Here are a few things that I stumbled upon during the lock-down and a few old favorites that I go back to from time to time.
This work from home has been pretty good for me. Honestly I was feeling a bit rough to be alone in my room all the time. No matter what I did to divert my focus, be it a walk or baking trials etc was always feeling lonely. Since work from home was issued I got a chance to be with my family. My sister has a 4 year old and a 6 month old at home. My breaks were involved with hugs and kisses from little ones or her doggy pushing herself on me for belly rubs. Lunch breaks were no more sad. No matter how busy we all were, we will have our meals together. By 8pm kids will be asleep and we will have time for ourselves watching Netflix or news together or doing anything fun. Last weekend we celebrated my niece’s 4th birthday at home. It was so much fun. We baked her cake at home. Decorated till 1am and in the morning, family from India joined us for celebration through video calls. We tried doing group video calls and still ended up with 6 devices. There were so many people. It was a new and fun experience. This little change made me feel so good. Being quarantined with our family or friends or even a person to talk is a blessing.
Here are some happy pictures of happy quarantine.
