Lovin' Life 9/4/2020: Five Things.

Well hellloooo.....

Here are five things I'm lovin' about this week.  Besides being off for its entirety :-)

Escaping the great indoors for my just over the legal one hour of outdoor exercise.  Ironically but not surprisingly, there were more of my fellow runners out than pre self-isolation.  Rest assured, readers, we all self-distanced.

This Cher meme that reminded me the right way to wind my clocks on Sunday made me laugh.  How good is it when you find a great meme these days .. and it's not about that virus?

It's not often an official letter from the Prime Minister makes it to my blog but I made an exception for this missive that gives The Easter Bunny a Special Eggs-emption.

I love a good three-ingredient sauce.  We're having chicken teriyaki for dinner tonight and the sauce recipe is another Recipe Tin winner.

If there's one good thing to have come out of this new world of ours, it's seeing the generosity and sense of community of my fellow Australians.  So many local businesses have gone out of their way to show their support of frontline health care workers.  Gifts of food to hospitals, special access to the supermarket to enable us to get that all-important toilet paper, waived fees from the telcos and support in the form of diverting their factories to produce much-needed PPE and hand sanitizer. 

The Bundoora Boat Upholstery company in Thomastown, Victoria have begun manufacturing and delivering face masks and shields across the country.  My order of face shield shields arrived on Monday and I have enough to share with my colleagues to supplement the equipment at work.  The shields are lightweight as well as being easy to assemble and wear.  Because they wrap around your head, you can still wear your glasses under them without getting too sweaty.  There's also enough room for your face mask. 

While I like everyone else working in the hospital system are touched by our community's generosity, it's also rewarding on a personal level to be able to give back by supporting local businesses and purchasing equipment from them. 

We are only doing the same work we did pre Covid-19 and very fortunate to still have our secure jobs while so many around us face financial uncertainty if not ruin as well as the fear of becoming ill. 

It's taken a virus to teach us how to be our best selves.
