About 10 days ago, literally the day all the social distancing was announced, my Mom and I were on a plane to Cancun where for 7 days we were an a (warm) bubble while we watched everything go down from the beach.
We were on one of the last planes to go back home before the travel restrictions were imposed.
Since Terreeia didn’t come with us, I’m now quarantined for two weeks with my Mom in her home.

And I’m sad, and most of all worried for all the small businesses and livelihoods that are at stake. Restaurants who can’t survive even one month without customers.
And, I find that I’m suddenly at a loss as to what I should write about here. I miss interacting with you, so I thought I’d ask you, my lovelies, what should I write about?
I spoke to a designer friend of mine when I returned home and she reported that all the stores in her neighbourhood are sold out of vanities, toilets and sinks because now that everyone is home, they are getting to all those projects, that they haven’t had time to work on until now.
When I worked in a paint store years ago, I remember hearing that the paint business is recession proof because when times are tough, instead of replacing the kitchen, we paint it instead.
So over to you my lovelies! How are you? Are you working on projects around your house?
How can I help? What would you like me to write about?
I want this blog to be a place where you can find joy and inspiration and best of all, to help you create a space that fills you with happiness when you walk in the door.
And that, more than ever before, is so important since we are spending this much time AT HOME.
P.S. Here’s my Mom’s Vegetarian Chili recipe since beans and rice are the first staples that everyone buys when they worry that the stores might run out of food:
What do you stock up on in your home?
And hey, don’t forget to tell me in the comments below what you’d like me to write about!
