CoronaDiary: 4-4-2020

The days are all starting to meld together. Florida instituted a stay-at-home order for 30 days – ruining our ‘bug out’ plans because the sheriff did us the courtesy of stopping by several times last Thursday to let the boys know it would be enforced.

CoronaDiary: 3-28-2020

Zero Proof Cocktails Anyone?

I am working toward my itsy bitsy teenie weenie yellow polka dot bikini bod. No, who am I kidding, I’m working toward my, let’s not look like a breaching yellow submarine in a one-piece bod! And I’ve realized there are certain things that I just can’t give up or cut back on, namely the piping […]
