The only restaurant I've been in all year is a sandwich franchise - I place the order using my phone and walk in to pick it up and walk back out again. I may go to curbside pickup and have them bring it out after this. The new more spreadable COVID-19 is certainly here, even if they haven't tested for it specifically yet. It's the barn door closed . . .

Charmion, do you have any more editing projects coming up? What is your next Big Thing as far as your freelance work? I need to do a lot of work on my Dad's collection - you said you had some of CET's papers to work on? But that's a sort of inward project that lets you mull more than might be comfortable, so I hope you find something outside your household soon.

In the US we knew it was going to get worse before getting better with the inauguration - but now it looks like Trump is going to punish everyone with a government shutdown. I participate in a community fridge project four miles north of my home, and as cliche as it is, things like boxes of macaroni and cheese keep families fed in a pinch, so boxes will be added along with produce. I'm sure I've discussed this before, it's just that now it becomes so much more important. The local food bank also participates in these fridges by dropping off copious amounts of lentils and split peas - they usually leave a few dozen pound bags in the pantry section of the site. It appears that the time of Spam has arrived - salty enough to complement the peas in soup. I hope to contribute enough food there to keep one small family fed adequately if not elegantly.

Here at the house I'm thinking a project to finish before the end of the year should be the fence beside the garage. Progress reports to follow.
