I just hope a quick recovery of the boy. New strain or not, influenza is a nasty disease.
Officials recommend using use-it & toss-it type face masks when going out. HA! They're sold out. It's OK. I've made several of this.
It's made of soft cotton double gauze. They say it's not effective to catch sneezes and coughs, just works to some degree to prevent touching nose/mouth with unwashed hands. I don't really care how much it works. I simply like the idea of having cute pink sheep close to me.
Tell the truth, I never liked and still don't wearing these kind of masks. My daughter tried it, like, for 10 seconds and gave it away to her "friends" (toys, stuffed animals, dollies).
Well, we'll just wash our hands more often.
Today, it's raining outside. This maybe good for the purpose of restricting young children from going out & spread the virus, and is a bad, bad news to mothers who have over-energized and bored school-goers.
We (my daughter and I) are planning a little baking. I am planning a little organizing on toys, too, but my daughter is not so keen on it. Anyway, it's not so bad to have more mother-and-daughter time (yeah, it's a new mantra for me now).
