I got several positive comments on the first part of my quarantine diary, so here are some more glimpses of life in the Klempner household while under Safer at Home orders here in L.A. Again, I’m using my Twitter account to document things as we go along.
There’s nothing that says I love you like me leaving the house bright & early, waiting in Target’s line 25 min, grabbing a cart full of groceries in 35 min, & returning to find no kids dressed enough to shlep groceries from the car, then have one of my kids say, “What? No flour?”
Honestly, one of the highlights of this quarantine has been eavesdropping on both the Torah learning and the banter between my 14 y o’s gemara rebbi and the students. Sometimes I laugh so loud, they have to put my kid on mute.
I hate snails. After eating holes in half of my strawberries to ripen this season, they got one of my freshly planted cucumber seedlings. I want all snails to die. Yes, I know this is an overreaction. Yes, I know about copper tape. #gardeningproblems

spied this violet, a forgot-
