Today is Friday the thirteenth. The last one was in March: the last day I was at work and the last day many local children were in school. Eight months. Wow.
Yesterday the Governor expressed frustration with a lack of communication/guidance from the White House on the COVID-19 pandemic and I could almost hear the sound of county executives all over the state of Maryland chuckling. They’ve been calling for greater communication from the Governor for months now.
Food blogger HoCoNomNom is back after a bit of a hiatus with a catch-all post about all the area restaurant comings and goings. I continue to be interested by the local food news even though I know I won’t be able to set foot inside a restaurant for a long time yet. Perhaps HoCoNomNom should do a write-up of all the Columbia/HoCo restaurants offering take-away Thanksgiving feasts.
Tonight the public is invited to a launch party for the Community Ecology Institute Auction to raise funds for the Maker Space at Freetown Farm.
Here’s the link to the event, which runs from 7 to 8 pm.
You may recall that Merriweather Park at Symphony Woods has hosted two mini Maker Faire events at the Chrysalis. The variety of ideas and creations combined with the positive and supportive atmosphere among Makers truly impressed me. I’m exited that Chiara D’Amore and the folks at CEI are committed to establishing a Maker Space here in Columbia/HoCo.
Today is also another event important to me: my twenty-first wedding anniversary. In addition to being the greatest person ever, my husband has also been a faithful reader and supporter of this blog. As you might imagine, we won’t be out on the town or escaping to some elegant out of town hideaway. That’s okay. Even after twenty-one years, a quiet night at home can be just as blissful.
Have a wonderful Friday!
