CoViD-19: CDC Releases Camp Guidance | Biden Releases Budget | County Installs Free Feminine Product Dispensers | ATF Inaction Under Fire |


Caterpillar at San Elijo Lagoon (Taken 5.28.21)

I was really hoping to be a little more productive going into the weekend and get my inbox under control, but it appears everyone else thought they'd do the same and triple the volume I get daily. Ew. So I mostly ignored it. I'll catch up later and get some more in depth reading in but cocktails are waiting for me in the speakeasy so I'm gonna cut. 

What we did do today was get a ton of time in the sun. We went to Anderson's Nursery and  bought some pollinator plants for an old bookshelf we've laid flat to convert to a planter in hopes of getting some more butterflies and hummingbirds around since the construction next door removed all the weeds and wildflowers that had provided habitat in the past. It looks so pretty and I hope it does the trick. We've already gone through most of the compost we got at the dump so may have to make another trip soon. 

After the afternoon of gardening, we decided to go to San Elijo Lagoon. It was pretty empty as it was after 6pm and the visitor's center was closed, but we just wandered some of the trails with the dog and me stopping every ten feet to watch more birds and flying fish. The marine layer had already rolled in so after a couple miles we called it a day. None of my pics are especially great so I'll skip sharing and chalk it up to a learning experience instead. 

Maybe it's because people are traveling and thus testing more, but today's positive cases in California (4,864) was more than three times as many as yesterday (1,418), and our 170 deaths are almost a third of the 577 US deaths-- though they may actually be different reporting days, but the point remains: don't start thinking this thing is over. Not by a longshot. Stay safe out there.
