Quarantine 101

I'm surprised when I take stock, and think back on the 101 days I've been quarantined at home (bar a few essential food shopping outings), to realize just how much I'm enjoying my alone time! I'm beginning to think I'm the archetypal Introvert, who's been getting lost in everyday life up until now. This period of isolation has been refreshing and invigorating for me - I'm seeing it as my time to recharge, and it seems it will never be long enough! I'm almost afraid for when it will be over - maybe I'll need to remain a contented hermit?

Most, if not all, the activities I enjoy are solitary - reading, writing, photography, gardening, puzzles, crocheting, watching movies, learning. Heck, I've even learned to 'multi-task' on some of them! I crochet while I participate in webinars, online courses, and watching movies. I drink coffee while I read (😄), I weed the cove while I'm 'swimming,' I write (in my head) while I'm gardening or exercising, and I drink wine while I'm eating dinner ... Pretty cool that I can combine my loves.

I go to bed at night, looking forward to what I can do the next day. I look forward to waking up and doing all the things I love. It feels exciting and thrilling to me. I can't think of anything better!
