Five things that made me happy today – 8/7/20

Dream of what the world, your world, will look like when this is over. Picture the people you will visit. The places you will go. Make it as detailed as possible. Don’t just see a picture in your head, but make it a movie.

1. The day started out pretty cool, but the sun came out mid-morning and it warmed up to about 70 this afternoon. It was really cool when I started out to walk this morning, so I got out a sweatshirt and, lo and behold, my missing mask fell on the floor. I guess it had gotten caught with static electricity and it finally let go.

2. I took a nice walk around campus this morning. The governor has modified some of the rules for senior living facilities, and the staff was out measuring distances at the Gazebo, and putting up chairs and tables under pop-up tents. I have hope.

3. Al and I had bratwurst and sauerkraut with red skinned potatoes for lunch.

4. Friday afternoons have traditionally been ice cream on the front porch of Lillian Pratt building, but not this year, because (you know) COVID-19. But they brought some ice cream around to us today!

5. I’m cautiously optimistic that Tacoma is starting to flatten the curve. Our 14 day rolling average for daily new cases has looked like this since the first of August – 31.9, 32.1, 31.8, 30.7, 30.9, 28.1. There was one day that the reports must have caught up with some unreported cases because new cases were 23, 26, 23, 17, 40, 12. But that’s what the rolling average is supposed to take care of.

How about you? What made you happy today?
