Last month, I lamented how difficult it was to get a good spread of photos while in quarantine. I entered May determined to see more. Consequently, I had a lot more photos to sift through to choose my favorite dozen, and the choice was far more difficult.
As always, these photos were taken by me with no filters on them. They are not necessarily the best photography – they are simply photos that appeal to me for one reason or another.
Top left: a majestic photo of Jojo. Bottom left: a multicolored blooming in the garden. Right: an array of bags I’ve crocheted in the past (I just really love the colors in this photo)
Top left: s’mores over the firepit. Bottom left: native flowers at Eisenhower Park. Right: Atticus in ultimate love-mode
From left to right: shadows on an evening walk; layered lemonade cold brew; Morrigan and me after we finished digging up the first xeriscaped section of the yard
Top left: Mildfire Coffee, the first business I’ve personally gone to since quarantine began (love their colors AND their coffee). Bottom left: Nimi sleeping in the sink (a habit she’s picked up this month!). Right: hipster soup (aka homemade vegan, gluten-free, coconut-ginger-lime sweet potato soup with lentils and kale)
As a bonus, I’m including my three favorite photos of May taken by Jason.
From left to right: the family sheltered in the bathroom during a tornado; boxing in a dress (ha!); a grad photo that seems to get the real feel of the quarantined-class-of-2020
I might be absent from the blog for a little while to focus on other things. There will still be an occasional post or two, and I’ll be keeping track of covid-related happenings for my next quarantine diaries post. But generally I feel like my voice and time would be better spent in other places right now. Stay safe out there.
That soup sounds delicious!
It was! Honestly, I have to admit that it wasn’t as filling as it should have been given the calories in it (extremely high fat with the coconut), so I wouldn’t plan to have it again unless we modified the recipe. I don’t do well with super-high fat meals.
