A few days ago I celebrated Pink Saturday just a block from home
Blossoms are everywhere and the medians on Broadway are especially pretty this year. It may be the saddest spring I can remember, but the blossoms are extraordinary.
This picture was taken just a block from home. On the right is a food delivery truck -- our lifeline -- and on the left, more beautiful blossoms.
Looking downtown on Broadway, noon today
Yes, it was cold, wind and rainy this morning, so the weather wasn't conducive to essential errands
or walking for exercise, but the street wasn't that much emptier than most days. It was, though, eerily empty for noon on Sunday. And yes, I was out walking for exercise. I entered no stores, I wore a mask and latex gloves. When I got home I took off my shoes at the door. I then washed the gloves -- in case I had inadvertently touched anything -- and then washed my hands. After that I took off my coat. It's cumbersome, but as the days are going by, it's becoming routine.
Somewhat to my surprise, the days go by quickly. Today I had a fun Zoom get-together with friends around the country, spent time cooking and watched two episodes of an Australian mystery. I decluttered, made a few phone calls and responded to a lot of text messages. I read newspapers on-line and listened to the Elton John television special while I worked on this post. How was your Sunday?
As ever, thanks for visiting and take good care of yourself. Much love, wash your hands and don't touch your face.
