Thanks to Mary and Susan for sharing their thoughts with us, we loved them, so we wanted to share them with you too!
Mary F suggests:
Make sure to spend as much time as possible, interacting with your family, if you have one. Play games, tech, & others, teach each other, cook other domestic shores. Watch movies, talk about them. Write letters, cards, etc to others. Share yourself with each other!
Susan P from Queensland, Australia has the following to say:
We have no problem keeping ourselves occupied. We are retired. Usually we are not home at this time of the year as we trip around in the caravan but that is not allowed now. I am doing the spring cleaning I did not do last year because of the drought. We garden a lot, always have, and grow our own vegetables and fruit, only have a suburban block, read an awful lot, walk long distances (still allowed out to exercise) do a lot of craft, crocheting and weaving, and husband is always in his shed working on a project. We also play cards (usually with friends but that is no longer on the books so it is just us) I love to cook so am doing a lot of that although that is nothing new, keep in touch with scattered family via FaceTime and phone.
We are thinking of you all over there. Stay safe.
