Doodlers in dangerous times

How are you doing? It has been a month since my last post here.

I am alive, still working from the home office. Grateful that I can do this, thanks to modern technology.

Planning ahead, I registered for a fall class that will be delivered online by my local college. It’s not the same as in-class learning, debating the instructors, comparing experiences and challenges with classmates, and making new friends. At least I won’t have to take public transportation to get there and back!

I am still keeping social distance but glad to have small social bubbles. I swear I have spent more time on the phones chatting with family and friends in the past three months than I have in the past year! It’s important to maintain social contacts however possible without endangering the herd.

Once again, I satisfied requests from my inner child while shopping for groceries a couple of weeks ago. These fine tip, no bleed Sharpie markers were a good addition to the COVID-doodling tools.

I have been practicing basic calligraphy, writing myself positive messages and affirmations.

One Day at a Time

I enjoy sharing these colourful messages with family and friends.

I try to eat well and move my body, especially for early morning walks. I take photos of things that amuse, comfort or inspire me.

Keep on keeping on

Miss Kitty is holding on, waiting for an appointment with a veterinarian closer to home. She had to adjust to me moving sh*t around again, due to recent painting activities on our apartment balconies. She’s not fond of change.

Now that the workmen are done, I can relocate things to enjoy my balcony for brief outdoor excursions and fresh air.

I hope you are doing well, enjoying simple things, harmless hobbies, taking care of yourselves and each other.

Have a lovely day

Thanks for dropping by.

    I like your Doodlers in dangerous times. Keeping busy seems to be a problem for some. I’m busier than ever, and yet Im not sure what I’m doing. Take care.

      Thank you for stopping by, Susan. I keep myself busy by making lists of things to do around the home and online. That, occasional journal entries and free-time dooding sure help pass the lonesome hours.
