Day 39 of Sheltering in Place here in Panama City Beach, FL. This morning’s statistics for COVID-19 for Bay County are 57 confirmed cases and 2 deaths and for Florida 27,058 cases and 823 deaths. There have been protests around the country with people not wearing masks and not abiding by social distancing. They want the restrictions lifted in their states. I personally think they are being very selfish, but I do understand their frustration. I think they are being selfish in the fact that they run the risk of contracting the virus or spreading the virus and eventually taxing health care workers’ ability to take care of the sick.
We had an intense thunderstorm roll through here about 3:30 am. Though I could not see the storm I laid in bed imagining the cooler air hitting the humid warm air and the clash between the two. Luckily I was able to get back to sleep. I woke up to a gorgeous day, which lifted my spirits and I was back at it.
I put together the last 3 drawers of the infamous cart, without their missing fronts. I added three Dollar Tree plastic containers. I think it looks ok and at least it is functional. Then I filled it up with metal, long pieces in the side and cut up pieces in the containers.
I almost have all my jewelry supplies moved to the shed. The only things remaining are what was on and in the Harbor Freight workbench. Tomorrow I hope to empty it and see it I can move the workbench myself. I also have most of my fabric and sewing things moved into the old studio soon to be sewing room. I have a chester drawers and the sewing table to move into that room. But first I have to empty the hallway of all the art and paper supplies, which go into the office, genealogy and art room. Before I can do that, I have to move stuff around in that room. But progress has been made.
I wonder how I would have spent my time these last 39 days, if I did not have this moving into my shed and changing the function of two of the rooms in my house to occupy me.
