Shelter-in-Place Journal, Day 238

I was Toastmaster for the Silicon Valley Storytellers tonight. Our theme was “A Change of Pace”, which seemed very appropriate given what’s happened today.

We awoke to the first really cold day of the year – our roof was covered in frost (at least I know our insulation is working!). And our trainer texted us to say we couldn’t do our workout outside; fortunately, we had the entire exercise room (maybe 20×30 feet) to ourselves, so I felt OK coming inside.

Our usual custom on Mondays includes a quick walk after our workout to go see what our neighbors have created with their skeletons. Today, we were surprised to discover that they’re going to be taking a break for the foreseeable future! (One of the signs in the photo says “Day 237/Display Day LAST”.)

I’m not planning to take a break – not yet, anyway. See you tomorrow!
