Not sure where the week went. Maybe it’s because I’ve been on so many meetings I cannot remember what’s been going on. Many people these days are meeting all the time on the computer. I’d have to say— what a drag. Thank goodness I get to be out in the field taking care of the animals and the people, and only part of the time on my computer.
With the weather, all our yard work projects came to a halt, so we’ll jump back to that next week. We’ve gotten loads of Spring cleaning done as Brooke continues to work her way through rooms, sheds, closets, and more.
Perhaps the nicest thing is we’re doing some animal programs for Summer Camp. Our Camps@home are occurring virtually this month, but we’re still having the kids discover the scientist in themselves by looking at animals. It’s different than our typical program, but it’s nice to be talking about animals with kids again.
As the state is opening up, we’ve got to keep up the commitment to safe practices. Additionally, finding gratitude, as well as smiles, are important to me and my health and well-being. This week, I’m sharing what I get from my kids. My youngest has been amazing throughout these past three months. She has been positive, found structure, started cooking (homemade tortillas for enchiladas and a spicy tofu/green bean dish that is awesome), and going to local farms to pick up produce for us weekly. She, and my oldest talk daily, in Spanish. My oldest has found critically needed cooking ingredients and visited us regularly outside in our yard.
I’ll make sure to have more pictures of non-human animals next week, but for now, hope you enjoy all the humans I’ve been spending time with.
