Look what happened now...
Ready, Set, Jet!
I'm behind schedule today, so let's jump right in. I know what some other vegans are eating during the quarantine and it ranges from junk/comfort food to obsessive immunity builders, with lots of detox/cleanses thrown in for good measure. We went more "middle of the road" at my house. There is some vegan "junk" but also lots of greens and veggies. We really didn't change the way we ate all that much, expect for trying new things when the store was running low on food. Here is this weeks produce/food haul:
I ended up with:
I haven't been posting many food pictures lately because we are eating the same old thing. I do make a desert about every other day though instead of weekly like normal.
Catch you later~
I'm coming to you late today because I took the day to do some much needed mundane chores such as dusting, laundry, etc., #Goodtimes
Actually it felt good to be physically active and see concrete results, so much of what I do online is less "physical" and requires longer timeframes to see results. (Unlike instantly seeing the laundry basket go down, lol)
The sun came out for a bit but it is still cooler, with more rain on the way! I have hope though as the weather is supposed to become warmer starting Sunday.
I posted a bit more in April and thought I would give you the rundown, if you missed anything...
Quick Book Reviews:
Hi, friends! Spring is in full swing over here in our part of the world, and I'm doing a bit of Spring cleaning. I admit that I forgot/lost my password to Goodreads and am a bit late in updating my book reviews. (So be prepared for weekly reviews until I am caught up.)
I read Leviathan Wakes (The Expanse Book 1) way back in February 2019 and was hooked on the series. So before I review the entire 8 books in this series, and overload you, let's begin with book #1.
Saturday Short Review:
Leviathan Wakes (The Expanse Book 1) By James S.A. Corey
James S. A. Corey is the pen name of fantasy author Daniel Abraham, author of the critically acclaimed Long Price Quartet, and writer Ty Franck. They both live down the street from me in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I think I have seem them buying tacos, but I kept my cool and didn't fan girl out. lol.
Hi Travel Family!
I hope everyone is safe and comfortable as we begin April. The sun is shining and its shaping up to be a gorgeous day here in New Mexico. I know isolation can be difficult, but we will make it through April and beyond.
I have been 'nose to the grindstone', so to speak, working, writing and creating through most of the winter. I'm glad its spring, but it seems March just flew by. We have new projects taking off in April and May, (they do not require me to be 'social' other than posting or tweeting) and for that I am truly thankful.
Work for me hasn't changed all that much. Working from home (or a holiday house) has been my gig for close to 15 years now. (I am as amazed as you are, as I write that!) But traveling has changed greatly...well you know. But it won't always be like this and this gives us time to dream up new adventures and study distant lands we want to explore. Maybe April will be a good month to update your travel bucket list? One of my friends in Scotland shared a nice list of places he wanted to visit and I admit to being impressed...I had never even heard of most of these places! Google here we come!
But seriously, I know it's a rough time right now. But we can get through this. You are not alone. We are all in this together and together we make it through.
Hello Travel Family,
I hope you are safe and sound where ever you are in the world.
During a time where it's important to stay home and not travel, we can still get inspired and plan for future adventures!
Where are you planning on visiting next? I really wanted to revisit Italy this year. Hopefully it can still happen later in the year on in 2021. What's on your bucket list?
Morning Travel Family,
Hope you are safe and snug where ever you are.
Work is slowing down for me and I'm super excited to tackle that large pile of "TBR" (To Be Read) books stacked up in my den. I have a few art projects in process and one book is in its final editing pass, so I thought the pressure was lifting a bit. And now, with the new quarantine rules in effect it just seems that the stress has shifted.
We do have plenty of TP and food, because I buy in bulk. Unfortunately most of the stores around here haven't had vegan milk, tofu, bread, TP, OTC and these types of items in several weeks. #Yikes!
But its not all bad, I spent last night excitedly setting up a new bullet journal and washing clothes. #GoodTimes We can roll with the changes, I already (mostly) work from home and my son takes college courses online.
Work trips are cancelled until September and even then who knows? I admit to being ready to travel and feeling a bit restless. I was supposed to be in the EU to look at a house in early May, but that was moved to January. They assure me no one is buying/moving/leaving their houses there and my DP will hold it. But still would like to get on with things.
So it looks like we might be in New Mexico another year, yet. It's not bad here, but its also not Europe.
So how are you doing? Is your town on lock down or are you just going about life as usual?
Let me hear from you~
