Days of lockdown

I have lost count as to what day we are in but it does not really matter at the end of the day. Life continues not necessarily as normal but almost normal. Feels a little bit like holidays at home with a bit of working in between.

Late breakfasts with more cooked stuff than normal, like GF pancakes, GF waffles, fried breakfast etc.

The kids are taking more part in the cooking and our little one can now do noodles, sources, rice and waffles all by herself.

The baking of bread has gotten better with homemade wheat sourdough, made from scratch.

The grapes are growing and after the somewhat rainy week we might actually have some grass growing before winter comes. We have feeding the animals over weeks due to no rain and no grass.

Luckily there plenty of beef and venison in the freezer.

The storm that was supposed to come was not too bad after all. A bit of rain that we loved very much and quite some wind with a bit of thunder and lightning. All that would have been easy to take, if it wasn’t for: Moonshine.
