Days 3 and 4.
Well….let’s see. What to write about, when I am stuck in my house and yard for days, with no visitors. Not so different than any other week, lol.
I have been on the phone an inordinate amount lately. Mostly texting, but some calls. A group chat with my Iowa girls. An ongoing text chat with my Wednesdames group. Conversations with both my sisters. Yesterday and today, it took at least 3 hours out of my day.
I put together a grocery order for delivery and got it yesterday. I ordered a bunch of stuff I needed to make this soup I like, and haven’t made in a long time, Spicy Thai Coconut Chicken Soup. So good. I made it last night. Had it again tonight!
Yesterday I made an appointment for a COVID test this morning. I was able to do it myself, at the drive-up pharmacy at Walgreens. I think I’ll get the results tomorrow. It was simple and quick. I sat outside on the deck and read, at least until I got on the phone. After lunch I trimmed the dead leaves off of my ginormous Peace Lily. It doesn’t like the cold we have had for the last 10 days, in the 40’s at night and many days in the 50’s all day. Maybe I was able to save it, but we’ll see. Today was a perfect day, in the 70’s this afternoon. After I was done with the plant I read for awhile, and fell asleep outside, til Dan called. It was just so nice.
Tonight I watched this great documentary on Netflix titled “Echoes in the Canyon.” It is all about music, of the 60’s and 70[‘s, kind of starting with the Beatles but more about all the great bands after them, who were influenced by them. But also who they influenced, like the Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, The Beach Boys, and interviews with Tom Petty, Eric Clapton, David Crosby, Stephen Stills, Neil Young…I could go on and on. They were the giants of my day, the sound track for an entire generation. If you remember those days, check it out. It was amazing.
So that was the end, now I’m watching TV and kind of wondering what I’ll do tomorrow, here alone. Gotta think of something good I can make for New Year’s dinner, you know to usher out 2020 and greet 2021 with as much enthusiasm as I can, despite me not trusting it to be a huge improvement over 2020. Although I can walk now, so it should start out better, just for that fact. And I started out last 2020 so sick, with what I think might have been COVID even last December and January. I was really sick for like 3 weeks, and still coughing for 3 more. Classic symptoms, but it wasn’t officially in the country then, though now they are saying it was here long before they realized it then.
Whatever. I hope for a better year in 2021. For all of us.
Love and light to all, on this Eve of New Year’s Eve.
