This blog site continues to get a lot of traffic even though I’m not writing many new blogs these days. Thanks for that! Like millions of others right now, I’m not leaving the house much these days. Residents of my state (Michigan) remain under a state-mandated “stay at home order” until May 15. We’ve been pretty much “locked down” since mid March. 😷
I’ve been “tuning in” to live streaming trivia shows and doing recaps of those. I’ve done a couple of blogs about trips to the grocery store (telling a panhandler in the parking to stay six feet away was the highlight of last week’s trip, lol). I’m taking walks when weather is nice, and playing board games with my husband most evenings in the basement “rumpus room.” My life right now is hardly exciting enough to blog about! Wait..I did see a huge chipper shredder while taking a walk yesterday 😆
In a while, my husband and I will take a short drive to get…beer! I’ve learned that a ginger beer is now on tap at Original Gravity Brewing Company in Milan. The plan is to have this beer for “happy hour” in our driveway Monday when it’s supposed to be warm and sunny. We used to be able to decide on the fly to go out for beer in local “bier gartens” on nice days, but no more! Bars aren’t open now, so “happy hour” requires a bit of “planning!” We keep vodka and mixers on hand these days, but not beer. We have a brewery about a mile away to get it, or we can visit any old liquor store or grocery store when we want beer. We haven’t been drinking much beer these days because we can’t return bottles and cans for refunds. Recycling services suspended where we live, too. Sorry – you’re not going to persuade a child of a hippie to just put recyclable stuff in the trash (perish that thought)! 😅 watch where you put that cardboard, can or plastic bottle, Mister!
Monday, we’re making a 25 minute drive to get a couple of growlers of beer (and take a little walk around town). It will be worth the trip! Ginger beer not easy to find, especially at stores. And it’s so, so GOOD!
