  1. 13. Bake chocolate chip cookies!

  2. Congratulations on your 1000th post!! Wow! We’re hanging in there, thanks. Hubby’s off at work and homeschooling goes on. Been spending a lot of time listening to Celtic Woman – it’s soothing. And have been checking in with neighbors, letting them know if they need anything to reach out. I had an old friend send a note, checking in. I’ll have to write back!

    Hubby sent me a funny meme with a photo of a pair of earrings that are little rolls of TP made from little white beads. On the meme it says: Commemorative Jewelry to Always Remember 2020. Found a photo of the earrings (the gal who makes them is sold out!) https://images.app.goo.gl/P7ySHT3bjp2Yr6qP6

    • Oh I’m glad to hear your hubby is off work, that must make you feel a little better! Did they shut down the ferry run?
      Anything you can do to comfort yourself is a good thing, I think ~ I’ve been going out for walks and enjoying podcasts in the back yard. Yesterday I took a conference call in the sunshine … ahh!!

      Those TP earrings .. ha ha ha and no I don’t want any! Funny

      Take care! MJ

      • Oops! I wasn’t clear about my husband. He works seven days on, followed by seven days off. And when I was commenting, he was in the midst of his week off. As I write, he’s back at work, but the ferry system has reduced the number of boats running on certain runs because of reduced ridership right now. His boat has been tied up, sitting on stand-by, but they’ll make the run tomorrow. Fortunately, being down in the engine room, he doesn’t mingle with the public.

      • got it – thanks for the clarification! Hope he stays safe and well regardless 🙂 MJ

  3. Great post! Good time to do some of the “little” things that we often put off for lack of time.

    • for sure – great time to do some little jobs — what works for me is to set a kitchen timer for 15 mins and go for it — i.e. clean out the pen/junk drawer, organize the plastic-ware (which is always a jumbled mess!), sort through socks. Even doing 1 or 2 of those daily adds up 🙂 Thanks for chiming in, Brian! MJ

  4. This is a good list! I’m definitely relying on the simple things to help keep my sanity. Exercise, meditation, reading, prayer. Sometimes it just takes a moment to do a simple thing that can steer you back in the right direction. Hope you’re feeling better this week!

    • thank you, I’m back to 100% and trying to find things to do and be thankful for. SAFE at home not STUCK at home 🙂 MJ
