The shutdown is seeming to go on forever, and I am very tired of being told what I may and may not do. It just feels wrong to me. I choose to live in victory over fear. I’m not going to be stupid or arrogant, but I’m not going to cower. * * * The first of the log cabins is arriving today! So exciting!! Jennifer’s journal, excerpts from May 1-7, 2020
Day 50 of the Great Pause: It’s May Day and the Escobars’ thoughts turn to Maypoles and Morris dancing…and to finishing up the strawberry layer cakes.
Day 51 of the Great Pause: Kentuckians and horse enthusiasts around the world are mourning the absence of Derby Day today, but the Escobars dress up and celebrate it anyway, with music and food.
Day 52 of the Great Pause: It’s a day for lawncare and more prep on the cabin foundations at Happiness Hills, along with FB Live antics and a dinner with the whole Happiness Hills Family
Day 53 of the Great Pause: The Escobar girls participate in Crazy Hair Day for Spirit Week by doing a FB Live recreation of some characters they played years ago for Vacation Bible School. Then it’s back to a normal look to plant annuals at the farm and the grandparents’ house.
Day 54 of the Great Pause: It’s Cinco de Mayo at Cerro Alegre, and also Silly Sock Day for Spirit Week, and also a good day for some quarantine face mask spa treatments at home
Day 55 of the Great Pause: It’s Costume Day for Spirit Week, and the Escobar Girls are all in! Vandalf comes home after some repairs to the air conditioning system, and turkeys are sighted on the farm.
Day 56 of the Great Pause: The first cabin arrives at Happiness Hills on a truck, it’s crazy make-up day for Spirit Week, and the day ends with a picnic in the upper field
