Corona Diaires - Easter Fun During A Pandemic
The Corona Diaries Week 6 - Forgetfulness

The Corona Diaries Week 5 - The End Of The Beginning

I made a joke a few years ago about Harper going to college. The joke being along the lines of "if there even is such a thing as college by then." Well. This pandemic is making that joke real. More immedately for college aged kids now, but after the fallout of this virus, what will college look like in ten years? What will everything look like in ten years?

Luckily I'm still a great sleeper so these thoughts don't keep me up at night. But I think about them a lot. I also think about even just the coming school year. If there is no vaccine for another year or two and there are also no solid treatments for Covid-19, do we send Harper back to school in the fall? Doubtful. But we don't have to think about that now.

This past week was a busy one with a heavier school load. But not so heavy that we couldn't easily manage without anyone going nuts. Also there were two assignments that got skipped. Oh well!

I continued my sewing project but made an important discovery. You get what you pay for. I thought a nice inexpensive sewing machine would be fine for sewing masks. Masks are so simple. Alas, the cheap machine couldn't keep up. So it took a while to find a better machine that a) is affordable and b) in stock. I had a great chat on the phone with a dude from a SoCal sewing store and within 24 hours the new machine arrived! So I'm back to sewing for us and for a friend who works in a medical office and the admin staff needs masks.

Food in many shapes and types and sizes keeps us busy. I planted a garden and am now regrowing stuff on our window sill. I'm going to plant the celery in the garden today (this was from last weekend and it's already gotten much bigger.) The lettuce and green onion will stay on the sill.

What? It was a steal.

Harper and I made cookies. We have a bunch of leftover dough, so we'll make more.

Harper's breakfast one morning. I don't think she noticed what the mug actually says. LOL

We picked up dinner from one of our favorite restaurants on Friday night. Nickel Diner in downtown LA. It was nice to drive a bit and see the city from afar and then have yummy dinner.

Last night I baked a spur of the minute cake! But my cocoa powder might have been off or did I forget the sugar? It tasted not great. Sad face.

We bought some sprinkles.

Mr. Biscuit is getting a LOT of attention. Plus he's just getting longer.

IMG_2433 SO patient.

Harper had a party.

Harper also tried filters on my phone/camera. I kinda dig what she did with the cats.

This is what our last week's shopping list looked like.

Kurt is teaching Harper how to play volleyball. She likes it a lot.

She also enjoys her journal and writes in it a couple times a week. I promise not to pry, but love seeing what she writes. And she often shares.

Here's to another week of staying safe and feeling lucky for all we have.
