Longer term thoughts

I hope everyone is safe and healthy and for those celebrating Holy Week, I hope you find comfort and peace in your days.

It’s probably good that we’re all different! Some of us have long term views; my husband, for instance, is anticipating Thanksgiving and turkey (which I have never served). With an optimistic nature, I have a shorter view. I see joy in every day things like fresh ice cubes -Thursday was National Gin & Tonic Day, I hope you celebrated.






Do whatever you have to to stay sane but my plea is that you listen to the daily White House press briefing and turn all other TV news off. We are smart enough to hear what is being said and not being said without someone giving their interpretation of it. Things are getting better every day.

What we should have remembered:

  • washing your hands frequently is smart
  • if you’re sick, stay home
  • if in doubt, use a thermometer

What we should have considered:

  • reusable bags that aren’t washed after every store visit, transports germs in addition to groceries
  • our food chain and everyone in it is essential
  • hoarding, in the US, is uncalled for

What we should learn:

  • respect the food we do bring home which means storing it carefully with labels and dates
  • leave the grocery bags off the kitchen counters
  • never go to the market without a list

Eat well, drink (water) well, sleep well to be well.


PPS I posted a new poll – I like to change them up every year or so – take this one on healthy habits!

PPS From Facebook: The truth is, it’s not so boring at home; but it is interesting to see how one bag of rice has 7456 grains of rice and another bag has 7489.
