CoronaDiary: 3-28-2020

I have not been sick but this is Day 17 for me. I was early on the self-isolate bandwagon. I can work remote so it has been a blessing to have that framework of stability around my days. Other than the great TP shortage of 2020, we have not had any issues with food. We […]

Rethinking Thanksgiving Traditions

I have always loved the Thanksgiving holiday. I love the traditional holiday dishes, the turkey, dressing, and good ole green bean casserole. I love the desserts. I love being so stuffed your tummy hurts and you have to take a nap – thanks tryptophan. When I was young, I loved seeing extended family, as well […]
