During this unprecedented time, we must stay close to home to be safe.What does this look like to you?
For me, it’s been a time to:
Spend time with my immediate family. My Hubby and my 2 daughters.
Talking, hiking, baking together.Taking walks out in nature.
I do my exercise routine, which includes a walk outside around the neighborhood. It’s good to be out, seeing the trees and sky.
Bird Watching: I enjoy bird watching. I have a bird feeder and a suet holder. We have a few different birds that show up at our feeder: House Sparrows, Mourning Doves, a male and female Cardinal. I enjoy seeing the birds.
Connecting with people on the phone or online. We’ve touched base with family and friends.
Gardening: I bought some seeds and started some plants inside. I’ve felt grounded seeing flowers and greenery about. Our Daffodils bloomed and I noticed tulips coming up.
Creativity: I’ve had time to get more work done on my book project. I’m working through creating the illustrations.
So, though it’s a tough time, We’re managing.
My mom used to say “When the Going gets tough, The Tough get going.”
Take care,Lisa G.

Darla Dixon organized a group of artists who will create no-charge compassionate portraits for the families who have lost a loved one in Operation Iraqi Freedom/Operation Enduring Freedom.
