in place. The new reality. At least the place is beautiful and offers plenty of room to enjoy nature alone. I walk for about two hours a day and rarely see anyone.
This view looking west towards our little homestead always gets me.
So what have I been up to in the little cabin? I’m always sort of on edge while I wait for the worst to hit our rural county. There is a chance I will be called in when it does. But in the meantime I have to keep busy.
Like everyone who is lucky enough, I do a little work from home most days. Those walks eat up a good chunk of time and do wonders for my psyche. They haven’t helped shed any pounds from all the baking I do these days though.
I had a virtual party last week with my family and it was the most fun I have had in a long time. Since they live in urban areas, I was able to have cakes delivered to them. Tim generously offered, but I baked my own birthday cake. It was a little over the top with decorations but delicious. Actually I baked half a birthday cake.
I picked up these cards at the last trip I made to the post office. I went because I was shipping some masks to family and friends.
We had cake, played games and laughed for hours! I highly recommend it. My French lessons continue on Zoom as well.
The bee hives are ready and just waiting for warmer weather…and the bees. Not yet though. There’s a chance we will still get some snow tomorrow.
In the meantime, I will continue to bake, cook, read, binge watch, knit, quilt and weave. And stay in place.
