#FrameItFriday (week 11, season 3)

Well that all escalated pretty quickly now didn't it? I try my best to keep my page a place you can take a peek at and have a chuckle or an oooh or an ahhhh. I think of it as a safe place to come to for a break from the real world. No talk of politics, religion, etc. etc. just photos of stuff I see out there in my travels. You all see it when you drive around and think "hey that's cool" I just take it one step further and grab a photo of it. I like to have people pop round for a nice visit and a respite from all the other stuff we see online. However, one cannot avoid the "elephant in the room".......that Corona Virus thing. Like it or not, the elusive virus is weaving it's way through our lives like a monoxide gas mutating itself along the way. It's affecting every aspect of our lives and it's not going away as quickly as we'd like it to. We joke about it in memes (heck, I just did this morning too)but it's serious.

If you look at the photo accompanying my blog today...I'd like to make a point with that huge stack of wood. It's pretty normal to find stacks like this around people's properties. We stock up for the winter so we don't run out on the coldest night of the year. That's pretty normal. What isn't normal and is completely inconsiderate is people buying toilet paper in quantities like that, making others run around like crazies trying to find a store that has any in stock. That's the tip of the iceberg and I'm stopping right here because already I've taken this too far in my mind.

It sucks, it's scary and who knows when it will end but in the meantime I think it prudent of us all to listen to the folks that are "in the know" and get through it with level heads and be smart and considerate of others. I mean, what example are we for the young people if we teach them that "freaking out and panicking" is the way to work through what life throws at us. Every time we get dealt with a shitty hand we curl up in a ball and bitch and moan or do we gain knowledge by the experts that will help guide us through the mess in one piece with level heads (I keep on using that phrase, sorry).

How about we be grateful to the front line workers who still have to go to work to look after us? I can't forget to mention the ripple effect it has on all types of businesses, events, organizers, fundraisers, etc who are faced with cancelling stuff that they've been planning for months and even years. I'd rather have everyone alive and safe so we can do it another time when this madness ends. Focus on solutions, not the problem. I know, easy to say. I'm far from being qualified to even tackle this issue. All I know is that in our house we will try our best to follow the advice being given by those in the field to protect ourselves by social distancing, washing our hands (like we always do but perhaps more than normal) and maybe pick up a pack or two of toilet paper (not a case).

This is not what I wanted to discuss today but I felt the need to so y'all didn't think I'm oblivious to what's going on out there. I will end by saying this.....wash your hands (for some of this it's a no brainer) and stay healthy!

Peace, love and kumbaya Heather
