Update Day #10

So here we are, on Day 10 of staying at home, and self isolating (eh, with my partner — who is now working from home for the foreseeable future), and we’ve done all the following:

  • Cleaned the entire apartment
  • Washed and dried five (5) loads of laundry
  • Cleaned out 3 draws of old clothes for charity
  • Inventoried the larder
  • Stripped and changed the bedding
  • Partner cleaned the stove
  • Watered all the plants

No wonder I feel exhausted already, I’ve done nearly 5k steps and it’s only 2:30. But hey, my homemade latte tastes great. Thanks Nespresso, I love our machine and our milk foamer. Who needs Tim Hortons or Starbucks, we have our own coffee corner. But will have to maybe ration our pods for a while, as we heard on the Midday Bulletin from the provincial government that all Malls are close as of midnight, tonight. As some people were not respecting the stay at home unless necessary.

Supermarkets and pharmacies are still open for business, but they’re starting to set hours for different age groups, so that the elderly and those most vulnerable can get food!

That said, most people, a good 90% are following what’s been asked of us, and because of that, our numbers, in province, are still low, at this stage, compared to else where across the planet. However, the government is warning that we could see a spike in numbers now most people from abroad are coming home. I say give it 7 to 14 days from the last person getting back, and we’ll see certain spikes.

I just hope we’re all doing enough, in the meantime, to help flatten that curve and keep our emergency workers, doctors and nurses, all safe as well.

We can hope that the good weather that’s arrived doesn’t make people restless or worse, stupid.

Stay safe out there, people. And please, stay home where at all possible.

    Glad to hear the quarantine is going fairly well so far. Ours growing cases seems to have stalled over the weekend and I hope it stays that way. My hope is the people still working, limit their activities to work and shopping only. The temptation to do more is difficult to avoid when you are already out.

    Anyway thanks for keeping us updated. I hope some of your days are restful this week lol.

      We are, like most, hanging in there and doing our best. It’s all we can do at this moment in time. But yes, the temptation is getting harder, because the good weather is arriving across Canada, and many are taking to going outside, and not keeping their distance. We saw that on the news, this morning, people in Vancouver this weekend strolling in the parks and down by the river like they hadn’t a care in the world.

      Sigh! It will come back and bite them, but what can we do?

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting, and yes, you too. Take care.

        I hate hearing that. I have nothing against people going out but they should definitely be giving each other space. Unfortunately it comes back to bite us all, just hoping enough people took this seriously to slow it down!

          Well, here at least the government is taking the lead, they announced they are fining those who are not keeping their distance and jeopardising others.

            That’s good news! A woman got charged with “terroristic threats” when she coughed on produce in a grocery store in PA. They had to throw out $30,000 worth of produce. Crazy people all over the world😞
