2nd Dose!

With yesterday’s administration of a 2nd vaccine shot it’s safe to say we’re doing our part in the recovery. Still living in a state of heightened quarantine due to ongoing caregiver duties but it’s all worth it.

Good to see some restrictions being cautiously lifted provided everyone conducts themselves in a responsible manner. Only time will tell.

Until news arrives to do otherwise the masks stay in place and basic distancing guidelines are the rule of the day. Such a minor inconvenience considering all the good it will do for so many in the long run.

Making Due

Pandemic, shortage of Art Supplies and the lunacy of those around us who question if it’s all real; it’s enough to make any of us turn to blogging as a form of therapy.

I’m of the school where you simply make due with whatever is on hand. It may not be much and require compromise but at least it keeps everything moving forward.

Done!

I have hereby had my first of two vaccine shots. The whole appointment was uneventful and rather dull but at least it was on-time.

Still have to follow guidelines until everyone is far enough out of the pandemic woods but at least it’s a step forward. Only been 2 hours since the injection so now’s the time to see if there’s any discomfort or fatigue. Time will tell.

Personally I’m looking forward to participating in live gallery shows with an attending public once again!

A little something to symbolize our coming freedom!

Vaccine Time Approaches…

Just passing time as the last hours count down to the first vaccination shot. For some reason I was a little apprehensive last night; like a child who has to go for their very first shot at the doctor’s office. Now I’m more bored than anything else as there’s very little to do now and best not schedule anything major afterwards.

Progress!

Not at all art related but tomorrow I’ll be receiving the first of two vaccination shots. Sure, precautions are still going to be followed to the letter but I’m not going to complain about progress.

Out of respect for all here I pledge to try not to cry during the actual injection. At least I’ll try.

Near Miss

Some may recall from some time ago when there was the mention of my volunteer work helping care for an older couple. Setting aside our own extreme quarantine measures to keep them health there hasn’t been much of a hardship at all.

Then there was yesterday when a serious medical episode occurred and an ambulance had to be summoned. Fortunately everyone functioned like a finely tuned machine and everything, including the trip to the hospital, went without a hitch.

I can proudly say that as of this hour everyone is doing well and still COVID-19 free. It’s a tribute to common sense and rational efficient action.

Now comes my confession: while medical personnel were in the house providing much needed care I stayed well out of their way. For a minute during this time I “may” have pulled out my iPhone and snapped a photo or two of the equipment left in the open by the front door. Perhaps I needed a temporary break from the stress of the situation or likely sometimes I have the attention span of a toddler.

Provided here is the final result after several bouts through Photoshop.
