There isn't a lot going on for me right now. Actually, there isn't a lot going on for a lot of people as we collectively try and stay healthy during the coronavirus pandemic. The trips I had planned, the restaurants I enjoy, the movie theaters I visit -- everything is on hold.
There have been some good things that have sprung up out of staying at home. I've discovered the joys of grocery delivery. I marvel at how much less money I spend when I don't go into the store. Now that the panic buying has subsided and paper products are beginning to reappear, getting everything on my shopping list has become more dependable.
I've been retired for four years now, so I've had a little practice keeping myself entertained at home. But while we wait out the virus I am challenged to find new ways of being with myself and others. Does the cat miss going outside? The window she and I enjoy looks out over my green space, but another window looks inward where there is also ample space to explore.
