The bread turned out decent enough. I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t have attempted to bake bread if it weren’t for the “shelter-in-place” mandates that come with COVID-19.
But I’m sure we’re all learning new things during these times. Like not to leave the house without our hand sanitizer. But also things like whether we possess the hoarding gene or not.
Today’s COVID-19 count in Hawaii jumped by 21. We’re now at 77 cases statewide. Amazingly, Kauai’s number is staying steady at three. Does that mean we are doing a better job at sheltering in place? Are we just lucky so far? Will our time come?
The other big news in Hawaii is that Governor Ige issued a statewide stay-at-home order through the end of April. This in addition to the 14-day quarantine for all incoming travelers.
Meanwhile, the sun is still shining. Chickens are still clucking and roosters still crowing outside my window. I can still hear cars driving past the house outside. Speaking of cars, the dealership ran a diagnostics on our Prius’ hybrid system and called to say everything is fine. The warning message is standard whenever the car’s 12v battery goes dead, is disconnected, or gets replaced. It seems Eric left a light on inside the car while he was detailing it last week. So, basically, its visit to the dealership was a wellness check.
Consider this a wellness check: How are you doing?
