Over the weekend we transplanted pumpkins and cucumbers. Also, got our basil and carrots in the ground. We didn’t get the usual “final blizzard” this May.
Saturday night a wildlife camera caught a BIG mountain lion in our alley and there was a moose in the local cemetery yesterday. The moose was sitting the shade munching all afternoon.
Picture is from a friend – I have a policy to NEVER, EVER, EVER walk towards a moose.
Bella has a desk!
We’ve had the table for 12 years => The Land of Nod. We have three sets of legs so can change depending on what we need.
Up on the wall you can see a photo progression of Monica’s third pregnancy. We have one for each of our babies.
Monica was outstanding at being pregnant!
Here is a summary of how Eagle County used their lockdown: widespread antibody testing (11.5% infection rate, 55,000 county population), build surge capacity in their hospital, and secure PPE to get through a surge.
I noticed a very, very low death and hospitalization rate vs what we’d been told to expect. Curious what antibody test/protocol they used (not that I’m qualified to understand!)
Our governor was on Fox News Sunday and the interview was picked up by Politico.
By the time I read the article I was interpreting it far down the chain.
He must have done a good job getting his points across. The main things I noticed: he’s going to work with “the President we have” to benefit the people of Colorado; he wants schools to open; and there’s no excuse for missing academic targets.
Good messaging, continued solid leadership and an example of a politician focused on results.
Many of my friends ignoring the guidelines to recreate near home => using forced downtime from work to ramp up spring training in the hills.
Locally, most people skipping masks.
Taught my kids about masks:
- Wear the whole time => once on, once off
- Don’t touch
- Do not move up/down as you move in/out of people
JC Penney – highly leveraged retailer went under on Friday
This morning’s news dominated by a vaccine moving to Phase Three trials. We’re told this is good news.
Overall, I’m very, very wary of “things I want to believe..”
- I’m safe
- The virus doesn’t infect kids
- The vaccine will arrive in the fall
- I can’t get infected outside
I am prone to error because I deeply want to believe…
