Sunday, April 5, 2020 through Thursday, April 9, 2020
Palm Sunday and we watched Mass on my phone being said at St. Anne's Catholic Church in Escanaba. It is nice to be able to watch/attend at a familiar place but strange not to be physically there on Palm Sunday and I have a feeling not being there on Easter is going to really be strange. It is what it is but strange just the same.
We have been playing cards, Gin Rummy to be exact. It is a card game we have played a lot of over the years especially at night when we were camping. I remember times when we were in our travel trailer with our kids when throughout the day I would have a game going with each of them. Lots of nice memories.
Wednesday was a really exciting day we went to the Walmart in Corinth and did a grocery pickup. Actually, we were very happy with how that turned out. The young lady who brought out the groceries was efficient and polite. Plus, who ever picked our groceries did a good job picking out the fresh produce. I know next time it could be a completely different outcome but for know we are pleased and will continue to use this service for the foreseeable future. We have an order in at Kroger we will pick up on Monday, fingers crossed it goes just as well.
So what do you do when you cannot see your grandchildren or children in person? One of the things we use is a video chat on Facebook Messenger. These last few weeks we have been using it more then usual and there is a button for filters that our grandchildren love to use. Below are some of the pictures I snapped in the last week or so. I am sure there will be more in the weeks to come.
|We were both angels and before I could snap the picture...lol|
Love these little faces.

|Sometimes I am not sure who we were talking to.|

We are living our days in the quietness of this park. Every time we hear the number of deaths within our own country and the world it is a moment of sadness. It is a scary time and then we read of all those that have recovered and we know there is hope. We think of our friends in our country and to the north in Canada and hope you are all staying healthy. You are in our prayers.
We are very grateful to know, as I write this, our family is doing well and staying healthy. We thank God and pray he will continue to bless them with good health.
It seems strange to say but we would describe our days as good. We hope you can say the same.
We are glad you stopped by!
If you have time to leave a comment we would enjoy hearing from you.
As you are, we to are safe and healthy. Strange times for sure. Family and friends both south and north are in our prayers daily also. Keep staying safe and healthy.ReplyDelete
You are right, Bill, definitely strange times. You and Patsy do the same, stay safe and healthy.Delete
Those pictures are the cutest!!! I've tried having the store fill my order, but I have to wait 7 days before picking it up. It's easier to go to the store and be out in fifteen minutes.ReplyDelete
Thank you, we may be slightly prejudice, lol, but we think, like most grandparents, our little grandkids are cuties.Delete
I love the fun pictures with the grandchildren! We'll have to look for that filter button, we aren't as tekky as you are! :)ReplyDelete
Prayers out to everyone from here as well. My nightly prayer gets longer and longer. Stay well!
I want to take credit but our grandkids found those filters a couple of years ago...:) I am impressed I figured out how to take pictures...LOLDelete
You and Bill stay well, also.
Lots of memories being made with those pictures.ReplyDelete
Glad you and your family are staying safe from this Virus.
Be Safe and Enjoy the Isolation.
It's about time.
Thank you, Rick, hope you, Kathy and your family are staying well, also.Delete
It will be strange not to go to mass on Easter Sunday with our daughter and family. We have also been using FaceTime to keep in touch with our children and grandchildren and it can be very entertaining ... you have some great pictures of your family having fun :-) Stay safe!ReplyDelete
I agree it is strange not going to Mass on Easter.Delete
It is nice being able to at least see family video chatting hope it changes soon though and we are back in Michigan and can get real live hugs. Take care and stay healthy.
Those are some funny pictures for sure! Guess it keeps them entertained LOL. Your tree is greening out nicely! It'll be giving you shade before it's time for you to leave!ReplyDelete
It does seem to keep them entertained. I was chatting with Adelaide this morning and she was telling me what one I should put on...lolDelete
Hopefully, it does produce shade. Take care.
