We're getting ready to go out to the coast house--probably either Tuesday or Wednesday.  We used this pandemic to get prepared for an earthquake as well--we now have rice and beans and a water filter,  Tim stocked up on proteins that we'll tote out to the coast, and we're in pretty good shape. There are still no confirmed cases in our county or in Tillamook county (where the house is), but most other counties in Oregon have cases.

And here is how I prepared:

I was going to try to do a stop motion video but yeah.

Anyway, we feel fine and we think we'll be fine and we're hoping that the virus will be tamped down---it seems like people here are actively doing social distancing, and I haven't been out in public (except for dog walks) since Thursday.

I've done a bit more on the Local Yarn Shop shawl--
and I started a new tiny needle project-

I'm taking a bunch of tiny needle stuff as well.

In readings--I am reading two books now--"The Antidote for Everything" by Kimmery Martin and "The Ancient Nine" by Ian K. Smith. I've read another book by Martin--she's an MD (as is Smith) and writes what I might call 'light' stories about doctors. This one has started a bit too-romancy (the meet cute episode---she's flying to a medical conference and he had a reaction to allergy medicine and needed medical help on the flight) so I put that on the back burner. The Ancient Nine is about secret societies at Harvard (I'm a total sucker for secret society novels) and is set in Cambridge (of course) in the 1980s, when I lived there, so it is fun to hear about all the places in Harvard Square that were part of my life (and probably don't exist any more).

Last night we watched "Ford vs Ferrari" which was a pretty good movie, particularly for a movie for which I had no interest in the topic.

Stay well and safe, all!

Great prep work! No cases here, but people are preparing. Church service was long this morning as changes (COVID-19 adaptations) were explained.
