The year is finally coming to a close. This has been year 2 of the pandemic. In the earlier part of the year, I was still contact tracing and enjoying it, though cases had died down significantly and I was able to return to my home department in July. In January, we had a horrible windstorm, which knocked part of
So, I’ve been missing for the past year. What have I been doing? Well…. nothing, really. I’ve been in isolation like the rest of the country and the world. Or at least, that’s what I thought. You wouldn’t think there was a pandemic happening if you stopped by the local Costco. Everyone is out in force, buying plants, patio furniture,
This is just an observation. COVID-19 is very contagious. Extremely contagious. Back in December, when it was first discovered in China, the United States had no real clue as to what was coming.

As promised, I’m back from my trip abroad to the UK with photos of some of the lovely things I saw. I don’t think I can say enough good things about Belfast, Northern Ireland. I loved the city, and I loved the people I met. I loved walking the city center and getting lost amongst all of the street art.
It’s been over 2 months since I’ve updated the blog and I’m very sorry for being away for so long. There’s been a lot happening in my life – some good, some bad… and a lot of it unexpected. It seems like it’s been forever…. What’s Happening? So, what’s been happening? I’ve been getting back into reading a bit. (Well,
