Foggy morning at Auckland Domain

It's Sunday today and I woke up very early and took an early bath after which I did the laundry. I was planning to harvest the leafy lettuce and the buttercrunch lettuce so they won't be dry. Besides, the last time my daughter asked me to harvest some lettuce to give to her friend, my neck was aching because the noonday sun was so hot. As I was waiting for the washing machine to be done with the laundry, my older daughter asked me to go with her to fetch her younger sister from night duty at the hospital (7PM to 7AM). She wanted me to come with her so we can have an early morning walk at Auckland Domain before fetching my younger daughter. We left at 6:15 and when we arrived at Auckland Domain, the park was very foggy. We had a fairly good walk before proceeding to the hospital to fetch my other daughter.

Yes, I harvested all the buttercrunch lettuce and 4 leafy lettuce. There was too much so we gave most of the buttercrunch and half of the leafy lettuce to the mother of our daughters' friend. Will be harvesting more of the leafy lettuce this afternoon and share them with two neighbors across the street.
Thanks. I told you that our interim visa is expiring on March 12. I followed up our apllication for a new visa last week but I was told by Immigration that they are giving priority of action to those whose visas are expiring in one or two weeks. Not that we don't want to go home yet but because my daughters are worried of the risks of travel aside from the long quarantine upon arrival.

@sunrisefan Oh, yes. Sorry, I couldn't remember when in March you were supposed to leave by... I agree with your daughters... traveling anywhere, especially by plane is still very dangerous. I hope you and your wife will be as careful as you can when you have to leave.
@DaddyEvil Yes and thanks for the caution. Before, it was me who was anxious to go home but now my wife wants to go home too. Her sister ( a nurse in the US but also stranded back home) had an accidental fall and her shoulder had to be operated today. Her brother also had a mild stroke last monthvso there's only the other brother to do the errand of marketing for their 95 year old mother who is beginning to be forgetful and has a 24-hour caregiver.
