Nope. It isn’t. And we’re only a couple of weeks in. Our county has the second highest infection rate in the state. It’s raining. I woke up early and read all the predictions for our future….eek. Our son messaged us that really he and his family would not be able to leave the Virgin Islands for a year. Getting exercise is hard…what to do about all of this? Nothing really. “Live in the moment” takes on a whole new meaning.

Attention Salemites (“Salemanders?): Aspinwall’s has these amazing boxes which they will deliver…fruit, oatmeal, peach jam, honey, pasta, asparagus, potatoes, avacado and tomato, potatoes and onion, shortbread cookies…if you want to treat an elder (thank you Jessica) or yourself…think local. Keep in touch out there.
