Sunflower Mania!

I have really been enjoying my garden this spring. It's so full of possibilities. But when I think outside of the garden, I feel a little more hesitant.

How will I transition to being a person in the real world once I am fully vaccinated? I'm not sure how I feel about that. I have a date in my head for my first real excursion. And I know where I am going to go -- Gelson's market, of course. I have not been in a food market, or any market for that matter since March 14 of last year. A whole year!

Will I feel safe? Even if I wear a mask, will I feel safe? When we do small errands, like drop mail in the post box, or deliver something at Fed Ex, or wander outdoors in a nursery -- I notice that I always ask Robert afterwards, "Did that feel safe?" He always says yes, of course, because we would not attempt these things if we did not think they were safe...but I still worry. This is why I think that transitioning to a fully vaccinated self will be difficult.

I think the plan will be to take it slow, acclimate to our new status, stay away from crowded places, always wear a mask, and take a breath.

For now, I am taking lots of deep breaths in my beautiful backyard. And that feels totally safe.

Congratulations on getting your first Covid shot! The world will slowly open up again once you and Robert are fully vaccinated and realize that it's quite safe to go out and to enjoy other normal activities, while still following all the rules. My husband and I hosted a Passover "seder for six" last week with two other fully vaccinated couples. What a joy to gather around our table, no masks, and maybe best of all, to sing together! 😊
