Book Talk 4/3/2020
Nothing here either. I’ve rearranged my office surroundings. Now, I can see better out the window. My desk seems to have more space as well. The wonders reconfiguring things can do. We’ve finally had a couple days off since this whole thing began. It’s nice to relax and not stress about catching a virus while out and about. Been cooking up a storm! I made chocolate chip cheesecake because I needed to use up some whip cream, I’d had a while. Likewise, pudding cookies with white and dark chocolate chips. Potato salad again. And Chicken Parmesan Casserole.
Today, I made Parmesan Garlic Potatoes and Pioneer Chicken. I remembered pics this time too, though I had eaten most of my chicken by the time I snapped the pic, lol.
How are you faring at home? Are your grocery stores still depleted or have they managed to re-stock at least half their store? Ours are slowly coming back though there is a limit on purchases of certain items now such as water. That one’s hard as I drink a LOT of water. Meat is also still scarcer. Somedays their hamburger and bags of chicken but by the time I get to the aisle, it’s picked through and almost gone.
Pet food is another problem. We found some at a dollar store the other night. There’s plenty of wet food still but the dry is harder to find in the brand they like.
Do you think this will all blow over by Apr. 6th? I’m not counting on it. There are too many cases and more each day. Health officials say it could take much longer to recover as in eighteen months to two years. With no vaccine in sight, that could be right. It’ll take a while once they have one to get it made and distributed as well. There’s going to be some serious problems on the road to recovery with work down. I mean how are the majority going to pay for rent, mortgages, utilities, car payments, credit cards, etc.?
Have a great week, take care, and God bless!
