How is your weekend going so far? Today I went to a peaceful gathering in support of liberty and justice for all. I was able to participate from my car, and was able to keep more than 6 feet from others. After, we went for a convertible ride in my husband’s vehicle. Both were things I needed to do for me. That, and this report, were my day.
What did you do this beautiful day that was just for you? I hope you can enjoy the second half of the weekend, but please, stay safe, and always, be kind.
