Economic Quarantine, a Diary: Day 12 (Wednesday, March 25th)

Day 12 (Wednesday, March 25th)

I woke up around 5:30 in the morning, which is fairly normal for me.  I had a stomach ache, which seems to happen whenever I eat right before I go to bed.  Nevertheless, I jumped out of bed.

After feeding the cats I started to read the newspaper.  My stomach and the lack of caffeine had me feeling sluggish, so I decided to go for a ride on my bike.  There's something about fresh air, especially early in the morning while the weather is still nice.  When I returned from the brief outing I was already feeling better.

Yesterday I made Spam Onion soup.  Yes, it makes me laugh, too.  We had some perishable items that needed to be used up.  The Spam Onion soup included rice, peas, green onions, cilantro, chicken broth, yellow onions and spam, along with some seasonings.  It turned out better than I thought, so I had some for breakfast along with a grilled cheese.

The big economic news of the day was that the Senate finally approved a stimulus plan.  Things looked fairly uncertain until late in the day.  The House is doing a voice vote on Thursday.  I learned a voice vote means they do not have to reconvene the House in Washington, D.C.  But if one House member objects, it would slow down the process.

I completed a 3 hour route for Amazon at the Brandon warehouse today.  I also did a handful of Doordash deliveries.  My income is way down, but it's better than nothing.
