My days are filled with less in the way of successes or progress or something to be proud of. I cook and then I eat what I cook. Pandemic or not, old white ladies must have our food. I admit that I am eating far more vegetables because I refuse to throw out good food. People are starving, you know!
If you think you have the worst of it these days please watch this 12-minute PBS report on a desperate journey following people who REALLY have the worst of it this year. I guarantee you will be very thankful.
I have completed my request for an absentee ballot. Hubby is driving it up to the election office to drop off since we can no longer depend on secure and speedy mail delivery. He will park outside the election office and phone from his car and they will come out to pick up the request. We can vote fairly early and there are election boxes to put your ballot into. We have quite a few spread across our county.
One of the counties to the north of us just shut down all their testing sites due to questions on the protocol they were using. Everyone who was tested in the last two weeks must now get tested again!
I have put in a request to see a specialist for my ongoing cough/allergy issue. It has not gotten worse but has not gotten better. I don't know if I can meet directly.
A TV doctor did say today that a child getting a serious Covid illness or dying from Covid is pretty rare, like getting struck by lightning or hit by a car. He did not mention that the child would be standing out in the middle of a thunderstorm or in the middle of the street to actually validate this comparison to going to an enclosed classroom every day.
Well, I must go and fold the clean sheets. I love having clean sheets on the bed! I am so thankful that I can do that, and the water flow to my washer is phenomenal, thank you very much!
