Papers and dry-erase boards on the fridge front have been removed, perishable contents left in there (with several large tubs of ice) have been removed to a cooler. The darned thing is like the pet you take to the vet, now acting just fine, though sick as a dog last night. :-( I'll ask the repair person to check the thermostat and replace the fan.

Today I flattened a dozen or more boxes that had stacked up near the side door in my sunroom. The way mail gets checked now, nothing is opened immediately; envelopes, magazines, and boxes just sit for a while before opening, and then boxes just sit out of the way.

Over the weekend I planted more of my garden and got out some seeds to start plants for transplanting later in the season. I still have beds to work on, but the first basic one is in. The "kitchen garden," right under the kitchen window.

My thrift store donation bin is gradually filling up; no thrift stores open right now. I imagine there will be a pent up supply when they do, and I imagine people needing things will descend on them as soon as they do open. That's a busy part of the economy that could probably have been categorized as "essential," considering the number of people who shop there for clothes, to repair or replace dead appliances, etc.

I have confirmation of delivery of a care package to a friend in NYC; more of the gloves like I sent to Michelle, and a couple of masks, and a variety of other things. My sister also received her masks. I also sent a packet of needles to another friend; when poking through Mom's sewing stash I found a gazillion sewing machine needles and had the size she needed.

Just had a call from the Sears service tech - Umberrrrto - he rolls his r's. He's working in the area and expects to be here in a couple of hours. Looking forward to having that fixed soon.
