In An Instant
The Walk Home
After completing the evening’s task there’s a time that allows for thought and introspection; the walk home,
While the journey is relatively short it is a valued quiet time where anyone can feel a little more at peace and focus on whatever they choose. Occasionally stopping for a quick photograph is always within reason provided the subject sparks the imagination.
We all could likely make good use of a little more exercise as well so there’s the chance to do so by leaving the car at home in the first place.
So it’s safe to say that, along with everything else, I was able to have some time to myself for a little physical and mental well-being.
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.
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.
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.
