Off the Grid  Retirement at our remote log cabin in Colorado

Wheatless Wednesday

Posted by: Rick

Not much to report today. We spent the day at home, of course. Our governor has now issued a "stay at home" order, as have many other states. That does not affect us much since we've been living by those rules for a while. But, it does make it even more clear that we should not leave the house or go out at all. We are glad we are pretty well stocked up. I did an online order for a few small things we need (yeast to make bread, for example) at the local Safeway and we can pick that up without ever leaving the car on Saturday.

Have been wanting to get to the cabin. I see that the webcam at the cabin is now no longer reporting. It is not clear what that means. It could be the camera just gave up. Or, it could mean a massive power failure, which is hard to imagine at an "off the grid" cabin. We will try to get up there in a week or so and see what is going on. Too much snow now, and it is supposed to snow more on Friday.

No dog walk today, even though I *think* it is still allowed as long as we keep our distance from other walkers.

Grilled steak and baked potatoes for dinner. It was pretty yummy, for me. Not so much for Lynne.

We are about caught up with The Crown and also Picard, so will finish those soon and look for other series to binge. Maybe start Breaking Bad over from the beginning since we missed the last season.

Hope you all are well.
