My Fall Update - Life Happens

Good Day! Well It's been a while Since I have Written. As with everyone in the world. We have had to Curtailed our traveling. For  six months we stayed at home.  So.... what did we do?

First off we had new floors put in our entire first floor. Hickory Hardwood flooring. We included the stairs to the second floor also. Hubby has been saving up to do this for some time. Since we were stuck at home Now was  the time to do it. So glad we did. I do like them.

 I had been saving up for an Updated Master bathroom. Looked around at different companies and decided  on one of them. Had that done and I did put in a  bluetooth speaker. Love the new look.

Our Lower deck in the back  needed repair. Decided on just updating it  to match the one we had put in a couple years ago. Went with the same company. It really looks good. All the photos will be on the Yard and  Garden Blog.

Hubby retired as I stated in the last post in January. We were saving up to take a long vacation mimicking our 70's Honeymoon. Traveling through  several states. Because of Covid we could not do that. Took those funds and did the updates on the house. It was well worth it!! Have enjoyed just staying home all that time.

In October and Early November we took a small vacation to The Carolina's. Visited Family and had a great time. Hope to do some more traveling in the near future. Have to wait until all this Covid thing is fixed. Our lives and times will be forever changed. Things will not go back to as we knew it. Change is not a bad thing, just an adjustment. Being in the military has taught us to  deal with Changes. That is a Good thing for us. I look forward to the changes as well as this new Retirement life!!

Grinding with Auntie E: In this time of Covid 19.

This is a most Trying Time for us. In February went went to Tennessee for a vacation. Plus we were celebrating Hubby's retirement. Had a great time. Then we traveled to Virginia to the Beach House. We stayed there worked with the FOP Aux on a St Patti's Party. That was a lot of fun. We spent time with our Daughter in Virginia, did some work around the House. We were just enjoying our time of retirement. Planing our across the states Tour Vacation for May through July. Looking forward to spending the 4th of July in Colorado! Then a Screeching halt!!!!

End of March Covid 19 entered.  House Bound, We are in our mid 60's and they say that age is vulnerable!! Okay Now we are at a house with two folks how a working in a Public venue.  So, What to do. We can not travel back to Maryland. Due to the Virus. The decision was made in end of March. Did some calling to see how it was in our town. Decided to  drive straight through, no stopping to get home. All our shopping was done for TP,  and all the things we would need at the main house to last 14 days. Quarantined for 14 days  Since we were in areas of Covid 19 cases.

We arrived to the Main house and there we stayed til today. Travel plans put on  hold for now. I try to stay outside in the yard as much as possible. We have Online concerts and live music for our Dinner time. Trying to make the best of Living this way. We have ventured out a few times. It is always I little uncomfortable. Mostly because not all folks are wearing masks. We ate out two times and decided not a good idea right now. Although the tent dining was nice.

Hubby has had some Medical issues. Most of his appointment have been Video and Tellie appointments. He has had a couple office visits. I took him and waited in the Car  for him.  Meds are sent to the House for him and Doctors call to follow up. Not a bad thing. What a change this Covid Pandemic has made.

Let's STOP!!!!!

I am so upset with our Americans and society. What are they thinking? Our police force is our protectors!. If you remove them because of a few bad apples and see everything as a bad thing... How can they do their job? When a person grabs an officers weapon and runs with it, Turning to shot the officer... What do you think will happen???? How can the media say the officer did wrong??? We have a big problem with Media and folks. On top of everything This Black Lives Matter and Now Blue Lives Matter is not helping at all. I support all our Police officers. We should not have to fight back as if we are two separate groups. All Lives Matter!!! However if a person breaks the law of the land.. They will be punished and it could lead to Death. Many Officers die in the line of duty. Everyday leaving their home to protect the People. Many people die in Gang warfare, innocent kills in the line of everyday fire, by Civilians, criminals, or someone hunting, cleaning a weapon. Do we hear the things about them as we are being told in the news about Officers. Please let's just stop this Race card. Which is only being caused by a few folks. Most Americans do not play the Race card. However, if this card is continue to be played... It may Cause a reverse in some folks mind. Sending us back into the 50's and 60's. Cause unnecessary divisions.
