I was feeling under the weather yesterday -- have had a headache since Saturday -- but i managed to remember that Thursday evening was the state announcement of dose distribution day. I checked the UNC health system website after 5 pm and there were appointments in Smithfield and Rocky Mount today. As i selected them, they evaporated away -- but i got the last one for Mom. So Mom is off for her vaccine with Dad today. Huzzah.

Christine and I took a home coronavirus test yesterday. Collapse )

I'd arranged for UPS to pick up the tests, but they didn't. We'll see if they do this morning, and if the samples are good enough. I almost hope that the samples aren't so we get new kits that we can wait to use until we are really worried. (The kits do arrive pretty quickly on ordering them.)

We had snow in the full moonlight on Thursday morning -- at least on the south (cooler) side of our house. The north side, which gets plenty of winter sun, was mostly melted by 8 am.

My grandmother turns 103 on Monday. I'm sending pastries from a Cuban bakery in Miami. I hope the guava takes her back to her child hood in the Bahamas. She's apparently fading. We'll be gathering with her by Zoom. If it works well, i think i'll try to set my Dad up with an account or scheduled meetings so he can Zoom with her a little more frequently.
