Covid-19 Shutdown Diary Day 26: More store changes for the good
Connecting while Distancing - Chatted briefly with my friend from across the street and another neighbor who was also out walking her dog. Called our DIL for her 50th Birthday!
Carrying On - Went to Vons for the first time in over 2 weeks. Good changes - one way aisles, senior/disabled shopping hours from 7 to 9 each weekday morning, sneeze guards in front of cashiers, all staff wearing masks. And surprise, although we don't need any they actually had some toilet paper and paper towels and paper goods were the only items with limits. Still some empty shelves in the canned goods area, but overall in pretty good shape. Picked up a nice bottle of wine to go with our take out restaurant anniversary dinner tomorrow night.
I saw that the VOX news online book club picked "Ehe World Economic Forum rated it the #1 book to read for context on the coronavirus outbreak. I bought the Kindle version as it sounds like a pertinent science book to read at this time and I need a science book for my book group challenge. It is considered a textbook so it may be heavy going - we will see.
It was an overcast, brisk, occasionally drizzly day so I did the laundry, took the dog for a long walk and read some more. I'm thinking I should make some more masks so if one of us gets sick there will be enough to wash, dry and wear at the same time. A good project for this weekend.
Thankful for - The food and other supply chains that are bringing most of what we need and much of what we want to the grocery and drugstores. Now if they will just figure out how to NOT have farmers throwing away food because of changing patterns of demand around the country!
