Day 38 – What is something that you miss from the shelter-in-place if you have it in your area? Mine is going to the grocery store. I love making al different kinds of meals and if I was missing something I could run up to the store (or send my daughter) for a quick one…

Day 18 – We are just waiting for the Governor to declare that the school year is over for both kids. Neither one is happy. My son has 3 Advanced Placement (AP) tests to take and I know that they were trying to come up with a plan for the students to take those so that…

Day 14 of our Covid-19 Adventure has been okay. I think the further we go into this the easier it is getting. I guess it really is becoming “normal” which is a bit scary to me. Before we did a full not going out for us we did a small shop to pick up a…

Irish Fries


Day 12 of semi-isolation. We are trying very hard to not go out now. Our pantry and freezer are fairly well stocked. We made a last minute run late last night and found the coveted item – toilet tissue! We had 6 rolls at home but with three women in the house well, that is…

Whipped Mediterranean Feta Dip
