"Routine" ​ 😁 ​day in lockdown... how was yours?

Otto is very welcoming and friendly.  Loved talking to him, and the family we met.  Catkin brought us

fresh veggies from her garden.  It was fun walking through the massive area of property they own and down to the shoreline.  We watched them filming the rebuilding of the old original one room cabin.  Momma Moose and her two young ones walked through the yard one day.  

 

What you don't see...even though indeed it's a couple miles down a gravel road/two track to get out to the Homestead, and the cabin we were in next door to it...from there it is only 10 miles down a paved road into Homer with all the restaurants, grocery stores, medical, fishing village, shopping, liquor stores, post office, etc.  😉  Not quite as remote as you think.  


I actually found their homestead on Google Earth a few years ago.  You are indeed 100% right, they aren’t that isolated but they do certainly appear to live off the land. 
 

I find their show to be much more “realistic”, in the TV way, than Alaskan Bush People.  I’d much rather stay where you did than with the family in Washington. They are a bit to much over the top for me.😉

You have a Happy Turkey day too.  What beach area is this in Israel. Thank you.

LOL...interesting about the family in Washington.  😉 

 

Yeah, our cabin had electricity, running water, washer dryer, dishwasher, WIFI....but no cable TV...(which really made for roughing it).  😉

The Explorer? An even better itinerary, and I, personally, prefer to cruise out of Rome than Barcelona...

 

If you're talking about the 9 night Greek Isles Explorer cruise that would have left on Aug 30, I would have been on that cruise also.  I found what looked like a great Ephesus guide (named Sado) who promised no shopping.  Was really looking forward to it.  I felt really bad having to cancel on him.  He understood but I got the impression that all of the cancelations were hurting him badly.  Sigh.

Yes, get the silicone case. They are not slippery at all.  Lisa has had 2 of them with a third coming for Christmas. She loves the colours but be forewarned they do get a bit dirty if you choose a light color.

 

I've been going naked lately.  My phone that is.  I just put a glass protector on the face.  I like the look of the phone better than the case, it's smaller in my pocket, and the phone (XS Max) has survived a few caseless drops without a problem.  It's definitely slipperier than with a case.

I make a ton of this at Christmas, and I add goldfish. I already have my supplies on hand, so looking at yours I want to go home and make some tonight.

Try adding raisins.  Yum.  🤣🤣😉

No, ours was supposed to cruise September 27th, and included Greek + Italian ports. I've found a slightly similar itinerary on the Apex (Sept. 18th, 2021), which now includes Ephesus. 

 

In the unlikely event that this next year cruise will be a "go", I really don't know what to do in Ephesus the second time😁

We used the Belkin wrap around glass protectors on ours. In one year I have had to replace 2 of them on mine from drops and onto hard surfaces.  My clear silicone case has saved the corners from a few nasty dives as well.

My husbands uncle passed away and we finally got to clean out the last cabinet before the house goes for sale. I cannot believe what an empty house looks like. But. I found these treats in a cabinet.

Sorry for your loss.

 

That photo looks like a Radiance class ship  maybe Serenade or Jewel ??

No cable.  No thank you.

 

LOL..but I DID have WIFI.  That would have been the "No thank you" for me.  Not much of a TV fan anyway, but we did have DVD movies there to use, plus lots of time on the open back deck with a glass of wine watching the sunset over the mountains and the glaciers across the bay.  

 

Cable TV..can watch that at home anytime....if I want.  😉

Sunset vs Big Bang Reruns, not sure where I would fall on that choice.  Sunsets everyday, Big Bang is only on..... oops never mind. 

 

Sounds like it was a nice time.  As long as there is Wifi I can get Netfilx, Hulu, HBO Max, ESPN, Amazon Prime so I suppose I can get by for a day or two.

51°F and rainy back here in Cincinnati.  I know that's probably better than some of you, but it's 78 °F and sunny at our Florida house.  Question for those who own 2 houses...are you constantly looking at the weather at the house where you're not currently staying?  Can't wait to get back south for good next year.

Congratulations.  You are now officially a Floridian.   Just think, 2 years ago you would have said "Can you believe it's 51 today and it's November"

Got up early to cook up the brine for Tomorrow’s Turkey smoke on the BGE. Bird will sit in the brine until tomorrow morning.
