Here Comes The Sun

A sunny day is always a good thing.  Today was one of those.

Since mid-day in the middle of the week usually means fewer people at the store, we ventured out for some groceries with him staying in the car and finding a place to park close to the entrance while her, fashionably attired with mask and gloves, used her shopping list to quickly navigate the store.

When we got home, we heard a little noise outside and looking out the window, we were pleased to see that one of our next door neighbors was safely home after an emergency operation and enjoying a little time on their patio with the rest of his family at a social distance, but obviously happy to have him back.

Later, in the afternoon, we heard the sound (rare, these days) of laughing kids.  Looking outside we saw 2 kids from the house on the other side of us playing soccer on the grassy area between our houses.  They didn’t have masks on, but they were wearing gloves.

The sun continued to shine.

It was not the end of this crisis, but just a couple of nice moments that reminded us of what normal used to be.

For now, we’ll take it.
