I’m hoping everyone is surviving their solitude. I personally had forgotten how much I enjoy being alone; it hasn’t happened a lot in the last 30 years. It’s been an awesome time to reflect and get your priorities in order.

I’ve chosen to unplug on social media and it’s been enlightening. People as far as Florida have called me to ask if I’ve unfriended them on Facebook. I’m taking a hiatus from Facebook, not blocking not unfriending, etc. The things I’ve been able to accomplish are staggering ... Lots of walking, putting puzzles together (on number two),  cleaning out closets, donating tons of cloths to the Methodist closet, reading books, and hanging out with family.

Keep checking on our neighbors and our friends who might not feel safe going out. Please volunteer on making someone a bowl of soup, or pick up a prescription, grocery shopping, and pick up someone’s mail. Lots of small things to us can be large for the elderly.

Burger. I know these are tough times for a lot of people living from paycheck to paycheck, so I’m going to do some recipes that come from what you have on hand in your pantry or cupboard, trying help stretch that dollar out a bit more.

List of things I had on hand: pound of burger, one cup of Chex mix, one egg, salt and pepper, half of cup of barbecue sauce, two tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce. Mix all of these ingredients together. I split it in two and made two different loafs. Scoop out the middle, make it so you can add your caramelized onions and cheeses. Add your top on then wrap your bacon around your mini loafs (I used leftover cheese – brie, cheddar and my husband’s favorite American). I sautéd up one onion in EVO. Bake at 325 degrees for 45 minutes and let rest. This was a winner. Remember you can make it your own by adding whatever you have in your refrigerator or pantry. Enjoy.

I also want people to call me if I can do anything. My cell is 207-380-9709 and my email is

I’ve got lots of time on my hands. Also I always have a big pot of soup on my stove top.

Lastly, some of the best news ever – Baby boy Calihan Lynn-Michael Christy was born March 23.  Four weeks early but still weighing almost 7 pounds. I want to congratulate Britt and Sammy, we love you all so much and are blessed. Can’t wait to put the hug on our sweet baby boy.

Be good, kind and make a difference in these troubling times. Godspeed to our world.
