Days 1-7 of Coronavirus Staycation

March 26th, 2020

I shut down my business as we had no business. Being in the event industry we were one of the first groups of industry to shut down. No one wants to get together and then get sick because of it. Makes a good time a bad time really fast.

Initially I started a diary of all the things I was going to accomplish while at home. This way I could recount how productive I was. I had a huge list of to-do items that have been hanging around my head for months. In my head the list was giant. Well it seems that they either didn’t take as long as I thought they would or there really weren’t that many because after 7 days I was out of chores.

Which brings me to here – writing a blog – the thing people do when they don’t have anything else to do.

Closets and drawers organized and cleaned out.

Basement and garage ditto

Gardens mulched

These were the obvious things and my friends were sending me photos of their under the kitchen sink organized areas. Ahh is this is what we have come to – after only 2 days?

I dyed my hair – successfully – but then I am not going out so who’s to know.
I don’t think hair dressing will be my next career choice.

I gave my dog Justin a hair cut – turns out grooming a dog is way harder than it looks. He looks like I trimmed him with a weed-wacker. Then again he’s a dog and no one is coming here to visit so who’s to know.

I don’t think dog groomer will be my next career choice.

Let’s get caught up.

It’s been so long…
I moved to a real farm – no really, we have goats and a sheep and a rooster and hens.

Where the heck have I been?

Where the heck have I been? Not dead! I have been around and very busy – I guess too busy to write but I am finding the time so I’m going to give this another shot. So get your boots on cause we are going for a ride.

Surfs up! Remember I am just a passer-by taking the photo – I don’t dress the taxidermy squirrel.
