“New Light” Cedar Park, 2020

Mariko is upping her Zoom class lighting rig with this new LED ring-light system. We need to order the iPad holder for the center, but for now, she’ll just use it as a directional light. The brightness is adjustable, so it can be used to add a bit of fill light nicely, or you can crank up the intensity and bounce it off the wall or ceiling. It’s pretty neat! I might even use it for my work meetings. 😃

They sure do love their boxes.

And I love how the bottle of wine appears to be balances on Yuzu-chan. 😹

We’re still in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic which has cause some large life-changes, such as working from home, remote learning, no dining out, etc. But there are quite a few small changes too, which I thought were interesting. Or maybe not interesting at all. Anyways, here are some:

  • I keep the mailbox key in my bicycle bag instead of my car.
  • I have only worn long pants once. That was for mosquito protection while doing some yard work.
  • I haven’t worn regular socks or shoes in a long time. It’s either running shoes/socks, or my Birkenstocks.
  • I now take my showers in the evening. It feels so good to climb into bed nice and clean! I used to take my shower in the morning in order to wake up and get rid of bed-head. But now I can be a bit more lax with my “grooming”. Also, I ride my bicycle or go for a run in the evening, so a shower is necessary.

Today’s photo is of the tree that hangs over the neighborhood mailbox. It’s what prompted me to think about how I keep the mailbox key on my bike instead of my car.

I hope you had a good day and are hanging in there! 😀
