• Risks, realities, and reactions

    So I’m nodding in agreement as I read this article in the Washington Post about how people react nowadays when their door bell rings. Great article, btw, sounds like me lol. These days, even answering your door…

  • Still raining

    Day 65 and it’s raining today. Started with a huge electric storm (haven’t had one of those in a while) and some 6 hours later, it’s toned down but still going. It’s this kind of drippy rain…

  • How the ostrich views the duck

    Ooh, where are we now? Day 58, I’m guessing? Who’s even keeping count anymore? So far, my days are humdrum. No movies. No TV (for the past 25 years, not even kiddin’). Simple meals. Meditation. The ostrich…

  • Between a fog and a dream

  • Supermarket Sprint

    Hey guys, it’s Day 10 of my hibernation. In the early morning of Day 7, I skipped out of the house to the grocery store after realizing we were running low on fresh fruits and veggies. To…

  • Social Distancing

    The friend

    So yeah, I’ve officially gone into hibernation. After a whole month of bulk shopping for the apocalypse, I couldn’t wait to get off my feet and crawl into my cave. If you’ve been reading this blog, you…

  • How did we even get here?

    And so for the nth day in a row, I’m sitting at home like a good girl, my nose in books, reading, writing, taking the odd afternoon nap (read: dozing off in this ridiculous heat and humidity,…
