Looking for answers to life's questions

It’s in my front window this year but doesn’t photograph as well there.

I missed St. Patrick’s Day and many others. This month was first about planning for my family to come visit. I haven’t seen my youngest brother more than 10 years at least. My son was coming to see his uncle and cousin with her family here since it’s been even longer for him. I saw my niece and grandniece a couple of years ago when they came for a short visit.  All trips have been canceled.

My last visit to our grocery store!

Then I had four days of excruciating pain from a handful of cashews. The doctor mentioned in passing I had diverticulitis. I’d never experienced any discomfort from it so I just ignored it. I won’t make that mistake again. No more nice crunchy nuts for me.

I have been so distracted that I even missed a friend’s birthday and had to send a belated card to him. When I noticed I was starting to slip off the crazy edge, I started looking for ways to ground myself. Since all my sewing groups have been canceled, (we are all at risk aged) I sat myself at my machine to work on starting and finishing a few projects.

The start of a scrappy charity quilt and a learning project

Then I started catching up on my blog reading and looking for funny and inspirational. I found funny here. Barb Taub always hits my funny bone.

Inspirational I found here. Pam Grout blogs on Word Press too and she always brings my monkey mind back to center with so much wonderful humor as well.

Something so droll to read turned flat funny.

I’m no good at cloistering. As an extroverted introvert, I need people as much as I need quality alone time. People are how I know I’m still connected here.

Donkeys all done

My daughter is working from home for the next month. She is determined to keep me well and at home. She is an introverted introvert. Another words, a hermit. She’s happy to work in her room and only come out for meals. I can sometimes hear her on the phone helping co-workers with the problems they are encountering since they have all been switched to a whole new computer system. Like her brother, she is amazing at virtual tech support. My son fixed my embroidery program issues by connecting to my computer from his earlier this week. That saved me more money than I cared to admit. I tell him to send me a virtual bill and he laughs.

Practicing making wonky stars

I, like so many of you are struggling with this new situation. The physical costs to life are enormous. Then there is the financial aspect where so many have been laid off jobs as so many businesses have been forced to shutter. Our world is connected as a whole whether you want to accept that thought or not. What affects one, affects the whole somewhere down the line. I know there is a silver lining in here somewhere. Jennie found one that she shared. I love this wonderful person and what she does. Pop over and have yourself a little smile.

What are you doing to cope with the craziness and the isolation?

“Control your own mind. Or somebody else will.~ Tony Robbins

Stay well and connected virtually.

From my heart to yours,

    • Thanks for stopping by my occasional blog, Val. I have most of Pam Grouts books and love them all. She breaks it down in a way that the average person can understand. I’ve been studying the Course a good 10 years and have always struggles somewhat with how to apply it. Even my daughter is enjoying this version of it. We will be sunny through Tues then back to showers but I walk anyway. Wind is the only thing that slows me down. Our yoga studio had to close too. ;( Stay well also, Val.

  2. I’m an introvert also, so this is just more of the same for me. The only thing different is that I stay in even more (if that’s possible). As for me, I’ve dug out my paints and canvases and am going to start painting again. I figure it’s a perfect time. No interruptions. ha! I’ve tried writing again but no can do yet…..YET…..It’s still in me, it just doesn’t want to come out in any way just yet. So I wait and do other creative things. Stay safe my friend. ❤

    • You are so wise, my friend. Go at the writing from another direction. That’s how quilting and sewing help me get back to writing. You are like my daughter and son. They can be social but it’s not natural to them. My daughter often comes home and after saying a few words will tell me she is ‘peopled out’ and goes to her room. I rarely see here even though we share this house now 24/7. 😉 You keep well too. Would love for you to post a painting or two when you get them done. My daughter is going to try to do a small water color tonight. After I make her walk to the mailbox with me. 😉

  8. I’m already pretty isolated, so I just need to take it a small step forward. How do I deal with it? Blogging, sewing and holding long one-sided conversations with my dog, when I’m not doing FaceTime with family or on the phone to the Husband. Oh, and I do love to cook, so I greatly fear the cookie and cake quotient in our diet is going to increase somewhat. Perhaps I should call it hibernation instead of isolation. Down Under we are coming into winter, so it would be appropriate…

    • I think I said that to Pauline in NZ that she is going into hibernation as much as self isolating. Though, like you, she tends to spend a great deal of time alone already as do many single women my age. Pauline has her painting and card making like we have our quilting etc. I don’t have many people to connect with and really miss having a dog for company. They listen so well and never judge you. Blogging has been my life saver too. I hope you have a gentle winter but with the right amount of rain. Lets hope this passes quickly.

  9. Hello Marlene! I find myself not working right now. We are closed for at least 10 days, so I’m finding myself figuring out what to do next.

    Yesterday, I spent a good part of the day phoning people, you know, to make sure they were ok. I think it did more for me than for them – staying connected when we’re supposed to isolate.

    Today, is gorgeous here, with very little snow left. So, it was a perfect opportunity to be outside in my yard. Funny how the weeds grow, despite being in the snow; just like the crocus and grape hyacinths.

    We will see what tomorrow brings. I’m choosing to find good, to be kind and to do a lot of cooking and caring. Take care my friend!

  10. I am sorry to hear the nuts didn’t agree with you. Good idea to stay away from them, but how disappointing to miss the family reunion. We just had to cancel a 90th party in the family….I love the contrast of the Spring flowers against the blue house walls! So pretty. Your supermarket shelves are way emptier than mine. Concerning. Well, except our toilet paper and sanitizer aisles look exactly like that!
    The sewing is beautiful, as always. It is great that you have that to occupy your mind.
    I think your daughter is correct to keep you home – it is a little risky out there atm.
    And so our world connection is the tenuous thread that keep us from complete isolation. And I thank goodness for it. Even though I am still required to work. Yoga is my salvation in that I am hoping through it, I can maintain my immunity. I have so many accumulated hobbies to work through, so am not worries at all about being confined. But I do miss all the lovely social events that were planned. ( I must also be an extroverted introvert). Hugs, from down under. Keep sewing.

I feel for your daughter but she will learn a great deal from this. Resilience for one. My kids have had a fairly smooth ride so far. Older generations had other tough things to deal with. This is a silent and invisible enemy we are fighting this time. I’m sure you are an extroverted introvert. I think that’s part of why we click. Hugs from the lovely PNW.

What are you doing for fun? I know the walks I take are vital to my mental health right now too. Not many walk here because of the steep hills. I have a hard time with them but keep plugging along. We fortunately don’t have thunderstorms. 😉 Just a lot of rain. Thanks for stopping by. I’m going to be catching up on my reading too in the next weeks. There is the silver lining.

  13. I love your positive attitude and seeing your New Creations. Yes, we live in a new world now and it is changing by the minute. It was hard for me to come to terms with the fact that I fell into the at-risk age bracket. You, however, face additional challenges with your health issues and I am so glad to know your daughter is looking out for you. I have been looming and making sock hats. Normally this would not be the time of year for that but we have had so much rainy weather that it is perfect while I sit and listen to an audiobook or watch a movie on Netflix. It is helping to keep my sanity for sure! My daughter asked if we were all going to get fat as a result of this crisis and I told her probably as we are all stress eating and stocking up on many unhealthy supplies or whatever is available. I have also turned to baking and just popped a carrot loaf out of the oven. It’s carrots so does that mean it’s a more healthy option? I insist this must be true! I did reduce the sugar amount. Glad to see your posts. I was gone for a while so just catching up now.

I have one of my son’s and it’s not very attractive. My daughter bought me one but it’s too warm and small. I must have a fat head. I’m being very careful but not obsessively. My walks help so much and I too listen to audible when sewing. Apparently, my lungs have been holding their own with no change. That was excellent news and the trick is to not let anything stress me. Not even this. I’m going with the flow and know everything will be ok. The Piano Guys have a great song about it. It’s on my walking playlist. 😉 Keep taking care of yourself. Age doesn’t make us vulnerable. Attitude does.

I was at the grocery very early this morning where presumably the first hour was for seniors. Nope, everyone was there. Most have no glimmer that anything unusual is going on. That worries me a bit. The TP aisles were still empty and they wanted $7 a roll for paper towel. So I’m making my own. Sewing machine will be humming along next week. It will be interesting. Stay well and happy.

I squeeze in the walk between showers some days. 😉 Kate sent me a free pattern for a mask that I’m going to try with flannel scraps. I have a few. 😉 Today I made paper towels and hankies out of some CHEAP white toweling I bought more than 10 years ago. I knew it would come in handy. $7 a roll for paper towels is ridiculous. You have the time now to do those projects but should not be on your feet more than necessary. Isn’t that the way it works. When I get sick, I have time to do things but no ability to concentrate or stamina for the work. Glad you are doing better too.

I know for a fact that I will NEVER run out of projects. 😉 I do run out of steam. 😉 My son got the computer to recognize the hasp that runs the design program for embroidery. It’s a tech thing, not mechanical. It’s a very expensive for me program and without the computer understanding the hasp ( little USB kind of thing) it wouldn’t do it’s work. It couldn’t be replaced without buying a whole new program. I can’t spend for that these days. He can do it from Arizona while I’m in Oregon. So amazing to me what you can do with technology. I’m a little weary of this stay at home stuff but we had a lovely hail storm to watch. TV has almost nothing on it for me. ;( I hope you and your mom are managing well together. Keep well.

        It truly is amazing that your son could repair that program problem from afar! I wish I was better at it myself, but I think I’m a bit old-fashioned like that, especially when it comes to the arts too. Many people I know only work from their computers, using all kinds of programs to draw their illustrations and such right on the screen, whereas I like to do it the old way with paints, brush and paper. 😉
        TV is awful here too, way too much reality TV stuff which I don’t like, no good series or films… it’s a good thing I went to the library shortly before the lockdown and borrowed a couple of DVDs. 😉
        My mum and I are doing fine, and I hope you and your daughter do too. We keep indoors most of the days, only sometimes going to the supermarkets to get fresh produce, like veggies, fruits and milk (wouldn’t want to die of scurvy 😉 ). I’ve been learning a bit about photo editing this week, which might be useful for future projects. As you said – we’ll never run out of projects. 😉 Take care! Hugs!

  25. Marlene, since you recognize the best kinds of energy in the world, I’m wondering if you have come across those people whose reaction to the pandemic is hope and joy? I’ve recognized four so far, in my life, that are truly hopeful and inspired and pleased that this situation is the thing that’s finally going to pull all of humanity together and show us how we are all one. They are earnestly sad about the hardships, but their perspective is that despite the pain it’s the kind of thing to ultimately help humanity get in touch with their inner tolerance and goodness. I’ve heard such love and optimism and satisfaction from them. To be honest, I don’t know how they do it, but I do love stumbling across these friends in my life. I didn’t know this kind of power was inside them, and I wish for more of them.

    My strategy is to put my head down and focus on today instead of the scary unknowable future. I tell myself it is temporary, and I’ve chosen a timeline that makes sense just to me and doesn’t have to be justified to anyone else, and I’ve told myself I can go that long. If that date arrives and we’re still quarantined, I’ll simply recalculate and do it again. I can do temporary. I’ve tried to pay close attention in the last three weeks, to anytime my brain says, “Ugh! I have GOT to get to that one of these days.” And then boom, stop, and do it. Usually this is housecleaning stuff that’s a pain: window washing inside and out, getting on a stool to clear cobwebs, pulling apart the hanging globes in the kitchen and washing the glass, then putting them all back together again.

    Your donkey quilt turned out darling and the story behind it is terribly sad. I’m glad you are turning the story around. Your wonky star is so pretty and I’m impressed that you’re learning this new skill. I love those blues. For St. Patrick’s Day I was supposed to be in the Shamrock Run in Portland, and clearly that was canceled. So I ended up not celebrating at all, except for calling Tara, which is always nice. 🙂

    • Many of us are not bothered by the isolation and know there is a silver lining in everything. Change is often painful. I’m hoping we are changing in the direction of kindness and caring as you have hoped. I do not find many whose energy is high enough to spend a lot of time with them. Most people leave me drained, some even after a phone call.
      I am ‘getting’ to the things that have been waiting for a long time. Not leaving the house allows the flow to happen. This has to be harder for you since you are so isolated in every way. I at least have my daughter happily ensconced in her room with her laptop and phones. 😉 I’ve never seen her happier. She wants this permanently now. 🙂
      I’m not cleaning as much these days. Too many more important things to get done. I’m thinking by the end of April, this will turn around. I am concerned about how many are going to be left in financial ruin by it though. The DIL is still running on a skeleton crew with almost no kids since they closed all schools. Hang in there. Before you know it, you will be planning your next big adventure.
