Quarantined Again and Again

Yesterday I drove MeMa over to the hospital to get her pre-surgery Covid test which went off with out a care. She was in and out in record time, then it was back home for the two of us so that we could both quarantine until she had surgery. At 9:45 PM we received a phone call telling her that the Covid test was contaminated and that she would have to go in first thing this morning and have another test. It was all very frustrating because when we got there ten minutes early there was already a line. Forty-five minutes later we were heading back home. We are now quarantined until surgery day, the 28th. 
We went out into the garden where life is just the two of us, my love and I. She went with clippers in hand into her picking garden as I surveyed the debris that last nights heavy rain knocked out of the redwood tree and covered all the gravel pathways which I had just cleaned after the big wind event. I was just about to feed the Koi when I noticed all the redwood floating so I cleaned that out before feeding Athena and her little companions. By time I had finished MeMa came down the steps from picking garden struggling with a large pale of fresh picked flowers for the house. I left the pathways untouched, the redwood will keep till another day.

  1. Nature has a lot of time on her hands.

  2. Sorry to read about the CORONA dilemma, but mostly it's imperative that MeMa stays safe, and well enough to undergo her surgery.
    I'm keeping you both in my thoughts and prayers.

    1. Thanks Jo, she is staying safe. Thank you for the prayers.

  3. How frustrating to have to go back for yet another test. But on the flipside, how wonderful to have a peaceful place to relax, a true garden sanctuary - I'm just sorry Mother Nature came and messed it up a bit!

    Take care, and continued prayers for good health and strength!

  4. How frustrating to need a second test. Would have liked to see the flowers Mema had picked. Good wishes for tomorrow (today here)

  5. Thank you Susan, sorry I forgot to take photos of all the flowers. So much going on here.

  6. Hopefully the surgery goes well. It's getting to that time of year when there always seems to be some sort of mess in need of clearing up.
