|front window Sunday morning|
I was enjoying the sunny view from my front window this morning. Actually I was watching a little green lizard sun himself on one of the outside bushes. You can't see him, but thought I'd share the view. The sign at the top of the window says "Welcome" with the picture of a black cat etched on it.
This is another view of our backyard taken a few days ago from the kitchen. It was in the evening when the sun and shade made the yard so appealing. There's a black feral cat sitting out there to the right.

I think the younger generation (50 and under) find this lock-down more difficult than us (baby boomers plus) for many reasons. They are more locked in to their get out, eat out, etc. habits, and they more than likely need to work to pay for groceries, etc., And they have young children in the home all day with them who need to be home-schooled! I can see how difficult it must be for them.
We (retirees) may have more vulnerability due to age and underlying conditions (although I think all ages seem to be vulnerable), but we have learned to live on a fixed income and stay home for the most part. We miss being around family... and I really miss hugs, but these are small sacrifices to make for everyone's safety.
I know that some are protesting for things to open up and I understand that they need their jobs to pay for food, rent, etc. for their families. But I guess I don't understand how their families will survive if these same workers contact the virus and die... or bring it home to their children.
This pandemic is so widespread that I'm not sure there is a right answer. Guess we must all do what we think is best.
This is a lacy baby blanket that I started working on a while back... and need to finish it.
This is a small one I finished.
And this is another that is heavier and will be larger (more of a crib bedspread) - but using the same yarn and a single crochet stitch.
