COVID Diaries: Day 333

Day 333.  Well that has a nice symmetrical look…

It’s the Valentine’s Day edition here, but really that means it is just another Sunday… 

I was supposed to have Friday off (my regular Friday off), but my employee wanted a vacation and I can’t blame her!  So I worked instead – I can take another day sometime soonish…  I did get a new employee hired, just pending the background check, so that was a nice start to the weekend!  Hopefully work will be back to its more normal frenetic pace soon.

It snowed Friday night, after much pondering by weathermen about whether or not we would get snow here.  We got up to about seven or eight inches!  Since then, some has melted, while at the same time it is still snowing.  It is pretty and peaceful and reminds me of my dad, who always loved the snow.

Yesterday afternoon I went out for a walk to enjoy treading through the fluffy whiteness.  I might do the same again today.  There is something so soothing about seeing the white fluff fall from the sky.  It’s supposed to warm up and turn to rain tomorrow, I think, but I will love it as long as it sticks around.

Things are starting to look up COVID-wise.  Our Governor is finally allowing our County to begin to open back up, with restaurants and entertainment allowed to open at 25% capacity.  It has literally been 11 months since anyone could go to a movie or museum around here – it will be pandemonium!  But wait, nevermind, because our only mainstream theater is Regal Cinemas, and they announced several months ago that they were temporarily closing all their theaters, so who knows how temporary that will be, or if they will be just another casualty of the lockdown…

I’m making progress on a 2000 piece puzzle that I got for Christmas!  Hard to believe it is twice as many pieces as the largest puzzle I have done before.  It doesn’t seem too tough – but I’m still probably only 30-40% finished.  It keeps me busy.  Cora remains ever helpful… 

How are things in your world?
