SOLSC Day 18
As Joni Mitchell sang,”
Why is it that when something is taken away from you you want it all the more even if it is something you don’t need or have to do? Government guidelines tell us to stay home and avoid contact with others. So why do I want to go somewhere even though I don’t need a thing?
I could sit and grumble and feel sorry for myself, but I thought I would list the things I can do here at home. Some things I enjoy doing and some just need to be done. Here are 10 possibilities in no special order of importance or priority.
- Read – I certainly don’t suffer from having a lack of books I want to read.
- Play with the cats – They need their exercise or they tear the house apart. I know this from experience.
- Blog…post…comment. Hey, it’s March so this is a given.
- Laundry – Even though there are only two of us we tend to go through the clothes.
- Cook – This is a good time to try new recipes. We have a well stocked freezer and pantry. I also have tons of cookbooks, recipes cut from newspapers and magazines, plus recipes I found on line that I printed off.
- Bake – I like my sweets and there is no getting around that. Of course, I shouldn’t be eating too many sweets.
- Organize – Now that it is a bit warmer it is a good time to go up to the attic and go through things. The garage could also use a cleaning out as well.
- Work on a project – I enjoy working with plastic canvas so this would be a good time to make something. I have a year and a half until Kathy’s guild hold their next quilt show and I do like to donate something to their quitique.
- Yard work – This is the perfect time to get out and pick up the branches that have fallen off the trees during the winter. This also gets me out of the house so that I don’t feel so confined.
- Read – Did I mention that I have a stack of books sitting beside my chair, as well as other places in the house, that are begging to be read? Let’s not forget those I have stored on my Kindle.
So, I have plenty to keep me busy during this time of isolation I miss the choice of not going somewhere just because I want to. Oh well, I’ll survive. Oh, wait. I think I hear a book calling to me.
