Usually, I share these posts on Wednesdays. However, I worked all day yesterday so I’m a day late. Plan for today is errands. Already went to Target. Thought I’d get this post done while taking a quick break for lunch and to put my phone on the charger for a bit.
I don’t like to run around with my phone at a low charge. And I used to have a car charger. SIGH. No idea where the phone chargers go. Maybe the same place as lost socks?
The week seems to have gone by in a bit of a blur so far. Before I share what I’ve been up to all week, here’s the yuck part of my post.
Numbers and COVID-19 Info for Our Area
Cases statewide: 16,625
Total deaths: 909
PCR tested: 290,931 (fancy term for nasal swab testing)
Serology tested: 35,349 (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: 1,802 and 30 deaths
Our local county: 916 and 22 deaths
And the number of cases within our zip code: 121 (Wait, that’s a big jump from last week! Noting here that the big increase in the number is due to two outbreaks at separate congregate living facilities within our zip code.)
Now, let’s move on to happier thoughts…
My busy, whirlwind feeling week so far
Monday, I trimmed the Goliath boxwood bushes in front of the porch. Then, took J to his baritone lesson in the evening.
I decided that fairy gardens were going to be my new hobby. Mainly, I’m just adding little doors to our tree bases at this point. I loved the details in the one I set out by our front yard maple tree.
Tuesday evening, G made us chicken strips for dinner with minimal instruction and supervision. They turned out great!
Yesterday, I worked a full 8:30 to 5 shift. It was hard and exhausting ( I was the “Chef” for the day) but extremely rewarding. Hoping I’ll get a few more chances to work prior to the next time I’m scheduled which isn’t until late July. So grateful to have such a happy place to call my work.
We rescheduled my mom’s night out for next week. That worked out as I was quite tired last night (originally, I thought I worked Friday not Wednesday when we were making plans). And I finally managed to “sell” the already cooked pork chops in the freezer for dinner last night.
This morning, I ran to Target. And just shopped. Clearance aisles included.
That probably explains how I spent a bit too much money despite them still being out of several items I needed. (Side note: Were the people not washing their hands prior to the pandemic the same ones who were evidently not cleaning their homes? Ugh, I miss my Method cleaning supplies!)
Finally, this afternoon I’m running the rest of my errands. Plans and places include: Tractor Supply Store for bird seed (and a check for a sprinkler for a Father’s Day gift), a small flower stand down the road a bit, and possibly if I don’t run out of steam, Hobby Lobby and/or The Dollar Tree.
What’s going on with you this week?
