Nasty cold day but I had plenty to do inside and no one walked
past the office or came inside. Getting organized for our trip to
Yankton. Not excited since it will be the coldest day ever for one
of these. Hoping everyone who wants eggs shows up early.
Social distancing should not be a big deal.

It was icy when I left the office but I threw down some ice melt from
the door to the street, scraped my car and left. I spread a little ice
melt on the sidewalk here too. Inside to make fine noodles for our
mini market tomorrow. I know it will be cold but we won't be standing
outside our car. I texted/messaged all of our customers and will see
what happens. I just candled the eggs in the incubator and may have
70 hatch this weekend. The baby pullets arrived Tuesday or Wednesday
so we can put them all together in the barn. Just need to hand the
heat lamps and set up water and feed but that will be Sunday night.

Woke up this morning to a blinding headache and my ankle is giving me fits. It seems a bit better now that I have walked around a bit, but I feel like the Tin Man from the Wizard of Oz. I need to be oiled.

Will have to exercise indoors today as it looks like a sheet of ice outside. All I need to do is go out, fall down and break something. I don't want to go to the clinic or the hospital. That's the last place anyone should go.

Hubby and I spent 2 hours at the farm, first planting a walnut
tree and 4 elderberries. Then we had to lay the weed barrier
and the wind was jerking it around like crazy but we were laying
one long piece of fabric. Finally got that done and the wind
died down. Had our friend come and shoot a cottontail that always
nests in the garden. He got one and missed another. Finally
home to eat supper and the neighbor called to burn down the
brome grass in the asparagus bed. That took another 45 minutes.
I was wearing my moon boots and my right ankle was all out of
sorts when I was done but it is better this morning.

I get my eggs from our vet. I use to get them for $2 a dozen but when I went in last week, they were now $3 per dozen and $4.50 for a dozen and a half.

Went on another hour long walk yesterday. My right ankle is beginning to pain me. I don't know if it's because I have put in about 13 and a quarter miles this week walking, or if it is something else. I will experiment because there is no way I am going into the clinic to see someone about this.

That is the worst-the not knowing when the pandemic will really
hit the area and know that it is over. We can understand it but our
kids will struggle with this and be impacted the rest of their lives.
Education is so important. All we can do is our best and keep trying.
I was able to file our taxes yesterday, not as early as some years
but at least that is done. Our fruit trees arrived yesterday and we
quickly planted the apple trees, one at DS's and two in the orchard.
We will plant our peach trees next week and DD will get her trees
this weekend. We will "pass" them off on Saturday.
The price of eggs has gone up a $1 a dozen. We hope to sell eggs
this weekend but don't know what we should charge. How much
do eggs cost in your store?

Right on! I would have been asking for the numbers to some really good art auctions, and put them on speed dial.

Woke up this morning to NPR talking about how we should take a lesson from countries where the education of children has been interrupted for months (due to war, or natural disaster). They say typically that it takes several years for the kids to make up the missed education. I started to cry, but the story went on to say that when students had continual contact with their teachers they fared much better. I am still someone bothered, but I know that we are doing the best we can in this situation. We haven't seen the worst of it yet here in SD. Can hardly wait til May and June (NOT).

We watched two hours of Antiques Roadshow last night. At the end of the second program a woman had brought in two cubist style paintings that were given to her a number of years ago, either by a relative or a good friend. She never really liked them, because of the colors, but wondered if they were worth anything. She said that probably when she died that her kids would give them to Goodwill. The art guy there told her about the artist and other information about the paintings (they weren't large canvases, which is one of the reasons the woman hadn't given them away). He said the two of them together at auction would probably go for $200,000- $300,000. He asked her if that changed her opinion of them. She was floored at their worth, but still said she didn't like the colors. OMG it takes all kinds. I would have either fainted or wet my pants. My husband looked up from his laptop and said, "Guess I should have paid more attention to Exploring Art in college."

New ways to submit Medicare apps-telephonically and so we
have 2 sessions of training today and 2 on Thursday.
I made an appointment to complete our taxes this afternoon.
I have a few more items to get on the ledger.
Barely walked in the door and hubby wanted to prune the
grapevines and clean out the refrigerator. Took a short break
for supper and then finished the refrigerator in time to watch
The Good Doctor. Of course, they killed off Dr Melendez, who
was easy on the eyes and had quite a story line but I guess
at least he didn't die from the corona virus.

We did see the church services on You Tube. I just realized
that I need to deposit our offering money since we haven't been
to church for 3 weeks and expenses don't stop. We can leave the
envelope at the bank as our treasurer works there.
The chicken barn flooded a bit with the rain but it is just too muddy
to do much anyway. We caught up on laundry and made 4 batches
of noodles.
We were contacted by a young man who needed eggs and was
willing to drive to pick them up. He is a student at USD from the
Congo and likes to buy ahead. He took 15 dozen but I think he cannot
afford the cafeteria food or doesn't like it. It was an interesting
conversation. We will add him to our contact list for our planned trips
to Yankton but I think he has enough for now.

DD mentioned the 2+ inches of rain at Mission Hill but we didn't
have that much. It put cleaning the chicken barn on hold so we
will spend time in the house doing other projects. I plan to watch
church services at 9:30 and get closer to God. He is my rock when
all else fails me.

This is such an unsettling time. I hope that people don't make rash decisions about their futures based on the emotional tail spin everyone is in now.

I am worried a bit about the rain. Since the frost is out of the ground, I don't see that as a major problem. I guess it is selfish, but the rain keeps me from going outside to walk, which lately has been a way for me to keep my sanity. I feel like I am on house arrest. I will escape on Monday to school to do some more work, but I can only be there a couple of hours and we all have to stay 6 feet away from each other. Augh.............

DS and wife came from Mitchell and ordered carry out fish fry
from the bar. They were here for 2 hours. Their food was ready
first and our order was done later but we all sat around in the
living room, ate and talked about what was changing in our lives.
He is so ready to be done teaching and it has been so frustrating
but I am not sure he will stay in the insurance business for the
rest of his life and I cannot blame him. The world is so different
and no one knows what to expect next. She is taking a new job in
the Women's Center and will work with labor and delivery staff. She
is very excited as this is her "dream job".

We can't go into fast food restaurants, you have to go through the drive thru to get your food. They are shutting down the salons in town. We were supposed to get out hair cut (Lee and I use the same stylist.) I called her and she will squeeze us in on Saturday. She thinks that will keep us until May. Then we will figure it out.

It is a strange, new world.

Menno's mayor officially closed all bars, restaurants, cafes and
casinos last night and all other businesses are to take extreme
precautions. I now lock my door and only do business by phone,
fax or email. Nothing much different since Monday. Our teachers
move in and out of school for short periods of time and the rest
of town looks like we all moved away in the middle of the night.

I am going into school today. They only let us come in for a short period of time. And they try to keep a few people in the building as possible so it does not become a cleaning nightmare for the custodial staff. I have go so many things to do, but we just have to take it a day at a time.

Easter may be an interest holiday this year. I am glad the kids came here in early March. Everyone just needs to be cautious and stay put.

Get out as often as you can, even if it is only for a few minutes.
The weather looks to be gloomy and rainy until Sunday and then
maybe see some sunshine.
I am not sure how much longer this can last. They removed the
tables and chairs from the convenience store, hid the foam cups
in the kitchen so you have to ask for them but then handle them so
their germs are on the rims and the lids. Most of the businesses
(the few we have) are shutting down. I can at least work without
anyone coming in. Making an appointment to get our taxes done
before that is shut down too.

I had three virtual meetings. I was only able to access two of them. The technology that the were using for the third meeting wouldn't let me on. Such is life.

I have had a bad headache for three days. It could be stress from being in this house for two weeks with only minuscule time out. Having to do this until May 1 is going to really make me crazy.

The days just blend together. Hubby is selling more eggs
now that ever before and the suppliers are upping the price.
Almost $3.00 a dozen now so wonder what will happen by
Easter. No school now until May so the teachers will have their
hands full trying to pull this off. No wonder you are stressed.

I still have a schedule of sorts, although the boss thought I
should now lock the office door, only do business by phone,
email, text or fax. Do not handle any checks and only make
e-payments. Discourage mail being sent through the post office
and don't mail anything that can be sent by email. He even suggested
that I work from home, which would mean taking the office computer
home with me. That is so not happening.
For now, we are cleaning the chicken barn again as it is so wet
and nasty inside but hope the warmer weather and having the doors
open will dry it out.

I am going to make myself a schedule for what I am going to do. I think that is maybe why I have a strange feeling of being at loose ends.

Since we have more people identified in the state, I am doubting that the Gov. is going to let us go back to work on March 30. I am sure there are more people that have it, but we haven't tested enough people to find out where this is going. I guess for now, I would stay out of Huron.

We have TP on hand. Today is Milk Monday so we will buy what we
need for a week. Hubby wanted to bake bread this weekend but we
had market of Saturday and I made 4 batches of jams and we were
working in the hen house yesterday. Just removing the top slimy layer
of manure so we can walk in there instead of sliding around. It needs
to get warm here soon. At least we can let them outside when the weather
is warmer.

Good that you had the eggs. I get mine from our vet. I still have 14 left in my house, but will probably needs some next week. I only have about 9 rolls of toilet paper in the house. I didn't go crazy when most people did. I asked at HyVee if they would get toilet paper. They said Monday or Tuesday. They have put up signs that you can only buy two packs at a time now.

This is just crazy.

We are moving forward with plans for the garden, raising the
new chicks that will come next month and so forth. We had heard
that there were no eggs to be found in Yankton so we loaded up
the Ford Edge with 180 dozen eggs and headed out. We had 62
dozen spoken for before we left and FB inquiries and an obvious
set up site and we sold 85 dozen. We also sold some sauerkraut,
jams and noodles. Everyone that stopped knows we will be back
in 2 weeks and how to contact us. Stores can't keep up with the
demand.

I know. I have resisted looking at my school e-mail because in the back of my mind I just want this to be a minor inconvenience not a complete change in how life works. Found out that I have a virtual meeting on the 25th and then there is a state-wide meeting of SPED folks on Tuesday. I guess this is the new business as usual.

The worst thing about this is the uncertainty of what is coming next.
How long will this last? Will there be enough food to go around? What
happens if I get sick? I worry about all the small businesses that will
struggle to keep the door open. Do I plan for farmers market and plant
that huge garden? So many unanswered questions.

We just have to realize that so much is out of our control and
go with it. We complain when we have to go to work and now
we will complain because we have to stay home. Considering
the alternative, I could stay home and find something to do to
keep busy. Baking bread is next on my list.

We weren't supposed to be in school today anyway. Bon Homme is on a 4 day school week. This was one of our unscheduled days. It kind of loses it's luster when we have been out the four days previous. Oh well. They "postponed" our prom which was supposed to be the 4th of April. They say they have not picked an alternate date, yet. What about the 15th of June? I am not a big fan of prom anyway, so if they just cancelled it, it wouldn't upset me.

My daughter lives in Ames. Her husband is a bus driver for the district. She has been told she has to work from home, and the girls are off for four weeks. They had spring break this week, but now have three additional weeks before they can consider whether school will open or not.

I got all my homework done on Tuesday so I am just cleaning house and baking bread (the smell as it bakes comforts me). Considering that the bread aisle in HyVee is pretty slim, I am glad I have that skill. We will hunker down here at home this weekend. There is no church this weekend, again, but there will be something on television or You-tube. Maybe we will have to set up the card table and play Monopoly.

My niece who teaches in Iowa said her school is on lockdown.
No entering the building for any reason for the foreseeable future.
If you are caught, you could be jailed. She says she doesn't
need anything there but what a thought.

All 3 teachers in the family say it has been a huge learning curve
to distance teach. DD's kids who only communicate with sign language
are the one who will lose as they have no internet. What a mess and
even another week is no promise that school will be in session after that.
I am hearing reports that schools are canceling Prom so it is no
surprise that this is an unusual year. At least they will not be cancelling
school for snow today.

We have no church tonight. We will have no church on Saturday and Sunday. (Lee is glad because we were supposed to sing this lovely song--in Latin. He hated the piece.) This morning we are having a virtual teacher's meeting to determine how we are going to provide education to kids at their home. Most people would think that we can do this virtually, but we have a number of students who do no t have internet access in their homes.

I want to go out and get some milk, but HyVee is decreasing it's hours. They are only going to be open 8 am to 8 pm. We will get through this.

No church Wednesday but may see a post on FB.
SIL wants to know if we should close the office but we
have so few people who come in that I think it will be okay.
Feed store is another matter but I will clean and disinfect
as needed.
Eye clinic was almost deserted-only 2 patients and a few
staff. One lady working in the Spectacle Shop when I
ordered my new glasses. It was like a ghost town.

Happy St Patrick's Day!
Avoid crowds and keep groups to 10 or less.
I would imagine church services will now be cancelled but
will wait until we get that notice. Office is now closed to foot
traffic but there isn't much of that anyway. I will go to the eye
doctor today. I could have changed my appointment to earlier
in the day but left it despite the receptionist saying they had
cancellations. More changes to come.

Our administrator is gone but everyone was told to take
home their computers and all textbooks. DD is patiently
waiting for word of the next step but e-learning seems to
be what will happen. Just now certain how soon or even how.
Choir has been cancelled for now but the regular services
will be held. All subject to change.

Last night they cancelled both the Saturday evening and both Sunday services. We also will have no Lenten service this Wednesday.

We can't do any e-learning this week, as we can't even get into the building until Monday the 23rd. If we would do some typeof e-learning teachers would have to be able to get to their computers and white boards, and if you didn't take your laptop home on Friday, you are out of luck.

It's a whole new world out there.

Since we have no children, having no Sunday School is not an issue.
I set up for communion and will wash the glass cups and all of the
communion ware after services, including the communion rail. DD has
not heard of the school restrictions as our superintendent is gone and
has not left any instructions. SIL has asked that our clients call, text
or email the office instead of walking in. This is looking to be serious
but sad. Not even sure if the school is doing e-learning although the band
teacher is talking about something close to it.

Well we got the message yesterday that we are not to even come to the school building before Monday the 23rd. We are complying with the Governor's request.

Our church sent something out yesterday evening that we will not have Sunday School tomorrow. They will have services but we are not passing the offering plate, having communion or having coffee fellowship. There will be no Soup Supper on Wednesday and there will be no Lenten service on Wednesday. We should be one healthy set of Lutheran by the end of next week. I'd laugh, but it's not funny.

DD and SIL will not be going to Jamaica and chose to not
be quarantined for 2 weeks and away from their children.
I was very glad they chose to stay home, as much as they
had anticipated this vacation and how hard they worked to
"earn" this trip with the company, it isn't worth it. And they
will maybe have the fun of seeing the home team finish the
State B's girls BB games.

How things have changed in 24 hours. All the sporting
events cancelled or no audiences allowed, all non-essential travel
curbed, schools and universities closing for extra days to clean
or plan accommodations for the coronavirus. This will be a time
of picking priorities and the world will not be the same.

Church services are such a blessing midweek.
Making plans to have a family dinner with DD and
her family, MIL and SIL. Decided that we really didn't
think it was a bright idea to have her come here and
get her up 5 steps and into the house. I think we can
take the meal to her much easier.

Enough moisture to turn to ice on my windshield by noon but
melted off later. Don't need more for now. Going to the dentist
today and made sure the boss knows I need to leave early. I

It was beautiful yesterday and now we are back to late winter weather. Oh well. At least it didn't snow today. We had some pelting sleet, but nothing really to worry about. Bella and I went for a 40 minute walk this evening. It was good for both of us.

Better part of the afternoon spent outside. Good friend helped
hubby and DS prune his apple and ash tree in front of the house,
then out to the farm to trim both ash trees there. He has a wood
chipper so all of the branches are already turned into wood chips
that we can spread in the garden or whatever.
MIL is improving and thinks she will be able to bowl again this year.
Time will tell but at least she has a goal in mind that may push her
to do her therapy.

Influenza A and B in school-sometimes 25+ gone in 1 day.
Loving the warmer weather but could do without the wind.
MIL and hubby are home. The doctor was not too crazy about
her going home but she kept saying she needs to be home.
No sleeping in her bed for at least a week, Someone needs
to be there to get her to the bathroom. The therapists were
unhappy because she couldn't follow directions or remember
what she was supposed to be doing. Anesthesia does that to
her. Long slow recovery ahead.

This has been just a crazy week at school. I don't know why it has been this way. Perhaps because so many kids are absent, that it makes it a little unbalanced at school. We are having so many kids being diagnosed with Influenza B.

Lee and Kevin are going to fix Kevin's fence today. It had a problem due to the wind this week. That gives me time to do some house work. We are making a Costco run tomorrow after church.

Making headway in the basement as I have cleaned out more
shelves, emptied, wash and reboxed quarts jars. I am making
sure that when I start canning again, everything will be ready to go.
Eventually I will have to rearrange what canned goods are left
and wash the shelves.
I will load up the SUV later and head to Yankton. I hope I have
a good mini-market day.

I had a bat flying around in the house on Wednesday night but
knocked it down with the broom and covered it with the rug to carry
outside. It was gone in the morning. Surgery went well as she had
a spinal block with just a little anesthesia. She is having more pain
but it is manageable and she will come home tomorrow. I will be
in charge of the mini farmers market on my own.

I had a totally different plan for my afternoon but ended up working
later than usual and hubby had other plans as well. He goes to the
VA dentist today, then over to Parkston to help his mom pre-plan and
pay for her funeral. Tomorrow is head to SF day and get ready for
hip surgery. I need to make sure I have everything in place for our
mini market on Saturday, which I may be doing alone.

Hopefully she will qualify and you are just doing your job to help her.
I caught up with laundry as well and started sorting through clothes in
my closet. I have barely made a dent but at least I began the process.
It will be a crazy week with hubby gone from Wednesday on with MIL
and her hip surgery. He seems to think it is no big deal because DS
will do all the chores and he is hoping I will take care of all the rest.

Sounds like a busy weekend. I had Friday off and did a bunch of errands that had been waiting for my attention. Yesterday I finished most of the laundry. Didn't get it all done last week so it has just been sitting there sorted waiting for me to get through that also. Augh.....

Back to work today, but will spend most of the morning in Tabor as I need to test a little girl to see if she is eligible for services. I don't think she is going to make it, but I will do everything I can (legally) to try and get her to qualify. The kid has absolutely no help at home, if you can call a home with no running water a home...but perhaps I am too critical.

Full day of work on Friday, tried to come home early so we could leave
for Brookings sooner. Hubby has showered and is watching tv and hasn't
packed a thing. Little perturbed that I didn't pack for him but I needed to
change and pack myself. Leaving at 4:30 and he had wanted to leave at 4.
Miffed with my choice of route I wanted to drive but at least he agreed that
if I was driving, I could decide. Easiest to go on I-29 and then over to
Elkton. There in plenty of time. Nice to spend the night at DS's, calm and
leisurely breakfast. Concert at 3, done at 4:45 and then straight home.
Working on a plan to clean closets today and be ready for work tomorrow.

Wow, things have been a nut house at school. We have kids who are truant, and have been trying to find out where the heck they are. Of course we had to get law enforcement and the state's attorney involved. I think they have packed up and fled. I have a teacher who is causing me grief. We had to deal with her drama this week. I haven't gotten my steps in on Wednesday or yesterday. Today is an unscheduled day at school, so no one is going in. That is good maybe I can catch up.

Very large funeral in our congregation for a wonderful man who
was a rock to all who knew him. Now I need to set up communion
for Sunday as we are going to Brookings to hear GD play in the
All State Band concert.

Hubby left at 7:15 and was home by 5. He needs to go back
on Tuesday to have the dentist check his upper plate to see if
it is fitting properly, then takes MIL to check in early on Wednesday
for hip surgery Thursday am. No end to the running to doctors.

Surgery is scheduled for next Thursday and that is a relief.
MIL's car had a recall on the passenger side air bag so they
scheduled to have it fixed when she was at her appointment.
Left her Subaru at the dealership at 11:30 and it wasn't finished
until almost 5 pm. The receptionist said they could squeeze it in
but then said it was such a busy Monday and they should have
brought it in on a different day. But it is done and now MIL has
2 less things to dwell on.

We spent most of the day in Delmont with MIL and going
to the Sausage Supper and seeing lots of old friends and
missing others. Quite a crowd and we even waited until
almost 1 before we went.
I finished the crop reports with hubby's brother and he got
tired of waiting and went to sleep on the couch. He and MIL
will drive to Sioux Falls today and finalize plans for her hip
surgery. We all just want it done.

Really awesome day to accomplish so much, feel so tired
but glad to have it behind me. I spent a good 2 hours either
at the farm or working in the barn behind the house. We covered
the rat holes in the brooder barn at the acreage, caught,
crated and moved the older chicks and then set them up in their
much larger residence. Then burned all of DD's paper garbage
at the farm, home for lunch and a short rest and then I cleaned
out the brooder barn here and moved the oldest chicks out of the
basement while hubby delivered eggs to the store in Freeman.
Over 11k of steps-a very good day.
Headed to Delmont today to see MIL, get crop records from hubby's
brother and go to the Firemen's Sausage Supper.
Have a great Sunday!

Small attendance at crop insurance meeting but that was
expected. Not like the good old days. Glad to have that done.
Worked so hard on a flood insurance quote but found the couple
had a lapse in coverage and once paid, coverage is again active.
I wasted so much time on that and when I mentioned it to the
boss, he said, oh, yeah, they called yesterday afternoon. I forgot
to tell you. Sheesh.

At least you had a decent traveling day. The last time we were
at the Capitol you could enter in almost any door on the building.
Times have changed. Way to busy yesterday to think as so many
"have-tos" hit the desk and everything had to be done now.
We have a crop insurance meeting today and I have to leave
early to open the door, start the coffee and set up for lunch later.
Back in the day we would have 40-60 farmers, now maybe 15.
Either the farmers have retired or moved their insurance to the
"new guy in town" who pressured them to leave us since he has
all the kids to raise and we didn't need the income anymore. I
guess it makes no difference but still sad to see folks who get their
arms twisted like that.
