Subject: RE: De-clutter & Fitness: House, job, life 2019 - 2020
I had a conversation with my daughter today, who was near the end of her patience with her boss, who continually walks into her office without a mask. The state has rules about masks in public, the county and city have rules about masks in public, and HR at her employment insists everyone wear them all of the time. My daughter has a preexisting condition that means she isn't able to fight off bugs as easily as you or I might. And she doesn't think she should have to tell him what her condition is for him to follow the rules and do her the curtesy of wearing a mask in her office. I've sent masks to a couple of the folks I worked with when I was able to go volunteer there; I'd like to resume that work but the numbers in our county have gone up, not down (and were higher than Dallas County this week.)

I'm putting my fitness tracker to better use these days, getting out to walk the dogs around the neighborhood. The old lab kind of drags by the end of very long walks, but I think that's mostly because they're out of the habit of the walk. We'll work up to longer ones, today's walk was a bit much because I miscalcuated the block I turned on at the top of the hill and had a long walk around it.

You remember a some months back I talked about that silicone floor cleaner, particularly good for cat and dog hair? I've been using it in my sewing room to keep up lint and pins and hair, but today I went through most of the house and came up with quite a stack of mostly Labrador retriever hair. It does work pretty well.
