Errands, Fungi, and Glassas

I put my check in the bank today (and paid bills when I got home) and then went to swap flash drives and realized I'd forgotten the safe deposit box key. I can do it tomorrow or later in the week. I went to get groceries and ran into most of a family from bookgroup. Their youngest boy has strep and both parents have sinus infections. I asked the older boy if he was taking care of them and he said he was taking care of the house and cooking, which, I suppose, is pretty good for a 17-year-old boy.

I'm washing cat blankies at the moment and Spirit is being particularly weird.

Last night I read 2.5 WashPosts and in one of them, found a science article about a guy who photographs fungi from all over the world. I wouldn't have believed some of them were fungi! You can see them on his website.

I ordered the glasses from Zenni tonight. They're progressives, so it will probably be three weeks. They were cheaper than I was expecting (you pay $9 more for extra-strength lenses, except for Progressives/Bifocals/etc. and I was thinking it was for all lenses). With shipping, it's $63.85.
