I have a NEW love!

We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty. ― Maya Angelou When this pandemic hit and things first shut down here in Florida, my family and I were very careful not to go to any shops unless absolutely necessary. This included the grocery shop.… Continue reading I have a NEW love!

What Day Is It?

The best way out is always through. - Robert Frost My job is considered essential. I work for a group of ophthalmologists and have been required to go into the clinic ever since my self-quarantine ended. And because of having to leave the house for work, I do know what day it is.

Oh, if only I could bake right now!

A Puget Sound Surprise
