I have seen and heard many reports about the COVID-19 virus that is spreading over the world. I feel sorry for what has been happening and I have been praying for a cure for some time.
So far things are normal for me. I am continuing to write and think of new ideas as I stay at home to help do my part in fighting the virus.
I feel that keeping busy has helped me with the anxiety I have been feeling about the pandemic. I been keeping myself occupied by reading An Irish Country Family by Patrick Taylor. In addition to that, I have been keeping up with my blog posts, edited my book, and producing my YouTube videos.
In my spare time, I have been watching a variety of shows on Netflix. I have been watching a lot of cartoons from Looney Tunes to Garfield.
I have been doing my regular chores, such as laundry, dishes, and yardwork.
Whenever I get anxious about the virus, I find that talking with friends on social media helps to alleviate it. My anxiety is more heighten at nighttime for some reason. To help with this, I play rainstorm sounds on my Alexa device, and I run my essential oil diffuser. I love the scent of lavender; it helps me get a good night’s sleep.
If we all pull together and do our parts, hopefully we will be successful in this fight against this virus.
What have you been doing to keep yourselves busy while we are told to stay home?

I like to work, with music on, preferably classical, jazs or pop classics. I have a new blog and accompanying apps at Christian Climate Change Politics – poetspirit1.link/climatechange. Enjoy your day!
I like your comment about doing your part by staying home. That is what we are doing, and I think you summed it up nicely. 😎
