This Week...Step By Step

 

It may not seem like it but step by step...day by day, we’re pushing through to where we hope to be.

If you’re going through hell, keep going. Winston Churchill



Our area had sun, clouds, rain, cool temps, and even warmer temps. Onalaska, TX-75 miles north of Houston suffered a devastating tornado that sadly killed 3 people. 

 

At times it seems that people have settled into this new way of living our lives. Perhaps we have acquiesced to what we collectively need to do to. 

 

 

Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success.  Edward Everett Hale

 

As of Monday (April 27th), Harris County residents are required to wear some kind of face-covering or face a possible $1,000 fine. Many already wear them when going into the market or drugstore.

Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings. William Arthur Ward



Times being what they are, there is a lawsuit being filed against this. Houston’s mayor has taken a more gentle approach to handling this...suggesting his officers will remind those without masks to wear them, at the same time, offering them free masks.

I had a few highlights this week… my niece Stephanie dropped off homemade brownies so I got to wave at her, her husband, and their son.

 

The bond that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy in each other's life. Richard Bach

And the next day, my other niece Jennifer dropped off a favorite decadent treat...donuts from Shipleys. So I was able to send air kisses and hugs to her two sons and my mini-me. 

 

Lemonade out of lemons folks!

Have a wonderful weekend being physically

distanced

 and socially together!

I got to enjoy my grand daughter this morning virtually as she was playing with some new textures, always enjoy seeing videos of her as she grows, she is 10 months old today. Glad you got to enjoy your family this week, for now air hugs are better than no hugs.

Well I do believe many MANY folks around the country are ready to resume their lives as they prefer. And that will happen little by little or maybe even more. Great quotes! Love this one as moving forward is a good move....

I have to say this is really taking a toll on me Kathy Streib. I have had a rough time. Now just trying to focus on being ready when it ends and people start listingn again. Usually if i have a hard day... the beach is my cure, walking on it, or sitting on the rocks...but they closed the beach. I hope things are well with you and your family.

Hi Grant Schneider we had temps near 90 this week!!!

Barbara Todaro 60 is still cool to me!  But I'll bet you got a lot of lawn work done today. 

Nina Hollander we'll get there!  One day at a time.

Donald Urschalitz you've got the right idea!  

Kat Palmiotti I was thinking about that the other day when it was overcast for what seems like day after day after day!!!

Michael Jacobs I don't mind the gentle approach until they start releasing people from jail.

Hi Myrl Jeffcoat Best choice is to keep going!!!  and thank you for the feature in your group. 

Ron and Alexandra Seigel Thank you so much!!!  Hope you enjoyed the beach. 

I agree Brian England I know that we're all going to be more careful about keeping our hands washed and away from our faces.

OMG Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD That is the funniest story I've heard! I had to share it with Larry and I think he's afraid to use Zoom now!!!!

Nick Vandekar, 610-203-4543 so glad you got to see your granddaughter!  They grow up so quickly thank goodness there are ways to keep in touch, like Facetime or even driving by and waving from a distance.

Roy Kelley I'm glad that you and Chef Dolores are staying in. We did make a Home Depot trip for some items we needed and still receive our groceries via curbside delivery. 

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD our cardiologist back in Delray is so cute I would have been mortified if he saw me like that.

Anna Banana Kruchten Arizona's Top Banana! we're all getting antsy here. What I don't understand is why if the grocery stores, drug stores, hardware stores and CBD stores can be open, the other retail stores can't. They have fewer people in per square feet than a grocery store.

Morning Kathy.

Thankfully, we have no such rules.  However, if you pay attention most do wear those masks.  The 6' rule is followed.
