colder day

This week went pretty smoothly work-wise. I find myself busy, which seems to me preferable than being idle at home. Last evening after work we walked in Allen Station Park. The weather turned chilly. When I was a kid, the columnist for the now-departed much-lamented Arkansas Gazette used to call the  first week of April the Snow Tire and Jonquil festival.  I took a picture of an Eastern Bluebird, who looked cold.  In general, I find birds less worried about the cold than my own feeling. But this bird saw things similarly to me.

We watched the an episode of the new Chef Vivian Howard series "Somewhere South." I liked the coverage of Gullah culture, and the one dish that she did not personally like but respected.

The CDC just issued its mask recommendation. That makes sense to me. I lack a traditional mask, but perhaps a bandanna or scarf can assist.
I see eBay carries cloth masks, as, I feel sure, etsy offers an avenue as well.

That sense of being at the beginning of a wave that remains weeks from crest stays on the fringes of everything. I hope for good health and better times for all.
