I wanted to account for my absence the past several weeks. I have been at war with a respiratory virus that keeps returning after a barrage of antibiotics. It looks like I’ve finally turned a corner as the last battle seems to be going in my favor until a second unwanted guest showed its ugly face. Yup, COVID stopped by just to say. “Hello!” My quarantine will be over soon and I hope to return next week. Oh joy, Oh bliss, there is nothing like a cough, cold and COVID.
