The world is a crazy place right now.
Online videos show people are fighting over everyday items at big box stores to the extent someone was injured enough to require ambulance transport to a medical facility.
In my area, it’s eerie to see grocery store shelves literally bare. It’s not the usual bread, milk and eggs run we see when a dusting of snow is forecasted. People are frantically buying up whatever they see. Produce, meat, bread, paper products, frozen foods, milk, canned biscuits – all gone. Hubby’s employer has now curtailed all travel, so my road warrior hubby will be at home for a while. This meant a trip to the grocery store last night for milk. We got the last 1/2 gallon of 2% milk and managed to find substitute brands for other items we typically buy for weekend breakfasts. Makes me ever so thankful for my stocked pantry and freezer (Mrs. Schubert’s cinnamon rolls in the freezer section are a good substitute for the Pillsbury canned version).
Local schools are cancelled for the foreseeable future. I’ll be teleworking 3 hours per day to support digital learning initiatives, plus compiling book orders and conducting library database maintenance. Reading new books was on my list, but now that the libraries are closed, I’ll have to borrow/buy ebooks or visit the local bookstore.
What this does mean is that I will have some time to really organize my sewing studio and actually finish some of those UFOs languishing on my work table.
Keep calm and quilt on!
One thought on “Take a deep breath”
It’s amazing how folks are panic-buying! It’s not the freaking apocalypse! I’m grateful for having a stocked pantry and freezer although I don’t usually keep more than a few of any one item so we’ll see how quickly we go thru it all. I’ll be spending lots of time in my sewing room as well. It needs a thorough cleaning and there are more than enough UFO’s to keep me busy.
