ScrapHappy Saturday - Orange Explosion

I'm still waiting to get into a normal routine again with school. Cases are way down, which is great, then the governor, who has already doubled down on face masks, has now gone after quarantines and appointed a new surgeon general who would like us to eat right and exercise rather than relying on vaccines so much. It isn't easy to live in Florida right now.

It was spirit week though, which was so much fun for the kids.  They dress up as something different each day.  Pajama day is always a favorite.  They cancelled the homecoming dance, but we were still able to hold our powder puff football game of senior versus junior girls.  The boys do a dance at half time which is always quite scandalous.     
Anna came home for the weekend again to get the car fixed. I am sure that they have auto repair shops in Sarasota, but it is still nice to be able to see her.  Kurt's brother is in Orlando on business for the week so he will drop by tomorrow for lunch.  He hasn't been to visit since we moved into the new place.

Glad the kids were able to have some parts of their homecoming week! I'm also glad for you that cases are down, in spite of your governor. Wishing you a relaxing weekend!

Glad to hear the upper classmen got a chance to have some Homecoming fun, Angela!! Here's hoping you will enjoy your visitors this weekend. Will there be any time for ORANGE sewing???

cases are finally slowing here too but we still have way too many. I find it so odd that the top medical advisor would promote exercise and eating right as a way to get rid of a virus - yes that will make you healthier but it doesn't prevent virus!! some people are just so odd. I hope more get the vaccine which will help

Your governor and mine - both idiots with no concern except their own political ambitions. Could we ship them both to Mars?

One of the things I miss the most about teaching in a high school is Homecoming week with all the crazy dress up days. Plus it seems like every organization at school did at least one "hat day" as fund raisers during the year. I had a whole collection of fun hats to wear.

I am sorry about your "governor". Idaho's is nearly his equal. It sucks to be responsible vaccinated/masked adults while hospitals are overrun with the unvaccinated. Meanwhile, responsible people with medical emergencies lay on waiting room floors for 4-16 hours awaiting a bed to be seen.

I'm glad you're able to be out watching the kiddos enjoy life!!!!

Hope you enjoy the visiting this weekend with the family. Deep breaths.... I think that is all we can do at this point.

Angie said...

Who would've ever thought a virus would become so politicized?! I just hope this downward trend continues and another new variant doesn't pop up that is resistant to vaccines. Hang in there!!

Jenny said...

It must be horrible to live in a place where people in high places give such advice, sure, eating well and exercise will help your general health, but this virus is a killer! The world is so lucky that the vaccinations have been developed so quickly so why not take advantage of science and keep everyone safe.

I am so sorry to know that politicians insist on talking about subjects they have no knowledge for, they are negationist and are going against the science.
A sad and shameful example for us was the opening speech for the UN meeting this week.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend. Take care.

It's good to hear that cases are down, we are still waiting, as cases continue to grow here in Alberta, we too are plagued by poor choices by politicians. Your spirits do sound a bit better, it's sure been a roller-coaster ride. I enjoyed Orange September and look forward to next months colour.

Spirit Week was always such a fun time for my kids too. Cheers to outdoor activities that don't require masks! I remember we were told by politicians that once vaccinated we'd no longer need a mask. Sick of the politics here too. My severely obese governor shipped his family to FL at the start about 18 months ago. Now there's something to be said for that too!

Kate said...

Oklahoma is pretty much in the same place Florida is regarding masks and vaccinations. We've had several parents out initially with a kid that has Covid and then they caught it and were out for that. It's been a point of stress for all the parents at work. At least the kids get to do some of the traditional events. Stay safe and well.

Spirit week is always great fun. Glad cases are on the decline. Even if temporarily. Our county cases are on the rise here, also. WE are one of the most unvaccinated states in the US!

Bonnie said...

Orange has been a fun month for me. Looks like the girls had fun with powder puff football. Seems to me I did that in high school some 50+ years ago. Have a good week.
