Day whatever of Sheltering in Place

Today I was woken up at 6:00 am by a massive thunderstorm, it's close to 9:30 am now and it's still drizzling. It made me feel quite homesick for monsoon season at home. Of course, a lot of things are making me feel quite homesick nowadays. It's hard to come to terms with the fact that going home is probably not on the cards for a while. My favorite posts on Instagram are when someone posts pictures of their gardens - especially when I know those gardens well. Our garden here is going wild. Dandelions and thistles abound. We need to mulch. We should start filling our planter boxes - plan a Victory Garden. 

It's been a quiet work week for me and I think for the kids as well. Ro bought the kids a microscope. Last night Aditi cut herself accidentally and we all looked at a drop of her blood on a slide.
