  1. The start of my last week at work. Retiring was a difficult decision, but once made, I found that I was looking forward to it. Of course Jo had to shame me, since I am the same age as her.

  2. 😦 Another wise, splendid couple from our church is moving away. Grieving yet again.

    πŸ™‚ Biography is out to Beta readers. It should only be minor tweaking after this.

    😦 I am now really antsy to GO SOMEWHERE.

  3. πŸ™‚ A much needed 3-day weekend (Friday was a vaca day as my time was ‘capping out’)

    πŸ™‚ A long night’s sleep (which provides needed knee and pandemic relief and escape)

    😦 I’m starting to look forward to going to bed early a little too much these days; dreary times

    πŸ™‚ Planning a short, careful, outdoor, socially-distanced meetup with a couple from church later today

    πŸ™‚ Tess is better, vet thinks this is probably an arthritis issue and we are already on the meds for that for her as of Friday

  4. πŸ™‚ Nice, open-air visit with my friends who live just of the road I brought Kim into town through. Gorgeous, full ocean view. Good to see and talk to people I haven’t seen since the ‘lockdown.’

  5. Stargazer is moving back to Seattle in a few weeks. He’s renting a basement near beautiful Gasworks Park, about 3 miles northwest of the chaos.

    He’ll be living alone for the first time, at 33.

  6. We met my daughter and SIL and the four grandchildren today to deliver some gifts bought way back in February. They ate a McD’s lunch while we socially distanced and visited. We haven’t seen any of the grandchildren since Christmas, a couple far longer. We are blessed to see pictures often and of these grands daily. Not the same as being with them, though. It was a short visit, since they were really coming up to visit my SIL’s mother who was almost dead from pneumonia. She is younger than me, but had cancer a few times, a terrible car accident and suffers from arthritis to the point of not walking anymore. She is doing therapy. The kids have been reluctant to come because of the chance of passing Covid on, but they didn’t think they could wait any longer. They are not staying with her. She and her husband (an agnostic at best) could use prayer.

    The rules for Covid make it difficult for people to visit in the hospital. She left without doctor’s orders. This had been an ordeal for the last ten years for her and her husband who is her caregiver.
