Covid-19 Dementia Love Uncategorized

Valentine 💝

My sister

As many of you know, my sister Ginny struggles with dementia. Just before lockdown, one year ago, she moved to a memory care home blocks from the house she shares with her husband. I last saw Ginny in November 2019.

My dear brother-in-law is a terrific support and sends photos of his visits. I wanted to share this one and wish all of you a peaceful, loving Valentine’s Day.

Moving Along…

We are adjusting to life without Dylan the Tabby and appreciate the hope of President-elect Biden. The virus is raging in Minnesota, however, so caution is still the rule. Bagheera is finding his way with the help of a glorious cat-cave that we got him as an early Christmas gift ❤.

I am an avid follower of the Lincoln Project; a necessary outlet for me as the U.S. continues to descend into madness. I invite prayers from all civilized countries as we work to regain control of our democracy.

A Community Despairs

When will we learn? My cities (St Paul and Minneapolis) are, literally, on fire.

“No justice, no peace.” We demand justice for the murder of George Floyd.

Curfews are in place. Peaceful protests continue. We walked through our neighborhood this afternoon. A very different place. The world has seen the images. Cities around the country are joining in protest.

Here is my home community:

Community Covid-19 FOOD

Waste-not-want-not soup

I am even more mindful these days about not wasting food. Last evening’s meal was a hodge podge of leftovers and some broth. It was quite good!
