The Brayyy Dee Bunch...The Bradeee Bunch

Yes, we sang it! Our first Family get together ! The isolation I think makes your loved ones even more precious, if that's possible.  My daughter Erin had us all download Zoom and we had our first "meeting". Of course we laughed and sang the theme song then all spoke at the same time as families do. It was 20 minutes of pure joy! We had to end for our youngest granddaughter to have her on line dance class.  We will all meet again this Friday.

Erin sent me this recipe from Skinny Taste for simple and quick bagels. 

One cup of self rising flour, because that's all I have, and one cup of 
Greek yogurt. Since we have an air fryer, I put it on at 280 degrees to pre heat. Really fast by the way.  After mixing the yogurt and flour with a fork I made 4 balls and rolled them into a long tube and joined them to make a bagel. One whisked egg or egg white is then brushed over the top to give it that golden brown hue. Place them on parchment paper and into the fryer.

I sprinkled sea salt on these but you can use what ever seasoning you like. I brought some this morning to have coffee with two friends here at the park..6 ft away..and they loved them.  It seemed like a normal day there for awhile. We all need a day like that.

I still work and my tiny studio in CiCiBlue is getting a bit....crowded.  Under the table we have boxes with can goods and jars stored, next to our basket of laundry,  with unfinished boards half painted and canvases drawn and ready to go. Then we actually have dinner at night as I push stuff back.  If you do any painting or any kind of craft, you know how hard it is to pack up at the end of the day then unpack every morning.  Just the way it is right now.  I've been finding the creativity is hard sometimes to activate in this new way of life but I've promised people that I'd have things painted and that has given me purpose.  I know once I get it going I'll be on a roll.

This is a photo I took of our Chocolate Lab Ozzie this morning.  As I look at it he looks like a Black Lab and he looks like our Sammy that recently went to the Bridge.  Maybe Sam needed to pop back in to say hello. We miss you Sammy Sam.

So we are still here in Florida at the Park we stay at. Today I rode my bike up and around the gas station, usually quite busy but not any more. So I took the time to take this photo.  Lola and I walk up to this field at night and that corner by the fence is her "spot".  The funny part it stays her spot every year.

Riding in we see the Lake. Its small but peaceful and calming. Behind the trees is a large marsh area that goes all the way up to Rt. 1. A few more "lakes" I believe are in there as well as "critters". I've only seen a wild hog out by I 95 but we hear the hounds chasing them during the season.

Across the lake there's a tiny alligator swimming.  Hard to see but he's a speck in front of that single tree. I'll get a better shot of him soon. 

Coming up the main road towards CiCiBlue. She's on the left hand side with the blue floaties on the windshield wipers to protect them from the sun.  With the news of the virus not ending anytime soon here in Florida or elsewhere, we will be putting on our windshield screens to help keep out the heat and sun.  We canceled our weeks stay in Ga. yesterday for the 22 nd of April and thankfully since this has been our home base, we can stay as long as we need to.  The park has officially closed to others. Our fear too is will that be what happens if we left to go North. ? A lot of people are traveling to their homes north without knowing what they are driving into so we are happy we have a safe place to stay.  haha..can you feel my anxiety?

So from our family to yours, please stay safe and healthy. We really are in this together.

Hmm, that was a fun hair cut..maybe I'll go back to it after all of this is over.. Lola said she liked hers too.

Sheila and the gang!!!
