We decided to take our friends, Christina and Maria, camping. Christina had been camping growing up, but Maria had never been.
Christina and I decided to go to Codorus State Park because Maria was doing “Go York” which is program the library has in the summer to get people to check out the local parks. Then you find the marker and get a rubbing. There were several in and near the park so we headed on over.
David and I decided to go camping over Memorial Day weekend. I found us a campsite in one of the state forests, Buchannan. We left at 12:30 thinking we would be there in a couple of hours. We had put the forest in google maps and headed out.
At 1:30 we hit Maryland and at 3:18 we were in Pennsylvania again. Thinking we were almost to the campsite we drove all the way through the forest. NO CAMPSITE! We had noticed a place by a trailhead that had brochures so we headed back there to get one.
After looking at the brochure we noticed that there are like 5 different places that are part of the forest. Who would think when you put it in it is going to take you to the farthest away and you need to be at the closest one.
Then from the tiny map I notice there is a name of a road, which I had thought was a creek when I reserved the spot, I put that into google. Low and behold it was there and we were 3 hours away. We finally arrived at 6:30.
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”
Sorry I have been gone for a while but I am still recovering from my thumb surgery. I have finally got my cast off and have been wearing a splint. I go to therapy twice a week but I should be all done by the end of this month. It is getting a lot better.
Anyway we have been spending a lot of time with the granddaughters. They love to play in our backyard which has turned into Oma’s Little Tyke Playground. They love their pool too. They really like it when Oma makes bubbles in the pool.
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.
