We’ve been doing a lot of house cleaning and hand washing/sanitizing
Only going in stores when absolutely necessary.
Tweaking the website now and then
Got our raised bed gardens ready and been doing a lot of yard work.
Going for drives every few days for a change of scenery.
Getting carry out at a select few restaurants that we really trust.
Doing more bible studies and praying that this will end soon!
And counting down the days to November.

2 of my ED docs out due to “high risk” status (1 pregnant the other 80 years old). I’m mostly just working my butt off and waiting for the Pandemic that hasn’t hit our area yet. A dozen or so cases locally but nothing serious at my hospital.

I quarantined in NJ with my nieces family. She and I headed out 3-4 days a week to do some dirt digging. Found some silver and some fun relics that I don’t get to detect very often. Now I”m back in FL and alone! Detecting the beach 5-6 days a week and getting some gold. Finished 2 quilting projects that had been ongoing for over 2 years! Also doing some organizing around the house. A few visits with friend doing “dinner on the driveway”. lol Missing people!!!

A lot of bike rides, campfires, and barbecues with my wife and daughter.
Work has slowed down some but honestly not much, I am blessed in that regard. I’ve found some extra time to work on my latest project also, another antique military truck. And of course, a little father daughter time.

Thankfully I have been able to work. With construction deemed essential here in NC there has been plenty to do. We have been rolling with all the changes from church services via livestream to standing at a distance in a front yard to check on or visit with friends and family. Thankful too that my family and I have remained healthy during all this. Praying that you guys stay safe and stay well.

Going coin shooting a little most days , with the last coins I cashed in I’m now over $2000.00 dollars a lot of holes huh.

Nancy and I were in Kauai when the Canadian government declared the pandemic. Then they told all Canadians that were travelling outside the country to get home as fast as possible as they were considering closing the borders. Being non believers in border closings, we only paid it a little attention. Then Kauai closed all the restaurants to sit down dining. Only “TO GO” meals were available. They then added a “stay in place” rule and closed all beaches and parks. Finally, the Mayor of Kauai issued a notice in the newspaper telling all tourists that Kauai was on “vacation”, no more tourists should come to the island and those already there should go home.
So, ten days early we called the condo rental people to tell them that we were leaving to go home because of the pandemic. They promised us a full refund for the days we didn’t use, made flight arrangements and headed home. At the border, the Canadian Customs agent told us to go straight home and self isolate there for 14 days. What a fun 14 days that was. No close contact with the son, daughter-in-law and 3 yr old grandson, no grocery shopping. And to make matters worse, I find out that DIV has been postponed til the fall. Oh, and did I tell you, my daughter-in-law was expecting to deliver a baby girl in early May.
Last Friday after a nervous wait, Cora Mae Thompson made her appearance weighing in at 9 lbs 3 oz. The wait was worth every minute and every day. We even got to see her and hold her for the first time last Sunday. And that’s what we did so far during the pandemic.

Well, I am still working a lot ( Not from home ) Nothing has changed for us except a lot of cleaning at work. Trying to be careful not to get too close to anybody. I am ready for November.

Much the same here, yard work, cleaning house, garden work and of course some metal detecting .
And now I know more back roads to come back from Culpeper than I ever knew
But mostly bring safe and praying for this to end
Everyone be safe and see you guys in the fall

Well, I’ve stained our house, done what gardening I can, done some turkey hunting. Overall, haven’t been away from home much at all. At the present moment I’m smoking 12 lbs. of bacon! Supposed to return to work on May 12th. But that could change. Very blessed to be off work since March 15th. With full pay! Going back to work has never sounded so good…👍

Hi Rose, much the same here. Finally have the time to purge the house, it’s been needed!
With all the rain the grass gets cut every other day, and the weeds are endless.
We too take a drive on occasion to get to see anything else. Just finished up my first week
back to work unfortunately. After five weeks off that was tough to do and uncomfortable at best.
The site is awesome. Stay safe, see everyone in November hopefully.
