Fishing {Quarantine Day 3072}

Full disclosure. It’s been a tough couple weeks for the Summit County community and we are having a hard time staying positive around here.  We are all emotionally drained and overwhelmed. We are trying though!!!  Scott taught me how to fly fish and I have been enjoying that new activity.   Tonight, Scott and Alice joined me for a quick trip to fish the Blue River.  I really just needed to clear my head and get some fresh air.  It was a gorgeous day here and it was wonderful to get out and enjoy it.

 Stay healthy and safe friends,


Day 34!!!!!!

We are all still here, hanging out at home.

The end.


Not much to update. We are staying pretty busy and trying to get outside everyday. The dog are exhausted from so many walks. We’ve sorted through the crawl space and are now emptying our storage unit. It feels good to be productive! The girls started making masks today. I’m not sure they are necessary for making dinner but who cares if these two are cooking!

We’ve been running a ton. Here are the girls in front of the high school. They really want to go back. Everybody is missing their friends something fierce.

Paige has been perfecting her French macarons. Baking is good…they taste delicious!

Three positives from this week…

1) I joined a new site where I can check in with my roommates from college. It’s been fun to catch up.

2) Spring break! No online teaching or learning this week.

3) I am going to learn to fly fish tomorrow.

Happy Thursday, I think?


Quarantine day 21

Here we are, still online learning and teaching. We are all healthy and trying our hardest to stay positive. While Scott and I have only left the house to go to the store or post office, we just realized that aside from outdoor activity, our children have not left home. They are grieving the loss of end of year activities and events like the musical, prom and awards nights. Sam learned yesterday that graduation has been canceled. The school is hoping for a virtual version but losing this rite of passage was a tough pill to swallow. Now he is looking forward to college! Here are a few pictures in the daily life with four quaranteens and an antsy husband 🙂

One more fun family activity that got 6 thumbs up over here…


I brought home white boards from school and we downloaded the game on my phone. Lots of laughs and yelling!

Just so you don’t think we are always sitting around hugging and singing songs, sometimes our day end like this….

Margaritas for mom and dad.

Happy Friday!
