Howdy! I have been thinking about all of you and hoping everyone is well.
Re: dumping coffee grounds on the lawn -- yes, you can. I used to put them in my flower beds, not only to give the plants a boost but it sometimes deters cats from visiting.
I haven't posted in a while, so for those who don't "know" me, I have freelanced from home for 10 years, and have been the family caregiver for 7. My folks are over 85 and have health problems, my sister uses a wheelchair. I'm the only driver, so for now I am the only one leaving the house. I wear gloves while in the store or pharmacy and after removing them at the car, slather on the sanitizer. I am a 50-something woman with the hands of a 75 year old, but it's worth it.
I have cancelled routine doctor visits in order to avoid getting my family out; each one is considered high risk for at least 2 reasons. My biggest fear is that I will bring the virus home, my second biggest is that one of us will have to be hospitalized for any reason and we'll never see them again. Needless to say, I pray for peace of mind. A lot. Especially before turning in at night.
On the up side, having days where I don't leave the house means I can clean and organize, and my goal for the week is to take down the (artificial) Christmas tree. It's not visible from the street and no one comes to visit, so it hasn't been a priority.
The other day I told Mom, "remember when doctors told parents that allowing kids to play in the dirt was good for their immune system? Well, given how long it's been since I mopped the floor, we must have really strong immune systems!"
Take care, everyone!
