Positive Effects of Shelter In Place

Positive Effects of Shelter In Place

I wasn’t able to blog yesterday because I got involved in a yard project. I wanted to expand my patio by a few feet so that I could move the table and chairs into a corner and make more room for a glider for Moli and I to sit on during  these gorgeous spring afternoons and evenings.

Something else to protect us from Coronavirus?

Today I’m going to talk about coconut oil. I had a stye in my eye and the only thing that worked to get rid of it was putting a few drops of coconut oil on it each night. No matter what else I tried, nothing was working. But the coconut oil did.

Eventful Weekend

Made it through another weekend! My hot water heater went out Friday night. Navigating the process of figuring out whether it was really dead or just broken while still maintaining social distancing was a challenge. My handyman is also a plumber which definitely made it a little easier except that he doesn’t have a truck. Turns out the hot water heater was dead. May it rest in peace. So that meant we also had to find someone with a truck which we were able to do. In addition to which it turns out that I had a nest of squirrels, apparently for years, in one of the vents in the furnace room.There were three live squirrels that we finally got out and two dead squirrels. Eww!

How COVID 19 Infects Us and 
What It Does Once We Are Infected

By Dr. J. Renae Norton

Lets talk about how COVID 19 actually gets into the human body, and what it does but before we do that lets take a minute to explain the difference between a virus and a bacterial infection.  I think people are really confused about this, which makes it even harder to understand how this virus is spreading.  I always say knowledge is power, so let’s power up!
