Well, I rarely hype Facebook here on my blog – not by choice, just not enough connection ‘tween the two for now, but needed a pic for this morning’s breaking news here in Texas, and my recent profile pic change on FB says it best 😊 Not that I do much on FB, there’s only so much time, but maybe more, eventually.
So anyway, Sheila came rushing in to the kitchen to ask me to guess who reversed their no-masks-required decision, and I jokingly “guessed” at several of our state’s leadership, but I was wrong anyway, lol! No, it’s more important than that actually – it’s where we shop to buy our food!
HEB (plus Central Market) and Albertson’s (Randalls) have reversed their no-masks-required decision from earlier this week!
HEB reverses course, will continue to require masks in stores.https://www.reddit.com/r/Austin/comments/lzjzfr/heb_reverses_course_will_continue_to_require/
Albertsons reverses course; will continue to require face masks for customers at Texas storeshttps://www.elpasotimes.com/story/news/2021/03/05/texas-face-mask-order-albertsons-require-texas-customers/4603222001/
It’s the right thing to do!
Just my opinion of course, but – grounded in guidance from the CDC.
As I quoted in a recent post when Texas went from the turmoil of our unnecessary Winter death storm to an unnecessarily early rescinding of our mask mandate, this is simple protection. And, if I were a mask, it protects you. But if you don’t, then I’m unprotected. And Sheila and I immediately knew we wouldn’t be able to shop at these stores for possibly several months, when we’d both be fully vaccinated, and, the majority of our state hit the 70% herd immunity threshold in vaccinations.
Masks may help prevent people who have COVID-19 from spreading the virus to others. The CDC recommends people wear face masks in public settings, especially when other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain. Wearing a face mask may limit exposure to respiratory droplets and large particles and may help prevent people who have COVID-19 from spreading the virus.Nov 24, 2020https://www.fda.gov/medical-devices/coronavirus-covid-19-and-medical-devices/face-masks-including-surgical-masks-and-respirators-covid-19

And, as I’ve mentioned before, if vaccinations continue at the pace our new federal administration is producing, and the rate of infections and deaths continues to decline, then maybe we can more safely rescind the mask mandate by the end of this month. And certainly by the time we get to 70% vaccination of all the people in our country!
Because, make no mistake, I really dislike having to wear a mask, but I hate getting sick.
And dying prematurely would be even worse, lol! 😏
Stay well everyone! 💕

- July 30, 2021 – What a Difference a New Keyboard Makes : LENRICH iPad pro 12.9 case with keyboardThis is an older now discontinued keyboard, but one of the few still available for my IPad Pro 2nd generation model (current model is 5th generation I believe), but I’m impressed with it enough to post about it and (if all continues well) my renewed ease of use not having to use the onscreen keyboard for blog posts, emails etc – that’s a big deal for me, lol! 😊
- July 29, 2021 – Whew! Yesterday Was a Day of Plowing Through, lol!Above is a picture of me November 2019 (notice the weather is warm but hot, finally 😊) and I look just a bit worn out? I’d just climbed the 218 steps to top of Old Baldy near Wimberley Texas! That’s kinda how I felt yesterday, only without as nice a view, lol! I’ll just say that….
- July 28, 2021 – New 25×40 #Acrylic on Canvas In-Progress : Barton Springs Greenbelt Indian SummerA chore heat filled day where my keyboard evidently is deciding it’s had it, lol! Hopefully I finish this post 😊 Basically I started the groundwork for my newest painting, acrylic, wanting to settle on my composition before hand, unlike how I handled my just finished watercolor, same size, where I inserted my figure at the end.
- July 27, 2021 – 4 Weeks Running! My Most Viewed Image For the Week @FineArtAmerica, Summer is a Lady : #Watercolor on Paper #ContemporaryImpressionismI’m sure I’ve had images repeat as most viewed 4 times in a row, but I wasn’t paying as much attention to that as I try to nowadays 😊 Summer is a Lady continues to simmer atop my selection of photos and artwork and illustrated poetry ♥️
- July 26, 2021 – Where I Left Off Before Our Trip, New #Watercolor on Canvas Completed : Barton Springs Greenbelt Indian SummerI just took another look at my newly completed painting (above) to try for some settled sentiment I can include for my post, and I do have that – some settled sentiment. I’m still digesting and assimilating what this new work means to me. Though I know it’s incomplete, because I also know this work is more a conscious marker of where I want to head, and feel compelled to head toward, I do have a grasp enough to point out some things that are making themselves more known to me.
- July 25, 2021 – Where I Left Off Before Our Trip, New Watercolor on Canvas in-progress, Developing the Right Figure to AddAs you can tell from my top pic, my efforts to progress from my value study and digital studies below are not going great, lol! I take solace from several things —
- July 24, 2021 – My Newest Poster Upload @FineArtAmerica – Barton Springs Greenbelt Austin Rocks at the Flats PosterYesterday posting about my resuming progress on a new watercolor on canvas (with absorbent ground) via beginning a study process for adding a figure to the nearly finished work, I mentioned I’d spent my 1st time at the nearby greenbelt in nearly 2 weeks! It was a pristine morning, warm, sunny, lightly breezy, and hardly crowded at all – in other words : wonderful! 😊
Thanks again, everyone! 😊
