Shelter-in-Place Journal, Day 268

Another quiet day; I finally caught up on my blog reading from the past two weeks and beat my email inbox down to zero, at least briefly.

We voyaged to the wilds of San Mateo County this afternoon to pick up an order of spices from the Penzeys store in Menlo Park. It was odd seeing outdoor dining and beauty salons still open there – we did not indulge.

The real reason for the trip was to return a batch of books and a DVD to the Jewish Community Library at the JCC in Palo Alto – we handed them to the security guard at the entrance to the parking lot, and we trust they will eventually make their way to the Library itself.

Progress comes in small steps.
