So now what? What do we do?
Many are still working, only now from home. How is that working out? The refrigerator is way to close for my comfort.
Others are trying to recreate their normal at home. Gym workouts, projects, hobbies, etc. The only difficult part is to actually get started.
I have managed to clean four drawers and one cupboard and feel pretty good about that though I know it falls miles short of what I probably should have accomplished already.
I did find these puzzles (pictured upper left) that are self-proclaimed to be “Perhaps the World’s Most Challenging Puzzle,” because there is only one way all nine of those squares fit together. My intent was to complete each one (I have six) and then give them away. After about thirty minutes with one, the frustration was more than the isolation so now all are in the “give-away” box and I moved on to more enjoyable ventures (see bottom photo).
I thought my now defunct tree blankets might work for a hitting net for my whiffle golf balls, but alas they proved too thin (as you can see by the hole) so I moved on to burlap, which seems to be holding up nicely.
I do not mean to make light of the issue, nor of our need to isolate, but we all have had to create a new normal, and as the saying goes, “Necessity is the mother of invention.”
So first of all, how are you doing? Staying safe. Hopefully well. Then what are you doing? How are you managing the old responsibilities with the new reality? What new activities have your incorporated into your day?
I would love to hear from you. I have time.
