So, today is Easter and all of the churches are closed. Except for those renegades here and there that still gather people.
The pope spoke to an empty space. The National Cathedral was empty and church services were on line.
The day was pretty uneventful for me. I woke up around 7 15. One thing nice about not having a schedule is sleeping until you wake up. I do like that. Rich and I usually read in the morning. News etc. Then we took a walk with Rupert around the neighborhood. It was a beautiful day . The grass is greening. The daffodils are blooming, the flowering trees are budding as well as the leaves. Hard to believe disaster is happening around us.
I made flourless zucchini and carrot muffins for mom. I happened upon the recipe and knew I had a zucchini that needed using. They ended up being pretty good, made with pulverized rolled oats. I used chunks of Godiva baking chocolate that Harry had bought for his cookies at Christmas. A life time ago now. Much better times.
I went over to moms around 2 pm and we walked around her complex. She had on her mask and her gloves. She was wearing a white hat with a pom pom, that I had never seen before and a patterned coat and a scarf. She had no make up. She seemed tired and got out of breath easily. We had to sit down. I do worry about her. I think this whole thing is paying its toll on her. I brought her flowers, a bottle of wine, some powdered milk ( a sign of the times) and the muffins.
I came home, read and fell asleep for 10 minutes. I spoke to Harry on the phone and that was good. I made sautéed scallops which were delicious is Ghee with added cooked garlic, Swiss chard sautéed , that Marty bought at the Glens Falls farmers market and a half of an avocado with oil and balsamic vinegar. It was really so delicious.
530,000 people have Covid 19 in the US as of today and 21,000 have died. New York has 9, 385 deaths as of today and 758 people died yesterday.
I need to keep up on the statistics, so that no one forgets.
Harry thinks, that at his hospital, things might be slowing down. I hope to God so.
