Really? Have you, or anyone you’ve ever known, tried to eat raw flour?
Then again, our own incompetent
King President recently suggested ingesting bleach to cure COVID-19, so maybe such a silly warning is, in fact, necessary.
New York State is slowly coming back to life. Five regions in the state are starting to reopen today – including those regions which contain Rochester and Syracuse (yay for you, Mark!). Erie County, however, still has growing hospitalization numbers, so we remain in total lockdown.
I’m ok with that. At this point, I’m not sure I even want to go back to work – although I’ll have to once the federal and state funds run out. It would appear that my return to work will coincide with Mother Nature finally agreeing to stop the rain and allow us some sunshine. Of course. I’ll get to go back to work at the exact same time the nicer weather is telling me to get out there and do something already.
I do have “real” masks now. Although the China-sourced masks are still maneuvering the U.S. Postal Service somewhere in this country (they did clear customs in Los Angeles, but no word since then), the Arizona-sourced masks have arrived. Apparently USPS simply never updated their tracking system to show that the masks were, in fact, on the way.
Meanwhile, the cooking, baking and video game playing continue. Even Puppy Cody is growing lazy. Thank heavens we have a decent sized yard in which she can chase bunnies and squirrels:
I have to be especially diligent when Cody is out there, because we’re into bunny mating season and last year (and the year before) she found the bunny nest before I could and ate one or two of the babies. Definitely not a fun time for me, although Cody seemed to enjoy herself (and her treat) immensely. Ugh.
Now it’s time for the highlights of my day – watching Gov. Cuomo’s daily news conference, and doing laundry. Probably no baking today, we are well-stocked with homemade cakes, cookies and rolls. I’m afraid to get on the scale since I wasn’t thin to begin with.
To those of you who are venturing out into a newly reopening world – wear your mask and keep your distance. The rest of us will be watching to see how things work out for you before we go out ourselves.
And to all my readers: Hugs. Stay safe and healthy.
