We spent the last six days at home, hiding out from the coronavirus.
A definite upside to social distancing is regaining a sense that we have all the time in the world for whatever we want to do here at the house. No appointments, get togethers, volunteer activities, gym classes, or commitments, just time here at the house. I think I recognize that I once had a similar feeling of owning my own time during my early childhood summers, and I am glad to have regained it a bit, even though it is such a tough time for people across our world.
This sketch shows my husband working to set up a solar panel, a project he has been meaning to do for several years. I reorganized my art supplies, cleaned closets, and played with my hula hoop. And who knows, maybe I will even weed that bed of nasturtiums you see in the background.
