On my walk this afternoon I started thinking of the things I’m grateful for. The top of the list? I’m not quarantined. I can get out and go for walks. I can go to the grocery store. I’m not stuck in my house. Sure, it feels like I’m stuck in here, but I can still go outside and run to the grocery store for milk, bananas, eggs, and spinach (the same four things we run to the store for every other day).
I am also thankful for The Happiness Lab, which had an entire episode on dealing with loneliness and social distancing. It gave me a few ideas to keep up with my friends outside of social media. I was supposed to get together with Kirsten this week, but COVID 19 means she won’t be travelling. We are going to have a video call wine date instead. Later this week I’m hanging out with Jess over Skype, because in person knitting dates probably aren’t going to happen for a while.
If you want to do a virtual knit night with me, or want someone to text with, I’m here. Just drop me a line and we will figure out a time that works for both of us. Being stuck at home together is better than being stuck at home alone.
Good things that happened this afternoon:
All in all, it was a good day. A surreal day, to be sure, but a good day all the same.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day.
