Exciting day.

21 Dec

Two things made today extra exciting.

First, I received my first dose of the covid vaccine. The health care company I work for declared hospice employees with direct patient contact to be “tier 1.” As soon as they got their first shipment of vaccines, they began distributing to tier 1 employees. For me, that meant today. There was some gravity to moment; it’s been a long year and (I hope) this means relief is in sight in the year to come, especially for all the health care workers who certainly work with covid patients more than I do.

Second, across from the hospital where I received my vaccine today was a Caribou Coffee. Guys. A Caribou Coffee. In Milwaukee. (A MN coffee chain, dontchaknow.) Now, I know there are Caribous in Wisconsin but I thought the farthest east was Madison. Milwaukee, people! Of course I stopped after I spent my 30 minutes sitting in an auditorium following my vaccination. Now, unfortunately, it’s not a full-on Caribou; it’s shared with an Einstein Bagels. However, I will take whatever amount of Caribou I can find on this side of the state. #icedvanillalatte You can bet when I return in three weeks for my second vaccine dose I’ll stop again.

    All the more reason to come back to visit Owatonna—we have a Caribou now!

    My brother probably build the kitchen for that Einstein/Caribou! Glad you enjoyed it.

    Happy for you with the vaccine. Pray that we all get it quickly. We feel we will be in about level 3 and that will happen in March-June. So happy for all of you folks that work closely with patients and families. Enjoy your latte. I got a box of them, different flavors, for a Christmas game price. Tried one and can’t say I love it or even like it. I just love my Donut Shoppe coffee with a splash of French vanilla in the early morning hours as I sit by the tree with the fireplace on and my current book in my hand. Take care. Love hearing from you. We are doing great. Soon we each will be turning a year older and I must say we are feeling it.

      Sitting by the tree with coffee and a book sounds lovely! Enjoy this season, Linda!
