While New Zealand is officially on Day 5 of the 4 week lockdown, I have been at home now for seven days.
I walk most days, and to be honest I don't think I have ever seen as many people out walking in my neighbourhood before. We all give each other at least 2 metres space when walking past each other, call out hello or give each other a friendly wave. I walk between 3-5 km a day, depending on how much time I want away from my family, and am very lucky my view includes some sea views.
Generally I enjoy being home and pottering around, doing a bit of gardening, cooking or sewing, all the while knowing if I need to pop to the supermarket, craft store or mall I can. Suddenly knowing I can't is hard. Point in question. I've run out of cotton to match the shirt I'm sewing, so I can't make button holes. Do I make them anyway using another navy thread or if I was really brave something totally contrasting, or do I leave it unfinished until life returns to normal? At this point I'm leaving it and will start another project from the pattern and fabric stash.
Evenings are spent inside reading or hand sewing. I have completed and joined another row onto my ice cream soda quilt. last night the family discovered the Sherlock Holmes series on TVNZ on Demand. We all thoroughly enjoyed the first episode, so think this will be a family event each night till we finish series 4.
Stay Home, Stay Safe, Save Lives!
