Ideas to keep a positive outlook amid the Covid-19
Too Much News!
Oliver and I have been consumed by all the latest news about the coronavirus. It's hard not to be. Every time you turn on the radio, the TV or even looking at your email brings some new update.
What are we doing to keep sane during these difficult times? Sometimes it's good just to urn off the computer, don't look at the latest email alerts and do something different.
Take a look at what we are doing...
Whether you take a hike or a stroll on the beach, or just a drive in the foothills. Go out and get some fresh air. A change of scenery is good for you.
With all of our recent rain the wildflowers are out in full bloom. There are poppies, and lupins lining the roadways and trails.
The air is fresh and clear, take a deep breath and enjoy.
Teach Yourself a New Trick
Earl gave me a new cookbook last year, American Sfolglino, by Evan Funke. Evan is a master at making all pasta shapes by hand. He tells you to throw the f**king machine away.
I have a great pasta machine, I've used it for years. Why would I want to throw it away?
I made some dough and rolled out some tagliatelle topped with fresh pesto and romano cheese. It was fabulous. I am now rethinking that machine. Could be a dust collector.
Guess what? Not only did I teach myself something new, I also distracted myself from the daily onslaught of news.
Grab A Shovel
We finished up a home remodel a few months ago, and while the inside is amazing, the yard leaves something to be desired. Weeds abound, especially with all the recent rain.
My daughter was visiting a few weeks ago, before the craziness began, and we got the shovel and started planting some natives, and a little jasmine for nighttime fragrance.
There is nothing like getting your hands in the dirt, and enjoying watching everything grow. I smile when I look out my window now. I have a long way to go, but I figure I have time now to work on it.
Share with us what you are doing to take care of yourself and stay positive during these difficult times.
