I dropped off recycling at the city hall dumpsters; I had ripe bananas so made a double batch of banana bread, baked in small pans that I distributed to neighbors and my ex. And I went by the city compost site and picked up a contractor's bag full of prime mulch.
Yesterday I started clearing out the garden around the garlic that I will soon harvest and then I can plant that area. The mulch will go in that area to start with. And, I drove by a friend's house and delivered some homemade masks. The one she bought from a neighbor was too tight on her ears. This whole exchange of stuff between friends is still complicated. I sat about 8 feet away on her front porch while we visited, and held up the different styles and fabrics of masks from a box I took with me, then put three in a plastic bag on the table, weighed down with a pair of pruning sheers sitting there. And when I left she took the bag and masks to drop in the sink and give everything a good soapy wash.
I've been watching television with an eye to backgrounds (rooms at home where journalists set up their computers, tablets, phones, or cameras) and looking to see how their hair is doing. There are several who don't look changed at all, maybe they have access to network makeup and hair staff. Right now there's a reporter with a long rather interesting gelled hair style that I think means he really needs a hair cut–it's quite a flowing mane. I trimmed my own bangs, but the rest of it continues to grow and as long as I can braid it, I'm fine.
