I have always had jobs that I had to leave the house. You know, get showered, brush your teeth, comb your hair, stand in front of your clothes for 10 mins trying to decided what to wear and 4 outfits later, you finally found something.
Then you finally make your way to the kitchen to make your lunch and grab yourself some breakfast before you walk out of the door. So, in this case, I baked a Challah the night before, cut a few slices and tossed them into the toaster. When you hear that wonderful sound "POP" or whatever, you know you need to hurry up and get that butter on those slices to melt nicely on them. And you know it.
Thank you to friends, in ensuring that my Germany jam is stocked in the house. You might be thinking why not the jam here in the US. Well, Germany uses waaaaayyyyy fewer sugars and chemicals in their products. Not to mention, this is what I grew up with and learned to love. Oh and to top it off, it makes me feel like I am in "meine Heimat", Germany where I am from. Even I get homesick a bit and it is always nice when a surprise package arrives at the door. Shes me someone out there must really like or just plain and simple loves me.
Who would have thought with this dang coronavirus aka COVID-19 that I would have to be 6-feet apart and wearing a mask? So, to assist with keeping us all safe we were authorized to telework certain days. Yep, telework a few days and the other days I go to the office. The days I am in the office, we have to answer a few questions and cannot enter the clinic unless our temperature is normal. SAY WHAT??? Yep, we get our temperature taken. Not just to keep ourselves safe, but to ensure we are not helping spread this deadly virus. Where was I now? Oh, as you can see when I telework, my little makeshift office is set up in my kitchen. It is bright and airy and one cannot beat the view. I am able to do the same things I do at work here at the house. However, I do miss being around people.
Who knows where we go from here that we are all on "Stay At home Safe", 6-feet apart, no more than 10 people in a room, but still 6-feet apart. However, we stay to ourselves that we do not know who has it and we do not need COVID-19 standing at our door. So no one knows when life will go back to normal, even though this has shown me that normal might not be suitable for us in the first place.
Please, be safe out there, stay at home and only go out if necessary. Too many have lost their lives for us to be ignorant and not follow the simple rules.
