US Infected: 586,941 Dallas Infected: 2,250 Texas Deaths: 480

In the past 24 hours, over 200 Texans have died. That is a huge jump in deaths. It’s quite disturbing to think of so much loss of life.

Today I took some advise a friend of mine posted on Facebook. The post read as follows:

Master, how can I face isolation?

-Clean your house. Thoroughly. In every corner.
Even the ones you never felt like, the courage and the patience to play.
Make your house bright and well cared for. It removes dust, cobwebs, impurities. Even the most hidden.
Your house represents you: if you take care of it, you also take care of yourself.
-Master but the time is long.
After taking care of me through my house, how can I live the isolation?
-Fix what can be fixed and remove what you no longer need.
Dedicate yourself to the patchwork, embroider the starts of your pants, sew well the frayed edges of your dresses, restore a piece of furniture, repair everything worth repairing.
The rest, throw it away. With gratitude.
And with the awareness that its cycle has ended.
Fixing and removing outside of yourself allows you to fix or remove what’s inside of you.
-Master and then what?
What can I do all the time alone?

Even a seed in a vase.
Take care of a plant, water it every day, talk to it, give it a name, remove the dry leaves and weeds that can suffocate it and steal precious vital energy.
It is a way of caring for your inner seeds, your desires, your intentions, your ideals.
-Master and if the void comes to visit me? … If fear of illness and death come?
-Talk to them.
Prepare the table for them too, reserve a place for each of your fears.
Invite them to dinner with you. And ask them why they came from so far to your house. What message do they want to bring you.
What do they want to communicate to you.
-Master, I don’t think I can do this …
-It is not isolation your problem, but the fear of facing your inner dragons Those that you always wanted to get away from you. Now you can’t run away.
Look them in the eyes, listen to them and you will discover that they put you against the wall.
They’ve isolated you so they can talk to you.
Like the seeds that can only sprout if they are alone.

So today I started the cleaning. Every corner. I vacuumed until the vacuum ran out of charge. I vacuumed under every piece of furniture. I vacuumed under cabinets and in the pantry. It was a lot of space to vacuum, but I worked at it and it felt so good to get it done and done well. Then, I sat down and helped Sunshine with some schoolwork and made lunch.

After lunch, I intended to go out and get the mail, but the UPS truck was in front of my house, so I waited for him to finish before I went out. While I was waiting, I was looking out my dining room window, and noticed a little black spider was busy building a web between two of my bushes. I watched the spider working away, and suddenly a gecko leaped off of one of the bushes and flew across in front of my face. He missed the spider by a hair and landed on one of the lower bushes. The shock of the lizard flying across had me laughing, and I continued to watch. The little gecko seemed disappointed that he’d missed his lunch, and he was watching the spider and trying to figure out how to get back up to him. The gecko was oddly colored. He was a brilliant green with a brown stripe running down his back like a branch. I knew they could camouflage and change from green to brown, but I’d never seen one camouflaged so perfectly before! As I stood there, I slowly came to realize that the UPS truck was long gone, and had it been any other day, I would have never been standing there and gazing out the window to see this beautiful little show of nature. It really made me thankful for the fact that life has slowed down so much.

For dinner, it was the most wonderful burgers! I was really craving the onion burgers that Tucker’s in Oklahoma makes. So I made my own, and served them with avocado and all the fixin’s. So yummy! It was a good thing I found some ground beef, because I had thought we were all out.

The temperature dropped down into the 30’s overnight, so it was quite chilly today. It’s still quite cold out. Hard to believe it was 100 just a few days ago! Texas in the spring…sheesh!

Now for some “Merlin” and hot tea!
