Is the question that I ask myself each day on waking now that all the normal routine and usual commitments have been removed from our everyday lives.
I have devised a daily schedule to keep myself both physically and mentally active but it is same each day with not much variation hence each day seems like the one before the one before.
Hubs has given himself a COVID-19 challenge. A job which he contemplated doing when he first retired 16 years ago and for various reasons it was shelved and never really got started so now that we are housebound like everyone else it is an ideal time to finally tackle the job and get it completed.
A hobby of hubs has been photography from when he was a teenager and went most places with his camera so you can imagine how many thousands of photos were taken over the years. Thankfully we now have digital cameras so this problem of storage no longer exists. The above is the bulk of them but there are boxes and boxes of slides stored in the garage and also a few photo albums still lurking in the bottom of a couple of cupboards.
I think that he will be kept busy sorting, boxing and labelling for sometime to come. Fortunately we do have a smaller dining table that we can use especially now that no one is joining us for meals. Once he has reached that goal the next step is to pick out the best of them to scan and store on the computer. Then he can come up for air and declare the job finished.
Whilst all this sorting has been taking place my time has been spent in the sewing room whipping up skirts for 14 year old girls. More on that later.
We really did feel isolated here this morning - not only are we in lock down but there was no internet access, tv or landline due to an Optus tower "being down" in our area. The service was back up and running some 4 hours later. It was very frustrating for us but must have been extremely annoying for others trying to run a business, work from home or access schooling. I am just thankful that the power did not go out in sympathy.
Back soon and in the meantime
