@artiemom , @Winchester -- i'm also doing some stocking of some 'essential' supplies. i feel like there's a 'storm on the horizon' potentially, as far as the coronavirus goes. here in NY State we're holding pretty darn steady at very low new cases statewide, but the spread in most states is...
today i'll wash the dishes, and scoop the litter boxes. i'll bake a loaf of bread machine bread, and make some liters of soda. i may very well make some cold sweetened tea, maybe with mint (as that sounds like it would taste really good!).
i've been thinking lately that i definitely prefer winter, to summer with a heat wave and moderate drought.
i still generally prefer fall weather. warm enough but not too hot, and cool enough but not too cold. and usually not too much rain, like can happen in the springtime here.
