I feel like I'm tired of saying "well, we are still here," but we are. The week before Thanksgiving normally involves a lot of shopping and a lot of planning for me. There is also some making ahead of dishes that can be. I guess this year was easier in that respect. I'll post a … Continue reading Quarantine Week 35
Since we were not able to have an in-person celebration for Thanksgiving this year, I prepare a meal for my lovely eldest and her roommates.
The numbers keep getting worse and our Governor, Mayor and health officials are talking about a full shutdown again. For us, this means very little for our daily lives, as my husband and I have been pretty locked down since March. Some say I'm living in fear. They are right.

That probably means they are getting less interesting for you to read as well. But I committed to memorializing our quarantine life this way, and I still believe it will make for … Continue reading Quarantine Week 29

Think all things soup or casserole. And since we have had success with at least three soups with the kid, I am really wanting … Continue reading Quarantine Week 28
Well, I still haven't moved my grill outside at the new place. But I am loving my new kitchen. All of my stuff fits, and there is still cabinet and drawer space available. It's awesome to be able to get to all of my stuff without going into storage or having it piled all over. … Continue reading Quarantine Week 27
