After a truly wonderful time in Scotland, I am definitely moving back, I return to San Francisco and am immediately scythed down by Covid. Not so bad as I had son James to generally look after me, go shopping and such. Not surprisingly, after a couple of days, poor James is also scythed down. Sorry James.
We have spent the last 5 or 6 days in lock down in the apartment.
Not so bad as San Francisco has fantastic deliver to your home systems. I use Instacart https://www.instacart.com/store/. They work with a huge range of stores. You go to the store website order whatever you want and an hour later it is delivered to your door by gleeful young Californians.
The problem is neither James nor I have any appetite nor inclination to drink. Anticipated banquets stay in the fridge.
What to do day after day? Buy stuff from Amazon of course.
I am reluctant to take my Willis and Goodlad, of which I have written before, https://thequietripple.com/2019/02/21/analogy/on trips. She is so wonderful but I worry about damaging her, which would be a crime against humanity. I get a carbon fiber flute made by Carbony:https://carbony.com/products/flutes/. These are indestructible and I am very much enjoying trying to get the best sound out of it.
Amazon is incredible! The most obscure stuff is delivered to your door the next day. Perfect for Covid boredom. Also makes for truly nail biting blog entries.
I feel much better but I am scared of taking another test in case it is positive again. Hmmm, maybe wait until tomorrow. Any suggestions as to what I can buy on Amazon are much appreciated. Maybe some Salt Cod.
