Me and my severely compromised immune system are blocking people on Instagram who say things like, “It only impacts the old or sick.” Thanks for letting the old and sick know how much value you put on our lives. Anyway, touch wood I am doing ok.
Is everyone keeping up on their first aid preparedness? If you’re stuck at home, it isn’t a bad idea. Most serious accidents happen in the home.
I’ve been cooking! This was puy lentils with greens, yellow peppers, and preserved lemon. Quick, easy, and inexpensive.
This was chicken thighs for the meat eaters, with orzo, white wine, capers, and garlic. One pan meal.
That’s hard cooked eggs in a curry with fried onions.
Whole meal loaves.
Apricot filled pastry for Purim ( Hamentaschen).
And even a spinach soufflé. So no one is going hungry and I haven’t need to touch the tinned food or emergency rations. I shopped pre-panic.
I’m getting dressed anyway, at least for the presents. School is out and no reason to leave the house but it still feels like I ought to be getting dressed. Maybe I didn’t need to be quite THIS dressed 😁.
Why do things halfway?
I can’t tell you I know what’s ahead, but I do know that spring is coming soon. For whatever that’s worth, as we had 4 inches of snow this morning. Hang in there, stay safe, and maybe don’t panic over toilet paper. The trees will be leafing out soon enough and you can wipe your arse with that.
Check in on your old, sick neighbours.
