Dutch Lock Down Day Twenty Four

I managed to take a super long walk and hit 10k steps for the day despite having a huge depression nap yesterday.

The incredible warm sunny spring weather continues to hold for the third day in a row.

The bread maker woke up and did it’s damn job.

I filed my nails.

Things are looking up.

But first the news:

If only Schitt’s Creek would get over here.


It’s a Saturday night.


While I had a really great day today, it’s dark and late and the brain is spiraling downward and so I better wrap this up and tuck myself into bed before the ruminations get really special.
