David and I are still staying home most of the time. We figure there is no use taking chances with Covid-19, so we have been just staying busy at home. Besides taking care of our granddaughters a couple days a week we have been working on crafts, trying new recipes and working in the yard. We don’t go out to eat but we do go over to the neighbors on Fridays and sit in their carport. We order out and our men go pick it up. That is the one night a week I don’t cook. Talking about cooking here are a couple photos of something I cooked.
These are Keto friendly recipes. The first one is an almond flour dinner roll. They were good. I also made fried chicken in my Air Fryer. The coating is ground pork rinds. It turned out great. Continue reading “Staying Busy During Covid-19”
We had our first backyard party in our new house due to Covid-19. It was not a big party. Our daughter, her husband and their twin daughters and our friends we met in our neighborhood, which consist of Christina and her 8 year old daughter, Maria.
It was a beautiful day in York, Pennsylvania. We spent the day in the backyard watching the girls play.
Maria has been giving the girls toys she has outgrown like the little tyke car and trailer.
Our little backyard haven is where we spend a lot of time. We might be out exploring now but have made the choice to stay safe at home. we have been having a good time there.
I work in the garden. I am so happy it is actually growing. I bought this cool seed sprouter from Amazon. I bought it to sprout alfalfa seeds but it worked great to sprout all the seeds for the garden.
Last weekend Heather wanted to see her brother, Jared, before he headed back home to Sterling, Alaska. We are still under lock down and social distancing. We know we can visit in our backyard with making sure to stay 6′ between us. It was hard to not touch the girls though.
Well I have been doing all kind of things around the house to keep busy. We have been having some nice weather, so David and I took advantage of it. David takes very good care of the lawn. We have found one big difference is that it needs to be mowed once a week. In Alaska it was every two weeks to a month depending on the rain. I have been working in the flower bed and trying to put a garden in. It is a lot of fun planting all the different flowers and there are so many more things I can grow in the garden here.
Once upon a time there was a little girl, Maria, who was the Princess of York. She lived a quiet life on a quiet street with her Mother the Queen. Then one day as she looked out the window she saw a big, white animal walking down the sidewalk in front of her castle.
Maria tells the Queen, Christina, that there is a polar bear walking down the sidewalk. Her mother informs her that there are no polar bears in York. We live to far south for them to be here.
How did you celebrate your Covid-19 Mother’s Day? Here in Pennsylvania we are still locked down, but my daughter, Heather, figured if she brought the girls over and let them run in the backyard it would be safe. It was really hard to see them but not touch them.
The girls made me some flowers and Heather, Sarah and Cade bought me a new laptop.
Now was the sad time because they had to leave. It was really hard not being able to hug them all good bye.
Jared showed up right after they left, so he still hasn’t been able to see his sister and her girls. Hopefully, Heather wants the weather to be nice on Saturday so she can see her brother before he goes back to Alaska.
Jared brought me the cutest birdhouse for Mother’s Day. I didn’t expect anything from him because he was doing all the work upstairs to make our master bedroom and library. He was supposed to level the floor but when he got here and looked there was a lot more he had to do first. Now the bathroom is plumbed and the whole thing is wired. He has now leveled the floor and laying the sub floor the next few days. I am so lucky to have such a great carpenter for a son.
We ordered in so I wouldn’t have to cook. That was the best present I could do.
I hope you had a wonderful Covid-19 Mother’s Day. Let me know if you did anything fun.
Staying home, social distancing and wearing mask is our new norm but you can work in the yard without worrying about any of the above.
Every nice day David and I are out in the yard doing something. I got the front flower beds taken care of. We even got some flowers because there is this tent in the parking lot near us that is selling plants. I was told they come down every spring from Lancaster.
I got the edging delivered from Aldi’s. I know it isn’t straight but it works.
So a while back David and I saw this woman on the news with a sign in her window saying need beer. She was looking out her window with a Coors Light in her hand. Coors ended up delivering her cases of her beer.
Well David and I don’t care for Coors but we do love our Troegs which is a local brewery in Hershey, PA.
This is David’s take on it. Do you think he will get some beer? Watch this space to find out?
