Hello! Happy Saturday! Grace here.
I hope you’re all safe and well?
I imagine that, like us in NYC, you are staying indoors until further notice. They’ve just announced groups of 10 or less can hang out in NYC, but I’m not so sure I want to rush out. I’m sure many people here and in the UK will find it difficult not to stay indoors on a long weekend, and unfortunately we cannot stop them from doing that. We have zero control of the actions of others. We can only control our own little bubble, and even then… not really!
So instead of getting angry and frustrated at people I’m going to busy myself with safe and healthy things this holiday weekend. Perhaps a puzzle? Or I might have a crack at organizing a few drawers. Maybe cook something. Start a project. The world (or my apartment) is my oyster!
It doesn’t really matter what I do. As long as I’m at home I’m not putting anyone at risk or in danger. And that is something to be proud of. Let’s not forget how strong everyone was for the first month or so, and now we’re into month 3 it’s wavering around the world. And of course restrictions are slowly lifting. I personally am going to sit it out and watch from the window…
Have you ever watched Game of Thrones? If so, think ‘Dothraki disappearing into blackness in battle’.
Nah thanks, I think I’ll stay here in the safety of the castle basement. Oh wait!
And if you haven’t watched it?! WELL WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?! Even my Mum (who will normally leave the living room if things get too violent) was obsessed with GoT. I’m jealous of anyone who hasn’t yet seen it and highly recommend it. I even have a couple of good friends in the show!
Anyway, back to the weekend. My mum always says ‘As long as you keep your side of the street clean!’ and I apply that massively to this pandemic. I’m staying indoors for my close friends that are nurses and are still overwhelmed and at risk on a daily basis. I personally don’t want them to have to go through this again a few weeks from now. Who are you staying inside for?
Now back to our regularly scheduled programming!
I found some really lovely cards this week that I have to share with you! I’m sure they will inspire you as much as they inspire me. Check them out…
Aren’t they fantastic? Each and every one is a frameable work of art. So much time and creativity, skill and thought. Love them!
On that happy note, I’m off to go enjoy the weekend! And I hope you are too!
Lotsa Love, Grace xoxo
