Life on Lockdown…

Wearing a mask it’s not easy for anyone…do it anyway!!! I saw a post on FB that read, “if you don’t like wearing a mask, you certainly won’t like having a ventilator”…truth!!

A new routine…avoid all things people. Singing birds wake us early and insist we show up each day. Morning & evening walks down a quiet residential street …embracing the quiet times at a small corner park bursts of Springtime blooms.

Pretty much everything that comes into my home is purchased online. I’m one of those cleaning cans and wiping down plastic/cardboard surfaces. I haven’t ordered open fruits nor veggies since March. I prefer the no-contact deliveries where items are left at the door. I urge everyone to at least double the Tip for all deliveries.

My favorite easy to use and reliable delivery sites: Vitacost, Target, Walmart, Amazon, as well as their Prime Now groceries delivered from Whole Foods….for a few weeks delivery was limited but with enough time to try again I usually snagged a delivery slot.

New items, I never considered before COVID-19: (in the event we need it).

My prayers for everyone enduring these difficult times…hang in there peeps!!!

Simple fav of mine…tomato & mayo. I’ve been enjoying this fresh fruit of the season almost daily for past 2.5 weeks! Sliced thick, use your fav spread (s). Above, I also spread guac on it and had with side of dill pickles….yum! Gluten-free bread tends to be small so one thick slice of tomato = perfect fit!.

 

 

 

 

 

Fall Season

 

I love Autumn.

 

Here in NY we did not see the usual bursting colors of bright Gold or Red leaves this year – not enough cool weather nor rain. But, it’s Fall.

I started a nice cozy, bulky cowl ,in this beautiful Green. Housed in my new Sheep project bag. I’m using #11 needles and knitting in the round, knit, knit, knit, knit…

The Farmer’s Market is winding down for the Season. I’ve stocked up on Cilantro and Red & Yellow Peppers …going to try my hand at canning small jars of Sofrito….we’ll see how that goes!

 

The Rhinebeck Sheep & Wool Festival

Always a great time up at the Rhinebeck Sheep & Wool Festival. This is 5th year going …I always have blast. We carpool up there with some of my Stitch & Bitch chicks.

We go early, walk a lot, chow down a yum falafel & shop, shop, shop!
