CLEANUP ON AISLE TWO!

I made Asian food for my sons’ Father’s Day supper; pineapple chicken, General Tao, Chop Suey and fried rice, with little pecan tarts for dessert. As is the norm in our pandemic scene, the kids, having served themselves, were sitting at the other end of the table. My Japanese DIL, who was making her... Sign in to see full entry.

EARLY SATURDAY MORNING

We are having a bit of a heat wave. Although warmer than I like, it’s endurable. The highest temperature so far is 32 C here in the bush. This kind of weather encourages people to escape the houses where they have isolated for so long. Finally greeting friends, the kiddies joyfully romping with... Sign in to see full entry.

A POST ABOUT NOT MUCH AT ALL

I’m not really all that good at fabricating things, so my Covid body suit turned out to be a bust. It ended up in the recycle bin BEFORE the birthday BBQ. That at least was a huge success, even if I didn’t get to hug the kiddies as planned. I still enjoyed watching the little ones romp around, each... Sign in to see full entry.

DOUBLE DIGET DAY

Today is the youngest Rugrat’s birthday; he turns all of 10 years old or, as his siblings put it, he’s now a double digit. Tonight they stopped in to pick up Tao’s birthday box of goodies on the way to their dad’s place, and his brother, who celebrated his first teen-day last Sunday, asked me “Do...

MUCH ADO ABOUT SOMETHING!

It was because I could not go out shopping that I decided to make my Rugrat’s birthday box with some of his favorite foods. It was a HIT! He sent me pictures and rows of hearts immediately after delivery. I laughed when his mom sent me a text today telling me that he had shared ONE cupcake with his... Sign in to see full entry.

WHAT PANDEMIC?

My post on Facebook that I had made Swedish meatballs made it happen. In spite of the virus, the family – well, most of the immediate members – called, then showed up here for Sunday supper. We did the distancing and all went well. My little flea was sitting with her parents at the other end of what... Sign in to see full entry.

AND THIS VIRUS THINGIE...

.My little Rugrat - teenager tomorrow! I’m still in quarantine. My doc called to warn me about the relaxing of rules, saying the virus was still out there and rules were relaxed mostly because there is more room in hospitals now for care. It seems care would not matter much in my condition. Our... Sign in to see full entry.

AND A LITTLE NOTE FROM OUR KABU!

When she leaves for her breaks, I always ask Kabu to text me and confirm that she has arrived safely wherever she's going, there being no-one at her home to worry if no word comes back, and her doing these trips alone. This is the message I got back from her yesterday and, yes, she gave me... Sign in to see full entry.

BUTTERFLIES AND DRAGONS

“Memere, there’s a dragon outside!” She stood staring out the doors onto the gallery. “Oh? Is it a good dragon or a bad dragon?” “It’s a bad dragon!” Her expression was very serious. There was no doubt – this was a BAD dragon! “Oh no!” I exclaimed. “What do we do?” “It’s okay, Memere,” she soothed.... Sign in to see full entry.
