Dispatches from Home Part 2

You know I am taking social distancing seriously when I make my own coffee at home on a Sunday morning. Because Naoto works every Sunday (and he is the primary home coffee maker,) I usually take a stroll on those mornings and either grab a Dunkin or a Starbucks. But in an effort to keep my community safe, I decided it’s best to drink coffee at home for now. I drank the entire pot by myself. Presley was my coffee co-pilot.On Sunday night we played Rummy and had snacks. Naoto made this Smitten Kitchen cannellini bean appetizer. (I highly recommend it–so garlicky and cozy and we had what we needed in the pantry!) And we enjoyed some seasonal Irish cheese and some wine. I went to work on Monday and Tuesday this week to get some stuff settled for the congregation. I am not sure what my job is going to look like after this week. Some of my job can be done from home, but some can’t. Some of my job kind of goes away because regular business has ceased, so I can’t imagine needing to go in three times a week. But again, I’m not sure. I updated my calendar (pretty much just canceling everything since I’m not able to plan anything right now!) and wrote a few letters…I’m listening to a lot of NPR which is better than watching cable news I guess.Yesterday’s adventure was a stroll to the blue mailbox on the corner and learning of the first official diagnoses in our area. I’ve been journaling in my Travelers Notebook because I know these days will be fuzzy in the future and it will be interesting (someday!) to look back and see what was happening during these crazy times.And Happy Birthday to my dad!! We were supposed to see each other this week for our birthdays, but…we’ll have to celebrate another time. (This picture was taken at Costco earlier this month when we drove down to see my parents. I’m so glad we were able to have that time together before this whole thing started.)

How is everyone holding up? Are your closets cleaned out yet? I made my to-do list but haven’t checked anything off yet…typical! Take care, everyone!
