#WeekendCoffeeShare (September 20, 2020)

It’s Sunday and I want to tell you more about my life right now. For this reason, I’m joining in with #WeekendCoffeeShare. The image above is taken on a bridge over the local channel. I’m not there right now and in fact did not go out for a walk today at all. I did drink coffee. And pure green tea – not the matcha powder type. If you want any, you can grab some. There’s also cold water in the fridge. Let’s have a drink and let’s catch up.

If we were having coffee, firstly I’d share that it was my and my husband’s ninth wedding anniversary yesterday. I wasn’t able to visit him though, because I have a cold. At first I wasn’t sure whether just a cold means I need to stay home, but my husband sent me the COVID-19 FAQ from the health authorities that said I had to. Strangely, a staff who has a cold slightly milder than mine, was working this morning anyway.

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I did send my husband a card with a photo of me in it. He appreciated it.

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I just got interrupted while writing this post by a staff to tell me several other clients show cold symptoms. I already knew this, but it means we’re from now on being cared for in our rooms. We’ll get tested for COVID-19 as soon as possible, maybe today but I don’t think so.

If we were having coffee, I’d share that I am loving learning more about essential oils and soap making. I downloaded three books on the topic of essential oils from Bookshare yesterday. Of course, since I don’t have a microwave or stove in my room, I won’t be able to make soap while we’re still being isolated. However, I do have my essential oil diffuser and oils here, so I can make my own diffuser blends.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I requested my staff bring me some coffee cups so that I can make Senseo coffee in my room. I mean, staff do come here to deliver our meals and help us whenever we need it, but they do need to wear protective clothing when entering our rooms. I think that’d be a bit annoying for them if they had to bring me coffee.

What else is new? A lot really, but all seems futile now that we’re in room quarantine. For those who pray or send positive vibes, do get those prayers/healing vibes/etc. coming our way.

What have you been up to lately?

    1. Thank you. We’ll all get tested for COVID-19 tomorrow morning and, if our tests come back negative, I will most likely be allowed to visit my husband next week. At least if I’m symptom-free by then.


  1. Hi Astrid. I think you and your husband have figured out this need to be separated and handle it pretty good. You both have had many good visits and will again when it’s extra safe again. The date is not very important. But that you do celebrate your love is — and you do that. Just spend some time thinking how you’ll make the best of your next opportunity and then your next. . . etc.

    And I’m always willing to send up prayers for anyone who asks, especially a friend.

    1. Thanks so very much! We’ll get tested for the coronavirus in the morning and it’s going to take 6-48 hours before we hear the results. Hopefully if we’re all negative, room-based isolation will be lifted.


  2. Sorry about your cold AND your quarantine, but understand why you need to be isolated. Hopefully it will be over soon with everyone feeling better. At least you can blog from your room!
    I love green tea and drink a bag every day. Cheers and happy anniversary!

  3. I hope you feel better. My daughter is having a cold as well. I’ve been staying at home from work since Monday afternoon last week, to be with her. I was hoping to be able to go back today, but a nurse told me to stay at home two more days. My daughter is feeling a lot better, and if it wasn’t for the big bad virus she would be back in school. On a positive note she gets two extra days to get her strength back. I really hope you feel better soon. Thank you for the coffee.

  4. How yucky that you’ve got a cold just now, so sorry you couldn’t celebrate your anniversary properly. And sounds very intense with more clients and staff as well also having colds, I hope even more people won’t be getting sick. Hope the quarantine will be manageable for all of you. I’m glad you can make coffee in your room. 🙂
    Will be praying a lot. 🙂
