  2. Sangita says:

    Love the message from Ollie. Stop and “smell the roses”.

  3. Nancy says:

    As usual ootd is great. I like to wear colour since my hair is very white so glad to see you embrace it too.
    Always Love how you accessorize especially shoes. So impressed.

    great! inspirational way to look at things that are different in are everyday lives.

    love FriYAYS with you, oscar and ollie…..

    Beth, I’ve been following you long enough to know your one son & dil live with you but your other 2 sons do not. If they flew in recently or have been traveling then you all should not be getting together. I would love to have my son here but as a business executive living in LA he will not even drive the 2 hours to get here. Who knows who he has contact with. Isolate & stay in place. Consider that New Jersey family who had a family dinner & then lost 4 people.

    Oscar looks very dapper today in his scarf. I wore a bright pink blouse yesterday. It really pepped up the gray rainy day we were having. Getting out into the fresh air, however briefly, is good for all of us. In fact, the notice we received from my husband’s nephrologist said to let fresh air into the house whenever possible. Thanks for brightening our days.

    • Beth Djalali says:

      fresh air and sunshine are sooooo good for us right now. at this very moment, the birds are singing and the sun is shining with so many people in the neighborhood out and about.

  7. Susan says:

    Beth if your family is coming in and out of your home, this is not social distancing. They can carry the virus to you. We are currently not seeing our kids or our grandchildren. They want to keep us as safe as possible and we want to keep them safe. Even though I love reading your blog, if it takes more than yourself to produce and I am sure it does, you probably should step away and be safe! A walk in our great outdoors is what we have to look forward to in these trying times. Stay well!

  8. Sharon says:

    thank you for brightening these sad days.

    After all of this is over, all that will really matter is how we treated each other.
    Be kind!

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    I read a great article today about the importance of social connection during this time. Chronic loneliness has the same health impact as smoking 15-a-day. The author suggested replacing the term ‘social distancing’, using ‘physical distancing’ instead. That reframe can help us psychologically feel more emotionally connected with others.

    The author also encouraged ‘distant socializing’. Picking a recipe and cooking it with a friend via one of the video-conferencing tools was one suggestion – so your frittata could be a great one for that, since it is so flexible with the ingredients.

    I am relatively new to Pinterest (where I discovered you) and to bloggers. I am happy to see that you are doing so well since the passing of your dear soulmate. I love your blog, and I look forward to FWO. Since you have traveled so much (I have only traveled to 12 countries and two territories), it might be fun if you shared on FWO some of the recipes you gathered over the years in your travels and places where you and your husband lived, the fairly simple ones with easy to obtain ingredients. What fun! You are fun. My continued best wishes to you and to your family.

    I found you today in my Facebook feed. What an inspiration you are. After only a week of self quarantine I feel like a schlump. I have been social distancing from my bra! This is going to be difficult but it could be much worse. I turned 70 last fall and was diagnosed with a blood cancer the year before. Doing well. Thanks for reminding me how snazzy I can be. Love your style!!!
    Deeply sorry for the loss of your husband.
    Thanks for being there.

  12. Eve says:

    You are cheering me up considerably with your beautiful blog and lovely smile. Thank you.

  13. Jeannine says:

    Great recipe, Beth. I so look forward to your Friday’s With Oscar and Ollie. Yesterday was the first day I schlepped around in my sweats and was generally unwashed…and that won’t happen again! I made a delicious dinner with a beautifully set table, and it felt wrong to be in the same clothes I slept in. I’m happy your family is with you. Stay cheerful and healthy. 💐

  14. Suzanne M Smith says:

    I love the colors: beautiful shades. And the Fritata sounds yummy. We’re taking long walks in nature, and it is so true that it calms me down in the midst of all the insanity. I always have my phone with me, and I took some gorgeous photos of all the color out here in NC already. I’m taking different paths each day and recently discovered that at the end of a pretty trail, we have a cute little free library not far from us where I’m going to donate some books. It’s making me appreciate all kinds of simple pleasures. Hope everyone is re-connecting in good ways. Have a great weekend! I’m glad you’ll have family close by!

    • Laura Tiegs says:

      Thank you for adding happiness to each day. You are a ray of sunshine . I truly appreciate your post and the hard work you and your family put in to bring it to us. You are an inspiration and I love your fashions. I find inspiration from you daily.
