COVID-19 quarantine life in Seattle is 3 and quarter months in, and just the same at the Cox Castle - although we could all have a haircut a few weeks ago!
Working from home, and really - nowhere to go, other than walk Sam and the occasional errand run on foot. No clients, no shopping, no traveling, and no gatherings at all. No eating out, but we have ventured into take-aways! The same anxieties and stresses remain, but we soldier through them day to day. We are strong, upbeat, grateful and safe.
Moving into Modified Phase 1 means that there are more people out, and more cars on the road. But very little is open. Lots of restaurants and most retailers are still very boarded up around here because of the protests. The graffiti is quite stunning. Some restaurants and cafes are opening their outside patios with 30% capacity on Friday to Sunday. Very few offering indoor dining at 25% capacity.
Apparently things will open very slowly next week, when we might move into Phase 2. Nordies flagship will re-open on June 23rd, but will be a very, very soft opening.
This is the first time I'm wearing the RL very casual T-shirt dress that I bought in January. It's navy and tomato. I had to wait for Summer weather, which has finally arrived :) Gorgeously sunny and 23C. Up to 26C soon. WOOHOOO! I'm going to wear my pretty dresses every day.
Modern Classics work well on me, which is why I am drawn to them. Nothing to explain here really, other than that Greg loves the dress, I felt Euro wearing this look, it's very comfortable/practical, and I no longer wear lipstick. Forgot to take a pic of my mask, which I wear whenever I go out the front door.
Hair is naturally tousled, and doing its own thing. Very much enjoying my low maintenance hair - sign of the times. I am growing it into a short '70s shag of sorts. I like to have hair projects!
Thanks for looking. Off to walk Sam, and think about which cake I'm going to bake next :)
