On Thursday we went early to do our grocery shopping again, with very few other shoppers in the store at 7:30. We were happy to see more protections for the clerks. Our Thursday guy is now protected by double masks and a Plexiglas barrier. I worry about him and told him so. He thanked me.
Thursday I also did the home accounting and paid the bills. I was once again grateful for a stable income. I used a bit of the stimulus deposit to help pay off the rest of the property tax, and the rest went into the savings account. That day we got a letter from The Donald, apparently so that we could thank HIM for the stimulus deposit, since we didn't have a check with his name on it. After debating its proper treatment, I ripped it up and put it in the trash. It seemed the most appropriate. At least the Postal Service got some business, paid for by the Treasury Department.
On Friday we had another Zoom meeting with our breakfast group. Our "elderly" ladies are finally grasping the technology and we had a fun meet up. Each day we have been working in the garden in the afternoons, and May Day here was lovely.
This morning, Saturday, I walked out to get the newspaper and then wandered in my garden, picking flowers for a new little bouquet. The air was fresh and the birds were singing. I was happy to have fresh flowers for my breakfast table.
The weather forecast called for a hard hitting wind and rain storm this afternoon, but so far here south of the city, we have just a gentle rain.
My exercises and bike workout are done for the day. I can smell the pot roast in the oven. I have a good meal to cook, a good book to read, a favorite TV show to watch this evening, and a good man by my side. I am grateful.
