T & T, incidentally, was not taking any chances. There was a greeter at the door with a temperature scanner, who also provided a generous pump of hand sanitizer before you were allowed in. I would like you all to know that my body temperature this morning was roughly 33.33 Celsius. The poor attendant had to take the temperature on my forearm, as my forehead was not registering any heat whatsoever.
The wind was cold, and I'd been out in it for a while, as you are when you take the bus anywhere, so my skin was clearly cold. It's not at all because I'm a vampire and therefore had no temperature to record.
Nope. Not I.
In any case, for a moment I thought I'd be turned away for having a temperature. Not that I feel unwell, but these small, nonsensical anxieties that pop into my head fairly frequently. Gladly, I didn't. I took my pump of sanitizer and happily shopped.
I really appreciate T & T taking these precautions. While it feels really weird, I also had a wonderful, stress free shop. I wasn't worried about anyone in the store being ill, and I was much less worried about myself being the plague carrier. I kept my mask on just in case, but all in all, it was a very pleasant morning.
Everything was purchased and I returned home shortly after 10:00 this morning. This was my biggest task of the day, and I'm really glad I got it out of the way quickly. Now I can focus on editing, writing, practicing French and playing the guitar, which are the other tasks I have for today.
Speaking of daily tasks, I somehow managed to do all of my to-do list yesterday, even though I had given myself permission to not do so. I wrote (my blog post, the blog post for Black Gate Magazine, and my daily 1K on my manuscript), edited, practiced French and guitar, all before my usual bedtime.
It was a good day, and I'm surprised and please with myself for managing it. I have struggled so hard with getting the things done that I wanted to get done of late, and no doubt I will struggle again, but for now, I'm doing okay, and I'm pleased.
Right, I'm off to do more work.
