Autumn

It’s the first day of meteorological autumn. My favorite season.

My brain is still drain. Not sure why. Am getting out more, being around people more. Not good for thinking? LOL I am thinking, though. Thinking I am getting concerned again about the virus. I am torn between wanting to go out and have lunch and shop and whatever, but my friend that I go places is with has become rather cavalier about safety, and does a lot of things with others where no masks are worn. We and her husband are all vaccinated, but we can still get sick and/or make others sick. I think if I get sick again, I may not survive it. I’m not saying I had the virus the first time I was sick, but my symptoms were similar, and I am still not recovered over a year and a half later. Go out, have a life/risk death. Some choice.

DD came down a couple of weeks ago, and we also went to lunch, but at a place with outside dining and fans blowing outside air past us. She is adamant about safety measures. Makes me happy. I see so many people not wearing masks in stores. Unless I am actively eating, I wear my mask all the time. I am starting to dread winter, being shut in and alone again, with dark days and nobody to talk to. Bah. Also, humbug. It is what it is, and I will get through it. I always do. If I don’t get sick. 😦

  1. I’m worried, too. Some are blatantly ignoring the inside mask mandate, and others are stupidly wearing theirs only over their mouth, or under their chin -what, as a nod to wearing one?? I don’t get it – and I’ve started double-masking when I go places because I’ve read a regular mask isn’t strong enough with Delta. And who knows with Mu. We’re never going back to “normal” and people just don’t want to face that.

    • I have to agree that ‘normal’ is not coming back, at least anytime soon. Life as we’ve known it is changing, and that is scary to a lot of people, and they choose to pretend to themselves that it is not happening. We are living through a monumental upheaval to the way things were, and it’s adapt or die, I think. It’s not just the ‘plague’, it’s climate change, which only complete morons can still deny. Change is always scary, but it’s not always a bad thing. Who knows how we’ll wind up? Adapt, adapt, adapt. That’s what humans are good at. I am going to start double-masking, too, and no more eating indoors at restaurants, I think. It’s only been three times, but I have been nervous about it every time, and in a couple of places, the servers were not masked, either. Need to put my foot down. LOL
