Pandemic-fatigue | Weekly Snapshot

It got busy this week! Lots going on at home, work, and otherwise as well.  Life My daughter's school decided to close on Friday, along with several other schools in the area, with some being closed from Thursday. Not enough staff. The school had been on a mask mandate since the beginning of the pandemic, dropping it only for one week when the pandemic had appeared to have stabilized last year. And yet, they dropped the mandate completely at the beginning of this year, when cases were exponentially rising, only to bring it back again starting next week. I've gone from being very annoyed to angry to feeling fatigue in these first two weeks already. I won't lie - we all mask around here and try to avoid going where we don't have a need to be in, and still, we are not taking anything close to the extreme precaution we all took at the beginning of the pandemic. I cannot and don't want to keep my kids home - I have at least that much faith in the schools' precautions

The Sunday Salon: Spring cleaning and Spring decor

The Sunday 
Salon.com

Good morning, Saloners! Not too early in the morning now, but I'm just sitting with my tall cup of tea and breakfast to start my day. The husband left early this morning to attend a training in Dallas, and he won't be back until next week Sunday. Both the dog and I are missing him already - the dog probably more because she doesn't know why her pack member left her, lol.

I've sort of tasked myself to do some Spring cleaning and Spring decor this week. We finally bought bookshelves and a new desk for myself for our office room. It's been sidelined for a long time and finally I managed to get some great deals this week. I'm now penning down ideas to decorate this room and the master bedroom so I expect more shopping on the cards this week.

It has been a very busy at work this week that I had to put in some overtime to get things completed. We are fast approaching our big date for releasing the product we've been working on for three years now. It's a very exciting time for us and that's partly the reason why I have been overclocking this week. So not a big deal, but I definitely hope to stick to my salaried hours this week. Moreover, we are expecting some wet and icy weather tonight and tomorrow morning, This coming after a brief spell of what summer could be like is a little torturing. People were actually outside in shorts and tanks yesterday and the icecream parlors were seeing a lot of customers. Now tomorrow, they're going to be back in gray jackets.

Rest of the day today, I'm hoping to browse around Pinterest and Etsy, and when I'm bored, read the very delightful Frangipani by CĂ©lestine Hitiura Vaite, set in Tahiti. I've also been knitting a lacy shawl for Spring that's going slow, so I may spend some more time on it.

I hope you enjoy your time alone and have a good time decorating. I really want a new desk and bookshelves, but I'm waiting until the next time we move to make that investment... just settling with what I have for now.

I need a new bookshelf for an area in my living room. There isn't one there currently but I was thinking of a low, long one for behind the soft.


The weather here was glorious this past weekend but my twelve hours at the track meet, sitting and working in full sun was too much for me! I am still recovering but I didn't get burned which is odd because I always do.

Good luck with your cleaning/decorating, spring time always makes me want to do that too!
Looking forward to your thoughts on Frangipani, I've wanted to read it for a while.

Interesting to see that you were reading "Frangipani" since I just finished "The Frangipani Hotel." Never even heard that word before and suddenly there are two books out with it in the title.
