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
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!
My husband was leery of me even posting this one because he said just reading it stressed him out. This one is not about cooking or feeding my family, but I felt like sharing our recent stress.
This week was all about packing and more packing. And then the terrible moving day. Then unpacking. I think you can see a theme. I haven't meal planned in a couple of weeks. I lost half the contents of my freezer and my garden in one day. So this is all to say cooking has … Continue reading Quarantine Life Week 23
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
Today a very strange thing happened. My husband asked me what I was thinking for dinner. This was late in the afternoon. I replied I hadn't even thought about it. He checked my temperature. I realized I had not even planned anything for this week. Other than taking my sourdough starter out to reactivate it … Continue reading I didn’t have a dinner plan
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
Missing my daughters has probably been the hardest part of quarantine. We finally decided to try a socially distanced meal as both my older daughters always appreciate my cooking. It was better than I could have expected.
