Santa Cruz Shelter in Place 2020: Day 20

Day 20 of the Shelter in Place ordinance here in Santa Cruz, started off like any other Saturday, with a gourmet breakfast made by Danny. Later on, I went to Santa Cruz Vac and Sew to pick up supplies for Ellia to make face masks for her friends and the Santa Cruz community. I had to take a nap, because of a splitting headache, but Ellia and Danny turned our living room into a face mask making factory. And it’s the cutest thing, it’s making me so happy.

Danny and I ended the night with a group happy hour FaceTime with all of our friends. We were able to play some games together, while still practicing safe social distancing. I miss my friends so much, but I am so thankful that we have technology in order to stay in touch.

Stay tuned for Day 21 of Sheltering in Place here in Santa Cruz.

I had to come lay down because I was fighting a headache all day and I tend to occasionally get migraines if I don’t pay attention and allow a headache to get the best of me, so I just took a little nap and I feel a lot better. And I’m listening to Danny and Ellia talk in the living room. They’re making face masks out of materials so that we can deliver them to people who need them. And it’s the cutest thing, it’s making me so happy. So I’m gonna go see how it’s going out there. I hope you guys are doing well. I hope you’re getting some rest, it’s raining in Santa Cruz, it’s gray. I feel so much better. Oh my gosh, I look like a crazy person. But I just woke up and Danny made me breakfast in bed. Isn’t it beautiful? It looks like the garden. And Ellia is learning how to make– No mom, don’t. Saturday dance party. So I’m kind of a badass like leftover cook or like, we only have a couple ingredients kinda cook. So I’m gonna make some barley using the– My family’s laughing at me, they think I’m being ridiculous. Using the leftover artichoke water so it’ll have kind of like an artichoke-y flavor. And then I also made some roasted vegetables. Gonna see how these, oh yeah that looks good. Broccoli and cauliflower roasted in the oven, yum! Woo woo woo. Ellia, can you tell me what you’re making? Masks. Face masks? I love this material that you’re using. Look what’s on it everybody. Branded face masks with foxes. I love foxes. Do you love foxes? No because they eat our chickens. They have definitely snacked on some chickens. But chickens are just– But, but, but you’re okay. I’m okay? Yeah, you’re okay. I’m an okay fox? How’s it going, Ellia? Good. But I forgot a step on my sewing machine. And what step was that? Where I put in the thread, I had to put it across. Are you gonna show me? I had to put it across that thing right there. And there, through there, through there, and I forgot to put it through there. I unordered the chalk, I have to find something else. It was like $24 to deliver it. Chalk? Yeah. The chalk was $15 and it was 24 to deliver. Look, why don’t you just go and steal some off of someone’s porch? That’s not cool. Yard shop. This looks like a full on factory. How’s it going you guys? We’re almost that good, we’re not quite factory. Oh you got like a little nose thing too? Show me the inside. Old school T-shirt for comfort. Nice. Oh that’s so good! But it’s not supposed– Woo woo woo woo woo! Oh that’s supposed to be your size? No, Dad why did you cut this smaller than this? Hey hey hey, take a breath. So that way we can fold it over and it won’t be too thick at the end. This OCD mama is having a little bit of a hard time with the production site. Because, while it’s amazing, it’s messy. What was that, Danny? That was so gross. What was what? I just stepped right here on the floor. Oh it didn’t do it again. Why did it only happen that last time? It wasn’t me man, I didn’t do anything. Danny just went to the store, he’s a good man. And what is it Danny? Coffee toffee Heath bar crunch. And tell the people about that. It’s your favorite. In the world. In the whole– And they stopped making it for a long time. Whole world. And now it’s back on the shelves. Thank you Ben and Jerry’s. I know where to find it, it’s only at Safeway occasionally. Ugh, so good. We all know you do. I do, who said that? You have a cocktail, I think I want a cocktail like Jen. I want Jen’s cocktail. You picked that one Saunder? Did you pick that one? Supporting local business, I am stopping by Santa Cruz Vac and Snow, and Sew. Santa Cruz Vac and Sew. I’m gonna put gloves on, I’m gonna put a mask on and I’m gonna have them come serve me outside. But we’re gonna see if I can get some elastic so that Ellia can make face masks for her people. Wish me luck. All right, I’m locked and ready to go. Let’s go check this out. Here we are at Santa Cruz Vac and Sew. And we’re getting what we need is elastic ’cause my daughter’s making these. Yep, we got plenty of it. I got 1600 yards in yesterday. It’s the new toilet paper. It’s amazing, you’re amazing. Ah! Couldn’t get it anywhere. Woo! Here we are at Santa Cruz Vac and Sew. Yes, and tomorrow we’re gonna have a couple, four seamstresses in tomorrow from Care from the Heart and we’re allowing to use our machines, material, we’re donating, allow them to start sewing up masks for home care, hospice, and retirement facilities.
