It’s amazing how much has changed around here due to the coronavirus in the past week. I hope everyone is staying calm and healthy.
Amber’s home. Oberlin pushed Spring Break up and then they’ll be doing remote learning for the remainder of the semester. We’re setting up a corner of the finished basement as her art area and ordered a six foot tall easel, like the ones she uses at school.
As of 9:00 this evening, all the restaurants and bars in the state will be closed for dining, they can only do carryout and delivery. We’ve all seen the flattened curve by this point, let’s hope this social distancing works. It might be a long few weeks though.
David and I went to see The Chieftains with the Pittsburgh Symphony Monday, before everything was getting cancelled. It was an excellent show.
Next weekend is the #24in48 Readathon: The Social Distancing Edition. From the website:
Wash your hands.
March 21 & 22.
It’s that simple. No prizes. No hourly challenges. No requirements. Just a chance to reconnect with this amazing bookish community (online! no hand sanitizer required!), read some good books, and talk about them with other readers.
I’ll definitely be joining in. Any excuse to read is a good one.
Last week’s post:
- Flowers for the Judge by Margery Allingham
- A Shot in the Dark by Neil Richards and Matthew Costello
- Journey to the Center of the Earth by Jules Verne
- The Radium Girls by Kate Moore
I have a feeling we’ll be watching a few movies over the next couple of weeks. Friday we watched Bombshell, which was really good.
On tv, we’ve been watching Survivor and an occasional episode of Father Brown.
I like reading challenges, but I also do a couple of boargame challenges. The top one is 100 different games, once each, and the bottom is 10 games, 10 times each. So far I’m on track.
Looking forward to:
Probably a lot of staying at home, hanging out with David and Amber. And trying to not get sick.
