The weather is beautiful now so we eat lunch and dinner outside every day.
We are clearing our closets, files, garage and storage areas. Our garbage cans are full.
I am cooking from scratch more and baking too.
We get together via ZOOM with family and friends.

I'm enjoying waking up early now and seeing sunlight seep through the windows into the rooms. I even downloaded an ambiance app of sorts to help, although I'm sure there are YouTube videos also available. I'm cleaning, decluttering, and organizing our things as well. Keeping in touch with friends as well as doing shared activities with the family help.

^^^ Mostly the same as HappyTrvlr above. Haven't done zoom yet but have called lots of folks.

Be outside as much as possible. I have a large deck and I try to eat lunch and/or dinner outside most days. I've completely 'spring cleaned' my den/office. Made a huge difference. Going to tackle my guest room starting tomorrow . . . most people have a junk drawer - my guest room has turned into my 'junk room' LOL. But I feel so good finishing the den that I'm jazzed about doing the guest room. That will take me at least a couple of days.

I also have a lot of old DVD movies so I ordered an external CD/DVD drive which arrived this morning. First thing I watched the old Importance of Being Earnest w/ Rupert Everett, Colin Firth, Judi Dench, Reece Witherspoon et al . . .

Been doing a lot more 'serious' cooking

This weekend/next week I'm going to start digitizing hundreds of old photo prints.

I've been 100% self isolating since early March. I order groceries on-line (only order every 14-16 days), drive up to a special parking spot and they load my trunk without me getting out of the car.

There really aren't enough hours in the day
