Not much to report today. The weather was lovely again. I was low-energy this morning, but I did manage to get my 30 minutes of run/walk in—trying to stay in the OTF green zone. I took an alternate route and ended up on the Wesleyan Arboretum trail. I had it all to myself, as the campus is “closed” even to those of us who used it for exercise. I wonder why they did that?
To get a few necessities, I took my weekly trip to Publix. It’s pretty much the same—not too crowded, but not dead either. I still couldn’t find Snyder’s pretzels, and they were a bit low on meat, eggs, and butter—though I did get all three. It’s odd wearing a mask, but most people seem to be. Noticeably, most employees are not, but they’re either distanced behind counters or newly-installed plexiglass shields. They have arrows and exes for traffic flow down aisles, though some jerks seem to disregard them. While they’re doing a good job trying to project normalcy, it’s all a bit weird.
Caught up with some friend via our regularly scheduled Zoom cocktail hour tonight, though only the Meir y Terans showed up. Still it was fun. And I made daiquiris after picking up some rum at the liquor store. (If I go to Publix, I go to Carriage Hills. I also got a bottle of Evan Williams white label—their bottle-in-bond offering that I’ll crack open tomorrow.)
In all, a pretty good day.
