Shadows and Tall Trees

Day 20 Happy Saturday, friends! Today has been a good day. We all slept in and putzed around for what was left of the morning and early afternoon.  I did some cleaning and laundry while Terry worked outside and Arden played in her room. I took Romeo for a long walk and noticed that this […]

Shake, Rattle and Roll

Day 19 Well, it’s Friday. Everyone have big weekend plans?  Yeah, me either. We are running low on meat and milk and bread, so I guess I’ll need to make a plan to go get some supplies this weekend. Other than that, nothing on the agenda. I was telling someone the other day that weekends […]

What’s Going On?

Day 18 Good morning, party people!  How are we doing today? Yeah, me too. This morning I have some burning questions rolling around my mind.  Since we don’t have anywhere to go or really anything to do – let’s discuss. Why have I started getting emails from random businesses I have never patronized?  For example, […]

Let the Sunshine

Day 17 I almost forgot to post today!  Not because I’ve been so busy, just because I think my brain is actually starting to turn into mush.  The days meld into each other and I thought I had done this already for today.  Clearly I have not. Today I was very productive. All the laundry […]

Lovely Day

Day 16 I’m not going to talk about today. Other than to say we did a video chat with some friends who live out of state, and my people-starved child talked a mile a minute for the entire time we were on with them. Our friends on the other end of the call were very […]

Tired of Being Alone

Day 15 The beginning of week number 3…and aren’t we all so excited!  Arden came into my room this morning while I was watching the Today show and saw that the social distancing guidelines have been extended until April 30th. That went over really well, let me tell you! A whole month more of this […]

What Now

Day 14 I don’t have much to say today, other than that the level of frustration I feel over the inability to have any clear path towards when this will all be over is at max capacity.  I understand that control is an illusion, but I like my illusions. I took a few hours today […]

Welcome Back

Day 13 Lucky 13.  Woohoo. We have reached the 2nd weekend of the stay at home/isolation/social distancing/no one is coming to save us coronavirus thingy. Today in our neck of the woods – pun intended – we are under severe weather threats. That seems about right. Nothing says Happy Birthday to You like a world-wide […]

Holiday

Day 12 Today I declared a Forest Academy holiday. We are taking a three day weekend. We will read our book assignment and get dressed (maybe), but we are not going to adhere to a school day schedule.  I’ve decided that the book I’m reading needs to be finished today, and that I want to […]

Blue Clear Sky

Day 11 Remember how I said I needed to get my driver’s license renewed before March 30th?  Yeah, that hasn’t happened. A bit of a bright spot today, however, is that the DMV is closed until at least April 10th; and all licenses that expire during this time are extended until 30 days past the […]
