The Daily Cuppa

As I pull out the “good” luggage from my closet, a spider tags along as I destroy its shelter of cobwebs.

Four years since I last touched the cherry red suitcase. Excitement mixed with a dash of anxiety builds as I pack the swim goggles, flip-flops, and sunscreen.

My family of four needs this time away. A pandemic brought us closer in ways I never wish to experience again. Isolation together. Uncertainty settling into a “new normal.”

Now it is time for us to create fresh memories after a year and a half of living in survivor mode.

Wow! Did you notice that? It was your day flying by. This publication is your place to enjoy stories of 150 words or fewer about plants and people, wild animals and pets, gardens and food, how-to and how-not-to — written to inform and delight. Did I mention humor?
