It started cold this morning, but the weather got better as the day went on. We ordered lunch from Gyro World both as a treat and a break from routine. Specific patterns of behavior are essential, but when everything is constant, it can become perfunctory and lead to depression. To that end, we were able to turn off the TV for a while, go for a walk, and sit in the yard to read a book. Pleasant enough, but not something I am looking forward to doing for unending days, weeks, and possibly months ahead.
Once again, I have avoided the constant coronavirus news updates, and I don’t need to hear and see the same thing over and over and over again. I don’t even know if Congress was able to get off the dime today. Has Speaker of the House Beavis and Senate Minority Leader Butthead still keeping their slimy little fingers in the dike holding back relief badly needed by the average American.
There are two other things to make today a little different. A virtual Parish Council Meeting via teleconference this evening. And I have been asked to write the Sunday Reflection for or Parish Website and Facebook page. Maybe I will share it in this space on Sunday. I’ll see how it turns out.
Stay safe. Stay Healthy. Stay home.
