The call came this morning: Tim and I will receive our first covid shot on April 21st. A momentous day. It is also Tim's birthday. We will receive our second shot on May 25th. So, that was good news. (Late Edit: actually, we are getting the first dose this Sunday. It seems like everything is opening up for all age groups all at once. I canceled the first appointment, and we will drive to nearby Corry. Tim will not have to miss work.)
The library is going to reopen. It's been months since we could walk in there and borrow a book. That just feels like something to celebrate.
Although we have yet to catch a glimpse of him, Get-Along the feral cat looks to have survived the winter. We are seeing small signs that he is about. We try to make his life as easy as he will tolerate. He is truly a wild animal and will not approach or allow himself to be approached. He is obviously a smart creature, knowing how to avoid foxes and coyotes and the semi trucks that rumble by on the highway. He is also an excellent mouser, and we are glad to have him around the property.
New calves at my sister's house.
The next 10 days are all supposed to have daytime temperatures between 61 and 69 degrees. That's 16 and 20 degrees for you celcius folks.
The greenhouse is framed. The next step will be installing the windows and the polycarbonate roof panels. That will probably be next weekend.
It was a nice Easter day.
