Lockdown day seven

Church by Zoom for the first time today, and it was odd and wonderful and distant and intimate all at once. The pretty background music? Agonizingly distorted for us, wonderful for someone else, yay for the chat function on the side–it got turned off.

I wished out loud for closed captions and someone said, There’s got to be a way to do that. Someone else said, That’s okay, I’ll type them! And he did. Wow. (So then I lean forward to read the words I miss and I look way weird to the camera’s eye.) We’re getting the hang of this.

Meantime, Lillian is somehow seven months old come the morning and we know how blessed we are to have her.

(p.s. Nope, I didn’t: I bought the owl hat at a craft fair last Fall.)

I have to keep reminding myself about how much worse others have had it, and get back to some gratitude. My husband and I were on lockdown before the order came, so it’s been a long haul already. We can all do this…survive this. What a strange world it is now.

Happy 7 months to Lillian! Yes, the learning is happening. I’m learning how to do Google Hangout meetings for work. And have gotten back into baking bread as that is still scarce here, or we just don’t shop early enough. Making do with what we have, but it’s no real sacrifice yet. We’re OK, and glad you are, too.

Happy 7th monthversary, Lillian!

Also baking bread, banana bread, but it counts, right? 🙂

Oh, how cute is she! I could look at that face all day.

and I keep thinking how much easier I have it, with adult children in the house who can run the errands – as they shop for several of our neighbors as well as us.

Lillian is a real cutie!
