Distraction Challenge 12 #ADC

Goodness me! If this pandemic doesn’t stop soon, I’ll go bankrupt over all the audio books that Richard is churning out. I had rather hoped that his hinted at “special something” was a tiny little freebie, but ok, I am curious about the Chekhov short stories. Mind you, I *do* think it smarts a tiny…

RA As Breakfast Sprinkles

What a great start to the week. Just in time for breakfast, the post man delivered a package from the Netherlands with a speciality that is unavailable outside of the Low Lands.

Misheard Movie Quotes

My friend Abby posted a tweet the other day about the lockdown stage where you are in “spouse chews loudly” phase. Touché. Although the lockdown phases in my house also manifest in other ways.
