So. Much. Damn. Excitement!

Life here on the coast is so incredibly exciting!!!

We work kind of all the time. My students are struggling. My colleagues are struggling. I'm struggling. Tim works really hard and then takes out the frustrations of our current situation by chopping wood.

However, there is a bit of fun when-

We go to the recycling place! I shared our excitement of getting garbage delivery out here--but we have to take our recycling to the 'transfer station' which is a fancy word for the dump. We had a LOT to take over there yesterday and it was a beautiful afternoon--so WHY NOT SPEND IT AT THE DUMP?

We have a social distancing Happy Hour! We invited three different neighbor groups over for a social distancing happy hour--we started on the driveway til it got a bit too windy, and then we moved into the garage (we moved the cars out). It was great to catch up with everyone and get to know then all a bit more.  Everyone brought their own chairs and beverages, and we all sat six feet apart, and it was fun.

I worked on the storm shawl! It is coming together.

We have some beautiful sunsets!

Two nights ago.

Last night, as clouds rolled in.

I think that is a great idea to have neighbors over! I'm sure it did you all good! The shawl is looking perfect!

Great idea with the neighbors. And if Tim is chopping wood, he might want to carry some water, too.

I would love to see neighbors and talk at a distance. Today we rode our bikes in the countryside.
Oh my it was so cold.
Your shawl is wonderful!!!!!
Im sorry you have a lot of stress right now. HUGS!

These are stressful times, indeed! I'm so glad you're finding some outlets -- and that gorgeous view must fill you up a bit every time you see it. Hang in there. XO

Glad you are finding outlets for the stress. You know you are bored/stressed when a trip to the dump is fun. :) Your shawl is looking great! Happy knitting!
