For a while I was tempted to break my isolation and make a quick run to Trader Joe's, as I have no lettuce and I wan to make some tacos. Instead, I think I might wait and contact a nephew or niece and see, if they are going out to a store anyway, i they can bring me a few items. I don't want anybody making any special trips for me, especially since I read an article (in The Guardian I think) about how even though people in their twenties, thirties and forties are less likely to die from COVID-19 than older people are, they frequently do require hospitalization, an often need the ICU. I'm going to advise the kids (some of whom are in their fifties or older) not to go out at all if they can avoid it. Almost no testing has been done in California, so the actual rates of infection are probably much higher than we've been told. This is probably true of the whole country. It's been a massive screwup by the authorities.
I think I'll try to figure out a substitute for lettuce on those tacos. I've got some cabbage. Maybe I could shred some of that. Anyway, I made something else for dinner tonight (Wednesday.) Now it's Thursday, and guess what? Vernal Equinox! Day and night are to be of equal length. Also you're supposed to be able to balance an egg on its end at the right moment (8:49 PM here), but I don't know if that actually works. If I remember, I might be bored enough to try it.
Right now I'm really tired. But I think everybody is tired these days. I'm missing getting exercise. This place isn't long enough for decent pacing. I'd go out and walk up and down the driveway for a while, but it's too cold again tonight. It will be a bit warmer today than yesterday, so maybe the mockingbird will show up. I hope so.
