I've left the house only two times in the last nine days. When they closed our church I decided to just stay in and try to limit my interaction with others. Well, on Saturday we decided to go on a mini road trip. There is a scenic road called Chuckanut Drive that goes up into Northern WA and overlooks the San Juan Islands. The weather was stunning this weekend so we decided to take a short drive. It was gorgeous!
We found an empty viewpoint so we jumped out to take a few pictures. It felt so good to be outside and looking at something besides our yard.
Beth took this of me and my super skinny husband!

We decided to stop at a local burger sho and the food was really good! It was a walk up so we drove to an empty parking lot and ate in our car. Then it was onto the freeway for the drive home.
After a few minutes we heard something that sounded like a low-flying plane. Then Chuck noticed the 'low tire pressure' light on the dashboard and sure enough we had a flat! We couldn't remember the last time we'd had a flat tire! And we were in an area where the speed limit was 70 so of course people were going closer to 80, they were flying by us! Chuck jacked up the car and took off the lug nuts but still the tire wouldn't come off! It took our roadside assistance about an hour to get there and the young kid (they get younger every year!) had it done and we were on our way in about 5 minutes after he got there! What an adventure!
Diana went out hiking last weekend. She and P didn't see too many people out where they were in Pennsylvania!
Sharaya has had a nasty cough so she called her doctor. She had a drive through appointment and they came to her car in full gear. She doesn't have Covid-19, thank goodness. However she does have bronchitis so now she's on antibiotics. Thankfully it's nothing too serious.
Washington State is an epicenter for this coronavirus and our hospitals are overwhelmed with patients. We recently set up two giant medical tents at a ball field just a couple of miles from our house. Just helping to reduce the amount of people coming and going from our hospitals. They built a second one next to this.
There was an older gentleman at our church who got the virus and we found out he passed away on Friday. I heard his wife didn't get to say good bye. It absolutely breaks my heart!
All of our schools and restaurants are closed. Tonight our Governor put out a 'stay at home' order requesting everyone in Washington State do just that: stay home!
This is such a serious virus you guys. We definitely won't be leaving the house again for a while. I went grocery shopping today and got enough food for a couple of weeks so we're good.
What measures has your state taken?
Is everyone in your family healthy?
I hope and pray you're all doing well!
