We asked our Friends Board members to share what they’ve been doing during this extended time at home. Here are a few ways people are passing the time until we can be together at Mia again (hover your cursor over the photo for info).
Maria Eggemeyer ordered poultry flavored toothpaste and brushed her dog Annie’s teeth. Annie’s eyes plead— Mia, please reopen soon.
Barbara Proeschel’s book club put on a virtual play on Zoom. She played the cable guy (lower left).
Supermodel Lilly Pulitzer (with frisbee) has been taking long boat rides with her agent, Lucy Hicks.
Sharon Secor has been making homemade pasta.
Teresa Luterbach and her husband Ed have been making secret deliveries to the doorsteps of their adult children. On Easter they got caught before they could hop away!
Julie Holland has been renovating her new old house.
Laurie Fontaine Junker is cooking, cleaning, refreshing news sites, repeat!
Sue Stillman is spreading sunshine with her new yellow tennies, purchased online.
Nikki Lewis made herself an orange and olive oil birthday cake.
Therese Blaine has perfected gluten and dairy-free ginger molasses cookies
Jeanne Scheiderer has been making masks and matching kimonos. Wearable Keith Haring?
A charming birdhouse made by Carol Poulson
Outlaw Shelly McGinnis enjoying happy hour at a closed golf course.
And from Julie Bolton, some verse:
Shadows of life
Shadows of life
on the snow bed.
Mauvy morn. Moving.
Gracefully full of life – no. Only
silhouettes of shadows.
Not real life – simpler,
cleaner than life.
At least my life.
I like the shadows of things –
what is real – the shape,
if not Reality.
