    Name something good that happened to you today - lock down edition

    Some days are easier than others during this lock down and with all we hear on the news and missing our loved ones and our normal routines, it can be hard to find a positive sometimes.

    But each day has something good in it, however small so what has cheered you up today? Maybe you discovered a new TV show, video called a friend etc. Can be anything, big or small

    Take care everyone

    For me, today it would be that I found some candles I forgot I had while tidying up and unboxing stuff from moving recently

    I'm in essential services so I'm still working. That said, several business locations in my area have temporarily shut down and the staff redistributed resulting in flex schedules. So I'm off until next week (paid thankfully) and even with reduced hours, I'll be compensated.

    So.... Cut the lawn, weeded, trimmed etc. and prepped our raised garden bed for planting. We usually grow some veggies and herbs Also got to do some general maintenance on our SUV and give her a good bath. Otherwise, inside with the cat curled up in my lap chillin', learning some new songs (all my gigs are toast until further notice... might as well take the time to re-vamp my show ). My wife is working on her crafts. What else can you do really?

    Heck, the govt. said to not even shop for the next two weeks so we're stocked

    Oh yeah... Even with the seriousness of the situation, a good laugh is always welcome. Been watching funny videos and shows. Have you checked out some of the Corona Song Parodies that have come out? Some of them are brilliant! Especially this guy.....

    My Corona - (parody of "My Sharona")

    Positive thoughts and Hello? and Thank You

    Re: Name something good that happened to you today - lock down edition

    This morning I let my 5 year old mostly make our scrambled eggs by herself (with me supervising) and she was SO thrilled about it. She couldn't stop going on and on about how she had made the breakfast. She's been having a tough time, too, with my husband and I so busy trying to work from home, and it was just a really lovely moment.

    Some other things that have happened in the past few days:

    - I found out I got the highest grade in one of my law school classes on our midterm that we took before the virus. I got a 99/100 and my professor said it was superb. I haven't felt like much of a winner trying to juggle work, school, and taking care of my daughter so it was such a boost to my mood and confidence! It doesn't even matter because the school switched to pass/fail for this semester, but I felt very proud.

    - I found The Nanny available to watch online! It was one of my all time favorite shows back in the 90s. I'm guessing only Americans will know this show, but it's been such a joy to watch again.

    OMG Fran Drescher Probably one of the few that I cannot watch due to her laugh. LOL. But I do agree that itís a great feeling when you find a show that reminds you of a really happy time in life - I was that way with Gilmore Girls haha.

    Also - AMAZING job on your midterm!!!! Thatís so awesome!!! You should feel super proud!

    I got a commission booked in for the next week, and Iíve spent the day drawing and playing animal crossing after a lovely lazy morning in bed.

    My pet rat (Dylan) has lost almost all of his mobility in his back legs, and has recently been very depressed/sedentary with his new limitations. However, today he was moving around a lot more, socialising with the other rats, and readjusting to moving around despite his deterioration. He seemed happier, so I was happier.

    Thank you!

    And yes, Fran Drescher is definitely someone you either love or cannot handle! I've always been a big re-watcher for the nostalgia and this one is just twice as good since it's been so so long. I'm also going to start another re-watch of Lost and maybe The West Wing.

    Went for a walk in some woods near my house and saw lots of snowdrops and bluebells had come out and carpeted large swathes of the ground. There were a variety of birds tweeting and I even saw a wild deer sprinting off in the distance. I just love how nature continues to do its thing whatever mankind's woes are. The poet Wordsworth knew a thing or two in that regard.

    Sounds beautiful, you should write some poetry of your own

    *I re-learned how to do a crochet square (haven't done this for over 30 years) and may make a blanket.

    *Watched our daily state of the nation speech from our PM and the Director General of Health report that our covid cases are the lowest they've been in 2 weeks, although more testing has been done. This is very encouraging for us here in NZ

    *Made some delicious salmon cakes for dinner
