It has been awhile since I blogged! (I think I start every blog with those words anymore.)
I was in an eating/exercise funk before COVID-19 and I'm actually doing a little better now. Spring and more outdoor time always help. Our immediate family is doing a weight-loss challenge. I'm sure I won't win but it's motivating to have to tell someone else what you weigh!
As far as changes due to the pandemic, we never did eat out much so that hasn't been a big change for us, and living in the country means our day-to-day is full of projects and things to do this time of year. DH is back at work and I'm still working partially from home, which I love! We can garden, and walk for miles and do all sorts of things outdoors, and so far there have been NO cases of the virus in our county. I'm very thankful.
We are missing our kids, especially our son and DIL. She is a hospital RN and works with COVID-19 patients so we are concerned for them. We haven't seen them since Christmas and probably won't for the foreseeable future.
My online church services have been going well, now that we've worked out most of the kinks.If anyone is looking for an online service, you can find ours at stpaulbluehill.b
I feel most sorry for the nursing home residents and other shut-ins, especially those who aren't tech-savvy. I make a lot of phone calls, and do weekly prayer/devotion time calls with quite a few nursing home residents. I always feel so blessed after talking with these wise and seasoned elders.
I pray that we will emerge from this time stronger and will have learned to appreciate what's really important in life.
