Today, Sunday, reminded me of what Sundays were like many years ago during my childhood.
Except, that is, for the church service that I followed online this morning.
What a good idea live streaming is for those who cannot attend church. I think it should stay around forever as an alternative for elderly folks who are homebound.
After church, my dh and I took a drive -- just like the old-fashioned "Sunday drives" my family used to take when I was a kid.
We didn't have any specific destination in mind - it was more to just drive around for a change of scenery.
Today, in our nearby small towns, there were very few people out and about - just a few couples or single walkers - and all keeping a distance of at least 6 feet from each other.
And the shops were closed up solid.
That was another reminder of the 'old days' when every store was closed on Sundays. Things were usually pretty quiet - and, for me as a young child, it seemed quite boring.
Today food markets and supermarkets were open - with cars in the parking lots.
We have a list of items to purchase the next time we make the trip; but today we did not stop.
We'll do that in a couple of days. We are trying to limit our trips to the supermarket.
Unfortunately, eating has become a pleasant activity - and not necessarily a healthful one.
(This began several weeks ago when I was keeping a daily watch at a hospital bed - and has continued now that I am back home.)
I am changing slowly each day-- working on getting back into healthy habits again.
Once again, SP will be my helper as I focus on 1.eating nutritional food and 2.exercising each day.
It would be nice to emerge from this time of isolation - looking and feeling good about myself.
(Of course, my hair will be another story altogether. LOL
Already it is too long and hanging in my face - and I don't think I will get to see my hairdresser for another several months.)
Let me at least be able to enjoy the warm weather clothing again when that time comes around.
Right now, I am heading off to set up a ticker on my page again - just to get me going back on track.....
edit: Strike that -- I am unable to stick a ticker on my page any more.
Stay well, all my friends!!
