Doing some drawing now. Hawaii is in terrible second wave of Covid-19 so we’re in shutdown again. The beaches and parks are closed, no parties, gatherings of more than 10 people, social distancing 6’, MASKS, no funerals, no church, no gyms, no dining restaurants or beer parties, etc. It’s no fun, rather pathetic. But I still have art and it helps a lot. -Liz

Sorry to hear about the Covid being a problem again.  I am in NJ and we are in phase two some things are open but still no indoor dining and they just pulled back on the amount of people you can have in groups.  I think this will be with us for quite some time to come. 


I like your drawing.  :clap: :clap:

 :thankyou: Folks for your encouragement.  For us here it’s like lockdown, not just shutdown. For example, you can walk through the park to get to the beach. But you can’t sit or sunbathe; you can take your dip or surf, but when you’re done you must leave. When we drove past Waikiki beach I saw lots of people in the water and surfers; some people were standing close in the water talking.  Lockdown started on Saturday. Over 1,300 citations were issued for citations for not social distancing and other violations. Some people cannot help themselves when the weather here is so beautiful.  Crowds of people with their tents and beach equipment partying helped bring back the virus, among other things.  Firemen, policemen, grocery employees, state and county workers have tested positive recently and our main hospital is filled with Covid-18 patients.

It is so sad, hard for people not to be social.  This is a difficult time for all of us.  I pray this comes to an end soon.  With winter coming here, we are afraid this will strenghten and then what will happen to the small businesses and children's schooling.  Such a worry.

After NZ going 102 days with no community transfer cases of Covid-19 we had 4 of a family of 6 test positive, :'( 2 of who have traveled over the weekend :( So now the region of Auckland is back to level 3 which means no-one in shops, working from home where possible, schools closing again, rest homes completely locked down, no traveling to or out of Auckland Region (complete with road blocks), social distancing and preferably wearing masks in public. No bars or restaurants open etc.

For us outside of Auckland we have shifted to level 2 which means social distancing, good hygiene (should be a given  :confused: ) and contract tracing. Of course due to panic buying starting within moments of the 10:30pm announcement, all our supermarkets/grocery stores are back to limiting how much we can purchase and there are lines out the door and around the block of many. :'(
Aroha! Lisa :-)

Hi Lisa, it’s very sad that NZ has the virus again!  My condo manager closed our pool, but the mayor meant public pools. Only 4 of us use our pool and at different times and our manager has closed our pool since last Friday. Daily Water exercise and swimming is my therapy, so I’m freaking mad at him and no one know what he plans to do (yet).


The shopping is the hard part. Make sure you have a lot of toilet paper.  In the beginning there were no limits and people grabbed all the TP, not saving some for others. Then we had a hurricane that missed us by a hair and during the days preceding its hit folks bought water, canned food and toilet paper again. We sure are living in uncertain days!


Some schools have started up part time, but now we have teachers and kids getting positives! Along with staff and convicts at the State prison.  🙏🙏🙏 for our safety. -Liz

Yes Liz, definitely a scary and sad time. We have gone hard and it appears to be working. We have had it spread amongst the community but the numbers are getting lower each day again and they seem to be getting on top of it. Fingers crossed. :pray:

Just really hoping life gets back to a more normal and safe condition for everyone soon.  :hug:
Aroha! Lisa :-)
