Hello Everyone! This is my periodic check-in. All continues to be well at our house. My scanning / editing project of old photos [1947-1965] continues, but it's a slow process. I've only scanned 236 photos so far, and there's so many more to do. Since we're going to be on lockdown thru April, I still have a lot more time for the project. I work on them between meal preparations and other household chores. It's a nice diversion, and a fun walk down memory lane.
On Saturday our youngest son, Jeremy, set up a family Zoom conversation via our computers. We talked for over an hour while being able to see each other. It was a fun way to safely reconnect again.
The City of Detroit has been experiencing a high number of Coronavirus cases, but our entire family has been spared so far. I am concerned about our daughter who works in health care at a pediatric clinic attached to a large Detroit hospital. She has contact with nurses and parents of children who have tested positive, but God has protected her so far.
Jeremy videoed them on the porch as they waited for the front door to open. It was so heartwarming to view the video and see how excited they were as they eagerly awaited the door to open revealing their surprise.
They couldn't come inside for a visit, and their outdoor stay was only for about five minutes before making their hour drive back home, but it made our day. We couldn't resist stepping out on the porch to give each of them a very quick hug [and take a picture] before going back into the house.
A neighbor across the street [a retired nurse of Italian descent who never married and lives alone] was obviously taking all this in and felt it necessary to send Jerry a text saying we needed to keep our distance. She had our best interests at heart, but only a parent/grandparent could understand our reaction to quickly hug them. Thank you Jeremy and Samantha for making the mini surprise visit possible.
Be safe and stay well everyone, and God bless!
