Why

I don’t know why but I am still putting on makeup each day. I guess it makes me feel better mentally.

I knew she was getting well after her medical incident when I found her on the kitchen floor when I walked into her room one day and she had makeup on. I make my bed up every morning too. Even without being in isolation, I do it as I feel...

On TV: Saturday Watch Log

What I describe below is a mix of movies, documentaries, and TV shows that I watched throughout the day yesterday (a Saturday), and I’m just now realizing that in order to watch all of this, I had to use four different streaming services (Apple TV+, Netflix, NHK World, and Prime Video), which again, suggests that all of these services existing is just not sustainable in the long run.

A thunderstorm rolled through early on Saturday morning, a prelude to a mostly rainy day. The sun did come out later in the afternoon, though. Tasha and I headed out just as the storm moved in and, naturally, turned right back around. After the storm, we made another attempt but we didn't get far before the rain started falling again. Springtime among the vines. Tasha and I made it out to that lone tree before rain forced us to turn back. I had the camera with me because I wanted some shots of...
