I was awake at 4 am today. I love those morning hours before the rest of the house wakes up. Coffee and quiet.
A visit to the grocery store. When I got there I found I had forgotten my phone at home. That’s a good sign.
I’ve been in the routine of cleaning on Saturday mornings. I remembered today, my mom would clean on Saturday mornings. I can smell the Pledge. We also had baked beans every Saturday night. I can smell the beans boiling too.
I went out for a short walk. It’s always tough when you’ve had a couple of warm days and then the weather goes back to the normal temperature. Brrrrr.
I watched the sweetest movie this afternoon. The Kindness of Strangers. Just wonderful.
The return to normal is on the horizon. I’ve been thinking a lot about what that’s going to look like. It’s been a year now of pandemic living. I’m worried about re-entry. In many ways, this slow down was good for me. And I know I’m not the only one who feels that way. I won’t go back to the way things were.
I read this today:
Be proud of who you are, not ashamed of how someone sees you.
