Ooops....or Another Positive

 This is a rather odd place to find a mug of green tea. I was thankful the mug didn't break and that it landed upright. 

Yes, this morning I got my spring of 2022 ice fall out of the way. I seem to biff on the ice at least once every spring.  Nothing worse than a few scraped body parts. 

Michael had been told if he was symptom free on Monday he could be out and about on Tuesday. Unfortunately, the VA Dental clinic isn't following the local or CDC guidelines. LOL They told him he must be symptom free for 5 days before they will let him come in. Poor man. 

I had a scratchy throat on Sunday. I tested negative.  Today, Monday I still had a scratchy throat, was congested and developed a fever, unusual for me.  I decided our rule has kept us well, "If you don't feel good stay home!" Who cares what it is or isn't? Anyway, I began making plans for Tuesday and Wednesday events.  Sure enough I tested positive Monday afternoon. So much for isolation. LOL 

Our four young adults are doing fine - not a sniffle in sight. 

A pause in the schedule can be a good thing. 

It's all good. 

A Perfect Day for a Drive

 A day as beautiful as this, while we are "isolated" at home, begs for driving practice! The girls have goals for when they'd like to have their licenses. We live in a great area for lots of on-road, low-traffic practice.   There may have been a few comments about "controlled turns".....

Stacia's sense of direction resulted in lots of backing up practice!  That little dead-end sign should be noted. LOL 

It is fun to take the girls out. I enjoyed seeing the neighborhood I used to walk in....the snow and ice have vanished enough for longer walks.... I plan to get right on it this week. 

As soon as I can talk them into busier areas, maybe a bit of freeway driving, I won't have to drive again until they are off driving their own car.  We may be able to dig the vibe out by the end of the week.
