Hello friends! In another month, it will be a year since I was sent home from the university to work from home. At the time, they were saying 2-3 weeks. In my mind, I was thinking 1-2 months. I rigged a watering system for my plants and left most of my personal items there, only taking my work computer and the important paper files I knew I would need.
A month later I went back to the building for my plants and some other items. The trash had not been emptied anywhere and the campus was a ghost town. At that moment I knew I would be gone for some time. Here we are, almost a year later. Unbelievable.
Hasn’t the year gone by fairly quickly though? Time is funny that way, isn’t it? As most of you do, I busy myself with work during the day and then it’s cooking, so much darn cooking it seems, and then I surround myself with all the books I can to escape from reality. Okay, sometimes I read about pandemics but reading about the hardships of others is not the same as living through your own. Am I right?
Right now, I am enjoying Klara and the Sun which comes out March 2. I should be done with it today and the review will post next week.
Last weekend we made a rare trip to another city so I could visit one of my favorite bookstores. I found this gem in the Valentine’s Day gift section. This is the kind of humor my husband and I share. He told me to take a pic and to post it on social media. He thought it was so funny and I think it is too.
Valentine’s Day is coming up so why not surprise your loved one with this sweet sentiment?
Is anyone watching the Super Bowl this weekend? I am not a fan of either team. I was hoping the Packers would be in it but alas, it wasn’t to be. Now that I am vegetarian I am stumped on what snacks to make. I could make a meal out of seven layer dip and good tortilla chips. Perhaps, I will.
Tell me how you are doing and what’s new. How are your sweet pets doing? Mine is in love with me more and more every day but then she will turn a corner and be totally sick of me! She has perfected her canine side eye. She surely did not get that from me!
