Sitting quietly




 Lately since the beginning of Covid Ive wondered what the world is coming to. What happened to common sense, it doesn't appear to exist anymore. It seems we have a few cases here this week one of which a person apparently was feeling unwell and after attempting to call in sick to work was told by their manager to come in anyway, despite having being tested and awaiting results. Boggles my mind...so with tomorrow being a day off I'm going spend my day in my garden putting new plants in and enjoying the colours and scents. Anything to get away from the world's stupidity.

Kia kaha. Linking up with Skywatch Friday.

Who knows when or if some people start using their brain again...

...many are not taking this health crisis seriously.

People have become far too selfish. We have also become tired of keeping our vigil. People have become tired of staying in. However, I'm in my 80's and I will definitely follow the rules.

That is crazy!! Keep to your garden. You've got such a wonderful variety of plants

Bill said...

There are problems like that here too. People are just not taking caution and still expect to do what they want. Crazy!

Hello, Pretty sky and photo!
I am not sure why people will not follow simple precautions for their health and for others.
It is crazy! Take care, enjoy your day! Have a great weekend ahead!

There is a lot of stupidity out there.

Common sense went out the window years ago when they came out with Health & Safety

Sad that there are so many knuckleheads out there! Working in your garden and enjoying the outdoors is a great idea.

I just don't feel like going out to events as one doesn't know if someone from Auckland (or elsewhere) could be spreading Covid. I am amazed at how few people seem to be using the Covid app to scan in.

It's good to get away from things these days. There is a constant tension in me and without diversions I would go crazy.
That said, if you want to see stupid, come to Oklahoma, USA and I will show you stupid.

In my hometown Lahti, Finland people refuse to wear masks. Many times I´m only one that wears it. Feeling kinda stupid at times. But am so gonna keep it.

Beautiful sky Amy and yes some people are acting so irresponsibly ✨

Wow, perfectly stated! It's something to bothers me too. I'm so glad that my parents carefully taught me and my sisters to think for ourselves and to analyze things. I can still hear him say "use your common sense" and "think about that". I learned to do just that.

that manager should lose his job!
I´m glad you have your garden to rest in. :)

On the spot

I've noticed all around the West Coast these little dairies/shops are dotted in some of the smaller towns. Can't call them a Four Sq...
