“May we think of freedom, not as the right to do as we please,
but as the opportunity to do what is right.”

    Green Beans, Goulash & My Garden

    My son and I are making a quick weekend visit to my hometown for my great niece's high school graduation (which is finally happening), and after several hours on the road it's always nice to sit down to a delicious home cooked meal. Mom whipped up a huge batch of very cheesy goulash for the three of us, but I supplied the tasty side -- fresh green beans. Thankfully, I had delayed our departure from the city long enough to pick a few green beans from our garden and they were delicious!

    My Corona Life: Bewitched by Betty & Haunted by Homer

    How are your stay-at-home days going? I can’t lie, y’all. A month into this thing and I’m seriously starting to feel like I'm under house arrest more days than not. Our restrictions here were extended into May, which I thought would and should happen, but without a specific end date in sight I feel afloat in some surreal limbo life. I don’t do limbo well! That being said, I’m learning to control what I can, accept some things that I can’t and take out the rest on my refrigerator. Good thing we aren’t closing in on bathing suit season. Ugh!

    Adjusting to the Corona Life

    I woke up early Sunday morning to make a quick trip to the grocery store ahead of the throngs of hoarders, panickers and just plain I don't carers, and somehow it felt a bit like suiting up for battle. In these days of the Corona Virus, careful thought and planning goes into executing the safest route, armoring up for the campaign, planning an escape route and hitting the extraction point for all clothing, shoes and masks used in the simplest of activities.
