At 5 PM Saturday, March 21, Governor J.B. Pritzker's COVID-19 Executive Order No. 8, aka the Stay at Home order, took effect. Here's a daily-ish journal of how Reader staff, our friends, family—and our pets—are spending our time.

Day 62: May 21

What we’re listening to:

What we’re watching:

  • Phineas and Ferb on Disney+ (true comedy gold)

What we’re eating:

    • Savory pies, dumplings, creamy masala paneer, chai, and altogether too much food for one household, delivered from Chiya Chai

What we’re reading:

  • The Henna Wars by Adiba Jaigirdar, a brand-new YA novel about queer girls of color in Ireland attempting to out-henna each other for a school business competition. (What more could you ask for?) Available at Andersonville’s Women & Children First bookstore.
