April distance brings May existence is the motto of the day huh? Another month of a stay-at-home order.
I've always enjoyed hanging around the house but I don't think I've had social distance forced on me since I was maybe 14 and I was grounded for a week from my friends.
I like working from home once in a while but I think I'm heading into week four? I forget now. It got old several days ago.
We are lucky though. We have electricity, heat, food, shelter and internet to keep us connected with friends, family and the outside world. I am lucky I am able to work from home. DH is not so lucky.
We have kept busy, thoroughly cleaning the house, scrubbing, dusting (OH SO MUCH DUSTING!), decluttering, packing up garbage, packing up donations.
I'm following Yoga With Adriene's April calendar available on Youtube. This month's theme is Nurture which is always needed but more so now. During a mind-numbing long conference call last week, I doodled, made a calendar of sorts to color in the days I do yoga this month.
DH has been cooking a lot. He loves to cook and the weather has been good enough to bring out the smoker. He's decided to walk in the evenings with me to stay off the couch. We've noticed people being quite friendly lately, waving from their cars, people outside their houses saying 'how are ya" and "take care". We've also enjoyed the sidewalk messages in the neighborhood.
I'm getting out for runs as well to help with attitude adjustments and clearing mental cobwebs. I believe I've put on more miles in the last few weeks running and walking than I have in the car.
Our local running store has shut down group runs of course but encouraging us to do our solo runs on the paths near the store and sign our names in chalk outside the store. I went for a beautiful run early this morning. I got a little lost on the paths but it was very reflective and peaceful.
I hope you and yours are doing well. Please leave a comment how you are taking care of yourself.
to you all!
