Fave Pic We went to a park last week and played Ticket to Ride New York before our nature walk.
Highlights of the past few weeks I took off last week for my mental health. As the COVID numbers rise and many of our friends going back to some semblance of business as usual, I’ve had to take a step back. As adults who like spending time together the issue isn’t really about us, but Gage, nine, who has friends who are going to camp and playing together in their neighborhoods. Mask-free of course. Trying to balance a childhood between social development and physical health is a challenge. And we received the plan for his private school, either you’re all in or your 100% at home with live streaming of the classroom only. I’m now considering other options. Stressful decisions need to be made.
On the plus side, our library opened. I used to spend hours there multiple times a week, but with local COVID numbers on the rise, I’ve decided to focus on a different way. I go in, grab a few bags of books, bring them home and try to sell them on our FB page. I go back to the library to put the holds for customers on the shelf and grab more books. Keeps my exposure lower, but it involves more trips to the library. I’ve also been filling our local Little Free Libraries with books from the library.
Gage had a bike play date with a friend this week with another one with a different friend planned tomorrow. I think I enjoy the time with the moms maybe even more than he enjoys the biking.
Because the numbers in the area have been going up for weeks Jason has been working from home full-time again. I admit that I like the arrangement. He ordered himself new office furniture this week so I think he sees it as the new normal. He also gave himself a haircut which frightens me. He has a Zoom call with a new client on Monday so hopefully my mom can fix the damage.
Books finished Kearsley was delightful, as always. The audio was a nice diversion to the real world.
Currently reading It’s intriguing so far. Back into my morning devotionals and this one is perfect for the time we’re living in.
Currently listening Fun!
Read to Gage Jason and Gage love to talk about space, so I think Gage knew more about Galileo going into this book than I did!
On the TV We breezed through Bosch season 5 on Amazon Prime. We started the second season of Hanna on Prime and watched a few more episodes of Dead To Me season 1 on Netflix
Movies watched I never got around to reading the book but we liked the movie.
Plans for the weekend Our good friends finally have their pool ready and we’re probably going to go since it’s big and everyone can stay socially distanced and still have fun.
