 School is a bit of a juggle, but what makes this different is that the teachers are doing the teaching. I am still involved, but it doesn't require me to sit with him for the full 7 hours. I think we're getting a decent schedule down. 

I'm going to have to do my own studying on Sundays. A lot of work for one day. 

Brianna and Don both quarantining. After tossing it back and forth for a while, the decision was made that William should probably just stay here until they get their test results back instead of popping back and forth between the two bubbles. It may be all moot, but all we can try to do is minimize transmission.  It's a crap shoot really. 

Tim got his second doe today. We will cut it up this weekend. With three deer in the freezer, he's done hunting for the season. 

The case count is 685 today on December 10th. Astounding to me that it was 303 on December 1st. 71 on November 1st.


  1. Wow, those numbers! It sounds like you're doing the best you can and minimizing as much risk as possible. It's all that any of us can do.

  2. I don't think it can be said often enough but darn it, I can't wait for this nightmare to be over.

  3. A first visit
    Via Yorkshire Pudding and Mr Tasker.
    and one I have enjoyed .
    Your blog is eclectic and thoughtful

  4. I think the high-water mark was going to be three weeks after Thanksgiving. I know we contributed about 12 to our local numbers. Stay safe and take care.

  5. Mr. Shife! So glad to see your comment! I've been checking in on you and a little alarmed not to see anything new!


I'm glad you're here!

Just Another Day

Last week, I told you that we got my daughter's birthday card back.  It had a bright yellow label on it that listed the house as vacant....
