Hello! How’s your social distancing and self-quarantine life? I didn’t realize how much could happen in one week, but so much has happened. Oddly, I don’t feel super panicked, even though I normally am a worrier. Maybe because there is just so much that is out of my hands – except that I can do my part and wash my hands and stay inside and alone as much as possible.
This past week, we actually saw friends and went out quite a bit – which is something that I feel a little bit guilty for, now that we’re in lockdown. But it is what it is and I am glad that I got to spend time with friends.
These desserts are from U:Dessert Story in Berkeley – a matcha crepe cake and a hojicha shaved ice.
We also met up for our second book club meeting (discussing Patsy and Beautiful Boy) and had a Fakesgiving, à la the Coveys.
I made a Molly Yeh hotdish recipe and we still have so many leftovers… I guess that is what I will be eating during this first week of sheltering! I guess a silver lining is that this is not a blizzard or a hurricane and that the grocery stores will still be able to get produce and food delivered. I don’t feel an immediate need to stock up on food, but maybe in a week that will change as well.
Since I’ve got a job now (although now maybe my start date will be pushed back… hmm…) I feel no need to do anything job-related or productive during these times. I’m grateful I got the job before all this started – and now that I’m not trying to apply anymore, I’ve been spending a lot of time on downforacross.com and nonograms.org. If you like crosswords or logic puzzles, you’re welcome! Have fun. There’s only so much TV to watch.
Wishing good health and hygiene for everyone – and for enough entertainment so you don’t go crazy at home!
