Another week of a pretty much regular routine splashed with anxiety and random mask wearing. And lots of handwashing & sanitizer!

Zoom church on Easter Sunday. VERY WEIRD! But we had communion (I didn’t have wine OR juice, so I drank a grapefruit LaCroix). It was nice to see some of our usual church suspects!
I worked on a stash-buster project. The flower is about 9 ½ inches across. I’m not too sure what I think about it. That’s how stash-busters are to me – the colors are not ones that I would have chosen. And the amount of yarn dictated the order in which I used them. Just weird. But it kept me out of trouble for an hour or so.

Your weekly Roy.
I worked from home & it was so nice to sit on the deck during my lunch hour & crochet.

Thought my hair was kind of cute today.
They gave us a couple of different masks at work. I gave one of them to Dr. M & he was trying it on. I also made one of those ear savers, but I’m not too sure about it. We’ll see if it really works.

Here we are, right in the middle of Bang Grow-Out Central. I look at this picture & think, oh come on – a little trim never hurt anyone! I just have never liked how I look with my bangs pulled back, which is why this phase is so dangerous.
Flowers! This is blue phlox, our knockout rose, azalea, and our little peach colored rose.

So when I get on the elevator at work I always try to punch the 3 button with my elbow. Lately I apparently can’t aim so I’m hitting 2 and 3 simultaneously. So I’ve had some nice leisurely rides.
Speaking of not being able to aim… Fortunately, the parking lot was mostly empty (it’s never full, and now lots of employees are working from home).
Date night dinner! Dr. M fixed some delicious salmon. Yum!

It was a lovely day! No planes in the sky, finished the square I’d been working on, Roy came by for a visit, and a cowbird checked out the bee waterer!
Just when I’d started feeling hopeful that we have all come together to fight a common enemy, the almighty dollar has raised its ugly head again in the form of demonstrations (at least some of them organized by right wing groups) to open the economy back up. What good is the economy if we kill even more people? And like I read someone else saying, it feels like interesting timing, coming just after we heard how devastating this virus is to people of color and the poorest among us. “Oh we don’t care about those people – we just want our money” I don’t feel like I’m articulating this very well. I’m mostly just sad.
