I am doing NaBloPoMo this month. 30 blog posts in 30 days. Come join me. #nablopomo2020
Five Things Friday: just five things I’m thinking about or things that made my week, or things that I otherwise feel like sharing.
Hey, can I hear from all the pandemic-sourdough starter parents out there? A) are you still maintaining your starter, and b) what are you baking?

Be honest with me: do you guys know any bloggers that support Trump? I am asking this because I want to know if I am living in a bubble because all my blog friends expressed such huge relief about the outcome of this presidential election. Which makes me wonder, do Trump supporters not blog, or are they just not as outspoken on social media (except on Facebook, where I apparently also don’t know any Trump supporters but one, which I recently “purged” from my friend’s list).

On that note, as excited as I’ve been this week about our newly elected president-and vice-president-elect (they just flipped Arizona, baby!), I still feel exhausted by the fact that Trump hasn’t conceded and keeps up the shenanigans with the voter fraud allegation. Of course, according to him (and his minions), voter fraud only happened in the states where he lost. Naturally. I just can’t with the whole bunch. Meanwhile, the Department of Homeland Security calls this “the most secure election in American history”.

Sacramento County slipped back into the highest Covid-tier this week (purple = widespread) and I think some businesses/restaurants are ordered to close again. The direction in which this pandemic is heading right now – right before Thanksgiving – is not good (the US had the highest single-day record of new COVID-cases yet) and we badly need some leadership in the White House to fight this pandemic. Am I tired of it all? Yes, but that doesn’t mean the virus is gone. Jon and I are planning to (continue to) hunker down and I hope you’re doing the same. Don’t risk your health and the health of your loved ones over a turkey dinner.

If you missed yesterday’s post, the sign-up for the Secret Santa (Mug) Swap 2020 is now open (and you have time to sign up until November, 19th if you need more time to think about it). A few people have already committed, and I’d love for you to join us.
Have a great weekend!
