Focusing on Staying well

No post yesterday as it was all hands on deck for the last day before complete lock down in NZ. We are confined to our homes and that will bring its own problems for many having to stay in confined quarters. We had a 40 foot import container of water features arrive and that had to be unloaded - all non essential businesses are closed so Kim won't be able to sell or send out custom orders till after the State of Emergency is lifted. On top of that it was the last day to insure Grandma had food, medication and batteries for her hearing aid. I tried to get her to come and stay with us but at 95 she is so stubborn and maybe she is better off in her own isolated bubble. When I finally got home I put a round of apple chips in the dehydrator. I had purchased cheap apples and a friend had dropped me off pears so they too will be processed. We are well stocked but groceries can still be accessed as essential services. So now it is sit tight and maybe get to do some projects that have been on hold for a while or try something entirely new. " Made by Barb" has put up an amazing post of making a fitted face mask and I think that will be my first project after I get through my daily chores today. It uses hepa filters (from a new vacuum cleaner bag and pretty fabrics. She is one amazing lady with her creativity.
