   Gretchen's first post-pandemic trip to NYC
Wednesday, June 2 2021
After work today, Gretchen took advantage of her coronavirus immunity and drove directly to New Paltz and then took the bus into New York City. She'd be spending several days there socializing with friends who hadn't seen her in person for the duration of the pandemic. This was the first time Gretchen used any form of public transportation since a flight back from Texas in March of 2020, just as the coronavirus pandemic was becoming a society-altering phenomenon. This was also the first time in over a year that I'd be sleeping in the master bedroom with just the dogs and cats.
Meanwhile Powerful and I remained in Hurley, though Powerful made his usual mystery trips. He also smoked more flagrantly in the driveway, at one point filling my laboratory with the resulting smell. In that laboratory, I've removed some deep-storage items from down low in the center of the west ceiling-wall and have been repainting some of shapes there. Some of the items of deep storage hadn't been moved since I settled on the current colors I am using, so there were patches of blue and green in older shades of those colors.
I started drinking fairly early, though I took 150 mg of diphenhydramine at 8:30pm, putting a lid on my evening. As always when I sleep alone, I left the shade up so the morning light would assist Oscar in getting me out of bed.
