Day 89 of Safer-at-Home here in Panama City Beach, FL. This morning’s statistics for COVID-19 for Bay County are 133 confirmed cases and 4 deaths and for Florida are 66,000 cases and 2,765 deaths.
This weekend the weather was the main event because of Tropical Storm Cristobal: dark skies, showers and wind. But luckily not flooding in my area. During it, I had to work on my screened-in porch. My main goal was to get everything away from the side of the house for the termite treatment. But in the process, I filled up my garbage can and will have more to throw out once the garbage is picked up on Thursday. I would have liked to have cleaned out the small storage shed but the weather was too inclement for that.
Tomorrow if weather permits, the roofers come and start working on my roof. I plan to escape to my workshop.
Today was Book Club day and we decided to meet in person. The last time we saw each other, outside of Zoom was in March. We met at Little Village in St Andrews. They have added a huge covered pavilion overlooking the water, so there was a nice breeze, and we were able to maintain social distance. For the first hour we had the place to ourselves, which was nice for conversation. The book we discussed was Journey: A Novel by Andrew Zimmerman. As usual we talk about the book and then we just talk about what is going on in our lives. Then the lunch crowd began to arrive to eat at Finns, which has the best fish tacos. A few of us stayed to eat. For some reason I feel being outside around people is safer than being inside with them.
On the way home, I grabbed a few items from Publix. At least many shoppers were wearing masks and of course the employees were. I notice that they have put up plexiglass shields for the cashiers and for the pharmacy area.
In between everything else, I have been working on my presentation on fold3.com for the Bay County Genealogical Society. I have been slowly updating my Power Point from five years ago. And of course there are new documents to explore.
Stay Safe, Stay Healthy.
