So here we are at the top of the week or the bottom of the week or however it is you want to view it. And what a week it’s been.
As of right now, trump has decided the way to prove how fit he is is to have a “medical examination” on television. Like it’s a reality TV episode.
The very fact that he thinks this is a good idea is ample evidence of his unfitness.
Meanwhile we’re sunny but hazy, and that describes many things at the moment, I’d say. I ordered a tart pan, because that’s just how things are now, I live through bakeware, and I’m eyeing the crochet I haven’t touched in months.
I think I’m getting ready for another lockdown, if I’m being honest. The numbers in the US remain grim, and I only see it getting worse after all this with trump.
Anyway, that’s it for me on this Friday. Have a good one and a wonderful weekend.
And it’s foggy again, with sunshine behind. I don’t know how she’s doing it, but Mayor Lightfoot seems to have even the weather on a tight leash.
Yesterday was a bad day with deaths here in Illinois, our highest total yet, 73. And I type that with the fear that the number could, at some point, sound very small. I hope the sheltering in place is working.
Even though we find ourselves with all of this time, it sometimes feels hard to make efficient use of it. And maybe that’s just fine.
I’ve had issues come up, and I have to do this complicated calculus of what risk is the best risk. Go for solutions that may not be complete solutions, but they’ll do, at least for now, at least until this ends.
This isn’t easy, and it’s frightening, and perhaps the scariest part of all is the man foisted in charge by an outside force that only wants the worst for us, and that man tries, time and time again, to make it all as terrible as possible, all while making himself rich.
Not the best of times, though maybe it’s time to reread A Tale of Two Cities.
Anyway, have a great Wednesday, and give yourself a break. You’re doing the best you can with what you have.
