Day Zero

There are still dinner dishes to be washed (a real dinner made with stuff bought today that needs to be used fairly quickly— there will be several of those in a row) but I am exhausted, and I think I might just leave them until tomorrow. I got the banking done and got to three stores. I still need to go to two other stores, but had to put that off until tomorrow today as well. The stores were busier than I'd expected them to be, and there was quite a bit of traffic out.

A couple of days ago the County health department crowed that there had been no new cases of COVID-19 here in a week, and I think the local optimists all took that as sign that it was safer go out now. As a result, I'm expecting a spike in cases in a couple of weeks, and I hope I'm not part of it. But I've only gotten part of the stuff I need, and if I don't get it now I'll have to go during the spike, which would be worse.

A little while ago I heard two cars in a row drive along the bike path. Since I can't see over the fence I don't know if they were police cars or not, though the police do sometimes drive along the trail, and I've never known two cars to pass by seconds apart. I don't suppose I'll ever find out. It is a time of mysteries. I wish it was over.

Anyway, exhausted. I think it would be best if I just went to sleep now. I'll feel better tomorrow when I'll get to drink orange juice again, and eat a breakfast donut, and then have some iced tea with fresh half-and-half in it. It's my routine! Back again! At least for a while. Now if only the pollen would quit making me sneeze and giving me a runny nose. And if I yawn once more I'm sure to dislocate my jaw. Goodnight, Internets.
