Positively False? Nose Rodents and Windmills

Hello, Benjamin from Brother’s Campfire here!

Every day, Monday through Friday, I take a Covid test.

On Thursdays I take two different types of tests. After a while, it is as repulsive as having a rodent shoved up your nose.

Aww, But it’s so cute though!

I suppose it is not that repulsive but I am blogging. I do sneeze a lot when oversize q tips are in my nasal passage.

I am just as ready as the next person for this to be over and got my first shot. The first vaccination shot was easy and there was no negative symptoms other than fatigue.

I am scheduled for the second in late May.

But noo. Change of plans.

One of the tests popped a positive. Now I have to quarantine.

I just had Covid in January. There is like no way I have it again.

So I quarantine with no symptoms, frustrated. Though I have free time I am a prisoner to my own house for 10 days.

The bright side is that I will not be eligible for a covid test for around 90 days so there will be no nose swabs when I return to work.

Another bright side is that I was able to get Watchman Wayne outside to oversee security.

Wayne was built from a broken down chicken coop and #10 cans. A little on the older side, I sprayed him down with linseed oil to keep him a while longer.

I sprayed a little linseed on a decorative windmill as well. Lets hope I get another couple of seasons out of it.

Someone was going to throw this beauty away. Unbelievable.

Well, perhaps there are a few things to be done here at Willow Manor.

I will keep you posted!

  1. I have yet to be tested for covid…nor have I had the shots, but I think you may know that already. I don’t plan on getting the shot, if I can hold out.
    Good luck with the shot(s) and dealing with the positive covid test…I’ve heard that having had the shot could result in a positive test. Who really knows…

    1. The social repercussion for leaving your home is what is bothering me most. I have zero symptoms, numerous negative tests, a first shot, and I had Covid in January. The chance I really have it is low low.

      1. Yeah…I’ve heard once you’ve had covid you’re immune to it for the rest of your life. Of course, it all depends which doctor you talk to. This is true for anything, I think.
