It’s been a few weeks. Sorry about that. I’ve been mostly getting back to near-normal, so there’s been nothing in particular to report.
I did want to update the COVID-19 numbers since the last post:
Horrible. About 18000 new cases just since my previous post.
And the Texas GOP was hoping to bring 6,000 people to their convention here in Houston at the George R. Brown Convention Center downtown. Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner finally cancelled it, said they can’t do it here. The local health officials called it a “clear and present danger” — not just to the convention goers, but all the people having to work the convention center, plus all the hotel workers, restaurant workers, taxi/Uber/Lyft drivers, and everyone else who might come into contact with the convention goers. Plus when those attending the convention carry the virus back home to their own families and communities. It’s insane to think they could have an in-person convention.
Oh, and the funny thing — while they expected people to attend the convention in person, all of the planned speakers were reported to be giving video-taped speeches, not speaking in person. Why? Well, because of the pandemic, of course. What the actual fuck??? The speakers can’t attend in person but they want all the delegates from around the state to show up in person?
Well, I failed to actually post this yesterday. Sorry. I’m feeling better today, so that’s a good thing.
Each day I do feel a little stronger and more able. My body still has weird shit going on sometimes, but I guess this is part of the recovery process.
It is beastly hot here, and just about everywhere else. Good thing about this weather is that my laundry loads are quite small. And with a renewed ‘stay home’ order (or at least masks required everywhere in public now, isolation, and strong suggestion to stay home if you can) I have no reason to get dressed. So, yaayyyyy for that, I guess.
I screwed up a custom dye job over the weekend, so I’m going to re-do that today. And then I have some orders to pack and ship tomorrow. And then I get to begin a new collection of Blog Reader Specials for the weekend, maybe slip in another of the custom dye jobs as well. We’ll see.
But for now, I guess I’ll post this up and get into the day’s tasks.
