Staycation 2020 #1

During the global 2007-2008 financial crisis, our family spent the summer exploring nearby localities in what was quaintly coined as a “staycation.” Flash forward 13 years and here we are again. Many venues are closed; either for social distancing or financial ripple effect. Right. Staycation 2020, it is.

There’s always a silver lining. Backyards have never looked nicer. Recycling or updating is in again. People are creating or building at astounding rates (just check the local hardware store) and revisiting nature to satisfy the restless soul.

We’ve replaced fencing, built a kayak rack, sanded and repainted outdoor furniture, weeded and planted, pressure-washed…you name it. Now that school is officially out for the summer, it’s time to have some outdoor fun!

More than anything, I look forward to the time when my WHOLE family and friends can safely gather together once again. Until then, it’s sprucing up, positive thoughts 😀 and staycation jaunts!

I wish you a good week! — Joanne

    1. Thank you! By the time this is over (if ever?) I think we will all have great yards, LOL. I’m not complaining too much about staying home. I have what I need.
