Check In: Day 196

Week Twenty-eight: If you follow any sort of social media or news you probably get the sense that things here in the US are a bit tense. It seems like everyone everywhere is on edge. I had a friend ask I had considered prepping for my family. Not, really I mean we have plenty of food in our refrigerator and pantry. Then I realized they were talking about guns, ammunition, and a to-go bag. Wow! That caught me by surprise. I guess more and more people are making plans for election day and there after.

I will keep doing what I have been doing in being my little ray of sunshine (or as well as I can be) in the world. My family is a bit anxious but we will keep going. I am trying to limit the news, social media (other than my blog!), and other negative influences. How are you all feeling where you are?

I think part of why I am digging into old recipes is they remind me of simple times. But, when I start reading about why they were made they really are not the simpler times we think of. Canned soups and vegetables were used to save time for women returning to the work force that also wanted to still have a hot meal on the table for their family. Shortages of butter and eggs during the war lead to the creation of Crazy Cakes with no butter, milk, or eggs. I wonder if one day our children will look back at this time of Covid-19 and political turmoil with the rose colored glasses we look back with?

    I am sure they will remember these worldwide exceptional circumstances. Thank God not a world war but still something we will keep in mind and we will appreciate our lives so much more once it is over eventually.
    We have rising numbers in our neighbor countries (when even not that much in our country). We are living our life almost like we used to (although with masks and sanitizers). I can say that I am feeling good over here. And I am so thankful for it!

      Tonight as I wonder where we are headed our little corner is still going down in numbers. We are not back to normal or even the new normal. I think once we can get out more I will feel better.

        I think that is the big difference: Going out whether with or without masks… but going out and going for the usual routines.


  2. My State has moved forward, breathing a sigh of relief, to Stage 5. 👏👏👏👏👏

      Nice! We are holding at 3/4 depending on what area you are in. Movie theaters were just announced to open in a few weeks. I still haven’t gone out to dinner yet. I am still concerned about others as that seems to be the number one commonality among people that have had Covid.

    The world goes through changes, and some seem good and some do not. Ye in years to come how will these changes factor out? Time will tell, eh? Best wishes, no fear need drive us to negative thinking.God is in charge, warmest thoughts, Tasha
