Day 47 of Sheltering-in-Place here in Panama City Beach, FL. This morning’s statistics for COVID-19 for Bay County are 70 confirmed cases and 2 deaths, and for Florida 32,846 cases and 1171 deaths. The new cases here are two employees of a senior facility on the Beach side. Another bit of local news the City Manager of Panama City was interviewd in an article in USA Today entitled: Coronavirus recovery: What Americans can learn from hurricane-ravaged Panama City, FL.
I broke up my routine today. It all started with me meeting my friend Susan in the Lowe’s parking lot. She and her husband had planned to take advantage of Sam’s Club’s Senior shopping hours and offered to meet me somewhere to give me the eggs I was buying from her. So that is how I ended up at Lowe’s at 8:15 this morning. I handed her my sack of empty egg cartons and the cash and she handed me the eggs. And of course I wore my mask. As soon as I started driving home, my nose and eyes began to itch, but I resisted the urge to scratch and washed my hands throughly when I got home.
After this little adventure, I decided to take the day off. I started a big pot of bone broth in my InstaPot and watched a little TV. I did watch the pilot to one interesting show entitled Tales From the Loop. It is about a science fiction fantasy world. I tried but couldn’t get into anything else.
The broth should be cool by now. Tonight I think I will make some chicken soup with a little bit of carrots and green beans added.
