A whirlwind week | bleuwater
Olive the cat getting out of my way as I thoroughly clean home.

It is a hectic 7 days or two. We returned from a vacation to Mexico. I wrote about that Below.

My son and his girlfriend are going to from the Bay Area. We are gong to check out Taliesin West later on nowadays. It will be a initially for all of us. That is the winter season residence of Frank Lloyd Wright. We’ll be likely on a self-guided tour. A coincidence is that a mate of mine from playgroup days in Palm Springs is a director of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation. What a compact planet! I discovered out from a buddy in Palm Springs that our mutual good friend had moved to Arizona a thirty day period or two in advance of us. I wrote about coincidences just lately Below.

Next 7 days, I fly to Seattle to visit my 90-calendar year-previous mom. I meant to check out for her birthday past March, but we had been in the throws of Omicron. Equally my daughter and husband got it. What bizarre times people were being. I was getting treatment of my daughter — without the need of being around her. We would wave at every other by means of her apartment window. I’d go to the laundromat and grocery retail outlet for her and go away factors on her entrance methods.

When my partner had COVID, I moved into our Casita. It has a kitchen area, so I cooked him chicken soup with a lot of garlic and onions. I’d go away it outside the front door and textual content him. I was close if he essential me, but I was not in actual physical speak to.

I now have an aversion to traveling. We have taken journeys by car or truck, which I’m comfortable with, but I haven’t required to get on an plane. I just can’t stand the hold out at the airport, the crowds, currently being on the plane. COVID ruined traveling for me.

Did COVID transform your thoughts about flying, also? Or did it have an effect on you in other techniques? Did you or your family get it?
