|We are supposed to stay within 1 kilometer of our homes. I roughly try to comply with that.|
|I try to take a picture on every walk or run to share with my running friends|
I've been to the bakery a few times
|I got breakfast and lunch at the bakery on one trip.|
|The local grocery set up a series of barricades where people can wait until it is there turn to get in the store.|
I've talked to friends from our balcony and over fences.
I'm not sure if Grace and Jack feel lucky to be stuck here, but I'm really glad they are. We have four hands for euchre. And just last week I received a mahjong set, so we can play three or four-handed mahjong.
|I used to play mahjong with my homeschool mom friends so it brings back lots of good memories. |
Earl apparently never played back in the day, but he is being a good sport and learning the game.
But realizing that the four of us were going to be inside, except for an hour per day of exercise, I immediately went on Amazon and ordered this 43-inch television. It isn't a show stopper, but gives us something to do on nights when we aren't playing cards or mahjong.
Our dinners have drifted later, usually starting around 8 p.m., so there isn't a lot of time afterward to watch TV.
|We have scavenged a few plants for our garden. |
We should have enhanced the soil first with alpaca dung from our friend with alpacas
I'm also teaching an online university class and am lucky enough that another one starts in May. I take two days off from being online for my class, but unfortunately they aren't the same days that I don't teach the Chinese children. The only day that I don't work at all is today, Wednesday. And it feels like a bit of a vacation.
I know I'm fortunate to still be able to work, so I won't complain about it.
A few restaurants are open these days for take out, so that is a nice break from someone cooking for 21 days straight. We had galettes last Friday -- those are savory crepes, with a delicious bottle of hard cider.
Maybe we'll try the Vietnamese restaurant next or the pizzeria so Grace and Jack can experience some local eateries.
We have also committed to getting a kitten.
That's our life in quarantine. We'll continue to take walks and look at beautiful scenery. Hope you're all being safe and stay healthy.
