Day 50: Where is the time going?

I can't believe I've been out of work 50 day so far (not counting that first weekend as I said at the time). And no end in sight.

It is Star Wars Day: May the Fourth Be With You.

Also, sadder and more bitter, the 50th anniversary of the Kent State shooting. "Tin soldiers and Nixon coming, we're finally on our own." I was seven at that time, I don't remember anything about it from then. Not sure when I learned about it.

Today I ventured outside. Called Oldest Brother first, then had coffee, got dressed, and went out. The three things I had on order had all been delivered so I brought them in first.

Took out a bag of recycling, and went around the corner. Got a quart of green tea ice cream, then went to the discount store and got light bulbs for my bedside lamp. This time I took the dead bulb so I knew I got the right size. I also used the atm, which I'm not thrilled about doing (I only like using the ones in my bank, but sinc there's no branch near enough, that's not an option.). And I got a bacon, egg, and cheese on a roll from the bagel store.

Came home and had breakfast. Put the new bulb in my lamp, opened the packages. The Inchworm War and the Butterfly Peace is actually in better condition than my old one was. This one has the dust jacket. But the big thing is that the copy of Chrystallia is in absolutely perfect condition, has a piece of promotional literature tucked inside it, and is SIGNED BY PAUL MICHAEL GLASER! Wow! That being said, it still looks like it's probably poorly written. But I will read it anyway.

Watched the recording of the genre training for fantasy, and that was my work for the day.

After that I Skyped the FWiB, and we had a nice talk. He is going back to the oncologist for a checkup on Thursday so I'm nervous about that.

I sent Denise an e-mail to get a list of family e-mail addresses so I could try to bet a Zoom meeting for the Kid's birthday, like we did for Brianne's.

Then I went and read the rest of the last book in the N. K. Jemison trilogy, The Kingdom of Gods. Then I came out to the living room, charged my Nook, and downloaded the novella that's set in the same world. Working on that nw.

At 7:30 I had a glass of port and nursed it through a good part of the Thurber reading at 8:00. He read one of my favorites, A Ride with Olympy.

Had dinner, none of the ice cream yet, I'm saving that for Wednesday. After diner I started reading again until Oldest Brother called. His first day back at work went well, so that's good.

Then I fed Oreo and Christie and here I am.

Gratitude List:

1. The FWiB.

2. Got my beside lamp working.

3. Green tea ice cream.

4. Thurber.

5. It didn't rain while I was out, except for a few drops.

6. Star Wars, the whole series.
