Thursday Thoughts

Took the Plunge
We went to Costco for the first time since this whole coronavirus saga began. We actually tried to go once in Mesa during the seniors’ hour, but there were so many people that we bailed and went to Basha’s instead for a donut. Yesterday, we had to stand in line for a very short while until enough people came out of the store to accommodate us, but  then it was a pleasant experience. There were no over-eager people slamming into our cart or running over our feet in an effort to get past us. It was pretty quiet, and we found exactly what we wanted: toilet tissue and paper towels. Oh, and a couple vitamin supplements. Overall, a positive experience.

The Arches
A week or so ago, Bill got the idea to remove one or two of our iris patches that weren’t really blooming (due to inadequate care, shame on me), and put in a garden arch leading to the back of our yard. The arch arrived from Wayfair day before yesterday, and he spent yesterday assembling it and putting it into our yard. I love the way it looks. I’m just trying to decide whether or not to put some sort of vine to climb up the wrought iron. Will I be sorry to have an out-of-control vine in my back yard?…..

Thanks Uncle Sam
We got our stimulus check this week. Yay! But it was in the form of a debit card, which was quite unexpected. After much checking to make sure it wasn’t some kind of scam, we finally registered the card, and then promptly went to our bank to put it into our checking account before we lost the card and were very sad. Overall, it was a positive experience. Thank you United States Government.

Somewhere Over the Rainbow
After a perfectly sunny day, about 7 o’clock in the evening, it started to rain. It was a lovely rain with no thunder or lightning. Since we had just finished dinner with Dave and Jll and the kids (who are leaving Friday for Montana), we decided to move out to their front porch and watch the rain. It wasn’t long before the sun was trying to come out, despite the rain. I knew if we looked hard enough, we would find a rainbow. We did, indeed find it. Unfortunately, my iPhone 7’s camera isn’t awesome, so you will have to imagine that you can see the rainbow in the distance behind Maggie Faith. You can see it if you move it further from your face……
