Had some work done by maintenance in my apartment this afternoon. So that is taken care of. Bought some groceries over the weekend. So I’m set for the next several days. Been getting out of the apartment at least once a day for the last several days. Reading a couple e books right now. Working on Wealth of Nations and Count of Monte Cristo. I read both of these years ago. But I thought I’d re read them.
Besides the maintenance workers, my neighbors came and visited a couple times over the weekend. They were kind enough to make dinner last night. I provided the meat and they did the rest. We had bratwursts and fried potatoes. They usually cook for me and a few other people at least once a week.
Keeping in contact with friends and family a little every day. A friend of mine is losing hours at her job as her company is struggling due to the pandemic and economic problems. Another friend of mine and his wife are expecting their second child any day now. A third friend of mine is back to working at the office in her job. She had been working from home for the last few months. My brother and his family are in the process of moving to a different house in the same town they live in. My oldest nephew just got his drivers’ license a few days ago.
Baseball games will be starting in a few days here in the U.S. I’m glad to see this. I had been watching Italian and English soccer most days to get my sports fix. It’s weird seeing games played in empty arenas.
Overall I’m weathering the summer well. I don’t watch the news much. I sometimes watch Bloomberg Business but not much else. And I still sleep alright.
