It’s day one in every of “lockdown” right here in Toronto.  Not fairly as scary as the primary time – I really feel like everyone knows the best way to to it now. We’re not scrambling round making an attempt to determine the way you’re presupposed to get issues or what you must wipe down or making an attempt to determine masks. The retailers are all arrange for curbside pickup and supply, we’ve bought our PPE sorted, and apart from widening our bubble to incorporate our instant household (after which shrinking it once more just a few months later, as instructed) Joe and I’ve just about saved ourselves in lockdown the entire time anyway.  Joe’s nonetheless grocery searching for his mother and father and others as wanted, and we’ve saved it to as soon as per week since mid March, so we’re all sorted there. It’s not so laborious to solely go away the home as soon as per week for procuring in the event you’ve been working towards for therefore lengthy. I haven’t been in a grocery retailer in eight months, and our checklist of shut contacts for per week could be counted on one hand, and that’s in the event you put the each of us collectively.  (And also you’ll have fingers left over.)  This lockdown, being requested to make our world somewhat smaller, it isn’t actually that totally different from what we had been already in a position to do.

I’ve been knitting a lot of tiny issues of late, wee mice and minuscule hats (the skilled amongst you’ll guess why, after all) and mittens for Elliot and…

I’ve been discovering it slightly satisfying, and it’s solely simply occurred to me at present why that may be.  There’s a sure resonance isn’t there? My world has been so very small for nearly a 12 months that knitting small issues simply looks like a superb match.

As we begin this new part, one which we’re being instructed is no less than 28 days, I’m making an attempt to not panic. A part of me is so unhappy. What in regards to the gingerbread get together? What about Solstice… What about Christmas? Then I keep in mind that we couldn’t have our typical Thanksgiving both, and someway all of us survived that. I’m making an attempt not too look to far forward proper now. A number of days on the most, and worrying nearly small issues.

I’m going to attempt to be right here a bit extra proper now (no less than within the subsequent few days) however I’m being light with myself, and maintaining expectations low. It’s the covid-times. Who is aware of what’s going to occur subsequent. Besides that I’m most likely going to knit this.
