Cooler and damp.
Yesterday was miserably hot and pretty steamy. Until the evening when the front came through and dropped temps into the low 70s and brought a bit of rain to clear the air.
I almost went out to bundle up some more sticks. Almost.
Instead I went to bed early. I’m still not feeling well, and I need extra sleep, which I’m not actually getting.
Spent yesterday hiding from the heat and doing as little as possible outside. I did clean up some of my pruned tree branches. I got the bird net put over the blueberries, so the humans might get a few more of the few berries this year.
Took the trash and recycling out, did a couple of loads of laundry. Domestic needs continue despite the isolation. I am wearing fewer shirts, since I’m not leaving the house and don’t need a ‘cover garment’. For everyone in the house, pajamas are getting a lot more wear 🙂
Dinner was pork roast from the freezer, mashed potatoes from scratch, saute’d cabbage and onions from the ‘last run’, tube biscuits, and gravy from a packet. Dessert was fresh baked cookies from frozen dough.
I didn’t get around to baking from scratch, but maybe today…
Oh, and can organizers arrived so I’ll be spending at least part of the day putting canned food away.
Folks, it’s only been a couple of weeks. We’ve got a lot more ahead of us before this thing is through. Cases are showing up in friends and relations, so we know it’s continuing to spread. I don’t think the “peak” is going to be anytime soon, although it might peak locally for some folks. But hey, what do I really know? I know I’m going to continue to isolate myself and my family and that will create hardship, but NOTHING like getting the virus and being hospitalized would. Aesop and RBT helped me get ready for just this sort of thing. It would be stupid to throw out the plan when we’re just getting started.
So stay in, stay safe, start your garden. And think about what you need to do if this continues…
