Spring and Other Changes

Wow, it's been a long time since I have been here! I didn't realize just how long until I logged in today. My job keeps me so busy, but now that I am working from home most of the week, I am trying to find the new balance of things in life. 

How is #Safeathome changing your life?  We have done most of our shopping online, and groceries we have done through curbside pickup with the exception of one trip to get our Easter ham.  Even though I love to cook, I would love a break, which is where frozen pizza's have been helpful!  Even though we are in such a rural area, we do have restaurants offering curbside pickup, so we will probably do that tomorrow night, cuz this girl would like a break that doesn't involve mozzarella and pepperoni! AND, I would also like to support these local business's that are trying to stay afloat.  In another effort to support local, we are going to try and order some lumber and small electrical items from a local hardware store this weekend.  In the past that was always a trip to Menards.  As long as these "mom and pop"stores are making the effort to stay open, I do think we need to support them whenever possible. 

So, on to other things... I'm sure you are all reading to much about viruses and staying at home anymore. I've been thinking about my blog a lot since the first of the year, and just trying to find the inspiration to come back. And my camera has been getting dusty, that is just wrong!  Well, inspiration finally hit this past weekend, thanks to my amazing friend Carla at The River.  Thank you Carla!  So, if life cooperates, you'll be seeing me around again on a more regular basis.

Stay healthy my friends and see you soon!


  1. So good to see you update the blog!! You too stay safe and be well :-))

  2. I love that you posted today. Very, very cool. Here's to more to come.

  3. Hey You!!! Thank you for the sweet words.
    Atticus will be thrilled to hear you will be back. Because I try many of your recipes. Jeremy was just talking about our Magic Cake you shared. I need to make that again. He likes it so much.
    Love your photo!
    Stay Well!

  4. It is such a strange time, isn't it? I have to say, shopping for groceries electronically is not my favorite. I get a lot of inspiration seeing things at the store... I hope you are doing well and hopefully this all passes soon! Have a happy Easter!!

  5. Nice to see you blogging again. I find that one of the biggest changes is that everything takes so much longer now. Or maybe that is my excuse for not doing enough with my time :-)
