Crazy Covid Days Are Full of Adapting and Looking Back
What are we eating today?
I don’t know, what’s in the fridge?
I’m sitting here in my living room cum office, bolstered against the heat and humidity with the constant thrum of the lifesaving electric fan lightly blowing into my ear. The past couple of months has been a whirlwind of activity then crashing into a lot of sheltering at home and reflection has been overwhelming, at least for me.
It has been a drastic change from weeks of moving, traveling, and going out to becoming weeks of staying at home, a lot of self and home improvement and ducking and dodging human interaction during essential supply runs. Days are now a blur of cooking, eating, working, washing and repeating; trying to pass the time in some productive way while beating the heat.
Everyday I go online to find out what is happening locally and abroad. While I have gotten better at dealing with less than ideal outlook, it’s a particular one hell of a edge of my seat limbo reading about government’s stance going back and forth on coronavirus.
I’m not posting right here and now to ascribe blame or discuss the merits of what’s right or wrong with what’s happening but more of a coming to terms with the situation at hand and trying to make the best of the situation I find myself in.
Now that I’m spending a lot of time at home I’ve able watch my daily routine and analyze things down to the minute details, and hopefully able to streamline things:
- Cooking both new and old food recipes
- Baking…. a lot of baking
- Reorganizing the home to better fit the new norms
- Container planting, a lot of container planting
- Getting back in touch with leather but haven’t yet
- Writing posts again….. (dun dun dun)
It’s crazy out there and it’s starting to get crazy in here (pointing at my temple).
I can only imagine that what the new normal is and how human behavior, as we know it has now and forever will have changed. While past events have gradually changed communities, cities, countries the current nearly global effort to stay at home will likely have the same effect on the human psyche.
Depending on where you live, your mileage may vary depending on the amount of time you spend in your local isolation stipulation but rest assured that things will never be exactly the same again. Maybe you’ve noticed behavioral changes yourself:
- General lethargy
- Eating habits
- Sleeping habits
- So on and so forth…
Or maybe it’s just me…. Anyways, that’s where I’m at and I suppose more of things to come.
