How did this day almost pass without a blog post? What’s the world coming to? We probably don’t want to know! 🙂
Yesterday on the way home from picking up groceries, Vince and I had this conversation in the car:
Vince: Tuesday is the day old folks can go in early to Aldi and Walmart. Want to go?
Me: We just picked up the grocery order with everything we need for two weeks.
Vince: There are some things I think we still need.
Me: You go but I don’t want to go.
Vince: What if this ends up being like your bridge fear ad you turn into a recluse.
Me: Wouldn’t bother me! Would it bother you?
We had been talking about trying to get some eggplant plants. I’ve planted seeds but never have much luck with eggplant seeds – especially this late. Vince called the local nursery to see if they had gotten in any eggplant plants. They were out but said they should have some in today. They said they had two left! He called Home Depot and they had none. He called the nursery back and asked them to hold the two plants so we ran down there. We both wore our masks. The place was packed. No social distancing in there. With probably 15 people in there, I saw two others with masks.
We probably had them on less than 5 minutes. We went into the greenhouse, grabbed a couple of yellow squash plants (because I only had a few yellow squash seeds!), 4 watermelon plants and 4 cantaloupe plants, went in, got the eggplant plants, got a few yellow squash to eat this week and we were out of there.
I had told Vince that I didn’t feel like we were exposed. We didn’t talk to anyone, didn’t get close, got in the car and used the Clorox wipes. I told Vince I’d wash the masks but he said “Sunlight kills everything!”
I hung them on the line and they were in the sun for at least four hours. No telling how long it will be before we use them again . . I’m going to hang them back on the line and I think I’ll still wash them. Can’t be too careful!
