“There’s nothing like staying at home for real comfort” — Jane Austen
Staying at home, whenever possible, reduces your risk of contracting or spreading the novel coronavirus. What are you doing for daily inspiration? The beautiful tiger needlepoint canvas will take a lot of time, but the result will be a chic addition to a sofa stuffed with a zoo of companion animals. We think the fierceness in the tiger’s eyes is especially appropriate as we fight an invisible enemy. How about diving into a good book? Marie Benedict’s new novel about Lady Clementine’s fascinating life will connect you to the challenges of the 1940s. Because it is told in first person, the dialogue feels like a friend whispering in your ear.
Develop a daily routine. This will help make your days count. And it will give you and your family a sense of normalcy.
Read. Books have the power to take us to a different world. That sounds pretty good right now. Look for options to read online. Many publishers and authors and libraries have online services.
Try something new.
Find a new hobby. I love to needlepoint, so I am leaning on my old standby as a daily habit. Lately, I have started crocheting. While my in-person crochet class can’t meet, I can still find help on You Tube. What have you been longing to do?
