Village Antiques Mall opened up June 1st after 2 1/2 months of being closed (Covid) and I have worked many hours to get stock ready and into my booths there.
The Mall followed the spacing, number, hand cleaning and masks rules, the direction to walk and the divided space for coming in and checking out. 30 people were allowed at any one time to shop. I haven't cleaned or dusted this month at my booth but I have added some great stock.
Gardening at home? Well, since it has rained a few days each week I didn't have to water. I also did not weed. DGS mowed the lawn two (or was it three times) this month and did a bit of weed-eating. I can see what needs to be done but I have not had the energy/time to take care of more than the basics.
Mostly I kept up the laundry, dishwasher and tidying, did meals, grocery shopping twice a week - with a list, quickly, wearing a mask and washing hands/cleaning hands before and after shopping and as soon as I got home. Washed fruit and vegetables.
Taxes were filed on time (with the extension thank goodness in place).
I have been writing up stock daily, packing and taking it over to my booths, arriving 9 am each morning and leaving for home at 9:55 before customers come into the Village Antiques Mall. I wear a mask when anyone is within sight.
I tie all necessary shopping to after the stocking, Some days I am exhausted. Hand sanitize or wash multiple times each day, especially when leaving one place to head for another and repeat. Keep hand sanitizer in the car and use it frequently - when getting in, leaving, getting back in and repeat.
I suspect I am like many who have so much work that must be done, work that should be done and little energy/time left for much else. I notice I rest more in the afternoon, stay awake too late at night, wake up several times each night and feel tired most of the time.
I have been re-reading favourite books, sometimes listen to music, sometimes tell my brain that I will NOT think about what CAN happen if COVID starts the 2nd go round.
My job is to follow the safety rules - keep distance, wear a mask, wash my hands and stay home if not feeling well. I also will not gather in small groups period. Keeping my family safe. Keep safe.
Thanks, always, for visiting.
