What’s Going On Wednesday: A Good Day

It’s late but I’m trying to stay consistent with these posts for now. Also, today was a good day and I’d like to document it.

Of course, part of the reason I’m posting every Wednesday is to keep a record of sort during this pandemic time. So first, the yucky stuff. And confessing, I’m also posting late as I didn’t want to look at all this prior to going to work today.

Numbers and COVID-19 Info for Our Area

Cases statewide:  15,187

Total deaths: 848

Total Tested*

PCR tested:   251,629 (fancy term for nasal swab testing)

Serology tested:  30,893 (fancy term for blood test for antibodies)

*They’ve changed the reporting on these numbers. Now dividing out the two types of tests. Actually, the whole website is updated and in a dashboard format. A lot easier to read and understand.

In the Kansas City Area:  1,626 and 28 deaths

Our local county: 752 and 22 deaths

And the number of cases within our zip code:  72

Now, let’s move on to the good things about today and my gratitude list.

Gratitude List For This Week

Specific to today:

Fantastic weather for being outside.

A wonderful return to work for a half-day. I missed that place and those kids so much!

We all sat and ate dinner together at the table! (Yes, we’ve all been home but it’s been a while since we all sat around the table together at dinner time)

Plans made to see friends next week.

Lots of time spent playing my silly little video game tonight.

And G got the cat to come inside for the night so I didn’t have to mess with her. It’s the time of year when the weather improves and she doesn’t like to come inside at night without lots of persuasion.

From the rest of the week: 

Seeing hummingbirds at the hummingbird feeder. It may just be the same one each time but that’s okay as well.

My husband cleaning the kitchen last night. Add that to what made today a good day because I’d have probably left the mess and been sorry this morning.

Time spent soaking up the sun on Sunday. And a power washed front porch!


I’m sure there are lots of things I’ve already forgotten. However, I’m ending here as it’s 10 minutes past my bedtime. Also, if I don’t end this post soon, it risks becoming a what’s going on Thursday post instead. Can’t have that.

What are you grateful for this week?

      Yes, I was excited one came to visit our feeder. Now, I just hope I can get a decent picture of one. Thank you. Happy Thursday!
