Supply run adventure

Yesterday reminded me mildly of what a standard, routine day used to be like.

I was busy. All day long.

Reason being, I went on a supply run.

Supply run fashion statement.

The Monkey Bread saga – part 2

The continuation of the Monkey Bread saga continues…click here for part 1 from yesterday.

* * *

My tween girl and I were baking bread (me) and Monkey Bread (her).  While the doughs were rising, and the dishes piling up, and I had my back turned for a moment, she disappeared.

Because, kids. 🙃

The Monkey Bread saga – part 1

“Let’s make Monkey Bread,” she said.

“I wanna bake,” she said.

A little incoherence, and a short update

This morning, I slept till 8 am.

Actually I woke several times since about 3 am. I had all sorts of jumbled thoughts about wicked, strange dreams I longed to get back to so I just rolled over and stayed in bed until 8. Sort of fell asleep again into a semi-dozed state.

Only reason I’m up is because I had to pee and craved coffee. 😛☕

I never do this. I’m not a sleeper-in person. But then, I did imbibe a little last night… 👀

Who’s monitoring screen-time now?

I’m probably going to delete this later.

Remember back about a month ago when monitoring screen-time was all the rage? 😶

I don’t know if I should shrug my shoulders, roll my eyes, or cry.

Hungry pandemic teenagers

Disclaimer: this is an attempt at some silly humour. If you’re [still] a snowflake and can’t take my attempt of describing a slice of life in a locked-down, metropolitan 🇨🇦 family, best piss off before leaving a passive aggressive comment. Sorry not sorry.

The apocalyptic stash of Pringles is now officially gone.

I bought three cans and a few bags of chips before this all happened, and the boys have been out twice for supplies since we sequestered ourselves in our home in IDK, 14, 15 days now.

The chips are gone. All of them. 😶

I find myself facing a dilemma. It appears I no longer have a choice here.

I’m going to lock my teenager in the shed. 😛

Beckoning sunshine during lock-down

*Not everyone has a garden, and this post is not meant to make you feel bad if you don’t. If you still can, go outside and walk around a little, especially if you’re in the northern Hemisphere and have been waiting a long time for spring to arrive. Please obey the physical and social distancing rules and be safe. 

For the most part, we were doing fine with this endless staying home and indoors.

Staying home? Beware of this…

Staying home? Beware of this:

Here’s a social distancing tip you may not have considered until you’ve spent at least 24 hours in lock-down in your own home.

Maintain a distance of 6 meters between you and:

  • The fridge
  • The kitchen cupboards
  • The pantry
  • The normal emergency food stash
  • The apocalypse emergency stash
  • The car emergency stash
  • The kids school lunch snack stash
  • The kids own secret candy stash
  • The birdseed/pet kibble/dog treats stash…

😳🙃😂

More creativity out of my pandemic kitchen

So we’re keeping sane being under house arrest. Mostly by doing creative things. Like cooking. And art. And perfecting the art of Call of Duty gaming. (I don’t know…ask a teenager.)

Rice and corn casserole topped with cheese. Missing, greens…

It’s funny, really, I read about lock-downs in many places across the globe and they’re all talking about school work being assigned to children.

MINE have NONE.
