Subject: RE: De-clutter & Fitness in a Pandemic: 2021
The shower was nice, but today was another really hot day and there may be a repeat this evening. We managed a morning walk and I've started the oldest dog on a 2x a day veterinary aspirin to help with some of his arthritis discomfort. He is always the slowest on our walks.
I'm reminded by the Courier thread that when it gets this hot I usually put an ice-filled cooler on the porch with bottled water, so I'll set that up for tomorrow. The rest of the week is supposed to be a scorcher (100o each day).
I have a list of stuff to do, but it was a kind of lazy day. Some reading, a nap, and picking up a little bit around the house. I have a couple of online courses to take that I'd like to finish by the weekend and I have some research to do for some docent work I'm planning to start in the fall at a local art museum. Today I found myself working on a note of congratulations for a former co-worker who was in the worst possible situation work-wise, such that I didn't even try to make friends, but I always felt like there could have been a friendship under different circumstances. She landed in the middle of a toxic administrative office, and I warned her before I left that if she didn't get out she'd be forever tainted by the other two in her administrative triad. I'm glad to know that she landed on her feet at the top post of the library in the institution she has moved to. This is the kind of note that says "I'm sorry we were never friends but I'm really glad you've moved out and I hope you make new friends." It isn't easy to write, but at the same time, I'm glad to be able to write it.
