Got four books I have been eyeing for a while:
I hope everyone is okay!
I am feeling much better and think the 72 hours I was on forced isolation last weekend definitely helped with things.
My job is busier than ever. I’ve had to actually set up a home office instead of just plopping myself on the couch like I usually do during telework days. All praise the IT guys who helped me figure out what equipment was compatible with my work laptop.
Next up is replacing my grandmothers bedroom bench with an office chair. I ordered a cushion from purple to help with my stiffness and back for now, but I really need a chair to support my back. I’ve managed to narrow it down to three choices and will probably end up ordering one by next week.
I feel very lucky I don’t need groceries or any supplies. Since I know a lot of people are having issues finding food I promised myself to only go shopping for essentials every three weeks. I have a huge pantry so I made sure that was fully stocked.
I have been doing virtual workouts via my gym and it’s actually been fun and working. I have group chats going with my gym buddies so we let each other know what sessions were going to participate in. The only fly in the ointment is I had to buy equipment for use at home. And there seems to be some ridiculous price gouging going on with weights right now so I just bought a step package that included dumbbells and some yoga blocks and strap for a virtual yoga class that I joined that will start in the next week.
How are you all coping? What changes have you made to your daily routine or homes?
So I haven't been feeling the best since Wednesday. My doctor called me back in today since they wanted to see me since I have a shortness of breath and a cough. No fever (thankfully) but a slightly elevated temperature.
I can't get tested for COVID-19, but they know I have a virus (yeah me!).
So am now on orders to be in for the next 3 days. So going to get a lot of book reading done.
Take care all!
Currently am making a chicken and sausage paella in my instapot. Will take pictures and post tomorrow.
I hope everyone is doing well. I am just a bit tired these days, but that's because it's disheartening seeing the terrible responses to the COVID-19 virus in the U.S. I got no words Florida and Mississippi. I am thankful everyday that at least my state does not have the most incompetent people ever in charge. I feel so badly for everyone in New York and elsewhere where it looks like this virus is taking over.
Anyway, I have been going on longer and longer walks these days. They soothe me. I am also reading Julia Child's My Life in France.
