    I started up, and then paused Better Call Saul in the morning. Then after I've had a less productive day than I'd like to admit (I work from home too) but I'll make it up in the PM + I am getting to the end of a covid infection (it has been mild I'm fine) so I feel like I can use that excuse. In a moment I'm going to cook some farfalle bolognese with meat balls and then I'm gonna actually watch that BCS episode.

    How did you learn you had a Covid 19 infection for sure ? It appears reliable tests are as scarce as hen’s teeth in the US.
    (Given you’ve called yourself Greenhorn I’m guessing you’re in the US)

    Made french toast, did some homework, listened to a class lecture, had a therapy session on the phone, read some of the book "Stolen Innocence". I'll probably watch a movie, but i'm not sure which yet.

    I didn't set that and I just noticed it's there. Also no I'm not from the US.

    What I did during quarentine today was drink coffee, watched some random stuffs on Hulu, slept for awhile, chatted briefly with a friend over messenger, checked up on things online, filled out some paperwork, drank some afternoon coffee, worked out for about 20 min in the small gym we have access to here, and ate dinner and watched more tv. Nothing too much. I haven't really felt motivated to do much. I want to draw and stuff but I don't feel motivated. It sucks.

    Played a lot of games, board games and watched so much drag race that I ended up dreaming about it xD

    Also feeling a bit ill atm, so been resting and taking meds most of the time (no fever yet so we don't think it's COVID).

    Need to somehow find the motivation to catch up on some studies...

    currently reviewing my lectures for calculus on Youtube because my professor thinks 10 mins of going over material is substantial

    Calculus....I don't think 10 hours is enough for any calculus topic!

    (When brains for math were being handed out I think I was still asleep or hungover )

    Spent most of my day on Xbox Live, but also spent time listening to music and building up some of my playlists, watched TV, and texted one of my friends for a while.

    I'm doing a little better today although I still took a long ass nap in the afternoon. I've been more active at night, a bit of a night owl really. Just trying to make do, watch good shows on Hulu, watching Youtube, think I might be getting my inspiration back to draw (we'll see where that goes), and been just trying to make the best out of this crazy situation.

    Today I’ve started sewing face masks using new vacuum cleaner bags which, according to those in the know ,are more efficient at blocking viruses than most finely woven materials.
    Early today I harvested the last of my tomatoes and will make the last batch of tomato sauce for the year. I make a range different mixtures, four large bottles of tomato, garlic, sage, black pepper, four large bottle of tomato, onion, parsley, thyme, black pepper etc until I have enough to last me twelve months.
    Tonight will be the first time I work from home as a volunteer on the gay youth suicide etc help line. The office, apart from one supervisor, is now closed to meetings and more than two staff.
    Yesterday I had my first consultation with my GP via mobile ( do they still call them ‘cell phones’ in the US ?). Luckily I have a blood pressure test machine to give my GP readings. It keeps a record of all my readings which I replay to him.
    I’m also trying to organise as many of my regular bill payments to be deducted on line as I’m starting to get worried about Covid 19 taking a ride on any cash I handle. If I use my credit card in shops I now make sure it doesn’t actually make contact with the terminal. Life is getting complicated !

    Homework in the early part of the day, made lunch (grilled hot dog and potato chips), watched Raising Hope, tuned into a instagram book club meeting one of my favorite celebrities was doing, made chocolate chip cookies (made out of pancake flour so they actually taste more like sweeter mini chocolate chip pancakes), and HOPING to go on a walk when my sister is done with online school.

    Hope that’s not a sample of your diet in general.

    What I did today: I spent time on the computer mostly and listened to music and watching Youtubes. Also, I went outside for a brief bit and went for a short walk to escape confinement for a little bit. Nothing too exciting.

    No, it's not. I was doing something nice for my family and trying to keep busy.

    Good news. I have to confess though I was drooling over the idea of (mini) pancakes with chocolate chips.

    They are really easy to make if you want to try them. They ARE cookies but they taste more like pancakes to me. I got the idea from here:

    They sound lovely! And there is nothing wrong with being generous and enjoying something delicious.
