I actually enjoyed a taste of the real world for my birthday today. I was able to take my car in for overdue service now that the dealers in my area have been allowed to reopen. I took some knitting and sat outside in fresh air (breathed through a mask, but still nice). My car got some scheduled maintenance, inspected, rear brake pads replaced and the outside washed. I got some knitting done too while I waited. When I got home we called and ordered steamed lobsters and picked up a few other goodies and had linner or dunch if you prefer. Now I am going to have to sign in to my email and pay some attention to my students (hopefully not too long) and then snuggle with a poodle or two.
I am at my sister's house for a few days - we didn't stop hugging for at least ten minutes, and have managed a quick walk between the thunder showers. Champagne in the fridge, supper on the go (just think - eating food I haven't prepared!), and the dogs flaked out asleep after walk, tea, and chasing all the squirrels out of the garden.
