Day 3

Today's house today has a jaunty tropical feel, but the sky is dark.  It rained today which scared all the crowds away from the beach.  Sydney and I both had a doctor's appointment this morning.  She has a major head cold and I am almost recovered from a very minor flu.  Even a normal illness seems terrifying right now.    
I finished my Tiny Tuesday quilt today!  I tried and failed to prop it on the railing before drafting Ryan to come and hold it for me.  He went into work with Kurt briefly to get a job assignment to let him get an early start on his summer internship. The office is closed, but one or two people are going in at a time on an "as needed" basis.  Ryan seems happy to have a project to work on after he has taken care of his online learning each day.   This was Kurt's first day of working from home.  He had teleconferences in the family room while I hid in the sewing room.  When we manage to get Anna back I'll have to set up a space in the master bedroom.  Hopefully distance learning will have started by then and I'll have work to keep up with.  Still officially spring break right now though, so more time to sew.  
Then we played a rousing game of Catan after dinner.  Apparently Ryan plays it all the time at the comic book store, but this was our first time to try it as a family.  High marks from everyone involved.  It looked like Sydney was well ahead, but I snuck in at the end for the big win!

yes every illness might scare us for awhile or make us nervous - I had a dental cleaning scheduled for the mid week and cancelled it and reschedule for June - hope things will be better by then.
Your family is staying busy that is good. Love your quilt

Your daily houses are fun to see progress! Tiny Tuesday is looking good, too! Glad you have an actual break before you have to figure how to teach in our new normal.

I'm just hoping for a set of Coronacation Mug Rugs....but I think we'll be hearing this at least until early April. Stay calm, a cold is still just a cold, flu just flu. Don't succumb to the panic. Love and prayers....blessings.

So fun to have progress on some of these projects!
