Here are a few things that we have been upto, all during this 21-day lockdown. And yes, there’s more. We work from home diligently every morning from 10 A.M. to about 6 P.M, some times a little more. We also take a lot of reading breaks. And yes, I haven’t watched so much TV in over a decade, as I am watching now. Including the news. Oh! Blimey! Evenings, mostly weekend evenings, are reserved as the family entertainment time- watching a flick or two, or dumb chardes and scrabble if we please. Watched A Star is Born again with the DH and Aladdin with the girls. Both really lovely!
I’ve already baked two kinds of healthy cakes – banana and carrot; both with copious amounts of walnuts, and no refined flour- just healthy oats flour. The younger poppet rustles up a dish or two ever other day. I’m glad I’ve started donning my chef’s hat again. I’d taken a long sabbatical with work getting busier.
Friends and Furry Children
The Zoom calls with friends and family during this lockdown is doing us wonders. It’s been great to connect with some friends I had lost touch with, owing to the busyness of life. It’s a pleasure speaking to all of them, and to know that they are keeping their heads held high.
Another heartwarming sight is to see friends taking time to savour the sunset. I do so too, every single day. Sunrises have taken a backseat for me. I’ve always been an early riser, but this lockdown has given me the liberty to loll in bed till about 7 A.M.
I’m loving the cuddles with my furry girls, Laila and Mishka. I guess they are thrilled to have all of us at home. I love taking them for their short evening walks (amidst the lockdown), and gathering the juicy mulberries that dot the outdoors. The purple Jacarandas are blooming again and their fragrances rises to mingle with the wispy breeze.
I’m extremely grateful to be bestowed with this privileged life amidst the Corona crisis, while multiple health workers and other people toil day and night to heal us and help overcome this grave pandemic.
Take good care everyone. You are in my prayers and thoughts.
Sending you all healing light and immense love. <3 <3
