Clearing...

 That is what I've been doing...

I've gone through my closet and drawers, the kitchen, the bathroom and organized the foodstuffs in the hall and the hurricane supplies in my bedroom closet  So far, three boxes and an old suitcase have gone and my I MAC and a desk of my grandmother's remain to re-home. At some point, I will need to tackle the storage off the screened porch but that is so narrow I can't get in it. I have boxes of old papers and returns to sort out and would rather not leave those for someone else to deal with should I be gone. I also want to re-organize my current papers and make room for what is left in the bedroom closet so that every bit of paperwork is in one place.

 A friend who works at the county health department has sent an email with contact information for homebound persons over sixty in need of COVID vaccinations. I will be calling this week for more information. Truthfully, I've put that off because I'm anxious about the whole thing. The thought of anyone coming in here or standing close enough to administer an injection now fills me with dread. Not so one year ago but we are in a vastly different circumstance at this point.

Spring blew in with chilly winds and it was jacket weather here until yesterday. Though warming it is still breezy enough for the blinds to move a bit with the windows open and with the sun creating spots on the floor, Lukas is happily lazing. I love sunlight on his fur. He almost glows.

I've had my jab about 3 weeks ago and I have to say I'm so relieved. I'm booked into get the next one in May. As long as you are both wearing masks, and take all the normal precautions, windows open, sanitising hands etc. I think it's pretty safe. The injection is so quick I didn't even know they'd done it.

I hope you can get the vaccine soon. I suspect that the county health department will arrive suitably covered and take all the necessary precautions (but I totally understand your fear).
Sunlight on a contented cat is a joy isn't it?

My jab was last week - I'm not especially fearful of the virus and yet I was delighted to have it; the science is amazing and a beacon of hope. I felt quite buoyed up afterwards and hope you do too.

I wonder if they could give you the shot outdoors -- like on your front walk? That might relieve your worry. They say the risk of transmission outdoors is very remote.

I hear your fear about being at close range to get the back. But they're very fast, and can do the observation distanced. They'll be gloved and masked and probably gowned too. You'll be relieved when it's done.

I think you would be perfectly safe to get the vaccine. I understand your feelings though. Still- you don't want to stay in your apartment forever.

I hear you E on the fear. Double mask perhaps? Even disposable gloves to be overly cautious. Florida is rampant with it. You could check to make sure the one giving you the shot takes equal precautions.

Good luck and there's something about a beloved animal lying in the sun that makes the heart sing, isn't there?

I have heard more that one person say that after being in at home for so long, they are afraid to go back

I think I'm going to have to toss my years of work payments. Most were for interesting and fun jobs and they do revive some nice memories so I have been putting it off.
