Here we are at the end of the second week of the Oregon shelter in place rules.
Short update, Michelle and I are still doing well, and we are still working. We took today off from work as we both decided we needed a break, but otherwise, albeit slower, work continues.
A shout out to the Mighty P. They are giving every employee a small bonus next week to help out in these times. I did NOT see that coming and it one helluva nice thing to do.

Today, I took off after work to take advantage of the gorgeous weather in late October
and do a long bike ride. Both nights were fun, but both had that extra piece: nature was out and showing off! Continue reading “Two vastly different nights, with one similarity!”
