Good morning, happy Saturday. Beautiful day out there. Rain expected this afternoon. Garden is starting out good tho I just discovered Lilly Beatles. Hoping a soapy oil mixture will do away with them.

Our part of the state will partially re open on June 5th. No gatherings over 25 people, curb side delivery preferred for restaurant patrons. I know I won't be sitting in a restaurant for quite a while.

Nature is happening all around me. A fox snagged a squirrel five feet from my kitchen window this morning. Yesterday, he was in a standoff with a mother deer and her new fawn. The fox was the one on the defense there.

We and my in laws normally host a big all day picnic bbq on Memorial Day Sunday. It started twenty years ago as a celebration of my wedding date and the kick off to summer. This year, with Covid restrictions and two deaths in the family, we are nixing it. It used to be an all night drinking beer around the fire event for me back in the day. It is very different not drinking, as I haven't for a number of years. Spending all day talking with people while sober is too much like work for me these days. Draining.

Have a good day all!

Rained overnight and cool rainy weather today.

My AS in prison asked if we are barbecuing or taking Gdaughter to the park. NO. They have rigorous precautions where he is also. He has no real idea what this has been like in the outside world. Hes in in for a huge culture shock if hes released to a halfway house in the future.

It is exhausting and a waste of time to be in people, places and things situations. I have let a friend drift away due to the drinking and endless cycle of drama.

Happy Sunday to all.

Good sleep and nothing planned but household chores.
Good rain yesterday has livened and greened up the yard.

Happy Monday Memorial Day to all.

Had a small scale bbq at in laws next door yesterday. Seemed weird being around more than a couple people, though we were in a big yard. Had a nice fire going all afternoon and well into the night. My wife is still super uncomfortable being around folks. I feel this is going to end horribly when all the restrictions are lifted.

Happy holiday to all!
