What are you most grateful for during this covid-19 crisis?
That my family and friends have all remained healthy and virus-free. I don’t know anyone who has had the virus.
What have you missed most during the full or partial lock-down?
Teaching my Anquestors genealogy group and my monthly scones get-together with my friend.
Has your hobby sustained you during this time?
Genealogy and writing my blog has more than kept me busy at home.
What changes have you seen in your life over May 2020?
Before the virus, most of my store visits were for groceries. We now order all our food online, either for contactless delivery or contactless pickup from the supermarkets. I’ve come to like it and might never go in another grocery store again!
Have you been exercising more or less?
I love to walk and that hasn’t been impacted at all by the lockdown. I walk most days right at dawn and go 4.5 miles.
Has the refrigerator been your friend or foe?
It’s been a friend. My one guilty pleasure is Blue Bell ice cream, but walking takes care of my bowl a day (It’s 103 degrees here today, so definitely ice cream weather) and we don’t keep junk food in the house.
Have you been participating in virtual gatherings with friends or family?
No, but I regularly watch webinars and attend my local genealogy society meetings online.
Have you taken up new hobbies during the lockdowns?
Definitely not! I still don’t have time to do any quilting.
Are you cooking or gardening more?
Neither. We rarely eat out anyway and our desert yard limits the gardening.
Have you shopped more or less? Online or offline?
We had been ordering more and more items online before COVID-19, doing probably 80% of our shopping online. Now, we are pretty much at 100% online shopping, other than an odd item here or there like a prescription.
Thank you Pauleen and Randy for this week’s challenge. 🙂
