Today is day 12 of self-isolation for me. It was a pretty good day, all things considered. I started a new book (The Glass Hotel by Emily St. John Mandel), which was in the last delivery I got from my library before they closed the building and stopped circulating items. I'm about a quarter into … Continue reading Soup and books
I was exhausted yesterday and missed posting. I slept 11 hours Friday night, so my Fitbit tells me, but it sure didn't feel like it. I managed to walk the dog a couple times, get on the treadmill, vacuum and clean up around the house. I'm pretty sure I napped, though I'm having a hard … Continue reading Where did Saturday go?

I had to go out to … Continue reading My favorite leggings

Five people, including my manager and his manager, heard Opal purring while … Continue reading Day 6, or Tuesday, right?
Our pup Watson needed to have a procedure today, so my partner dropped him off at the vet this morning, and then went to the grocery store. We both went to the vet to pick him up this evening. He's okay, but groggy from the anesthesia and tired, too. He's wanting to be held all … Continue reading So I left the house today
