It’s nearly 2 months since I started self-isolating. At this point I am so grateful to so many people. My dear family who is understanding and supportive of my need to stay healthy for starters. My dear friend Mary who encouraged me to start constructing masks when the need for masks for health care workers was so great and who later donated a huge amount of flannel to me for my masks. I’m grateful to the people who have helped me with mask making when the demand was great and also helped me to make hats for the ICU nurses at Legacy Hospital (Joy and Alyssa). Grateful for batik fabric donations as well from a family member of a neighbor.
Yesterday we were able to safely get take out from a favorite Vancouver restaurant La Bottega Peter and Lisa (owners) decided to make masks mandatory for their employees and offer curbside pick up and cashless and signature free transactions. The food was wonderful and the wine capped off a lovely dinner (out/in). I am so grateful for people who recognize the risk of the asymptomatic transfer of this virus and do everything they can to keep those of us at high risk from this virus safe. None of us know if we are in the asymptomatic group or not.
