It Really is Saturday

Elkridge, MD

It doesn't just feel like just another Saturday in an unending string of Saturdays--it really is Saturday. The calendar told me so!

The Diving Board and Reflection
Elkridge, MD
April 16. 2020
I could tell that it is really Saturday because it is raining and it always seems to rain on Saturdays. 

But it is Spring and the flowers are blooming and the birds are singing and the governors are trying to figure out how to safely get us all back to something resembling a functioning economy. 

In the meantime, I am getting so bored that I began taking images of the reflection of the diving board in my pool water. I actually took three images and decided that I liked this one the best.

The reflection of the diving board in the pool reminded me of an impressionist painting, perhaps by Monet. The wind was blowing and it took three images to get one that I liked.

I dream of visiting my palm tree in Florida. But, that trip seems further away with each passing day. The discussion about flying with fares being so inexpensive, or driving due to concerns about being crammed onto an airplane for the 2 hour 20 minute each way flight, continue to spark lively discussion. I suspect driving will win because it is the most flexible and we do have a number of things that need relocating to Florida that won't fit into an aircraft. 

But at least we are planning for when we are free to move around the country again. 

When will that be? Ever? 

And it is still early on Saturday. The Today show is on! I already mowed the lawn this week, but it is still raining.
