Hello friends and happy Thursday? are you finding that the days are sort of running together? And unless you are homeschooling children have you noticed how quiet it is? It usually is quiet at our house but it seems like just knowing that you are not going to see anyone or go anywhere makes the silence even louder.
I have been working from home and getting a lot of things done at home that I don’t usually have time for. It’s sometimes the little things that never seem to get taken care of and when you have extra time on your hands, at home, they do.
I have been doing a lot of cooking. We haven’t had take out in weeks. I have to say I feel better not eating a lot of take out. I have cooked a lot of meals. Tuesday I made an amazing meat loaf and today we had the leftovers for sandwiches. Well it will actually last for a few days. I made sourdough bread and cookies. I needed to use up some milk in the fridge before it went bad so I made a coconut cream pie. I still had more than half a gallon of milk that needed to be used so I am making chocolate pudding to put in the refrigerator. This is probably not a good thing but I just can’t stand to think of anything going to waste.
Homemade sourdough bread.
The morning air is soft and I sit outside and drink coffee and then eat my lunch outside as well. It is so wonderful!!! Everything seems to have slowed down. Every time I sit down the fur babies clamor for a spot on my lap. I hate the reason that we are forced to stay at home but yet I am loving being at home. I am respecting and enjoying the quiet. I feel humble.
Scruffy loves having mommy out on the deck with him.
A perfectly beautiful day. Only about 72 degrees and the air feels so soft.
Scruffy and I have been doing many walks throughout the day. We love it!!! We enjoy checking out all the flowering trees and shrubs.
The Dogwoods are blooming and they are beautiful!!
The Butterflies are everywhere
I think this is a hawk feather.
I have been knitting and just finished these socks. I am getting a lot of knitting done.
My irises are blooming!!!
I hope you are hanging in there and enjoying being at home as much as I am. Let’s just wait this out and do the best we can and things will get better. I truly believe this.
Love your day your way!!!
