“Stay at Home” Orders: Day 10

Apr 2, 2020 | Posted by in Everyday Jade | 1

So I’ve been calling it “shelter-in-place” orders that we (St. Louis city) have been under – apparently that is incorrect. We are under “stay-at-home” orders, and there is a difference. But honestly, not enough of a difference to matter, practically speaking. What does make a difference, and what changed recently (like within the past 24 hours) is recognizing what “social distancing” really means. And adhering to it. This was my life 24 hours ago: me, Adam, Felix (the dog) at home. Adam has an “essential job” so has to go out to a warehouse three or four nights a week, where he interacts with others, though they have tried to maintain distance between employees and enacted safe sanitation practices. Yesterday, apparently, they enacted an even stricter regimen, giving employees masks, gloves and taking temperatures before allowing them to work. Still his job is considered higher risk, in today’s world. Me,Read more …

14 Days of Isolation – Day 9

Edit: It’s now past that time, but I can’t keep track of days, and also I am bad at just writing and posting. It’s Day 9 of my Canadian Sir’s isolation/quarantine. I’m just glad he’s back in North America, though with the Canadian/U.S. border closed, and there being a 30-day shelter-in-place order here, it doesn’t look like we’re going to have that reunion weekend we’d been planning any time soon. It’s weird how seemingly overnight (really, inside of a ten-day period) all the things you thought you’d be doing, you aren’t. Inexplicably, out of nowhere, the world just…alters…around you. I remember those long days in Cuba like a dream. That was before anyone had even heard about this new virus in Wuhan. I also think about what fiction is going to be like after this: you’ll always have a “before pandemic” genre now, and “after pandemic.” Because you couldn’t writeRead more …

14 Days of Isolation – Day 1

Mar 19, 2020 | Posted by in Everyday Jade, Kink & Scenes | 3

I’m not in isolation…well, I am, sort of, but not in quarantine. Just doing the “right thing” to try and keep this thing from becoming more of a thing…civil liberties versus the common good, anyone? The Canadian (and my daughter), however are in serious isolation. I walked with her today, as she’s about 10 days out with no outward symptoms, and we kept a good distance apart, but even that I worried about. But still, it was needed. I have been walking daily to keep my sanity and this is her first time outside her house since she got back from Europe, and I think she was desperate for face-to-face interaction and some movement. It all feels surreal and… well, surreal. Like I said, it hasn’t hit here yet – at least we haven’t seen many confirmed cases – but of course that means nothing. If you don’t test, youRead more …

Jade in the Time of Covid-19

Mar 17, 2020 | Posted by in Being Poly, Everyday Jade | 3

Hey ho! Jade’s still here. Trying to keep all my pieces together, which seems a lot easier some times than others, but I’m hanging in there. It’s a strange new world, for sure. The pandemic is a thing. It’s affected a lot of the people in my circle. Some of us only in ways that inconvenience us, for others it is causing a great deal of financial uncertainty and anxieties. There’s a lot of fear about how this is all going to turn out. In my small corner, the daughter concluded her trip to Europe safely and got back into the states with a minimum of fuss. She’s on a 14-day self-quarantine, though, before she can be back in society and before they will let her back to work. (I’ve just heard that she’ll be working from home when she does, though. Thank goodness that she can do so.) TheRead more …

February 22 Make-Up – Accidentally Naughty

Today you’re going to get several posts to finish up the 2020 February Photofest. Yes, I missed 3 days outright. I made up one, the 22nd, in my 22nd and 23rd post, but V’s rules about it were that it had to be made up in a separate¬†post, or I still acquired a demerit-accruing consequence, so that means that I have to make up a post for that (today’s), plus post for yesterday’s miss (which will come next) and then I have today’s post after that. Then the Photofest is done, and I can go back to my normally sporadic posting! Ha. So here is the image that I should have posted. I finally (FINALLY!) opened my last box after the move. This box had been sitting in a corner gathering dust (literally.) It said, “glass and pictures” on the outside, and since I haven’t figured out a way toRead more …

February 26 – Nice at Home

I have no idea why I like this picture. I literally took it, like, an hour ago, to send to V. Just me, hanging out in my comfy clothes, enjoying a night at home making dinner, talking with Ad, playing with the puppy and doing chores. See images from years past here.

February 25 – Nipple Naughtiness

Feb 25, 2020 | Posted by in 2020 February Photofest, February Photofest | 1

I was actually doing something perfectly ordinary and nice – dressing down for a movie and couch snuggles with Adam and the dog. Nipples always naughty things up though, don’t they?¬†   See images from years past here. Check out the rest of the participating bloggers in this year’s February Photofest by kissing the lips below!
