"Routine" ​ 😁 ​day in lockdown... how was yours?

I don’t know it it is true or not, but an old neighbour to our place in Alberta, said that the grass hoppers would be so thick on the roads some years cars would slide off of into the ditch like it was ice. 

 

A quick YouTube search makes me wonder if it is possible. 🤔 I would not want to clean the windshield after, or the imagine the blockage of air through the rad after driving through this. 🤮

Haven’t tried them on the grill but sounds like something worthy of a try. Today it raining so I found something I could cook inside.

The boss was pleased. That’s all that matters. 

 

Of course 😁.

 

And today, A Happy and Healthier New Jewish Year 🌺

 

We're starting a 2nd lock down today, for all the period of Jewish Holidays (3 weeks, at least....)

Sorry to hear about lockdown Dani, Is it confined to house or do you have permitted exercise time. We are, heading that way in UK 😒

Same in UK. Soon as lockdown lifted its been almost impossible to book cottages or river boat holidays  as most people booked UK holidays instead of foreign trips. Getting a little easier now for hotels, but self catering places still fully booked

 

Have a nice fully equipped motor home (AKA "land yacht" 😉 )....and can't find any parks that are not booked up already to be able to use it.  😞 

 

Thus...have instead opted for "road trip" in my little SUV.  Leaving in about an hour for the beautiful beaches of the Florida Panhandle...thankfully after Sally has come and gone!  Three weeks, three different beach condo rentals for each week...which I had no problem booking (go figure).

We can go "outside" -- 1 km from the house (it was 500 meter at the beginning, 100 meter the 1st lockdown). No limit in individual exercise, but you can't use the car... Same with seaside -- u can walk/swim alone. For us the sea is too far to walk. My son can surf, luckily he has a bicycle.

 

Public work is restricted to 30-50% of the workforce. Private companies -- no restrictions.

 

Hotels, rooms for rent, gyms, pools, hairdressers, nail saloons, restaurants (deliveries only) - closed. Moms & Pops small eateries are doomed, they can't afford deliveries. I can't swim in our open air Olympic pool, but if I wanted to go to a ritual bath, which is in a closed confined space - I can....

 

Lots of the above restrictions are not making sense, and the people are not as complying as in the 1st lockdown.

 

Then the feeling was as during the Blitz - we're all in this together, like Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother said: "The children won't go without me. I won't leave the King. And the King will never leave." Turns out that the President, the PM, ministers and congressmen, all spent the equivalent of your Christmas Eve with their families, whereas "we" were relegated to be alone and far from our dearest...

 

I'm not overly optimistic that this time we'll manage to "flatten the curve"....

We were in Isarel for 15 days, February 2019. We are friends on Facebook with one of our young tour guides. We follow him and he posts pictures and videos of the mostly young people (I say early 20’s) protesting against the PM. We seldom see them with masks on nor social distancing.

My friends and I are also protesting, but on bridges. We're all pushing 70 and more.

 

Nevertheless, according to the police and the Ministry of Health, not even one person contacted Covid-19 during the protests in open air....

 

OTOH, many contacted Covid-19 during mass weddings in Arab or in mostly religious cities.

My DH decided that, even if there are only the two of us for the festive dinner tonight, at least one "element" should be present -- stuffed fish...😁

Happy New Year!  It's just my husband and me so I have a brisket that's been cooking all day.  Your dinner looks delicious!

Enjoy your celebrations.  I have never had it but it looks good.  Iam definitely going to try it.  Is it potatoes and hard boiled egg with fish balls and carrots?

Thanks.

Yes, and onions and condiments according to your taste.

We're using carp, since pike is not available here. The fish should be grounded twice.

According to DH, the spine and the head are very important, since they provide the gelatin.

Enjoy !

Went out for a rip in a summer car and picked up the last of the sweet corn. The hut shuts tomorrow.  Also whipped past the mall and picked this up on the way home. 
 

Owen texted to when we were getting home as he had a bowl waiting on the counter.  LOL, it might not have all made it home.

woke up to awful news this morning, but went to my already scheduled hair appointment and left feeling refreshed T least.

While I was getting my hair done Nate got a call that the couch was in. Turns out it was only half the couch 🤣

Having dinner with my mom tonight who moved to Denver this week from Sacramento. Celebrating Jewish new year (Nates heritage) and her move. 

The leaves here are starting to change and it’s beautiful. Hoping to get out on a hike tomorrow and get some drone footage.

Or even worse riding a motorcycle. 🤬

That's a very small couch. :classic_biggrin: And it doesn't look very comfortable. :classic_biggrin: Hopefully the other parts arrive soon. 

And RBG was such an icon and a fighter. It is very sad.
