All right I’m just going to come out an admit it.
I’m living in pajamas right now.
Like BIG TIME!
Sheltering at home may be necessary but it’s screwing with my head.
I can barely tell what day it is.
All the weekdays blend into one and each one is pretty similar to the one before it.
I’ve developed some habits that are helping relieve the boredom.
After all, I think boredom is just indicative of an inactive mind.
Plenty to do to stay engaged and alert.
My favorite thing now is to go for a walk.
It gets my heart pumping and exposes me to sunlight and cool breezes.
What’s not to love about a hike?
And if you call a friend then you have someone to chat with and you can catch up on the latest news while exercising your body.
I also enjoy playing the piano.
Funny because I left it alone for 20 years, but I can honestly say now that I’m appreciative of my parents pushing me to learn when I was a very reluctant student all those years ago.
Craft projects come in a close third along with costuming.
For me, crafting means breaking out my sewing machine and making quilts while costuming means going online and finding key pieces for my wardrobe of costumes.
My favorite place to source unique one-of-a-kind pieces and custom work is etsy.
And here are some craft projects that have been tempting me:
In addition, I’ve been enjoying growing plants from seeds indoors to transplant into the garden.
This sunflower kit really appeals to me (so much so I gave it as a gift to someone special):
But also you can grow herbs for cooking, to be transplanted outdoor or kept on your window sill:
Finally, my final suggestion is to learn a new language.
Who doesn’t need to learn Spanish, or French?
Even just become capable of basic conversation and comprehension.
If you hear me say I’m bored, remind me that there is a world of entertainment out there and I’ve got no excuse to be bored.
