COVID-19 Days

typwriter-1024x511

My wife and I are homebodies, but even for folks like us who don’t mind being at home, it gets challenging. We do like to go out shopping, for lunch or dinner at a restaurant, we like to go out and photograph birds, and the landscape and more. We like going to the movies, and we like seeing relatives and friends. These days all that has come to a screeching halt.
As a photographer, it sucks. These days I do a lot of cat photography. We have two cats. As a writer, staying home is what you do. You sit in front of your computer and hopefully put something down that will lead to a new story. At times, it’s been not easy to concentrate on writing. I didn’t think it would be, but as the virus continues to run amok, it’s tougher and tougher.,
One of the things I do on most days is watch a movie. It’s relaxing, and I have always loved movies. If you are a regular reader, you have seen my post on some of the films I’ve watched while we quarantine.
We have a long road ahead of us with this virus, and anyone who thinks otherwise is foolish. A vaccine will help, but it will not end the spread unless it’s 100%, and everyone gets it. We need to try and stay positive and adjust to the life changes the virus has forced on us.

Please stay safe.

  1. I was at home for 3 straight months…I worked from home…it was easy but rough. I ate and ate…I started back to the office at the end of May and now I’ve just lost the weight I gained… I go into an empty IT department so I’m lucky in that respect as far as no contact…not so much for those laid off.

    I watched old TV shows and a lot of movies…

    1. Surprisingly, eating was not problem for me. In the beginning, I lost ten or eleven pounds. But in the past month I’ve added seven or eight pounds back which I don’t fully understand because my eating habits have not changed. I have kind of leveled off there. Glad you’re working in a safe environments.

  2. At first I thought this COVID catastrophe was surreal. I thought, hoped, that we would wake up one day and things would be markedly better. I did not dare to believe that it would miraculously disappear–that, I knew, was too unrealistic, but I hoped that it would be controlled. And now I find out that it could be controlled, that it could be better, that it is within our grasp and yet, we, collectively, will not do a simple, inexpensive thing. We won’t wear a mask. Sad.

    1. Yes. More and more doctors and experts are saying, we can control this thing if only people would wear masks and distance themselves. People are foolish.
