard for everyone! We are told to stay home and do not leave your house for any reason other than to secure supplies/food!

The list of "essential" services here is longer than the non-essential services! Included are home repairs and hardware stores so that makes my husband happy....they don't sell toilet paper there so it shouldn't be too crowded!! I like the houses. They are colorful but will be a reminder forever of this time.

Sewing away because it makes me happy.

I’m beginning to understand that each state has its own way of dealing with this crisis, very much dependent on the choice of the individual governors. Because the federal government has been so lax! Here in Kentucky we have been under orders for no meetings of groups of 10 or more for about a week, which applies to private as well as public events.
