Good morning, fellow Birdies and Nesters. 🙂 10 days until E-Day. Early signs point toward a possible tsunami of voter turnout. That is very heartening news. Does anyone know any links to reputable sites dealing with the actual voter hard count? Regulars on the Nest know I’m a bug about the subject. 🙂 Anywho, the Nest is Open. Enjoy! Sunday update: T minus 9 days and counting until E-Day. 🙂
Early Voting is now up to 31 million votes cast. The state leading the vote count is Texas. Voting opens in 11 states this week: Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Hawaii, Idaho, Louisiana, New York, North Dakota, Utah, West Virginia.

My daughter’s friends in Clayton, MO own a vegetarian restaurant named Frida’s (after Frida Kahlo, the Mexican artist) and have been in the process of opening a Mexican restaurant near Frida’s called Diego providing Mexican cuisine. (Diego was Frida’s husband.)
But I digress. Frida’s did very well during this pandemic . Both curbside pickup and out door dining. So well, they were eager to open Diego’s.
And here’s the point. Diego’s has been ready to open except for the lack of its furniture delayed en route from the factory in Mexico.

I don’t know if November 3 and the week after will run smoothly or if the shaky train we’re on will go wildly off the tracks.
So, I’ve shifted into prep mode. This is the same path I trod last March. I’m overshopping. Which means trying to lay in enough supplies so that it will be easier to weather any coming storm.
Is anybody else here doing this? Please add suggestions that you think will help us all, if you have any.
