Final July Show from the Rock Creek Kings

This shot is blurry, but simply reflects my desire to grab a quick pic and then turn my flashlight back on to join the others in the modern concert alternative to lighters. It was a good Rock Creek Kings show, even if the first half was heard from across the ravine in the garden.

I’ve been doing a bit of online shopping recently. A new computer battery for my work laptop (it’s been bulging for a while and I thought I should deal with it before it catches on fire) and some new work clothes arrived, just as skyrocketing cases and mask mandates make me question if we’ll be back after Labor Day or not. (If/when we do return, we’ve got a three-month experimental period planned where we can decide if we want to be in-office all the time, fully remote, or hybrid. Right now I’ve said hybrid, but it all depends on a number of factors, like where our new office space is, if our dress code relaxes at all, or how much I hate being around people I can’t just tell to be quiet because I’m on a call.) Tonight I bought a new cell phone case off eBay, because my old one is disintegrating and has already allowed my phone screen to crack. A few new casual tees are also on their way to me. Really I should take myself to a store, but it just seems like such an effort.

Some of it is depression buying, albeit with a gift card. But I think some of it might be coming-out-of-depression buying — taking care of things I should have done months ago. I emptied cat boxes today — and moved them to sweep behind, which is also an encouraging trend. Heck, I’ve even already changed the calendar to August. We’ll see what tomorrow holds. (Besides the farmers market, lunch with friends, and a call with my folks, of course.)
