Monday, October 10: Had to take my car in for some work, which meant I had a few hours to wander around, which led me to this unused loading dock behind what used to be our JCPenney store.
Tuesday, October 11: My favorite view again, this time with me in it.
Wednesday, October 12: Took some time to swatch nail polish for my blog for the first time in quite a while.
Thursday, October 13: Cool enough now to want to cuddle under a blanket on the couch.
Friday, October 14: This sign was on the door of the hospital building the blood drive was being held in. When I got to the small room where it was taking place, I notice only two masks, one on my face, one on that of another donor. It was a small room for the number of people in it, with no signs of any particular effort to provide fresh air circulation. I was aggravated and anxious about the lack of precautions given the risks of long COVID—so much so my blood pressure was too high to donate for the first time ever.
Saturday, October 15: Spotted a caboose on my drive to the studio, one that seemed to still be in use for some railroad purpose. They’re so rare I pulled over to snap a photo.
Sunday, October 16: A band of wildfire smoke drifting through my favorite view.
On this date in 2002 to 2021: No entries
