I have remembered what I did about the fence post footers. I dug them out on one side then took the 2-pound hammer and a concrete chisel and knocked off enough of the base until I could lift it out of the hole. Two down, two to do. I started digging around them this afternoon but it was getting hot, so I changed course and got the battery-operated reciprocating saw and trimmed some of the privet that needs to be removed from the back of the yard. I stashed it on the creek-side of the fence until next month when we get another bulky waste pickup.
A friend in the next state over wrote and asked if I would sell her face masks, since her sewing machine isn't working. I talked her through how to clean the bobbin case and shuttle and then to go ahead and clean and lubricate the machine and see if it will work again. I'll send her masks if she still needs them, but I think she'll enjoy the victory of reconditioning the sewing machine herself and starting to make her own masks. I expect to hear soon if it worked or not.
Reheated Mexican restaurant take-out this evening. It took a couple of tries to figure out the system (order online, wait in one of the numbered parking spaces, call and let them know you're out there.) Usually someone is standing in the parking lot and just goes and gets your order. Whatever works.
