With most restaurants looking like this during the quarantine, it’s important to support your local businesses.

Most offer take out and delivery, so make sure your favorites are able to stay in business. Order a meal and go pick it up, or have it delivered.

Lots of people rely on tips to make ends meet, so be sure to take care of that as well.

Stay well! Sonja

This Week’s Question

If you had to switch professions tomorrow and could do anything you wanted, what would you choose?

I would probably choose archaeology. Not of Egyptian culture, as is so prevalent, but of medieval European culture–mainly England and Scotland. Maybe a bit of Ireland, too.

I used to watch a British show that followed archaeologists around Britain. It was fascinating! I love how they could pick up a shard from a plate or a jug and know the provenance.

After watching this for a while (and feeling jealous!) I decided I didn’t need to be an actual archaeologist to learn the history. And that’s what I wanted: to know history.

Not just dates, but how people lived from day-to-day. That’s where the magic is for me.

That may be why I write stories set in the Middle Ages in my alternate life. I like people to get along so I write romances, stories that tell of the daily events that lead up to love. It’s more fun that they are wearing gowns and tunics!

Let me know what you think! Sonja

This Week’s Question

How many hours of sleep did you get last night?

In our society, a lack of sleep seems to have become a status symbol. I don’t understand it, but have fallen into that trap.

“I slept only three hours last night” with the implied, “Look how fabulous I am/how hard I can work while sleep-deprived.”

I sleep an average of seven-and-a-half hours a night. Less than that and I’m tired all day (not a caffeine-drinker)-more than that and I walk around like I’m on cold medicine. You know that ‘my head is tethered to my neck only by a thin string’ feeling? That’s me if I sleep for too long.

Tell me how you slept last night. No judgments. I promise.

Sleep well. Sonja
