I've always been a big fan of nature, but even more so with the pandemic and stay-at-home orders.

I've had one outside visit with my 97 year old grandmother this year. Visits are only M-F in the morning and she's 250 miles away. She doesn't hear well and can't read lips when everyone has a mask on. We've also had some window visits but I see her declining mentally from the lack of human contact. Residents aren't even allowed to visit each other or eat together so she's isolated in her room with only a few contacts with staff on any given day. I'm having enough issues with depression and anxiety, I can't imagine what it's like for her! I want this to be over so that we can enjoy what time we have left with her.

It is a horrible situation @SaraK
My father died without his family in Assisted Living facility and it was just all wrong....
Yes, we can find ways to stay "in touch" but sure would like to have had some warm hugs.

Won't it be wonderful to get out without a mask and go to a movie, restaurant, or any social gathering and not have to worry for the next two weeks if we have caught the virus!

We've been enjoying a lot of walks and hikes outdoors since it seems like the only safe way to get out of the house.

I had started walking my neighborhood, have to start back at it. Was kind of fun checking out everyone's yard art and holiday decorations. Really sorry I didn't get to check everything out for Christmas except those right in my block.

I take lots of walks with my dog and miss having people come up to say hello and pet her. It’s still great to see the flowers starting to come up and watch the change of seasons. No one wears masks while just walking, unless they come close, whereupon they pull a mask from their pocket, so I do get to see people smiling—just from across the street.
