So far so good

So far so good. David and I are not sick with the coronavirus. Because I have a weak immune system, I have been staying home, while David shops periodically at Sack n Save during senior hour from 6 to 7 a.m. on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. He avoids Target and Costco, where there are too many shoppers.

And, yes, he wears a mask and gloves at the store. Lisa sent us disposable masks:

Surprisingly, I don’t mind staying home and having David as my sole companion. I think it’s because I tend to be an introvert.

I try to cook at home as much as possible, looking for new recipes online. Now and then, we buy take-out food from Thai Bistro:

This is take-out food from Thai Bistro:

Summer Rolls with peanut sauce:

Appetizer combo (Spring rolls, fried calamari, chicken satay, and fish patties with peanut sauce and sweet-sour sauce with sliced cucumber):

Pad Thai Beef:

Somehow, we are doing well during this crisis, mainly because we have each other.

    I cannot emphasize enough – WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER! These last weeks have been hell for us. But our undying love for each other has enabled us to endure. I am over 71 years old, but I have never experienced anything like this pandemic. The saying is that war is hell, but so is COVID-19!

    There is a small risk from buying take away food, but enjoy and don’t worry too much. You are cautious and will be fine.

    …keep doing what you are doing.

    The take away meals look delicious. Sometimes, we too have take away meals. Stay safe.

  5. AC Says:

    Glad you are doing well.

  6. DJan Says:

    I wish I could get used to not having any place to go. I am walking a little every day, but that’s about it. It’s a very hard time, but David is right: we are all in this together.

  7. Christine Says:

    The food looks amazing. Stay safe both of you.

  8. Arkansas Patti Says:

    Wow, now I wish we had some place besides the fast food places to go. Sure looks good.

    Things are pretty much as usual for us, since we have always been more stay at home people. I have always cooked dinner almost every day. It would be nice to go out and grab a burger now and then, and I just miss the freedom of going wherever I want to. Everything has to be so well thought out now. Traffic is easy now, though!

    I have been a stay at home for the most part. i did have to go to get a prescription filled and eventually I will need another trip to the grocery. Yesterday I made masks. Today I will have time with a writing group on Zoom. I have limited my watching/reading of the news to 30 minutes per day. and that alone has helped tremendously as far as staying sane and out of panic mode.

    Glad you are managing well with staying home. I don’t like it, but have no chance. Your food looks great, too. I made vegetable soup with noodles today, it was good. Stay safe, vALERIE

  12. Lois Evensen Says:

    Yes, having each other is the key for us, too. Our daughter is doing the shopping. We’ll make it through this.

    Glad you are both safe and appreciate each other!

  14. Elephant's Child Says:

    I am glad that you are both safe and well – and have each other for company and support.

  15. Tom at Sightings Says:

    I’m very grateful that we have each other, too … altho’ we do spend quite a bit of time on our own every day so we don’t wear our our welcome!

    The take-out looks delicious. We ordered from our local Thai place a couple of weeks ago but haven’t done it since. We have just had our first grocery order delivered to our door, no people contact. We are grateful to have each other but I worry about people who are on their own. Thank goodness for Skype and Facebook. So important to keep in touch. I am happy that you are both keeping healthy and well and wish you continued good health.

  17. Lakshmi Bhat Says:

    The whole world is together. This too shall pass. I am glad both of you are fine. Regards.

  18. Far Side Says:

    I have never tried Thai food, we mostly eat at home especially during this virus panic. Good idea to wear a mask:)

  19. dkzody Says:

    Wow, that food looks very good. We haven’t done any takeout since the shelter-in-place took effect. We did get a pizza the week before the shutdown and may do that again.

    We are planning to order a takeout lunch on Sunday as it would have been our church’s quarterly dine-out and the restaurant makes a special effort for our large group. This time, we’ll order the food, but eat at home, by ourselves.
