This is a terrible time without question- we are all feeling the pain. But I must say it is not difficult for me to have to Shelter-In-Place or whatever you want to call it, this is the easy part for me. I love traveling and doing things but I can always find things to do at home. During this period where we are urged to stay at home to help flatten the curve here is how I have kept myself busy so far.
1- Working. Ten days ago the library closed all services for at least until April 7th. We have been given work to do at home. I work mainly in circulation/ cargo so there isn’t much that I can ‘take home” to do- but we have been given webinar’s online to watch and give summary’s on. Also I run a non-fiction book club so reading my upcoming book-books for that count, also I have volunteered to do a two part program on the history of our Presidents- that I will give before the election in the fall- working on that counts. So I have been busy with work from home.
2- Reading- Not only the book club books but also other books just for pleasure. I would have to live at least five lifetimes to read all the books I own. The book club book I am currently reading- “A Woman Of Valor- Clara Barton and The Civil War.” by Stephen Oates The book I am reading for pleasure the book that inspired the play Hamilton- Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow.
3- Listening to Music. Again like the books I have all kinds of music to listen to and have been doing so.
4- Watching television. I haven’t been binge watching any shows the past couple weeks but have been watching a lot of news. Of course the news is always a bummer to watch but even more so the past month plus. I also watch more than enough of The Andy Griffith Show – even though I’ve seen every episode a dozen times over the years. It’s nice to go to Mayberry for a little time each day.
5- Working on this blog.
6- Spending time with Mrs. Postcard. She is still going off to work on her regular schedule but just had a three day weekend. So far we haven’t been annoying one another. I’ve also been in daily contact with friends and call my mother a couple times a day.
7- One thing I need to do- is get some exercise. Walking down to get the mail every day isn’t much exercise. Got to get out and move a little!
