From Sparkle Abbey's Pampered Pets Mystery Series
Well, I don’t know about you, but I’ve been in my feels the past couple of months. Due to our “new normal for now,” it’s been very different here in our oceanside town. Normally, we’re ramping up for a crash of tourists, but it’s been very quiet. With the beaches closed surfers are MIA, sun worshipers are lounging in their backyards, and beachcombers have turned their attention to digging for lost treasure in their garages. Laguna has felt like a ghost town. Even crime has taken a nosedive. I guess that’s good news, right?
With all this extra time on my hands I’ve been spending my time just like the rest of you—baking bread and drinking wine. I won’t be hailed as a baking guru anytime soon, but I could hold a masterclass for drinking wine! I’ve discovered a number of lovely clean wines (all-natural and additive-free) during lockdown that I’m super excited to share with my friends in person once our lockdown is over.
How about you? Have you discovered any hidden talents lately?
