Flipping The Calendar to a New Month....June
June 1, 2020 10:40am CST
Happy Monday and the 1st day of June! We're greeted by sunshine and a beautiful day for the start of a brand new month. I know we've all been saying how fast time is flying by and even with being quarantined during the pandemic time seemed to fly by just as fast. My morning was hijacked by my aunts phone call. She wanted to tell me about a good book she just read. Of course we got off on a bunch of other topics including how nice it will be when family can visit again. My aunt and uncle live in Massachusetts, have four grown and married children with 14 grandchildren. Their house is usually hopping with activity but with quarantine they haven't seen their family except from a distance. We're all missing those hugs and human contact. Slowly life is getting back to the "new" normal. My daughter is supposed to go back into the office next week. This week she'll still be working from home but I've become so used to her being here that it's going to be weird when she goes back. I'm busy making a grocery list for the next delivery but our last delivery has lasted quite longer than I thought it would. That's good news especially for my wallet. Now I'm going to see what's going on here, chat for awhile and then do the chores I've been putting off. Enjoy your day my friends and hope you can find something to smile about

The new normal. We got out of lockdown a little bit on Friday. Police Scotland made over 1000 arrests at the weekend for people disregarding social distancing rules. Not a good way to end May. Lets hope my fellow Scots start behaving a bit more responsibly. The sun is shining, plenty to smile about. Think I quite like the lockdown and the social distancing

I'm sure you'll love it when families can get together again. I'm sure it will feel weird when your daughter goes back to work. That is great news for your wallet. My smile is on. I went to the pool this morning.

Yes, this virus had disrupted our lives! I haven't seen my aunt except once, and only from a distance. I'm hoping your daughter's boss has implemented safety stuff within the office. Glad that the delivery lasted awhile, I've yet to do one of those home delivery types, maybe eventually, but most likely for stores that I can't get to easily (I wonder if instacart delivers for Aldi's?)

@Marilynda1225 The stay at home order has been lifted by our governor as of this afternoon. I might go back next week. Waiting to hear from my bosses. I've enjoyed being home but wish it was under better and different circumstances. I don't want to go back even though I like my job. Got used to being home more I guess.
We are also slowly switching to the "new" normal. Today it was a religious holiday, a nice quiet Monday to start the month of June. The border with Italy is still closed and it will not be opened until July 6th, still a long waiting before I can shop there again.
