Waiting…

How does one pass the time during one of the most unnerving days they’ve experienced in U.S. history? This one mostly distracted herself. I placed a grocery order & had it delivered (lotsa vegetables), took a 30-minute aerobic walk, watched the last episode of a DVD of American Vandal, and puttered in the yard.

I made a no-frills screen feeder to add to the “Bird Feeding Station” out of 4 lightweight, small boards nailed together with a spare piece of window screen stapled to the bottom. To hold it I initially tried four same-length pieces of wire (attached to 4 tiny eye hooks I screwed into the corners) but that didn’t work right so I just used string for now (it’ll probably need to be replaced down the road).

It held peanuts earlier in the day & the birds seemed at ease hopping in to get them

I mostly avoided the TV but happened to turn it on to catch Biden’s first speech, an encouraging (and emotional to me) bit of business.

Lastly, it’s a unusually mild, lovely day. I captured a honey bee – in November! – on my bird seed sunflower.

        For the past few months I have not had the concentration to read a book so no one is more surprised than I am. I will most likely finish it today so I’m hoping we get a decision. I’m curious how well the drug companies are doing. There must be an uptick on anti-depressants this year.

          Upticks on alcohol, junk food, etc, I believe, so anti-anxiety meds & sleep aids probably selling well too. After NJ passed a marijuana law Tuesday, “how to roll a joint” was apparently the #1 google search there in the subsequent 24 hrs.

          Looks like you might need another absorbing book!

      Thanks! The birds seem to appreciate it. Your activities sound very nice, relaxing to boot. I can only go so many hours today w/o checking the news. I watch a little, then turn it off. Even when it’s decided, I don’t want that to be my whole focus. Life is still out there…
