It has been nice to give myself time to slow down and be with my family. And there is an outdoor shower here, which I love.
Our lifestyles have shifted a lot, is there anything you’ll keep doing on the other side of all this?
Hopefully continue exercising
Tell me about your evening routine! and your morning one too!
I wake up, brush my teeth, change out of PJs into sweat suit, and let my dog outside. While he’s out there I make his breakfast and mine.
If it’s nice outside we lay out a blanket in the back yard and work and hang out there.
In the evenings I’ve been doing a workout class at 5, whoever is around joins, sometimes it’s just me. Then I shower, put on something cozy and have a glass of wine. We take turns building a fire and all eat dinner together. Then watch a movie or TV or work on a puzzle.
What’s one way big or small that you’ve been helping others?
Because we can't visit my grandma, we have been making and sending her postcards so she gets something nice in the mail. I’m also working on some little care packages to send to friends that I miss.

My friend cami who is here quarantined with me and my family :)

travel and hug and kiss and go to restaurants

Im really grateful that I’m able to quarantine in a place where I am comfortable, can go outside, and be with people I love
