"Just give me one thing that I can hold on to."

Sunny and warm today. I had another short walk. Fifteen minutes feels like an hour. Anyway, I said it was warmer, didn't I? Our high was 79˚F, and it's currently 65˚F, and my office window is still open.

I want to be writing, because I'd be better if I were.

I went from 2 p.m. yesterday until 2 p.m. today without speaking. It helped a little.

Tonight we watched the new episode of RuPaul's Drag Race and then back to Ozarks. I'm wishing we hadn't blown through five and a half seasons of Vikings in less than a month.


The news around here, of course, is that Kay Ivey finally issued a shelter-in-place order, and it went into effect at 5 p.m. this evening. We have 1,614 confirmed cases of Covid-19, with 376 in Jefferson County and 127 in Shelby County.

And I have a photograph of a rabbit that I'm pretty sure escaped from a Jeff VanderMeer novel.
