I fixed one last big meal for everyone, and then the company departed. It is just me and Tim rattling around our house again.
My weekly class met tonight using zoom. That class is a lot of reading and it requires me to read with my kindle in one hand to look up unfamiliar terms or to get an historical reference. I discovered tonight that most folks hate the book that I have to read. But, strangely, I like it. I've always liked history, and this is a part of history that I'm unfamiliar with.
When current events become too much to be borne, I can lose myself in a book with maps and names and conquests. The distraction is nice. Sometimes the distraction is required.
But I watched the debate anyway and kept up with the commentary in a local 'live watch' group.
