    We’re finally out of drought. I knew the summers were hot and humid, but this is the first summer in 12 years that we’ve had normal weather. I’m not a fan of the humidity. When the air is as dry as yours the rain clouds can’t rain. We would be surrounded by storms and have blue sky above us during the worst of the drought.

    I find getting enough sleep really does help me manage pain better. I have chronic sartorius muscle strain that’s acting up right now. Sometimes going to bed is like being sent to the torture chamber!

    It was a quiet 4th with Alex. Usually on the 4th our guys go down to Monroe’s Main Street plaza and watch the fireworks from there. They did have fireworks, but we all stayed home this year. Alex stayed here overnight on Friday, went home Saturday night and came back this morning. I’m not sure there’s any schedule. We’re sure to see him again on Wednesday.

    I think I know what you mean about the deep ache. I've experienced something like that in my legs a few times but it only lasted a day or two. But it was very disconcerting because it's clearly not muscle- or arthritis-related and there's nothing you can do to ease it. Has your doctor said anything about checking your electrolyte levels? There's a lot of mention in the intermittent fasting community of night leg pain caused by a need for more magnesium or potassium.

    Wow, I didn't realize towns could override counties on this. This whole thing has been such an idiotic mess of 'who's in charge?' Just imagine if we had had clear federal leadership. Anyway I would definitely shop in Flagstaff too if I were you.

    What I'm finding hard is the loss of my regularly scheduled activities. They gave me structure and a certain amount of community, and now it's just nothing. This week I'm doing a lot of reading, as we're having a wave of heat and humidity that pretty much keeps me indoors. I went back to one of my favorite authors, Alice Munro. Have you read any of her work? I went back and started rereading and then I realized I was so curious as to which parts of her work were autobiographical, so I found her on Wikipedia and then read some interviews she gave, had a whole Alice Munro day where I hardly came up for air. This is the kind of deep diving I'll go into these days.

    That's awful. Is your immediate neighborhood at least okay?

    There's a good chunk of the population around here who are Covid deniers, but I've been able to start going to the grocery store the last two weeks - was only ordering online before then - because all the employees and customers are following procedure. (Also I go very early in the morning to a store that doesn't tend to get that busy anyway.) I've heard that things are sketchier at local restaurants that are serving outdoors, with servers 'forgetting' to wear their masks.

    We have a Republican governor, Hogan, who we tried hard to beat last election but he has turned out to be a real leader re the pandemic and has stood up to Trump. I would probably vote for him at this point.
