I struggled to write about the events in the US this past week. What to say? How to begin? And so I looked to a former student to help me make a start.
So impending birthdays, too much isolation, and too much hot and humid weather is enough to make anyone feel lethargy. Even me, the great cheer-er-upper.
What do you miss from life before Covid-19, before the stay at home orders? If I’m honest, what I miss most from that “before time” are the small things.
If it’s spring it must be time to harvest wild fiddleheads. I grew up with wild harvests. And Hubby and I carry on that tradition.
Have you had days during this social isolation thing when adulting was hard? When you wish that someone else would be the adult in the room?
I had a wobbly weekend, my friends. Felt a bit of isolation anxiety. But like those toys from the seventies, I wobbled, but I didn’t fall down.
What’s your “Isolation Diary” look like? Have you fallen into a rhythm. We have. And it’s a rhythm that I find very comforting.
We’ve been to a fictional afternoon tea party, today. We’ve shared good food and drink, great conversation, and lots of laughter. Just what we all needed.
There’s nothing like a little gentle reading to help us cope with all this pandemic stuff. Gentle reading and cheese scones. Works for me.
In these days of social distancing, we’re talking a lot about food at our house. Deciding what we want to eat, cooking it, then talking about it afterward.
Whether it’s via the comments section, social media, or email, I’d love to keep in touch. Join me at any of the sites below to continue the conversation.
