Is it Thursday? I can't really tell the difference between days lately. How about you? Most days have been pretty much the same, except for when I visit a grocery store to stock up, and then I quickly get in and out while trying to stay a safe distance away from anyone else I pass by. It's very strange, to say the least.
Staying home definitely feels the safest!
Mike likes a morning Starbucks coffee, so we've taken to stopping at the drive-thru, and then going for a little drive. Monday we went in search of elk...
and found some west of town, down by the river.
Crossing the road... slow down cars!
There was actually a herd of at least 35 right near where we took these pictures, but too far away from where we were to get a good picture.
Yesterday our drive took us by the lake in the middle of town, and we stopped to get a photo of the newest sculpture that's just been installed in this little park.
Zooming out, there's this:
The small Statue of Liberty was installed here in 1950 as part of a Boy Scouts of America project. Evidently there are about 200 of them around the U.S.
I wonder where we will drive to tomorrow, lol!
What's your favorite comfort food? Mine is Cheeseburger Soup (recipe here
) - an old Taste of Home recipe that I've modified a bit to make it healthier. (Nonfat milk, regular grated cheese, instead of Velveeta, less butter and potatoes - but still very tasty!) Our grocery store had no ground beef (none at all!!!) when I went to stock up, but there was ground turkey, and that worked just fine for this soup.
I had fun sewing up these quilted cases for Carole @From My Carolina Home's Safelight project.
I put these on my weekly To-do list, and that was a good reminder to get going on them.
This year the tissue holder was added, and
those are really fun and quick to make!
With all the time spent at home recently, I finished up my April book club book, and it is such a good story!
I think it may be considered a Young Adult book, but it held my interest throughout the entire story. It's about a 17 year old boy who befriends a 92 year old woman in his apartment building in New York City and the way his life changes because of their friendship.
Hope you are all hanging in there! The State of Colorado issued a "Stay at Home" order starting today, so I will be doing what I've been doing for about two weeks - staying home except for grocery shopping and our daily afternoon walk in the neighborhood.
