Where are you writing this?
I’m writing this sitting in my backyard, something I rarely got to do pre-quarantine

What are you reading?
I’m re-reading Dry by Augusten Burroughs. He’s just a great writer and I love memoirs…I will read anyone’s. I just finished reading Unorthodox after seeing the Netflix show.

What are you watching?
I’m watching Shtisel which is an Israeli show about an Ultra-Orthodox community in Jerusalem. And Normal People which is an Irish show based on the book by Sally Rooney about a modern love story. Also, My Brilliant Friend which is Italian and has an incredible unknown cast. All are really really good shows.

What are you eating/cooking/baking?
I am cooking on steroids. Meaning, if I make tacos, I make the tortillas too, if I make Indian food, I make the naan from scratch. Pizza Dough from scratch etc etc!

Funny you asked, I just saw that Apple has a virtual tour of L’Hermitage and have been meaning to take it.
