BACK TO REALITY
Hey all, it’s, Gillian, your Northeast Bloomers Frose and More Go-To Gal checking up and checking in! It’s been a warm wet and muggy winter here in Connecticut and I personally cannot wait for SUMMER!! You know, those fantastically long days, holiday weekends, the smell of freshly cut grass and hydrangea wafting through the air. Ahhhhhhh.
It’s March. MARCH. Just the sound of the word alone is depressing. It lacks the pep and optimism of July, or the orderly and ambitious ring of October. Add to that, we have, of course, the Coronavirus, or as the cool kids call it, COVID-19. Frose Lovers, we are currently under siege with talk of school closings, spring break cancellations, hot spots, recessions, community spread… People are stocking toilet paper and making their own hand sanitizers. Answer me this friends, can March get any worse? It’s bleak indeed.
Well, Bloomers fans, I’ve got a plan, because I pride myself on being a solutions kind of girl (granted those solutions usually involve long naps, Netflix, and wine), but they are solutions none the less!! So in that spirit, I offer to all our faithful fans and customers, on this gray, March, Doomsday Tuesday, Bloomers Frose and More’s latest creation..
That’s right folks, it’s like a Hurricane Party, but it’s a Quarantine Party. I encourage you to break out the blender, invite your friends, neighbors and loved ones over to shelter in place, sip cocktails, and bemoan the state of the world. Maybe feature a drinking game where you take a sip every time someone says “cluster”, or “outbreak”, or “infectious disease”. Oh the possibilities…Our delicious Bloomers Quarantini is sure to be a much needed pick me up, a joy spreader, and a reason to celebrate. And after you’ve gathered and partied and toasted to better days ahead, may I suggest, my fellow Frose Lovers, that you bathe yourself in bleach, nap like there’s no tomorrow, and binge watch the new season of Jack Ryan. Cheers!!!!
