Readers, Welcome to my blog (formerly Birds, Blooms, Books, etc). I'm entering a new decade taking on the challenge of moving from Maryland after living there 46 years and learning about my new home here in New England in the Live Free or Die state - New Hampshire. Join me as a write this new chapter of my life.

 Back from a wonderful vacation last Saturday, but when a sore throat started the morning of our return trip home, I figured a test was necessary on Sunday morning.

My first ever positive test.  So at the urging of youngest daughter I called the doctor on call and she prescribed Paxlovid - 5 day regime of drugs morning and night to mitigate this virus.  I will take another test on Friday to see whether I can come out of isolation.

Dan has tested negative twice now and no one else in the family has tested positive.  I have no idea where or when I was exposed.
