A Reprieve


October 27, 2020

It’s hard to know these days what to do when someone in the house is sick.  But out of an abundance of caution, I’m quarantining myself for the next ten days.  “Just to be sure.” 

Three of the five of us living in the house have already been sick for a few days.  The other two have certainly been exposed, but it seems they will escape it unscathed. 

It’s hard to find a silver lining in feeling poorly, but today I am feeling about eight percent my normal self.  To get back the remaining twenty percent, I am laying low, reading books and watching far too much Amazon Prime and HGTV.  My silver lining today is clearly… being lazy!

Silver Linings…

started as my personal response to 2020’s global pandemic of COVID-19.  When I published them locally,  I was surprised by how much people responded to them.


I hope they bring some positivity to you, too, during this unsettling time
