The backroads of Louisiana

Along the country back roads in Louisiana in the middle of nowhere was the prettiest wildflowers growing on the sides of the road.

I think these are part of the Rudbeckias family of flowers but I am not for sure.

Yellow wildflowers in the middle of the piney woods make a striking photo early in the morning.

Nature’s beauty is there to remind us life will return to normal it is just a matter of time.

 

Chris Mann Parodies

Chris Mann was on The Voice he is a very talented singer.

While we are going through our stay at home orders & self quarantines he started doing parodies of other songs now this means acting as well as singing he is just so talented.

Here are 3 of my favorites but there are lots more.

I laughed so hard and it was the best laugh I have had in about 5 weeks. I really needed this laugh a big thank you to Chris Mann.

Let us know which is your favorite. ENJOY!

FEAR

The word fear can mean so much in a time like this.

The Rapper Pitbull says fear can mean two things.

Forget Everything and Run or it can mean Face Everything and Rise.

Click the link below to hear the song he wrote for the world anthem for the current pandemic we are in with coronavirus.

Pass it on so everyone can Face Everything and Rise.

I BELIEVE WE WILL WIN

Day 14 self-quarantine

Today is Day 14 of self-quarantine for me.

I have not left this yard or house. The only human contact I have had in 14 days in my husband. He has been picking up the supplies we need using senior hours that have been provided and taking Mother N Law her meals.

He even went and got 2 more yards of dirt we have been through 2 yards a few weeks ago. WHY you ask in case he gets bored lol. I think he’s scared they will run out of the dirt.

We worked in the yard all weekend and we both were exhausted.

He is down to 4 more work days and he will be officially retired. That’s two more this week and 2 next week.

I have some papers that need to be notarized and I need some more flowers for these new flower beds and flower pots.

At this point its a matter of when do I go out.

They said this week would be the worst as far as cases documented. That’s not encouraging to me wanting to get out there but I can not be a full-time hermit.

I do not like this.

 

 

 

Germs and the Pandemic

What are you doing to protect your family during this pandemic?

Since I have high blood pressure, heart and lung issues I am taking extra precautions. My husband has high blood pressure and diabetes. We are trying to protect ourselves the best we can.

I have self quarantined for the last week. We only do HEB curbside pick up for groceries and we get Walmart and amazon deliveries. We go through the drive-through at CVS to pick up prescriptions.

Now what you have to remember is all your groceries, scripts and products have been touched by other people so disinfect boxes, packages and bottles of stuff with wet wipe disinfectants.

If you have some wipes that are dried out do not throw them away. Wet them with water and pour rubbing alcohol on them. Put in a zip lock and pack it into the container. Just remember to use these on surfaces only they work great.

I make meals for my mother n law she is 92 years old. Rather than me taking them over to her, my husband has been doing this for the last two weeks this was for both our safety. We will now change this to ringing the doorbell and doing a drop off only for her safety.

Elderly people should not be exposed to those who are around a lot of people my husband still has a few more weeks of working 3 day work weeks so, therefore, I think the drop off is the best option.

I keep Clorox disinfecting wipes so I have a few containers of those. I also have the brown Lysol,  & Lysol laundry sanitizer. On top of that, I have two gallons of Clorox. This is part of my normal cleaning products, not something I had to rush out and get.

I have a product called Oxvir Five 16 Concentrate it is a one-step disinfectant cleaner. This product is a Virucidal, Fungicidal, Bactericidal, Mildewcidal. It comes in 1 1/2 quart container of concentrate and its made to go on a hose and trust me very hard to get out otherwise. We figured out you can puncture the container and mix it up in a gallon jug but then you have now punctured this large container so glue the hole shut and tape with duct tape.

I have the quart containers of instant hand sanitizer that goes in the dispenser for commercial use.  I do love my auctions for cleaning products lol.

I feel as though this nightmare will not end anytime soon.  Wash your hands and then wash them again. Change out hand towels several times a day.  Disinfect doorknobs and surfaces that are touched often. Do not forget steering wheels and door handles in cars. Wipe off your credit and debit cards, the bottom of purses and handles and also your wallets.

Wash your children’s backpacks, shoes, etc.

Do not hug anyone, shake hands or get more than 6 feet from those you have to be around in stores or work.

Children are not showing symptoms like adults so do not trust the fact they are not sick today because they might be sick tomorrow. We have not been around our grandchildren in over a week.

We can all get through this by taking precautions and being smart and most of all using common sense.
