Tuscany is Code Red

It’s getting ramped up fast here. We are still Orange but just a few miles from here is Tuscany, and it is Code Red now. The highest. Pretty much a complete lockdown over there. The map below shows how fast Italy is raising the alarms.

Unfortunately I now know of a number of people in our area who’ve tested positive, or of people in self-isolation after being exposed. It is far worse for Umbria in this second wave that it was in the first.

It is Saturday. It’s cold and damp here. I am not even going outside to our Kilometer zero market. We have the stufa burning so it’s cozy inside. Here’s the foggy view from our terazza …No laundry will be drying today!

I had hoped to clean up some in my ortino. Take a look at my biggest producer. I’ve never had a pepper with so many before! These all ripened in the last 3 days. And these babies are HOT. I freeze them but now they are taking over all the space.

Stay Covid-safe everyone. Wear your mask! Andrà tutto bene 🌈

    Hi Jodi, at least they are trying there…and here. So many places in the US are just letting the disease rip. I am very sorry for the businesses. We order take out 2 or 3 times a week. Trying to support them through this. You stay safe too 💕💕

    Thanks Matthew. I know it will get better here. I don’t mind it so much. I hope maybe things will get better there with a role model at the top…but then I remember 71,000,000 people won’t believe him. 😢

    So frustrating Nancy. In Oregon we are starting a two week freeze. Not as restrictive as before but tip toeing towards it. They are closing dine in for restaurants again allowing only take out. Not sure how they will survive this time. You and Luther stay safe as well! xoxo Jodi

    Hi Nancy – We just have to remember there WILL be a bright side to all this, hopefully in the not too distant future. No talk of lock-down here in the US and it’s doubtful there would be compliance anyway – very sad. Just tuck in with Luther and your cats and stay healthy and keep blogging!!
