Hi, It's candy here over in California, I live in L.
A county and man.
What has changed again since the last time we recorded, I believe with last Thursday.
It was a Friday.
The governor of California basically said that all the non essential stores shut down.
So basically the only establishments that are allowed to be open our grocery stores drugstores, back clinics, hospitals, pharmacies, so it's like a essential is allowed to stay open.
Restaurants were still open to, but not for dining only carry out.
Other than that, everything else has to close faras grocery shopping That has not changed.
I'm still having issues finding eggs.
It is almost a they close at eight.
They have no kind of close early.
Now stock up more food, and they also think opened up earlier just for right now.
But I still can't find any eggs, although there was bread.
And right now we are looking claiming of alcohol studio.
I did finally find some eggs at a much more upscale grocery store.
I guess you want to call I.
It doesn't look that upscale, but the prices of scale so I normally buy eggs just under $2 I cannot find eggs that are under $4.
The aisles were slowly stalking back up.
I've seen more Brende now, more canned goods, so and there's still plenty of produce.
I haven't seen any, like produce being completely sold out.
So that's nice, because I eat a lot of vegetables because things I've been doing at home, I've been doing more, I guess D I Y projects and I decided to start making my home face maths.
I found, um, a lot like handkerchiefs and kitchen towels that I haven't used you.
So I decided to use that as my fabric.
And I also needed elastic for the mask part, and I surprisingly, had some ha stick in my sunk it.
So I made some mass this week, and I think I did pretty well.
I think if my sewing machine was working a little bit better, I could probably do a better job.
Also decided Teoh teach my dog a new trick because I saw Crystal teaching coma last week.
How Teoh Pringle Bell.
So I asked her where she got it.
She got on Amazon, so I bought the same once I've been teaching so we that she learns really best because she's a little piggy.
So anything for treats Children?
I've been teaching her that Good touch.
Can you just one pot?
Such okay without what it's like.
OK, No, no way.
Touch tryto teach her, like one new trick a week.
So that was my goal for this week was to teach her that that belt click.
She still needs a little more practice, though.
One thing I started doing this week is when I went when I went into the grocery stores, I put on some gloves.
But when I get all that, I'm putting my stuff away.
The wind down my boxes and cans, OK, I wear my gloves in this store, right?
I'm picking my stuff, going to check out.
I don't want to touch my credit card of my folks that my my stuff is on my phone in my phone.
Eso then I kind of remove one glows and then, you know, do the transaction that way.
Then I put my card away, put the clothes back on, and then when I get home, you know, remove a glass.
But then I'm like, Well, all the stuff.
I just bought it.
I touched with the clothes on.
So then do I have to disinfect this stuff?
But I I maybe I'm overthinking it.
I've also been doing my daily walks as usual with so we.
But I have noticed that there are a lot more people out on the neighborhood, you know, taking their walks.
Even the park that I usually go to is way more packs.
Now I am at the park today and, um, although you know the state of California has put in a safer at home initiative, that does not mean you can't go to the park.
But you just, you know, to make sure to maintain your distance of six feet from people I use a kind of this part with my dog is a nice open space.
There's plenty of people here, actually, in the parking lot.
It was almost full.
I grabbed the last spot.
There are a lot of families here biking, riding their horses, so there's a lot of activity going on, but everyone is keeping their distance.
The only people that are near each other are obviously their kids, other family members that's allowed but if you are, you know, if you're not related to the person.
If you're just friends, you are supposed to keep your distance.
But right now I'm in an area where it is very isolated.
I don't see anyone at the moment.
They're Zoe, So I stopped going to that part.
I love that part, but it was kind of supposed to be doing a social distancing thing.
Kind of defeats the purpose.
If I'm going somewhere where it's packed, those are The big difference is that are the big changes that happened this week?
Things are still kind of scarce in the grocery stores.
Nothing is back to Normally, things are closed.
I'm keeping my distance from people staying home like the governor ordered, and spending time with Zoe Outside is the only thing I've been doing.
When I do boss, I will besides grocery shopping and then taking her for walks.
So things I've noticed in Florida well, just recently, you know, with spring break.
And there's still a lot of beach goers, a lot of kids coming from college, going Teoh these crowded beaches when you're supposed to be practising social distancing.
It was just like a massive amounts of people.
So finally, on Sunday, a few days ago, they shut down all the beaches.
Unless you're on a private beach, then obviously you can still go to the beach.
But, you know, all the public beaches are closed.
So no more beach in Florida for now, in our county and Tampa Bay, they're putting in there trying to put in a stay at home order just that they have something in place.
So our mayor is trying to do this, but the county is not really agreeing with it.
They're thinking a curfew is better.
So there's been, like a lot of debate on what's going to happen.
So, yeah, maybe the next couple of days we'll hear something different because since Monday, she's been trying Teoh push for a stay at home rule.
But we'll see.
So what I've been doing this week, um, I've actually been enjoying it.
This quarantine, it's not 100% quarantine because it could still go outside and enjoy it.
I could still take my dog to the dog park.
We're very careful of, you know, touching it.
I've been doing exercises every day at home Yeah, my goal is to hit 400 calories every day.
So if you have an apple watch, you know that if you hit all three rings, you've accomplished all your goals for today s Oh, I'm trying to accomplish hating 400 calories every day, walking at least 30 minutes a day and also getting up every hour, 12 times in a day.
So, yeah, I just want a lot of YouTube videos.
It and I love these dance moves on And these hip hop moves just something fun to make the time pass by a lot faster have also been going grocery shopping every other day because, you know, I'm still trying to find some things because last week I couldn't find flower or I went to Walmart first thing this morning.
They opened their new hours.
Right now are 7 a.m. To 8:30 p.m. There was plenty of water.
So if you're in Tampa and you're looking for water, come in the morning at Wal Mart.
I'm in Tampa on the at the North Del May Bring location.
Still no toilet paper, no flower, no oil.
There is still plenty of chickens.
I got on the packet chicken, because I know I'm gonna use chicken for sure.
I'm just trying to get essential items.
You know, that all knee that I'm going to use?
I'm trying not to Overstock.
01 thing I noticed is walmart is finally limiting the amount of things you can get.
They have signs throughout that.
Say, Hey, you know, you can only get one her item.
So I usually go to the self service, check out where they have, you know, 10 registers, and you could just check out yourself on.
And usually there's, you know, one staff member there just kind of overseeing everything.
But today they were on top of it.
They're looking at every single cart and making sure they only had one item per household and made sure that they weren't hoarding everything.
So there was a lot of people that were hoarding, of course.
So they took out.
You know, all those items like a sorry.
You can only get one item.
So kudos to home are for doing that.
Went to the Asian store this morning at 9:30 a.m. And I still had plenty of rice.
There was some rice packs ever gone pie like the cheaper ones.
But I typically buy the more expensive rice bags anyway because I just love Rice and I need to have the best price.
Their grocery store still had lots of products.
Nothing was out of stock, so that made me feel a little bit better.
It's Monday, March 23rd and I am at Wal Mart again today.
They have not restart really anything, or if they did, it's all gone already.
Um, I was looking for I was gonna say they had toilet paper, but no toilet paper.
I did find Flower, though, so I was happy about that because I haven't been able to find flour anywhere.
There's plenty of vegetables.
Chicken is kind of running out today anyway.
I'm sure they're going to restock, but you all the chicken thighs were how they have plenty of chicken breasts.
A tip with the WalMart shopping.
At least I don't know.
You know you'll find this everywhere, But at Wal Mart, they watched closely what everybody hasn't our cards.
So if you have more than one item of what they're trying to limit, but take it out of your car and they put it in the separate card by them.
So if you're looking for any of these products, you know, like water or 20 per so hard to find.
But veggie oil, things like that.
Just look in that car next to you, the cells associate, and you might find what you're looking for.
Of course, I've been playing with Kuma every day to, you know, she gets a little bit bored, so Ah, play with her toys.
She was a little bit crazy with her, her fluffy toy that she likes to just slip her head around and it kind of makes me laugh.
But she loves to play that.
And she also mastered her bell ring trick.
So I was very proud of her about Gugger.
Read about be the good good read about good care.
Yeah, she learned that trick in, like, two days.
If you have a food driven dog is very easy to teach tricks like this S O.
Yeah, I'm just wondering what trick I should teach her next.
I went to the dog park was come of this past weekend and everybody was practicing social distancing, which I was very proud of.
Just take my baby to the dog pot.
You might want to say hi worry.
Did you have fun?
Yeah, there is still the normal people there.
Everybody was practicing the social distancing, so that was great.
Everybody was aware, You know, they haven't shut down the outdoor parks yet, so I'm thankful for that.
I did see signs the warn people against using the playground equipment because there was a Children's park right next to the dog park.
But so far, it's a normal day to enjoy the dog park here in Tampa.
I'm It's a very large dog park, too, so we have plenty of room to spread out.
So yeah, so glad that I'm able to take her to the dog park.
I also took care of a lot of cleaning.
My apartment is pretty much a mess every day.
One day I just, like, really worked at it and just cleaned everything up, and it just feels so good to have a clean place to get also talked to my family again.
So, yeah, we're having these weekly calls those air great, too.
So I talked to my dad and mom in Japan, Candy in California and then also this time include our brother and our knees and our sister in law.
My call to you know, we talked a little bit about what's going on each other's lives, and surprisingly, in Japan.
Life isn't that different.
So my dad said that everybody is still going to work.
Everybody is, you know, still doing normal things, going to the grocery stores, going to the mall.
They said, like no stores are really closed.
The only thing that's closed our schools.
But, um, that's actually starting up against soon to.
So it's kind of strange that everywhere else around the world, you know, things are shutting down.
But Japan is kind of a normal, like normal daily life.
Yeah, I think like that's about it for this week of updates and what's been going on.
Um, I hope everybody is safe out there and make sure you're practicing social distancing.
