So, we are on quarantine day…twelve? Honestly, I am beginning to lose track of the days, as much as I attempt to give myself a schedule and a plan for each day. If I didn’t, I would surely go insane (it is a miracle that I have not yet already.) I imagine people with larger homes and living spaces have a slightly easier time of it. If you are bored or in need of a change of scenery, you can easily move to another room. Take in another scene. Tired the bedroom, go to the den! Fed up with the view from your living room window, move into the office. I have the immense fortune of being able to move five whole feet from the kitchen counter to the couch. And back. And forth. Such variety.
During these times, I need something grounding and warming. A balm to my unemployed soul. Truly, I do not think there is anything more warming and lovely during anxious and uncertain times than a big bowl of soup. This comforting tomato-basil soup is exactly that!
