Road trip!

July 1, 2020

So Mr. Ken and I decided to venture out to Rhode Island last week. I have a cousin who recently moved there and we are very close. We felt comfortable going to visit him because he has been staying at home, leaving home only to go for walks and to the grocery store. Since this […]

Looking forward to the dentist – say what??????

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 […]

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 surprises

Comments Off on COVID surprises

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 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

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

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 […]

Oh no, not another post about the Pandemic. Enough already! Now that I’m stuck at home, all I have is time. Here’s what is happening at our house this week: 1. What’s for dinner. Mr. Ken and I have undergone a change in roles. I now do the grocery shopping and meal planning. Especially for […]

Nothing about the pandemic this week; we’re all overloaded with information about that. I want to wish everyone a Happy Easter and a Happy Spring! What could be cuter than a chipmunk? A big thank you to my friend Lisa for sending me this picture. 🙂

Tales from the Pandemic – II

How long will this thing last??? No one knows, but I am mentally and physically preparing for the long haul. Here’s what’s new at our house this week. 1. Quarantine. No, not us. Thankfully Mr. Ken and I are well. Our dryer broke last week, of all weeks for this to happen. It was easy […]
