    We are enjoying a week of cooking classes (among the various offerings) at the John C. Campbell Folk Art School in NC. It is only the second week open since last year and they are trying hard to make it safe for everyone. We drove to get there as I do not want any plane flights. Perfect time of year for windows open and lots of ventilation and eating on the porch.

    I am planning a couple day trips to parks in state. Dates to be determined based on weather, and who all will be going is not nailed down yet either.

    We just returned from a weekend in Payson AZ. My oldest grand-nephew got married. Travel was easy although plenty of people in the airport and on the plane still do not understand that the nose is connected to the lung and therefore is included in the mask. Flight Attendant announced the requirement 3X. Told a man in the row beside us 3X and said "I'm not telling you again". Not sure why adults have so much trouble following a simple instruction when children are 100%.

    Being fully vaccinated and skilled at precautions, we were very comfortable traveling. Another wedding in Dallas in 7 weeks. Yippee!

    Nice to read about all of you having outings as Ontario is still in lockdown and restrictions. Still, the numbers are coming down slowly, the vaccinations are going up slowly so we should gradually open up as well.
    Basically, I am content; gardening, doing lots of online activities and anything that I need is available curbside. Life is serene and very simple for which I am grateful.

    Me, too. I'm glad some businesses can get back to business. As for me, I still haven't been to a restaurant since March 11, 2020. I haven't gone anywhere on vacation and don't plan to. I'm starting to feel like DH who always asks, "Why would I want to leave the island??" I certainly have enough to do here. My clients haven't asked me to travel for research yet and if they do, I'll decide on a case-by-case basis.

    We did drive down to NJ for DS's birthday this past weekend. That's the extent of our travel so far.

    Catherine, do you miss restaurants or is it something you don’t care about. It’s one of my favorite things to do.

    I joke with DH that I would like to go to a restaurant once a year. Since we've moved up here, we just don't go often, because unless we drive 30 minutes to Burlington, our choices of restaurants are a pizza sports bar, an American/Thai casual restaurant and a couple of "fancy" restaurants that we're just not compelled to go to. When we went to NJ last winter, however, we blew our annual restaurant budget in two months in Asbury Park and really enjoyed it.

    We just don't miss it up here! And layer on COVID and we just don't need to go and don't want to go. I mentioned maybe going to this cool drive-your-boat-up place I'd like to go to this spring, and DH feels it's too expensive (it isn't).

    In general, I'm not a foodie, so every time I go to a restaurant, I think about how much money I could save by staying at home and cooking myself. Now, if there were more Indian restaurants up here, I'd definitely make an exception.
