If there was ever a year that teaches us how to adapt to changing circumstances… hello 2020.
Yesterday, I had just finished up a few hours of work and decided to enjoy the sunshine and meet a friend at a local tap room where they serve authentic German beer from the Hofbräuhaus in Munich. If can’t visit a real biergarten in Europe, I’ll just enjoy the taste of one in my hometown. :)
As I sipped from my stein, my friend told me about how she is spending the next few months virtually walking the Camino de Santiago, her creative way of visualizing a trip abroad and staying fit. As we sat and talked, we got the latest update from our governor that California was going into another round of business closures. Ugh.
Face masks are a way of life now, in my county, you can’t enter any business without them. Since face masks are the new (and often necessary) fashion accessory, I bought myself a few new cute washable ones.
Below are sources for three of my favorite cotton masks:
Well with the number of coronavirus cases rising in our area here in the last few weeks, I’m committed to more days spent at home. I’m bracing myself mentally for a few more months of this but no complaints, the weather is nice and there is plenty to do around my county. Like everyone else, I’m spending a lot of time at home. Lightweight kimono cardigans are now part of my lounging attire. I have two of the ones I linked to, they also make great swim cover-ups.
The only place out of town that I get to visit this month is an overnight at Bass Lake just outside of Yosemite. I’m hoping the National Park stays open since I have a day pass, but who knows these days. The situation changes every week so we just have to make the best of it. How are you all hanging in there? Are you getting out of the house much? Planning any road trips or staying put? How are you keeping busy this summer?
