Shelter-in-Place Journal, Day 366

I wasn’t sure if I was going to continue the daily journal after we got our second vaccinations and after the one-year mark, but I guess I am, at least until we reach “fully immunized” status or we spend a night away from home – at that point, I think the name would really need to change.

We planned a very easy day today to allow for side effects from the second vaccination – so easy, we didn’t even plan to cook. But we were lucky and had very few side effects. We were both very tired last night and went to sleep early; Diane’s arm is still sore, and she was tired until lunchtime; my arm was a little sore and I had a bit of a headache, but a couple of ibuprofen tablets took care of that.

We felt good enough to go out for our usual walks this afternoon, and we even cooked one of our quarantine favorites, Blistered Broccoli Pasta with Walnuts, Pecorino, and Mint for dinner.

So far, so good.
