A Sign of the Times

   Quite a changed experience at the grocery store today - I had to go out to deposit a cheque so stopped by on my way home. First, there was a line up outside, one person out, one person in. I only had to wait about ten minutes and the sun was shining so I didn't mind. 

   The store was blissfully empty and I whizzed around and picked up everything I needed. I kept my gloves on and was careful to avoid other shoppers. At the checkout everyone stood well over a metre apart and there was a plexiglass screen between the customer and the cashier - quite rightly so. Only one spot for cash, they are encouraging everyone to use plastic, which I usually do anyway. The line at the cash checkout was very long. So, I think I managed to avoid picking up any germs.

   Still nice this afternoon so I had another long walk - lots of others doing the same but we all were careful to avoid getting too close. The next few days are forecast to be a bit miserable so I will be happy to stay indoors. Progress on the jigsaw puzzle but I am having to use the "try every piece" method which is very tedious!

Almost done!

   One other thing, I used the drive through ATM to deposit my cheque but it wouldn't work while I was wearing my gloves - had to touch the buttons with my bare fingers. Ughh!!

  1. A pain about the ATM but I'm sure it will be OK. I bet you wiped your fingers straight away afterwards.

  2. It sounds like the shopping experience was quite stress free. After the mad scenes here in recent weeks it would be good to see the same thing in our supermarkets. Glad you were able to get out walking. It makes a big difference doesn't it?

    1. I took a break today (worked out indoors) but I have been walking most days.

  3. That looks like quite a detailed puzzle. Sistine Chapel? Hopefully all the panic shopping is over & people realize there is enough if shared accordingly. Yes to walks outside or as I'm calling them my sanity strolls.

  4. I used my keys on the ATM yesterday. I also did my first cheque deposit on my phone a month ago.

    1. That's brilliant! Why didn't I think of that? I don't have a smart phone so still have to use the ATM.
