The Time I Stayed in a Hotel Again

I jokingly said on Facebook that it had been so long since I travelled I wasn’t sure I remembered how. There was a bit of truth to that. I came home from vacation on March 14 and haven’t left the island since. For someone who was travelling somewhere at least once a week, three months at home was unheard of.…

The Time I Needed More Space

I saw this meme on Facebook a few weeks ago:   I completely get it; whatever we thought we were going to be doing this spring isn’t happening. Being home on quarantine or whatever we’re calling it now means a lot of open space on the schedule. When I look at my work calendar, it is wide open from about…

The Time I Made Breakfast

The thing about the pandemic and all the discussion around food security has made me very conscious of how I treat what I have in my fridge.

Leftover asparagus and prosciutto for the win!

There were only 4 of them at the time (plus an infant).…

The Time I had Groceries Delivered

I’m a little over halfway through my self-isolation period (thankfully no symptoms so far.) I’m fortunate to be surrounded by people and a community to help out while in enforced isolation.   Friday I had groceries delivered from our local store. It’s a service they started offering to make it easier for people in self-isolation. It’s a great service and…

The Time I Went On Vacation and the World Changed

Three weeks ago on a Thursday night (the night before I left for vacation) I got a text from my sister. They had to postpone their own vacation departure unexpectedly. My niece was ready for vacation and very disappointed to wait. We checked airline flights, schedules and seat assignments. We were back forth and until Friday morning when we booked…
