These sure are strange and interesting times. No wonder I am exhausted all the time. I do an extensive benefit/risk analysis before I ever leave the house. Is the benefit I may get more than the risk of catching COVID? I do this even before I take my walks. I had a teeth cleaning appointment […]

donut days

So our dear Mr. Ken managed to really hurt his shoulder, so we have to take a rest from kayaking for a while. We are both bummed since when we are out on the water, life seems almost normal. But, better to be safe than sorry. Since we are still sheltering at home, there is […]

Covid snacks

Ack, I probably shouldn’t use the word “Covid” and the word “surprise” in the same sentence. Enough with the Covid already! I don’t know about you all, but since I have sheltering in place, I’ve had a lot of time to think. As I was reflecting this weekend, I realized that I have been surprised […]

I am happy since we got to go out kayaking last weekend. It was a glorious sunny day, with perfect temperatures. Kayakying is always my “happy place,” but it is especially so this year.

bears on kayak

Sir Angus and Sir Oliver painting

I have not figured out what my new hobby will be. I guess it will have to be something I can do at home, with the materials I have on hand. However, our dear Sir Angus and Sir Oliver have taken up a new hobby – painting! That is when they are not trying to […]

Time to mix it up

mixing bowls

No, I am not talking about an early cocktail hour. Although these days this sounds pretty good! We all are going a bit stir crazy with our “shelter at home.” The only time I get out of the house is for my walks and to go food shopping. The other day I went out for […]

Food, just food

new monthly budget

I have never in my life spent so much time thinking about food. I think about when to go to the grocery store; I write my grocery list so that it follows the aisle so I can get in and out quickly. I wish I could hold my breath while I’m in the store to […]
