WordPress says I should blog today but I deliverately postponed it because I got so engrossed reading.

I started a biography of Barack Obama by David Maraniss. Two years ago, I read Michelle Obama’s memoir entitled Becoming and I enjoyed it. I wonder if The Making of the Man is just as good. The book started with his family tree. Since it is pure narrative at the start, I read some short stories in between.

It’s been more than three months now since we had Covid and everything is back to normal if normal means you can now stay in front of the stove, prepare meals for the family, garden and sweep the yard, clean the house and read of course. There is nothing normal yet in my sense of hearing. Group discussions, listening to music and watching movies are still so noisy for my ears. But I could well understand a voice and calls over the phone now.

Life is definitely silent. Last night, I ordered online items from Lazada. You have to pay a minimal forty pesos for each item when you are ordering from different vendors. I’ve come to appreciate some Korean items. Lazada was on sale last August 8 and some items are still on sale until now. They deliver the goods after a day or two. You can even buy appliances through Lazada.

It’s Thursday night and I usually read until 12am most of the time. I don’t wake up early anymore. Josef and Jovy are still working from home, I think since March last year. JP Morgan hasn’t scheduled their vaccination yet.

I laughed when Josef opened our screen door and our two doggies Oreo and Cookie were excited to go out. Oreo was circling the garage but when Josef opened the door of the car, both of them climbed in. They had their check-up today.

I don’t know if this lockdown would end on August 20 as planned. I don’t even know how the Dept. Of Health could readily classify this Delta variant, based on their daily reports, those affected are increasing daily.
