I slept in this morning. Everyone is still asleep right now (it’s 7:08), but probably up soon. It is pouring! It would be a lovely day to stay home and see patients from my bedroom, but I definitely have to go in. (Added an emergency in-person patient + need to see multiple hospital patients).
It is day #4/7 of call. It feels like day #9 or something. It has been busy. BUT I got to sleep without interruption last night by some miracle so I am happy and feeling ready to take on the day.
And . . . (drumroll) . . . the local papers are reporting that our county (along with Miami-Dade, our neighboring county to the south) will be starting phase 1 of reopening this Monday. Does that mean this series is over? Clearly the pandemic is not over, I certainly recognize that. But our local cases have trended downwards.
My hair stylist (also small salon owner) called me to book me for straightening (taking only one client at a time, screening procedures, following regulations, masks required, etc). I’m sure he is very eager to get some business back again. I’m debating but leaning towards going in ~2 weeks or so. Would you go?
Here are Dade County’s recent #s (where my salon is):

Modern Mrs. Darcy’s Summer Reading Guide is here! I had a great reading experience choosing ~10+ titles from her list last summer and plowing through them. I’m not sure I’m going to be quite as ambitious this time, but there are some seriously juicy-looking novels I have my eye on.
I am definitely going to spend some time this weekend picking titles from the list. Just hoping that libraries will start reopening for pickup!!!!
PS: I finally finished Mason Currey’s Daily Rituals: How Artists Work. I have his companion How Women Work, but I need a break from reading about other people’s rituals! It was an interesting read, though.
