Friday night i picked up dinner at the Mexican restaurant near the the big box building supply store. I was picking up the metal “rail caps” that will be installed on top of the rough cut cedar as splinter-free touch points (even though the stairs are great and I do not feel the need for a rail any more, happy happy happy dance), so ordering take out seemed a fun idea. The parking lot for the restaurant was full on a Friday night. Inside tables were full of people, multiple families with children at one table, a party of six men waiting for a table while I waited for food.

I didn't feel anxiety but i was very aware of high risk space i was in. I wasn't happy about it and won't pick up food from there again. At least the space had a very high ceiling.

The good news is that the county's level has dropped to the middle level assessment at the NYTimes, high instead of very high, so that's reassuring.

Saturday and Sunday were mostly about digging in the garden and then being an achy creaky thing.

Yesterday i saw my first tiny bluet (Houstonia pusilla). I've seen them in mid February, in previous years. It does seem that while this winter hasn't been dramatic this year -- we missed the cold snap -- it's been more sustained.
