Nothing Loved is Ever Lost

2020 has sucked. It has really sucked. I lost my mom in June. Lost my mother in-law in September. And lost Miss Kitty, who was 20 years young, this week. “The earth will never be the same againRock, water, tree, iron, share this greifAs distant stars participate in the pain.

Whoa Monday

This is not the post I had in mind for today but it's Monday so . . . I overslept. I woke up to husband having video conference with his work colleagues at the kitchen table.

Mayhem

I am sensing a theme for this year. Mayhem. Life has changed since early March. Shelter at home. Social distancing. Face masks. Shortage of toilet paper, Lysol spray and  disinfectant wipes.
