As a scientist, albeit a social scientist, I find the opening of massage, tattoo and nail salon businesses rather scary while new Covid cases remain at a high level as do hospitalizations. I know people need to earn a living but ....
Anyway, the good and bad from week 11 on a very local personal level.
I am so loving listening to Norah Jones' Youtube performance from her home.
I am so happy to have had a haircut - and I also really like it. New hairstylist is a keeper. I should text her and let her know I have had compliments.
We haven't had take out in 2 weeks. Lots of food in the frig.
