Day 96 of Safer-at-Home here in Panama City Beach, Florida. Today’s Florida Department of Health’s (DOH) statistics for COVID-19 for Bay County are 157 conformed cases and 4 deaths, and for Florida are 80,109 cases and 2,993 deaths. The statistics from Florida’s Community Coronavirus Dashboard for Bay County are 170 cases and 5 deaths, and for Florida are 88, 261 cases and 3,085 deaths.
I was actually a little cold when I first set out on my walk this morning as there was a cool breeze coming from the east. Of course this feeling did not last long as I worked up a sweat. I have been listening to Book 3 in the Will Robie series by David Baldacci entitled The Target. For me these have been the perfect audible books to listen to while I walk as they hold my attention, but if my mind strays I don’t feel like I have missed anything. They are action packed, have strong female characters and the characters live in a world totally different from my own. I download the books from my library by way of Overdrive, which fits my budget.
I finished up my Power Point Presentation on fold3.com for the Bay County Genealogical Society this morning. Tomorrow I will fine tune it and do a practice run to make sure it is not too long.
This afternoon I began planning for my Metalsmithing class I will be teaching in July at Gulf Coast. I submitted how I wanted the room set up to the college. And I put some supplies in the cart at Rio Grande for the kits. I just need to determine if I need anything else before I purchase. Plus, I confirmed that masks are a requirement at the college, which made me happy.
In my workshop, I started to make some samples. But I got bogged down when I realized that the hole I drilled with my flex shaft was too big for the rivets I was going to use. I thought I would get out my hole punches as a quick way to determine the right size, but that drawer was stuck. It appears the one of the hole punches is causing the problem and I just couldn’t resolve the issue. I need to bring a pillow out to the workshop so I can kneel down and reach in from the back. Tomorrow is another day.
Stay Safe, Stay healthy
