When I started this blog, I intended to share the many adventures we had traveling all over the country and, more recently, continent! A bit frugal, we often "cook" most of our meals rather than spending so much on restaurant food. Don't get me wrong! We spend our fair share of money in fine local establishments and used to enjoy it.
I say used to enjoy it because we have had all of our trips canceled so far this year and haven't set foot in a restaurant or bar for ages. Some are open here in Delaware, but we haven't screwed up the courage to go. We've done plenty of cooking at home of course, but haven't thought to share this more mundane activity as I would have when traveling.
We have a trip upcoming - a surf fishing trip to the Outerbanks of North Carolina. We have a house and will likely bring our food with us, so it should be relatively safe and, hopefully, fun!
To be honest, I am afraid to get excited. It's a month away and who knows what will happen between now and then? An election at least.
Earlier this year I had never even heard of Zoom, now all my meetings are via Zoom and not in person. It's not the same. I miss seeing people. I miss the smile of recognition, hell, even existence.
I counsel my injured workers all the time: One of the things people miss most about not working is socialization - when we see people they know they exist. I have always believed this, but know I know it.
Did you know Google assistant will send you a joke or pay you a compliment daily? Neither did I, but I do now. Sometimes it is just enough to pick me up, even when I don't know I need it. We all do.
I think for now, I'll share some of the cooking we do at home. At least until we can go back out into the big, bad world, whatever that will look like!
Stay safe and enjoy those in your bubble or pod or whatever it is you have for you and yours....
