The Hodgepodge is back! Visit Joyce and join the fun.
It is fun to be back, thank you so much Joyce. My daughter and son are both in high school now. That is something big because we homeschool :) They are both doing extremely well. I am even more thankful now since the schools have almost all switched to online learning because of COVID-19. It wasn't an adjustment for us. We just keep plugging away at our BJU distance learning curriculum.
2. Might as well get this out of the way early on...COVID-19. On a scale of 1-5 how serious are you about keeping your distance? Explain. fyi-I didn't create the scale but have seen it several places online. Also fyi-we won't only have virus related questions each week, but for this first one it feels right.
1-Not at all, living normally
2-Cautious but still going out
3-Going out as needed, mostly home or working from home, still seeing friends/family
4-Extremely limited, only going out when unavoidable, minimal contact with people
5-Full lockdown, no one in or out
I am a 4. I have only been going out to walk. We did bring things to family members one day but didn't stay to visit. No hugs or kisses hello or goodbye either. If what they are saying is true about carriers not having symptoms I think it is wise to keep our distance. It feels very awkward though. I keep my distance and sanitize, sanitize, sanitize.
3. Raise your hand if you think you might run out of steam in the cooking department before it's all said and done? What's something delcious you've cooked or eaten in your own kitchen in the past week?
I think having leftovers has been helpful for me so hopefully I don't run out of steam. The stores are limited so it seems I have been cooking with what is available and not planning meals ahead of time. I cooked a lasagna on Sunday and I don't do that often. It is a family favorite.
4. What's a television show or movie you've seen recently (it could be an oldie) that you really liked?
Last night I watched The Wall which my husband had on the DVR. I liked it because the players were a father and daughter from Long Island. The father was a NYC firefighter who worked during 9/11. The daughter was a nurse who worked with children. They were a great team and you could see how much love their family had for one another.
5. Share something funny you've seen or heard this week.
It may have been last week but I found this hysterical!
