Our church has been doing services by Zoom. I’ve been helping out. I like to help, and I enjoy when I can explain something to someone and they get it.
This morning I was helping someone with their display settings. When a slide show is “shared”, it can take up a large part of the screen, so I was showing someone how to “slide” the divider over a little.
Also, my computer screen is really dusty.
It looks like this coming Sunday will be our last Zoom Sunday. There will most likely be in-person services on the 5th. We’ll do an internet broadcast of that service, but it will be on YouTube or Facebook.
Yesterday was the last day of school. I met with the seventh graders first thing the morning for a math test. Then we did our last chapel of the year. I got teary. It’s been a weird couple of months.
Later in the morning, the kids came to drop off textbooks and clean their lockers.
It was fun to see them, but sort of anti-climactic. I like the craziness of the last day and all the good-byes. Some of the kids gave me cards or gifts. One kid wrote one of the nicest notes I’ve ever gotten. Another kid gave me a couple of homemade masks that her mom made. What a sign of the times! But I do really like them. I’ll definitely use them.
After school, I went home and ate too much. Ugh. Then I felt gross, so I went for a walk. The sun was setting. It was gorgeous!
I finished a salt container. I don’t remember if I’ve ever done this before. I mean, I don’t cook a LOT lot, so I don’t use a lot of salt at home. But I ran out.
I remember being excited when I found this container of salt, because it’s iodized sea salt – something that is still rare to see. And thanks to my memory archive, I know exactly when I bought this. It was December 15, 2015. So this salt container has lasted me four and a half years? That seems pretty good.
My cucumber plants are failing. They looked pretty healthy for a while, but then they got aphids. I sprayed them with soapy water. The aphids mostly died. Then I saw lady bug larvae! They eat aphids! Woo hoo! I stopped spraying.
But the cucumbers continue to look bad. The leaves are shriveling and dying . The stems look spindly too. I think it’s only a matter of time.
