Ah... sleep happened..
Wednesday, June 03, 2020
I went to bed early last night and slept eight wonderful hours. I do not even recall when I last slept that long. Really. After the first grogginess, I was up and at 'em, glad that God provided what I needed.
I am up and doing housework and up and down the basement stairs. The basement is wonderfully cool.
Yesterday we took our absentee ballot applications to the township hall. A LOT of people were doing the same. I can guarantee that a lot more people will be voting this year, and differently.
Today is paperwork and bills, chores and staying in from the 86% humidity and 84 degree heat. We will have to go out to the street eventually and get the empty trash can and get the mail, but that will be quick. Breathing is a chore out there for us.
So far during this whole quarantine, the only people we have been in direct contact with, spaced and masked of course, are Nick and Monika. They know absolutely nobody where they live, so we all have been away from everybody except covered trips to the store only when necessary over a month ago, so we feel comfortable with each other. I think we may go back and enjoy another day with them soon. They are so busy working on their boat, that they hesitate to take even a couple hours away from that job.
I hope that things die down here in Michigan soon, for those who are homeless due to the floods amid covid and stress from Washington D.C.. It is very real when dealing with mental and physical stressors for prolonged periods. NOw we have to fear that a leader may send troops here to deal with people that are making choices that are not good for everybody. We live kind of far from the rioters, but the threats from "above" are another stress on all of us here.
