I'm sewing missing buttons, sewing up the holes in pockets, patching holes in coveralls and long term repairs as my grandparents did. No switch is going to magically bring us back to normal. The world has changed forever. Most people don't understand that.

There is a web site with a huge amount of valuable and factual information. The authors are experts in their fields. It is not a chat room. You cannot comment.

Alpha Disaster Contingencies

"A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently and die gallantly. Specialization is for insects."
-- Robert A. Heinlein

I have done every single thing on this list except the last, but I have looked it in the face and did not blink.

Walked the Tannery Loop Road in Amherst along the West Branch of the Union River. Saw a butterfly. Lots of trees down. Heard generators running.

When someone is trying to be helpful, would it hurt to say thank you. I think more people need to be thankful for what they have instead of complaining about what they don't have (If you don't have the virus, seems appropriate to be thankful for not having it.). An attitude of gratitude can be very uplifting.... year round--not just at Thanksgiving.

Need some inspiration? Google attitude of gratitude. Here is a link to one article I found. http://executivesecretary.com/an-attitude-of-gratitude/

Fresh cake yeast seems to have fizzled out in Maine, dry yeast is useless.
You have something to look forward to after the stay-at-home order is lifted--the adventurous quest for fresh cake yeast, possibly a trip to Boston. If you ask nicely, maybe someone knows where you can find it in Maine and will share that knowledge with you... In the meantime, consider making something that doesn't require fresh cake yeast.

A quick trip into Ellsworth for shopping, a big event! There’s a great specialty food and cooking store in Ellsworth called Rooster Brother and they are open for business for curbside pick up. I bought all the ingredients for Puttanesca, a bottle of good red and a ciabatta. And 2 pounds of their coffee that they roast right there. Quick trip to the post office followed by a mad dash through Hannaford. Only had to wait about five minutes to get in. All the folks who work there are so friendly during this stressful time.

To offset the aforementioned puttanesca I walked 3 miles along the Sunrise Trail With a side trip up the hill behind the high school to the water department standpipe. A good Maine day.

What time is dinner? I'm on my way? oh wait... That sounds fantastic! I have spaghetti sauce with hot Italian bear sausage simmering. There's a baguette I made over the weekend that should be used so probably crostini and salad as sides.

I planted tomatoes in the high tunnel, cut spinach, pulled radishes and weeds, and cut a few apple twigs to force yesterday. Last night was so beautiful I went out to listen to the night birds and frogs. Days like yesterday make rainy days better.
