my parents dropped by my place on their way to market basket to get some ingredients for making duanwu festival (thursday) zongzi. they brought bags of empty cans for me to return at my own leisure. my mother hadn't been at my place for ages, not since kevin moved in back in late december, so more than half a year. she didn't remark that my place was messy but did say there was an oily cooking smell in the kitchen and i should open more windows to ventilate the house.
i went down to the community garden to water my plants. my plot is still missing a few peppers which i'll get from home depot at some point. that hydrangea i planted? not doing well. even though i caged it, something still managed to defoliate the whole plant. without leaves i don't think it's going to survive. when i got back to the house, i found "coronavirus day count" that kevin seemed to have left behind in the guest bedroom.
