Have you bothered to do anything constructive with it?

I have almost completed 4 weeks of self isolation, apart from the odd walk I have not been out of the house and garden.
I was going to write a book, take up water colouring again, my first attempts were bad, but I have all the stuff, all I need is the inspiration, which so far hasn't arrived sadly.
I have prepared my garden for all the plants I have ordered online, apart from that...….nowt. Rolling Eyes

I do not mind to be honest, as am able to get stuck into many books I have and have not read yet

I think what you need to do is put on some fun music and dance Syl   Laughing

Hi Thor.
I do a dance almost every morning in the kitchen, OH twirls me round a few times whilst he sings an old Charles Aznavour song....it starts the day off on a happy note.

I'm not bored anyway, I may lack inspiration to do anything artistic ..I don't lack inspiration to do sod all though. Razz

You still must have spare time, something has to fill the time you would have spent socialising with friends and family.
I actually think that's the hardest bit, not seeing loved ones.

I've spent more time at the office, and rode my bike a lot.

And wasted time on forums.

I’m still working from home or going into the library when nobody else is there.

Reading as normal. Luckily I grabbed a ton of books the day before we closed the library. But I have been plowing through some Julia Child, Alison Roman and Melissa Clark cookbooks and Julia Child DVDs. Plus going through the NYT Cooking app and downloading recipes. I’ve got 900+ saved. We’re going to try an international family Zoom meeting tomorrow between France, 3 places in England, 3 here in AZ and 1 in California. Fingers crossed it works.

I did mean to do family filing, starting some family history, and cleaning out some closets and organizing my kitchen utensils drawers but, yeah that hasn’t happened. Yet.

I keep saying “let’s buy some paint and paint the house!”

It never happens.

I did buy a really nice toe ring online. I got well excited for its arrival.

Like obscenely excited, to the point of asking our poor, worn-out postman about it the other day. He held up well under what I can only imagine was a lot of internal pressure to complain loudly about the toe-ring-orderers of the world Smile

Well now we cant get to the shops it's exciting to order online and get stuff delivered......not that we have anywhere to go to wear it, but we will have, sooner or later.

I ordered garden lights that change colour, and i'm waiting for some annuals......may as well make the garden pretty, it looks like we will be spending a lot of time in it this summer.  flower

I love eddie's post, it's all about what people who are into meditation mean when they talk about turning off your "monkey brain" -- that part of your mind that must be constantly active, churning, thinking. It's not always good for us.

It's good advice, many people are not kind to themselves, they feel guilty or feel self indulgent just.....being.

If you cant be kind to yourself how can you be kind to others?

It's good advice, many people are not kind to themselves, they feel guilty or feel self indulgent just.....being.

If you cant be kind to yourself how can you be kind to others?

Yes! We beat ourselves up for not being constantly busy. Sometimes just resting and just “being” makes you more whole somehow.

Feed your soul. That’s what I say.

This is what Americans are doing with their extra time.  
Vive la difference....Brits are drinking afternoon tea, making love.........and moaning about the weather. Cool

Well, I'm just working.

I did have some iced tea earlier.

I have devoted the rest of my life to celibacy, so no need for making love.

Weather here is about to get nasty, but I'm not going to complain, unless I get hit by a tornado.

Tornadoes are exceptions to the complaining rule.

Celibacy? Why? Are women so horrendous? What’s your type? I may have a friend...

No Texan gets to complain about tornadoes unless they're actively inside one.

The hour long family international zoom worked out well although France wasn’t able to join us due to an internet issue and Ealing had a dodgy connection but otherwise it was great and my aunt from Austin joined in. Then had a separate hour call with junior junior in the UK. I love you

Then I ate some sushi, read part of a book on the Tudor queens and had a nap on fresh sheets. Now going to watch more Wire in the Blood before making a chicken stir fry. Overall a successful day.

I ordered garden lights that change colour, and i'm waiting for some annuals......may as well make the garden pretty, it looks like we will be spending a lot of time in it this summer.  flower

Ooh I love lights! Got so many, all over the house.



Yeah... One in every room...

Maybe in a previous life darling, I may have been a high-class whore.
But now, I just like to light up my room...then I can find my way back to me.

Sorry Eds, you lost me there...


You said you like lights and have them all over your house... I was just being silly by saying 'one in every room'... In the way you would expect to find a regular light in every room...

I believe you two were each thinking of a different style of light.

Tommy was thinking practical, Eddie was thinking red lights.

Does a red light still denote a lady of the night is on duty I wonder?

I was thinking of red lights that’s why I made a joke and yes Syl. I’m pretty sure they still use red lights...
