Nutmeg & Whimsy

A place to be silly & sometimes serious.

Day 12

Tuesday

A day of high spirits:

My brother Ryan & his lovely girlfriend Della pick up a dog named Allan from the Humane Society. Joining the club of big-hearted people fostering animals as shelter after shelter shuts down. In times of distress, just remember there is a happy pup in Texas named Allan.


Day 13
3/25/2020
Wednesday

11am and the internet dies. A true pin in the tire when working from home. Two contradicting emotions arise: elation and despair. A reason to procrastinate. A threat to job-security.

We leave our home offices for a long walk among the yellow flowers of our favorite park. Pops of color and the freshest of fresh air. The Tennis Courts are closed; however, The Wall stands strong. I retreat to my favorite reading chair: a tree stump with a seat-of-sorts carved into it. A perfect space to open Beloved and fall further entranced by the warm sugared-milk sweetness of every word.

The afternoon persists without internet. Leaving me with no choice but to scrounge around for my Harry Potter & the Sorcerer’s Stone DVD. The case is worn from use and travel. I bought this DVD with my Bat Mitzvah money at age 13. This movie pairs nicely with a creative project.

The evening arrives and the internet is still MIA. Leaving us with no choice but to watch Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. This movie pairs well with a dinner pulled from the pages of a 5-year-olds recipe book. Fish sticks with lemon wedges and cucumber, tomatoes and hummus on the side.

The internet is missed less and less.


With love & yellow flowers,
Nutmeg
