Usually once a week we cook and bake then deliver food to nearby friends and relatives. Today I felt like baking cakes so after I was done we went and dropped these off at at cousin's place and a couple of friend's houses. I just call and tell them we are on the way, hang the food on their doors in a bag, then call again and they come outside and we have a quick conversation, standing a dozen feet apart. I hope this "new normal" is over soon, I miss hugging my friends!
Another way we keep in touch with friends and relatives is my "texting chain". Each day I take a picture of hubby doing something--on our morning walk, cooking, etc--then send it out in a group text and everyone kind of falls into a texting conversation for a bit. Weird but a fun way to keep in touch with people. Now a few people are even looking forward to these pictures and if they don't get them by a certain time each day they text and see why I haven't sent it yet! I guess the tldr; of this post is to check up on your friends and relatives, especially people who are quarantining at home and are alone, it will brighten their day!
