Hi friends, so here we go onto week 7. Here in NY, everyone is still home, businesses are still closed (except supermarkets, etc..). Going to a supermarket feels like an out of body experience where everyone almost looks alien like. I don’t think i will ever get used to that. Ever! Finding projects around the house (a good thing) going a bit stir crazy (a bad thing) but there have been some silver linings. Two of my kids who live in the city are staying at our house and we have had so many wonderful dinners sitting around the table talking for an hour sometimes two. I don’t remember the last time that happened, it was wonderful. My youngest son who has always been a foodie, took up cooking (namely Italian) and has been giving my skills a run for their money:) We have sat down to some high quality restaurant quality meals and that has been a real treat. On the downside, I miss seeing friends and family, hate that we have no social fun things to look forward to. Every single thing we were invited to from March to August has been canceled. Weddings, engagement parties, shower, birthdays, summer beach party all wiped out. Bummer but as I always say a small problem to have given the suffering that is going on around us. Those frontliners are the true heroes in all this. Truly remarkable people. And then all those who have passed away and their families, really heartbreaking. Almost too much to handle and think about. All we can do is keep them in our prayers and not lose hope. As far as business goes, we have been able to get into our office/warehouse once a week for a few hours which allows us to keep up with orders but we do appreciate your patience as everything is taking just a bit longer than usual. We are doing our very best and are eager to get back to doing what we love full time but are must abide by what NY State tells us to do. We are lucky that our orders are, nothing short of a miracle, arriving now. Our gift wrap just arrived (sensational) and we will hold our gift wrap sale tomorrow. Our long awaited pastel Staffordshire dogs are arriving either tomorrow or Thursday! So, there are some good things happening too:) We are communicating via email so don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any question or inquiry about an order email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. Here we go with this weeks round of funnies, a little lighthearted humor is a good way to begin a day! __________________________________ And this video is one of the funniest I have seen, could watch this all day long! __________________________________ Hope these gave you a chuckle, it had me laughing all over again putting this post together. Granted this is so far off from my typical post however these are hardly normal times. One day, we will get back to “normal” though it will likely be on with a twist. I hope this finds you doing well and safe. I realize this is quite different for a number of us, depending on where you are in the country but the gravity and seriousness of this is most certainly a nationwide problem and everyone’s actions have a cause and effect for everyone else…we are all in this together and we will come out of it together stronger and hopefully more united! Stay safe! Until next time….
