Small Stone - New Normal - 8

Summit Medical Center

busy morning
up early and at Whole Foods by 7
(during old folk's hour)
busier than usual because of tourists
but clean and easy to navigate
then to an older grocery store nearby
isles narrow and shelves looking bare
fewer shoppers thank goodness
splitting our small list we quickly emerge

next the medical center for Bob's blood work
in no time he emerges a smile on his face
the young phlebotomist is skilled
only one poke

at home again Bob disinfects groceries while I store them
clothes in the washer, ourselves in the shower
finally a cup of coffee and brunch on the deck
mission accomplished

feeling well we remain cautious
errands require more planning than usual
our new normal
