It’s the weekend! Which often in the Pacific Northwest means rain, and today is no different. We did have thunder and lightning to go with the downpour though, a rarity for us!
I can’t complain too much – we had sunny gorgeous weather for the last several days, and I did have a chance to sit on the deck with a book a couple of times, as well as to go on some long evening walks in the sun. I guess that just means that I need to work on some indoor things today.
Our Governor finally loosened the restrictions on case count that will allow my county to move into Phase 2 of reopening. County officials still have to submit the application and be approved by the state, but we now meet the criteria. Some non-essential businesses will be allowed to re-open with strict protocols in place. It is a start. My own work is phasing back into having more people on site, but it will still be a while before I’m in the office with any regularity. Cora appreciates that I will still be home most of the time!
And! Some camping will be reopening! There may be hope for some summer recreation and travel yet! Being stuck at home for the last two and a half months is taking its toll, so I’m so happy that we will finally be able to get out more.
