ON THE BACK BURNER

June 13

Yesterday seemed so long. Today had the same number-of hours and it flew by.One thing that helped is that I  made myself stay in bed until  5 AM. How do people do it. Dixie is not in a hurry to get moving. She usually just changes position and looks at me. It was usual for me to take my second cup of coffee with me when I walked a dog.I tried that the other day and  had to laugh at myself. I had a face mask on. Since I have  yet to see anyone while doing this early walk, I put the mask down under my chin. It felt good to drink and walk under this canopy of greeness. Later , on another walk, I met a woman that I had met last year and who we would walk our dogs together.She had told me then that her family was being used in an early Alzheimer’s study.    She looked the same, her dog was the same. She didn’t  know me. Dixie and her dog took an immediate dislike to each other. We said that we would work on that issue. I watch the number of confirmed Covid 19 cases in Sarasota county and then I look at the number of cases here in Port Townsend. 0 here. That is encouraging to me. There is a wonderful pizza place that is doing carry out. I almost feel ready to order a pizza. But not quite.4 days to go and I can be in the same room as my family.Think I’ll order a pizza to celebrate.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.
