Welcome, family and friends, to Our Daily Journal, a remembrance for us, and a point of contact for you.
Share it with your friends.
After the sun crossed the night-to-day boundary, it was relentless. It jumped 7° almost immediately. It as as though it was in a hurry to reach its peak intensity. Between 3 and 4 today, it tickled the underbelly of 100°, when it reached 98°.We played a couple games of Rummikube today. We hadn’t played it in awhile.I think that the isolation has been getting to us more lately. We haven’t been playing games with each other as often. We are spending more time, earbuds in place and on our phones. I can’t (nor do I want to) imagine what it must be like for others who are so completely alone during this trying and tiring time. Call your family and friends.We also played Mexican Train dominoes. I forgot to capture a photo while the game as in progress. We only played from double 9 through double 6 before we tired of the game. It really needs more than 2 people playing before it becomes really interesting. My opinion.Ella sorted 3 weeks worth of pills into her pill sorters. As she did so, she found that she needed refills. She placed the order and we told it would be Friday before the order would bee filled. That was fine because it would be several weeks before they were needed.This evening, after I’d returned from the pharmacy, Ella received a text. Her pills are ready for pickup. They will have to wait for a while now. I’m not going to go back today. Maybe tomorrow. Maybe not.My prescription was already fulfilled today. That worked out great because I was able to pickup the pills while getting my glasses.My new glasses are very slightly different than the old glasses. Other than the obvious upgrade on my prescription, these glasses are also slightly lighter weight.The old glasses had full wraparound metal frames. These are “frameless” on the bottom half. Both sets of glasses would automatically color change in sunlight. The new ones change faster and in less direct sunshine.I think that the progressive lens us also different because it takes a moment to refocus when I switch from reading to looking away. There is also some difference in my peripheral perception.The biggest and most welcome difference is that, as the anti-glare film on the old glasses deteriorated, it flattened color and definition. It’s nice to have clearer color and better depth perception again.
Sunset on Mars?
