Church is going to reopen next Sunday, which is Pentacost, but I think the rules will enrage some. Yes, you have to wear a mask, but you also have to have your temperature taken before you can enter the sanctuary. You have to adhere to social distancing. All hymnals, bibles and any paper and pens have been removed. Everything will be wiped down between services.

Im not ready to head back.

Will you continue to worship from home? Are there other options?

Yes. I will watch the live stream of the service.

The church for which Fr. Richard has been doing services on Zoom has some parishioners who want to go to the building for worship, but many (including the priest, his wife, and the music director) do not.  So, Richard will continue to conduct the service in front of his computer, I will attend in front of mine, Amanda will play the piano in her living room and the people at the church will watch the Zoom broadcast on a jumbo TV.  How ridiculous is that?

My book group had a similar conversation last night.  Some wanted to meet on someone's large patio, wearing masks and sitting 6 feet apart.  I and most others said if we had to do that we'd rather continue Zooming.

I want a  small BBQ chicken salad.  Hold the chicken and add extra black beans.  A slice of anniversary cheesecake for dessert.

My CF order would be a Santa Fe salad, with ranch dressing instead of the peanut cilantro, and a slice of Dulce de Leche cheesecake.

The best news I heard today was that DR Vixmom and her brother are getting some help caring for their Mom.

Watched a bit of a movie, fell asleep for almost an hour, then took a drive.  I'm beginning to think the traffic spike IS because of Memorial Day.  The other reasoning, that people are just getting out to go on scenic drives doesn't make sense to me - why wouldn't they have done that from the start or four weeks ago or even two weeks ago?  The Memorial Day thing might also explain the gas prices going up by almost twenty cents.  I suppose we'll know the answer to that if they start going down again next week.

I got my new iPad this week.  I've never had anything "i"  I'm strictly andriod and PC, anyway, I got it because everyone else in the family Face Times  Mom and I are the only ones who didn't.  So I suggested getting one for mom and everyone thought I was nuts because my mom won't even use a digital camera and has never touched a computer.  Anyway, my brother and Krista got it set up for her and she loves it.   She's face timed with her great grands, with my bro and his family and with me today.  All my sister's kids have facetime so they are excited they can see her without driving 8 hours from Joplin. They can also send photos.  It's a good thing

I can't imagine returning to religious services right now when there are other options.   My only concern might be for the few people who are unable to figure out how to zoom.

I thought this was going to be a relaxing week with very little office work, but it turned out to be the opposite.  I had a few very busy work days - which is a good thing.

Keith prefers his Samsung phone to my iPhone.  He prefers his iPad to his old Samsung tablet.  I do not like the keyboard on my phone so passed on the iPad.

I got very disgusted with myself about the weight I've gained and signed up for weight watchers in the middle of the night on Tuesday, lol.  I'm glad I did and am already losing, but it's meant totally cleaning out the refrigerator and stocking up on totally different food.  At least my refrigerator is clean
