1. More walks. Since the parks are closed, we have been walking around (and around) our neighborhood. One day, we logged over five miles.
2. More friendliness. We've noticed on our amblings around the area that more people are outside, and they are friendlier. They say, "Hi!" They smile. They wave.
3. More knitting. I've finished the blanket for a soon to arrive baby girl. (Can you imagine telling your child, "Yes, you were born in the middle of a pandemic"?)
4. More garden. Since everything has stopped in the real estate area, I decided to assume that we won't be moving in the next two months; so I planted my garden. Cauliflower. Broccoli. Celery. Lettuce. Tomatoes. Basil. It's a start.
5. More kindness. I have a tendency to always be the one to offer help. But this week, we were blessed by two young women in our church. One went to the store and got some almond milk. And a second one drove over and dropped that wonderful gift on my porch. It was a good opportunity for me to work on accepting the blessing.
And here is a bit of humor that I documented on one of our walks.
Geese doing their part for social distancing
But evidently they haven't been properly training their goslings.
