It's October and feels like fall. While my husband is obsessing about fall foliage, I am obsessing on when I can fit my favorite hearty fall dishes into the menu rotation. 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
Remote schooling has officially taken over our lives a couple of days a week. My husband and I negotiate the command center (this is his name for my desk because it is equipped with multiple monitors) on a daily basis depending on our work needs. We are still getting everything through curbside pick up or … Continue reading Quarantine Week 26
So, we've hit the third trimester of this thing...kidding. I wish I could say it would only last 9 months, and at the end we'd all get a beautiful reward. I'm just not sure that is how this thing is going down. But it would be nice. So our house is coming together. I have … Continue reading Quarantine Life Week 24 – wow, 6 months!
Early in our quarantine life when everything was shut down and we started ordering our groceries online and doing curbside pickup, I noticed that the price of bacon soared. This led to us considering it a luxury and only ordering it about twice in 3 months. The problem is that we love bacon. Then, back … Continue reading Makin Bacon!
So we've been packing most of the week. This is definitely a record for me with us finding a place and moving within a two week span. The actual move happens Monday, but I've been packing like a mad woman for the last 10 days. I actually planned out our meal menu through the move … Continue reading Quarantine Life Week 22 – Getting ready to move
The fact that I am getting this post (and last week's post) out this week is a bit of a triumph. Last week, we were informed that we need to vacate our apartment no later than November 1st. Our building was sold in May 2019. The new owners wanted the building for the storefronts downstairs … Continue reading Quarantine Life Week 21
This post is coming out a bit later because life has been very interesting the last couple of weeks. I'll talk more about that in Quarantine Life Week 21. But wow! 20 weeks in quarantine. That's five months! At this point, I think we have adjusted to this lifestyle. We've stopped talking about when things … Continue reading Quarantine Life Week 20
Well, almost 5 months into this quarantine life. It really hasn't been that bad. I'm an introvert anyway, and I'm agoraphobic, so really, this is the life I kind of would think I would enjoy. Granted, I could definitely use with it being more of a lifestyle choice and not a fear of serious illness … Continue reading Quarantine Week 19
Well, it's the end of July, and we're still quarantining. The governor and the mayor of our city are both threatening to re-institute some of the more severe restrictions as the numbers continue to rise again for diagnosed cases and deaths. Both them and the scientists are warning this is going to continue for a … Continue reading Quarantine Week 18
Falling behind on these journal entries these days. I'm not even sure they are that interesting anymore, but I keep telling myself they'll make for an interesting read 20 years from now. I may be lying to myself. Thursday (7/9), I didn't take any pictures. Okay, I took one picture of the 10 year old's … Continue reading Quarantine Week 16
