Much of last year was a series of kidney stone episodes and I think three surgeries for my next door neighbor. I'm happy to report that he's feeling much better now, his diet is somewhat restricted, but it's worth it to avoid building the stones again.

Horrible heat and humidity here this week; I see most lawns in the neighborhood need mowing but few people have bothered to step out into the steam room to mow.

July and August are pretty awful in Texas, and this year of #COVID19 makes it all the worse. I'm going to be staying home most of the time and will order what I need via the delivery services. I made a big push to get somethings today that I didn't trust someone else to select for me; now it will be fresh fruit and vegetables and occasionally beer or wine.

Some friends and families have been trying to expand their quarantine to other family members of neighbors, with the understanding they won't go anywhere else so there won't be extra risk. But the numbers in Texas are climbing so fast that has to be put on hold.

I'm moving stuff between rooms and preparing to put surplus packing supplies in the trash and donate items I'm not interested in selling on eBay to Goodwill. At this point everything is in flux but I hope by the end of the week to make the rooms functional and have the sunroom a welcoming space for the time when anyone is able to enter my house again.
