The Week In Seven Photos

Earlier in the week I read an article about the new pandemic-era accessory of bracelets that signal your social distancing boundaries. Event hosts are offering green, yellow or red wristbands to let people know if they can come in for a hug or not. I always thought over my lifetime that my body language, the expression on my face or the strong force field surrounding my bubble was enough, but I guess I better order a case of red bracelets so there’s no confusion about this huggy business.

There also have been many articles about anxiety for those reentering society and while I’ve not noticed any increase in my anxiety level, I do occasionally feel a tad crowded when I notice flowers blooming too close together,

birds landing too close,

the thought of someone sharing my chocolate chip dip,

or seeing swimming docks that are too close together.

Harper’s absolutely exhausted from trying to figure out who she’s allowed to visit on our walks since the dogs have not begun wearing their boundary collars

and does it look like the tomatoes are being mobbed by the basil on my Margherita Pizza?!?!

  1. Marvelous photos as always. πŸ˜€
    And I’ve not heard about these colour-coded social distancing bracelets!
    Like you, for sure I thought the strong force field round my bubble would be enough! πŸ˜€

    1. Thank you!!😁 Love to keep up with the latest trends so I can discover more and more how out of touch I am with society after years behind my strong force field bubble.😁

  3. After over a year of avoiding people indoors and being careful, it has been hard for some people to figure out what to do now that the vaccines seem to be doing their job. This week, Clif and I stopped wearing our masks when we went into stores. Other people are still wearing them, and we both think that people should continue to wear them until they feel comfortable going without. But, just to be on the safe side, we ordered another package of K95 masks. Just in case.

    1. I continue to be amazed at the different trends that have developed throughout the pandemic and all I have learned during these unprecedented times. I’m happy to keep my Baby Yoda masks while everything continues to change rapidly.πŸ™‚

  7. Great post! So much post-pandemic social anxiety on the horizon. Red bracelets for me, please…
    Have a great weekend! (I’ll be continuing to sulk about Ancelotti jumping off the Everton express. How could he?!)

    1. Thank you!!😁 I continue to be surprised by the daily pandemic news and trends to the point that I’m behind on sports news and had to read about Ancelotti returning to Real Madrid. I hope the Euro 2020 can keep you a little distracted from the Everton news and I’ve already told Harper she’s getting a big hug if the Islanders win the Stanley Cup!🐾😁

  8. I ‘m with you on the red bracelet thing , not actually heard of that. I haven’t adjusted to society yet, even though I have had both jabs and now own a special mask exempt badge on a lanyard. Social anxiety is still going to be hard to get over. Lovely set of pics as ever.

    1. Thank you!πŸ™‚ After all these lifestyle changes this last year I’ve discovered a new layer to my introvert attitude and I’m not any any hurry to rush back out into society and I’ve been surprised that I’m not missing some things from my old normal.πŸ™‚
