woman aloneMy husband and I are going into week 3 of semi-isolation. My husband’s employer mandated that the casino and hotel where he works shut completely down on March 16th.  Since then he’s been back twice to finish up a couple of unfinished tasks, but the place is basically abandoned. Only the security crew has to stay on property during the shut down. The Baer House, too has been pretty darn quiet. We’re not on lock down, but nobody’s traveling. We have been getting daily cancellations since the second week of March. We currently have no reservations at the inn until the very first part of June. (more…)

I kind of have an office now. Sort of. For the past couple of years I’ve been writing either in the kitchen or the basement, neither of which are really conducive for writing. It’s been working, but it’s not comfortable. Or pretty. Sometimes you need pretty.

It’s that time again – time for another rousing round of What Haven’t I. That’s right, it’s the guessing game about who I am and what I have or haven’t done. This month the categories are totally random.

As a reminder, the rules are simple: Post your answers in the comments section below. Three of the answers are things that I have actually done, one is something I have not done. You can’t win if you don’t play so put on those guessing caps and get to work.

So, here goes:

1. What haven’t I attempted to play: a) Piano; b) Guitar; c) Accordian; or d) Ukelele

2.  What haven’t I seen up close and personal:  a) A corral reef; b) A cave; c) A volcano; or d) A geyser.

3.  What hobby haven’t I done:  a) Bird watching; b) Jewelry making; c) Scrapbooking; or c) Cross-Stitch

4.  What pet haven’t I had:  a) Bird; b) Hamster; c) Fish; or d) Cat.

5.  What haven’t I read:  a) Pride & Prejudice; b) Grapes of Wrath; c) The Scarlett Letter; or d) Julius Caesar.

Good luck and I’ll look forward to ya’ll stopping back on the 23rd to see how you did. Remember, the fastest and the best guesser will both be awarded prizes.

Word of the day:  Dwerger (this is my favorite word so far)

Fun fact about me:  When I was 12 years old I almost dropped my neighbor’s baby. (Yikes!!!)
