If anyone has been following my son’s challenging move to Kansas then you will be happy to know that he is finally IN Kansas. His car stayed at the dealership in Albuquerque and will hopefully be delivered to him soon. We were all so grateful that my friends were able to help him out while there.
The pup and I are partial to morning walks but lately it’s been a little warm and she has been fussy. Honestly, I have been too. You wake up, get dressed, do the hair and then as soon as I step outside my hair turns into a frizzy disaster. It’s been a little humid for us. Anyway, so now and then we do an evening walk and if we are lucky, we are rewarded with a skyline like the one you see above.
I am nearly through with Count the Ways by Joyce Maynard. It’s very good. Even with all the stress from my son’s move, I’ve managed to sit down with it and it’s been a treat to take my mind off of real life even if only for a little while. What Comes After is next on my list officially but my library hold for The Paper Palace came in and I am much more in the mood to read that.
I have to say something about vaccinations. Here, in California it seems like we are headed for another lockdown. For ten days in a row, LA County has had more than 1000 positive cases of the Delta variant and according to the article I read, 99% of those are unvaccinated people. If you don’t want to vaccinate, that is your choice. But do not blame the new mask mandate, or the looming shutdowns on the recall election coming up for our governor, or the government trying to control us by injecting chips into us. It’s nonsense. If you don’t want to vaccinate, don’t but leave it at that. Don’t call the vaccinated “sheep” just move on and it would be great if you waived medical services once you come down with it.
I received a travel advisory about quarantine for my upcoming flight. Restaurants, who just removed their outdoor dining spaces are now adding them back. We are going backward and it’s super frustrating.
