Yesterday started with blue skies, so I got out with the Nikon D3000, and my gumboots. In a rain-soaked eucalypt, by our yard, I found a few striated pardalotes busy among the wet leaves.
We went into town today – it was nice to get in the car and go somewhere. Mr, R. had to get a script, and I went shopping. He was in and out of the Doc’s pretty smartly – the receptionist now has an acrylic screen up in front of her, as did the checkout stands in the supermarket. At 9:30 am, the supermarket wasn’t overly busy and I kept my distance pretty well while I whipped around.
Though there wasn’t a shred of toilet paper in the aisles, there was a huge stack at the front of that aisle where they usually put the ones on special. I didn’t bother getting any as I have plenty. There were some brands of tissues this time. Cake mixes were nearly gone! I got my favourite brand of gravy mix, so happy about that.
I gave Mr. R. the spare key to the car so he wouldn’t need to come into the supermarket. I wore gloves, donning them before getting cash out of the autoteller for our first wood delivery of the season. I was pleased to see that a lot of other shoppers wore gloves, too. I didn’t bring my own shoppings bags, so I wouldn’t have to pack them myself. Besides getting me in and out quicker, hygiene-wise it was better to pay the extra for the plastic reusable bags. They make lovely strong storage bags, or garbage bags, when camping.
So, it’ll be bit over two weeks before I need to venture out again for my own script.
Do stay safe. Stay positive.
