Papas World – Day # 28 Sheltering in place.

A normal routine?

Yesterday was Thursday – Maundy Thursday.

Which in a normal time – we would of gone to the 7:30 pm. service

at our church – Community Lutheran Church – Sterling Va.

We spent the day doing the small things around the house.

However – you tend to run out of small things!

Puzzle # 5 of six!

I have found myself more and more working on puzzles

Sherry is finishing up the taxes

and I made a call to the maintenance firm who we have a contract through

to set up the semi yearly tune up on the two HVAC systems we have.

On our walk in the warm weather

It is that time of year – and we have it done in the Fall & Spring!

I was able to schedule it for two weeks out !

Hoping by that time – things will loosen up a bit!

However – I did question them on the procedure

and was satisfied that we would be safe with doing this!

Sherry has been sewing Masks and we had to deliver to a friend

I left them on their steps and we had delivered several

to the Church Mail Box in Sterling.

Our Youth director had put out a message

Her grand parents really needed them!

So – Sherry made them and we also dropped them off!

Back in Normal times

to the entrance to our church

By 7:30 PM. we were sitting at the table

Two Candles – a small bottle of wine

Two glasses & the computer tuned into the live stream on face book

A printed off bulletin of the service

and watching as members and friends from back home joined us.

Sherry had put out a invite on her web page

She had also done this for Palm Sunday service.

And – a lot of people joined in!

MorMor & Papa

The Maundy Thursday service ends up with the stripping of the altar

And we have participated in this in the past.

It is something you remember – at least for me.

And for us emotional as well.

What has become abnormal in these days

had a piece of normal inserted back into our lives

as it has been for over 2000 years!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Papas World – Day #26 of shelter in place.

Here we are – social distancing – sheltering in place –

searching google places we can buy food – SENIORS ONLY!

Our new way to ride our bikes
and to take our daily walks
on the 18 miles of trails we have
social distancing
giving wide berths
and crossing streets to avoid
people when possible

What has become a new norm – all in less than a months time!

Our motto has become this.

We have become puzzle experts –

Netflix bingeing on series!

Our way of still practicing
Palm Sunday

Church now is live streamed

and we attend that way.

Our Tower Garden in the garage with grow lights

We will begin to harvest this coming weekend

The other two outside with all the vines and bigger vegetables

are coming along nicely.

Putting puzzles together

My number one rule in puzzles

MUST BE RAVENBURGER puzzles

and 500 or less pieces!

Our table can not handle anymore than that!

Just a short blog on STAYING IN PLACE SHELTERING!
