I see that The Motivator of the Day is CLAIREINPARIS, and I had wondered why she no longer had posted her wonderful blogs of her travels around the world, as her last one was 2 yrs ago. Do you remember her? She had a lot of them from her hikes outside of Paris, where she lived. I see her page no longer allows comments and all of her pictures and blogs have former comments deleted. I was happy for her that she released 70# (if I recall correctly, she had finally decided to have weight loss surgery.) She said she was 6' tall.
Her work took her around the world, and she was a wonderful photographer. If anyone knows how she is (did she go to Facebook like so many others?), I'd like to know.

Hope everyone is well. I'm 70 and my husband is 73, so we have been trying to be careful about the Covid-19.
I've been doing "home-school" with my 2 GDS who are 5 and 7 using ABEKA Academy (which normally serves 250,000 home schoolers), but they miss their "real school." My K5 GD said today "I'm glad that was my last test for the year, as I am tired of this FAKE school."

    I remember her, too. In fact, another Sparker whom I have visited (she lives a couple of hours away) used to travel to France periodically and she visited Claire there.

    Also mostly staying home, or at least out of buildings with a lot of people in them. Just because things are open doesn't make them safe.

    Oh, yes, I remember Claire too. She had some lovely walks.... The little glimpses into her life were wonderful.

    Glad you are doing well, Jibbie! Stay healthy!

    Yes, I remember Claire. We never know the fate of others here unless they share more personal info to us.

    Home schooling is quite an undertaking great that you are doing it.

    Too bad CLAIREINPARIS disappeared. I liked her blogs too.

    Stay home, stay safe.

    I've asked about Claire a few times, but no response. I hope nothing is wrong.

    HOLLYM48 may kmow how CLAIREINPARIS is doing, She did a blog about her visit https://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_

    I used to read her blogs too. You described her well.

    Sad about the in-laws neighbour. I read about that, it was posted in facebook.

    Sounds like you were quite busy with the granddaughters. Did you learn anything you forgot? emoticon

    Hi Jibbie. So nice to hear from you again.
    Glad you are staying safe at home. How is the home schooling going?
    Our preppies, grade 1, years 11 & 12 started school this week and the
    other grades go back on the 25th. We have done really well in Australia.
    Less than 100 deaths and 6500 cases, we also had a lockdown but now
    have a lot of the restrictions lifted but as we are heading for winter, we
    are hoping that it doesn't come back as it likes the cold apparently.

    Now for Claire... I used to love her blogs and have often wondered what
    has happened to her. It's been such a long time since we heard anything.
    I hope she is OK.

    Stay safe and we will get through this Covid 19. The whole world is in this
    together. emoticon
