Greetings from Croydon Creek

I am feeling completely wiped out from my Shingrix shot, which did not happen with the first one -- now I know why people said they did not enjoy it! I had a nice Sunday starting with an early Messenger call with my college roommate and another friend, then a walk at Croydon Creek (nature center closed, but no hunting this weekend and we saw deer, plus lots of birds and squirrels near the waterfall and farm ruins).

When we got home, I had a Zoom call with fannish friends, then we ate leftover jambalaya for dinner, after which we Skyped with older son. Then we watched 12 Strong, which I had seen before but Paul had not -- still extremely violent and doesn't unpack the long-term consequences of the war in Afghanistan, but well-acted and interesting. More tomorrow when hopefully my antibodies will be calmer!
