My bad! I have to apologize for missing yesterday! It’s only a week into the challenge and I’ve already dropped the ball. I’ll double up today, as well as another blog about my new release, so you’ll hear lots from me today. I’ll do my best to spread them out!
Yesterday was F. To recap, in case you’re just stopping by, I’m participating in the A-Z- Blogging Challenge this year. This means, I’ll post something every day in April, except for Sundays, all with a connecting theme and following a letter of the alphabet. This year, unsurprisingly, my theme has to do with the big bad out in the world. Every day I will pick three things about Covid-19 – the good, the bad and the ugly – and tie it all together with the day’s letter from the alphabet.
THE GOOD: FRIENDS
On-line FRIENDS that is. Or maybe the lady who walks the dog by your house twice a day – today might be a good day to give her a wave and ask how she’s doing, all from the safety of six feet away, of course! I’m fortunate to have friends checking up on me via text, calls, and social media, and I hope you do, too. If not, I’ll check up on you. How are you doing? Do you have everything you need? Sending virtual hugs!
THE BAD: FLOUR
Everyone is baking. Along with eggs, there’s a definite shortage of flour in the stores. I have plans to attempt to make sourdough bread (not much of a baker, but love sourdough and I have time to start from scratch!) so I hope I have enough. If not, I may be asking my FRIENDS (see above) to borrow some!
THE UGLY: FACEBOOK
Not that Facebook is a bad thing – it’s great for keeping in contact with friends and family. I use it as much as anyone. But what I think is ugly is that people continue to get their information and news from it. Yes, some of it is the truth, but a lot of it isn’t, so be careful. Also, the negativity and bad news can really do a number on your stress levels. These days, I try to limit my time on social media, and post positives when I do.
THE UGLY (part 2): FAMILY
Not seeing your FAMILY. If you’re not quarantined with them, you’re not seeing them, and this is difficult for all. It’s heartbreaking at times.
