Shelter-in-Place Journal, Day Thirteen

It’s been a quiet week in Lake Wobegon…I mean Los Gatos, and today was no exception.

We started with a quick trip to the Farmer’s Market – the weather was just cool and threatening enough to make social distancing easy, but the fish seller had already run out of tuna. I bought some local lingcod, so I’ll have to figure out how to cook it. Again, I had to use cash – this time, I got some bills back and stuffed them in my wallet (while wearing gloves) – any coronavirus will degrade before I have to touch cash again, so I’m not too worried.

Last week, the Los Gatos Creek Trail was uncomfortably crowded, so we decided to walk the sidewalks instead – once we got out of the immediate downtown, we had the world to ourselves. I’d rather be walking in greenery, but not having to dodge bicyclists was nice!

Lunch was Indian takeout (and wine); I waited outside for my order – while I waited, the skies opened up, but the restaurant’s awning kept me reasonably dry.

Beth Lee of OMG Yummy! led a “Pantry Cooking” class for Shir Hadash on Zoom; the focus was garbanzo beans. We have no garbanzo beans in our pantry – I think I’ll fix that next time we go shopping.

Dinner was leftover steak (and wine), then a quick walk, and that did it for today.

UPS claims they’ll deliver our wine tomorrow – we’ll see.
