for fun: Do/Would you still put on all your makeup and decent clothes if you are quarantined

 I live 45 miles from Mojave airport. I watched the Virgin Galactic testing years ago. After the launch I couldn't see a thing, so I called my dad in Florida who was watching it live on TV. His view was from the camera on board the escort jet. Dad gave me the play-by-play while those of us on the ground waited for the space craft to make it back to Mojave airport. It was such fun!

Cool!!!  Lot of good stuff out there at Mojave!!   Even during the Space Shuttle days, when I lived in So CA, it was exciting to see the Enterprise flying to Edwards on the back of the 747.  And, when flights started, hearing those "booms" as the Shuttles cross overhead.

Launch was scrubbed. They will try again Saturday.

Yep. Bummer.  I watched the whole thing for hours on spacex.com live feeds, all the way from when Bob and Doug (I love how they are always called by their first names!!) arrived at 39A, up the elevators, got in the Crew Dragon, waited and waited, to when they got back out of Crew Dragon, down the elevators and into the Teslas.  

 

I sure hope the weather/lightning holds good for Saturday.  I'll wash my Tshirt to wear again on Saturday!!  And, it is cool to have even a little connection to it - got to go to 39A on my KSC bus tour.  It feels more "real" to see it again on TV.

We drove to Titusville and back...so many people. So many cars parked wherever they could be parked. It was street festival chaos! Really fun atmosphere though. We managed to park the car and be at the same park we were at for the night launch last summer. So disappointed that it was canceled due to lightning. Ah well.

 

B41698-F5-3414-4704-A83-A-CBEDFBB5773-B.

 

We stayed well separated from everyone...my feet were at the water and we found some rocks to sit on in the brush LOL. It felt like groups were together and kind of sort of maintaining some distance...kinda? Ah well. Traffic was horrible but I always enjoy spending time with DH.

<first try failed>  

I was going to say "why, look at all those mask wearers and social distancing behind you." 😉😀  Good to see your mask!!

 

Titusville??? Yikes!  I saw a photo from there today - hundreds of people, squished together like sardines, standing on the Mercer Bridge Causeway there.  No masks, no distancing.  Looked like a Darwin Experiment.  Hope you waited and waited if you had to go back over that!  And everyone does it again on Saturday...

I also saw a picture of that bridge and thought the same thing. Not sure how most of those people could even move! Anita, glad you two found some space away from the crowds. Hope it goes better for the next try!

slidergirl...IDK how familiar you are with the area? It sounds like you have friends here and visit? We weren't on a bridge...we were in a park along US 1 that is right there along the waterfront. Cars were double-parked all along the one side and every inch of available lawn landscaping and parking on the other side...double and triple parked...OMG. That's why I said it was chaos. We arrived just before 4, desperate for a bathroom... We managed to find a workable situation there that wasn't too scary...and in fact, was pretty darn good, all things considered. Then I managed to squeeze the car in front of another one at a corner, with probably less than ideal space between the front and the corner? But enough for the conditions! LOL. Late arrival...we were poised well for a decent getaway...but with that many people...the traffic was significant.

 

IDK if we'll go back on Saturday? Or how we'll work it this weekend. DH and I haven't talked about it. We'll see...

I have a dear friend who is from the area.  She has a great little beach cottage in Cocoa Beach that I use once in awhile.  I love to drive all around where I'm at, not just park myself at a pool or beach.  So, yep, I've driven through there.   She also hooked me up to several Cocoa Beach FB groups to keep up on what is going on, where to eat, etc.  

 You got there just before 4???  Wow!  Cutting it close there, but looks like it worked to your favor.  If you don't go, be sure to watch it on space.com!!!!

love this pic anita!   but the people in the background, yikes!  glad you two stayed in your little safe zone :)   I had my first "real" outing yesterday....  I've been going to the grocery store about once a week for the last few weeks, & I upped my game to an amazon return at the Amazon locker location (basically it's like putting your return in a big mailbox like bin in a wall)   then I walked on the pathway above the beach for a few hours...  put on a mask whenever anyone came within 10 feet, which wasn't often...  it was beautiful, & weird with all the cargo ships sitting there with nowhere to go.

what's so weird is that this scene should be filled with sailboats... not freight ships...  there were some sailboats, but not a lot.   I desperately want to take our little Lido out...  but we trailer her, don't have a slip....hopefully in the next few weeks we'll be able to get out :)   

 

My haircut appointment for next week got cancelled again...  made another one for July 15th, keeping fingers crossed that salons will be allowed to reopen in some form by then :)

cruisekitty, you look very well coordinated and I love that mask. Hope it isn’t as warm (hot) there as it is here, Salons  are open now in my part of the state. 

 

I went to Costco this morning-hadn’t been there since mid February, before all the madness so I saw quite a difference. My list was long and I was able to take care of most of it. They were out of some things or the brands available weren’t what I wanted. This location is usually very busy but maybe the heat kept some home. I almost fainted when I saw the total $! However for a 3 and half month absence I guess it was actually pretty normal. The clothing I wore was pretty much what I would have worn if this were just a normal Costco trip. Didn’t bother much with makeup since the mask covers up  so  much of my face anyway.

@purduemom1  salons in other counties are open here, but not ours, & after this long, I'd hate to try someone new... don't need that going on on top of everything else. :)  we were supposed to have a crazy heat wave, but luckily it didn't hit..  it's super breezy & warm, but nice!    the only make up I'm doing nowadays is my brows...  nothing else shows lol ;)

Launch day was the only day we could bring cameras onto the Center (no cell phone cameras then). We were on the sand dunes with our cameras focused on the capsule to get the pictures of the first teacher in space. We watched & shot film, of the capsule hitting the water, still intact, our film was all confiscated.  Our children were in schools in Satellite Beach, they all watched the launch from the beaches across from their schools. After the explosion the busses picked the kids up & drove them home. It was a horrible time. We left FL 4 months later when my husband was transferred to Colorado. My job disappeared with the shuttle program. Melody

cruisekitty, yes, probably better to wait until your salon opens and hopefully it won’t be long. Newsom seems to be quickly moving things along. 

 

Well, the heat  must have decided to change its planned destination. It is 105 here🥵! Just hoping that PG&E can hold it together.

I'm doing OK.  One of the side effects of one of the new meds is possible dehydration - so I'm drinking like a camel.  I am soooo sick of water!  I've got to go to the store and maybe get some Pedialyte - I've seen some ads on TV lately where adults are using it for dehydration.  I've got "allergy eye" in my right eye - all red and irritated.  We've got some wind going and with everything blooming, especially the chokeberry tree in the backyard, my eyes are not feeling the love.  I'm basically pouring Visine Allergy into the eye!!!

 

How are you doing?  I understand the iPhone thing - I'm a touch typist on my MacBook.  but, I'm a single finger "pecker" on my iPhone.  I don't know how the kids do it!!!

 

Today's fashion: Sweaty Betty black & gold "jungle" leggings (7/8 length), and a gray Tshirt from WoolX.   Shoeless, as always, in the house.

Hi  I am doing ok

I can type with both hands so that isn't too bad

It is just so small. Lol

I actually went out to lunch today!!! First time I had been to a restaurant in forever and it felt really good! They had people at every other table and I had a delicious Grilled portobello on top of a garden salad with a little oil and vinegar dressing.

I then went to Fresh Market as a change of pace.  I love their stuff. Sometimes they can be pricey but today I didn't care.  Got some wonderful fish along with other items.

I am in blue Bermuda shorts and a type die top with sandals.

Highly recommend Pedialyte. We always have some in the fridge (I hate Gatorade). Just watch the sugars.

I'm not a Gatorade/Powerade fan, either.  I do like the sugar free VitaminWater in XXX flavor (XXX is the name).  It's kind of a pomegranate one.   I just need something.  I HATE those artificial sugar Crystal Lite things, too.  

I put 2 of my last True Lime packets in my 32oz HydroFlask with my water.  It's a great travel item - each packet is nothing but dried lime power (they have Lemon, too) and 1 packet = 1/4 lime slice.  I take them traveling to help out with nasty tasting "local" waters.  I have a few left in my pantry. 

I was the weird one - at Hot Dog on a Stick, when I'd get a lemonade, I'd ask for only 1 packet of sugar for it...

cruise kitty...cute outfit! We’re you the one that ordered the something Jam brand name masks? Is that one of them? Like your hat too...so essential at the shore.

 

We’ve decided to not go back to the coast for the launch. We had thought that the midweek launch might be slightly less crowded but it was so bad traffic wise, getting there and back. It’s just not worth it, and since we’re going to be moving there...it just seems like too much effort for the return...just to say we were there. Ah well.

 

Ive never heard of those packets. When I’m doing my best, I do try to drink water with something more in it, just because it seems to go right through me without actually helping with hydration if there’s no substance to it. Lemons. Limes. Ginger slices. Cucumbers. It’s like bringing a spa home...I haven’t been too many times, but spa water is always flavored.

Sometimes you can find them in the stores where the Crystal Lite/Mimo is.  Or, grab it on line.  It really is handy to have when I travel!  

 

Good call on the launch.  I have a feeling it's going to be scrubbed again today.
