I had a very nice Tuesday. In addition to beautiful weather, Alice came over and we were going to go out to lunch, but when we looked at the Sisters Thai dessert menu, we decided we really needed to share a nutella waffle with chocolate ice cream. Then we went for a walk at Cabin John Park, during which we worked up an appetite for proper lunch food, so we went back to Sisters Thai and had curry!

I walked again with Paul in the afternoon, we had eggs and sausage for dinner since I had dessert for breakfast. Then I watched Voyager's "Basics, Part One" with my Tuesday group, though we had some Zoom problems; after all this time, the episode is more enjoyable than I remembered. We interrupted Olympics for Miracle Workers, surely one of Daniel Radcliffe's best moments!
