My collection of linked stories -- available at Amazon. But here is the next bit of my memoir: The wind whistles through the eaves and I shudder, hear the siding flap and bang, knowing I’m likely losing some siding on the north side again. I open the door and the cold air slaps me in … Continue reading Carnivore Dreams – Excerpt cont.
Ok, folks. I hope you are hanging in there this Tuesday morning and have toilet paper. In Michigan we are Day One of "shelter in place" for three weeks --except for grocery stores, doctors, post office, essential stuff. We can walk the dog, but keep our distance. Probably worth the three-week try since in Michigan … Continue reading Carnivore Dreams – Viral Thoughts
It’s another 5-degree-day. My generator won’t start. I have no backup generator, a situation we will soon remedy. It is late afternoon, and before I know it, early evening, in what has been a cloudy day. A cloudy day (or a snowy one) means the batteries are low before I even try to start … Continue reading Carnivore Dreams – Memoir Excerpt and Thoughts Going Forward
My husband was laid off yesterday. It will make things tough, but I have to think it was meant to be and he won't be downstate where all the cases of the virus are. For now. I spent the morning arranging finances. The good news is we are refinancing and that should lower our payment … Continue reading Carnivore Dreams – Inspiration
This picked up my week. (This isn't the guy, but take a look.) Happy Saturday. For those of you haven't seen this yet we need a lot more of this:
I hope you are not celebrating. Or at least not in a bar (Michigan is shut down). We are lying low and having corned beef (and cabbage for those guys). It's getting weird out there, but keep calm. I think Trump is on this, so don't listen to those trying to politicize this. Stick together. … Continue reading Carnivore Dreams – Happy St. Patty’s
Well, if you have been following my blog, you would know I suggested a couple weeks ago they just close everything for three weeks. Everybody would have bitched and called me crazy, of course. We ARE doing it earlier than Italy and China and S. Korea and Iran, so we MIGHT, just MIGHT be ahead … Continue reading Carnivore Dreams – Sorry we’re closed
My son, daughter (and their significant others) and my little grandson are all visiting this weekend, and my husband who is working downstate. My daughter arrives today. Friday (the 13th) is my birthday and we are going to dinner in town--something I figure will be the last time I get out for a while, and … Continue reading Carnivore Dreams – Visitors
So many orders because of Coronovirus I cannot get an order. So my advice is to stock up WELL. We have the virus here in Michigan now. So I will probably shop sparingly -- once a week or two, try to stay stocked up. Maybe wear a mask to do it.
Ok, here is a great article on why people like me -- glass half empty -- do better in life and are prepared! My Instacart order never showed so we try again today. And I clean house in anticipation of my children gathering for my birthday (Friday 13th) tomorrow and for the weekend. Might be … Continue reading Carnivore Dreams – AH, I KNEW I was right to expect the worst!
