Bow Tie Tuesday

I have a runny nose.  Sometimes a runny nose is just a runny nose?

Wish I were sneezing.  Sneezing is good.  Maybe I'll start sneezing.

I'm wearing a bow tie but no bra.  Or socks.  Ooh, maybe I should switch to socks and shoes, and that might stop the runny nose.

Trying to work at home is quite an adjustment.  My sleep is way off again, too, which doesn't helped.  Tossed and turned like crazy.  Slept only between 4 & 5:30 and 8:15 and 10:15.

Not that that's nuthin'.

The heat of the day will be around 5pm, according to this screen.  Here's to getting a lot of editing done before then.  I'll save astronaut Scott Kelly's (recommended by my counselor) piece on coping with isolation until later.


The toddler down the street.

Every day the toddler down the street is out practicing walking.  Righ tnow she's playing with the ribbon on the plant outside Bert's front door.  She has pink shoes on, so I can see her individual foot steps easily.

Both her folks are home with her these days.  Maybe they always are, I dunno.  I think one of them works for Toyota in some respect.  Can't remember what we talked about at the last neighborhood picnic.

Anyway, this virus time may be a very nice time for them.  Little one is out there a lot, too.  I wave when I drive by in the Jeep that currently has the purple polka dots on one side and the various-color flowers on the other.  I like to think I'm giving the little one the impression that cars may be interesting more often than is actually true.  :D
