We are still here and all vaccinated with Moderna. Because of Ellie our whole household and her carers were all able to get vaccinated. Dave and I are classified as "in home unpaid essential healthcare workers". Ain't that the truth! ;-)
What I love about this book is that it's about controlling reflux with diet. Have been revamping all her recipes and need to expand her diet anyway. It's an ongoing dance.
This spring some of her favorites are:
Ellie's favorite hairdo - the big bun!
Footloose by Kenny Loggins. We tried to watch the remake but it starts with a car crash - do not recommend. She liked the 1980's version better anyway - go 1980's - it's way less violent.
Ellie says that after the pandemic she wants to have a family reunion and go to Africa - specifically - Egypt! I'm so there...some day. She also wants to go to her local coffee house again and do iPad club there. She misses the bustle of the place.
She's still into dance parties and jam sessions.
We are nearly done with all the Harry Potter books.
She was doing virtual school for so long one of her favorite things to do was go visit her school at the weekend and look in the windows. She definitely struggles with the constraints of school (e.g., the schedule) but she certainly loves it just the same.

That's the latest. It's a hard time globally for everyone. Waayy harder for some than others. Everyone is under so much pressure. There's tension between those with privilege and those without and COVID deaths report that better than anything else. I am hopeful that coming out of this there will be social and environmental innovations that make the world a better place.
Hope matters. Everyone is in their shadow - so compassion matters too.
If there is anyone reading this - I am wishing you and your loved ones grace. Wish that for me too. I need all the help I can get. ;-)
