Edit: April 17, 2020 – I am changing the series titles to Lockdown because I want to accurately represent what is going on. I was using quarantine in a humorous way, but I now think the difference is too important to ignore.
I am not writing this series because I think everyone should panic. On the contrary, I think we should continue to make thoughtful decisions about how we spend our time based on a considering short term difficulties and having long term hope.
In some ways, the current difficulty has not changed things for me, personally. I have been gardening, raising animals, cooking from scratch, and sewing my own handkerchiefs for many, many years.
I have adjusted some things though. Some of this is just because things are closing down and shelves are unusually empty at grocery stores. Even though I was not going to prioritize gardening while we built a house this year, now I am settling into our temporary home a little more. My husband helped me quickly whip the small garden area into shape and the garden is starting to sprout.
Without further ado, here is the series and links will be added as the quarantine (suggested in some places and violently threatened in others) proceeds.
