What an odd time for us all. I hope this note finds you all safe and healthy. Everyone here has been well so far. My son is out at the farm holding down the fort, and I am home with Amelia. My job as a mail carrier is essential, but I am home with an injured leg recouperating. I wish I could give you a big list of tasks that I have managed to accomplish, but I have just been relaxing with my leg propped up in between physical therapy appointments. This week I made it a goal to work on some tasks that I wouldn’t normally have time for. I have been teaching Amelia, my eleven year old, how to cook. So far we have made baked apple cupcakes, and cookies, and made homemade tzatziki sauce. I tried to pick recipies with a lot of ingredients to measure so she can work on math skills too. I have been doing a watercolor a day following along with some YouTube videos. I had bought watercolors and paper in January as a New Years goal to paint more. Monday was the first day I had opened them.
I hope you all are trying new things and spending time with your families as you can. So far, I have only had to change a few things out at the farm. I had some showings that I have had to change, and Riverside Paranormal has changed their public investigation to July 18th from May 16th. I am hopeful that I will be able to hold the Craft Show and Open house on Memorial Day, May 25th. Watch the website and Facebook page for updates. I keep thinking that things will start getting back to normal, and that hasn’t happened yet. I know other businesses haven’t been as fortunate and the virus has created havoc with many events. I would urge you to support local businesses as best as you can right now, and after the quarantine as well. We will all get through this together.
In the meantime, what things have you been working on? I would love to see some of your art projects. I might do some watercolor classes next year after I get some more practice.
Stay well! Hope to see you safely soon.
