This morning I found this post to be quite helpful - Be Different to Everyone Else
I liked several things she mentions:
- Thinking long term (3 years? 5 years?) rather than when will we get out of lock down and back to normal
- Learning something new
- Doing things differently than you normally do
- Talking about things other than the virus, asking people questions about their dreams and reading inspiring books
I am a work in progress on all these fronts!
Finished pruning our bushes at the front entrance. I am going to make a note to do this every 3 months so they don't have to be cut back so drastically once a year. I think they will look better as a result and it will be easier for the gardening crew to mow under them.
Took a nice long walk as well as taking the dog for a walk.
Finished watching BBC's Wartime Kitchen & Garden which I thoroughly enjoyed.
Found several more books to download on my Kindle and read for a couple of hours.
