What I’ve Been Doing During the Quarantine

With the quarantine, it’s easy for the days to run together. I decided to chronicle my last three days, just to remind myself I have actually done some things this week. Here is my list which is certainly not conclusive and is in no particular order. You will see that since my housekeeper is not working that I have had the chance to appreciate just exactly how much she does on her weekly visits.

Okay, now I am falling asleep writing this. I think I’ll close. I still have the last three things to complete on my Wednesday list.

I’ll say good night. Hope you are doing what you can so the days don’t blur into themselves. I’m doing my best but it’s easy to forget what day it is.

I’ll check back in again tomorrow.
