Happy Monday to you! This is day one of COVID19 school closures. Our district’s schools have been closed for the next two weeks, although the surrounding school districts have planned longer closures of between 3 to 4 weeks so I suspect that this two week closure may end up being longer?? At any rate, we are waiting for more information from the school and teachers about what we are supposed to do, as the school closure announcement only came late Friday afternoon after school was out. Luckily my third grader’s teachers are very adept at online stuff, as they use Google Classroom in class, and they have been maintaining a class website for a few years now. But all the teachers sent the kids home with whatever workbooks they had in class so we will just await instructions!
Meanwhile, it was a very wet weekend, a much appreciated wet weekend! So a lot of staying in, Legos, baking, cooking, reading, and of course, Netflix.

I’ve got some tangzhong-style milk bread in the oven and I made laksa for lunch.
This week, I plan on making shepherd’s pie, maybe some chicken curry. Pasta probably.

That cake looks amazing. We’ve made an olive oil cake but not a chocolate one before.
My son’s spring break is this week and we were having a Staycation anyway. But they just texted today that school will be out until March 31 at least. It’s all so crazy and changes all the time. All the best to you and your family!
