Finding some quiet time.
My husband is working from home in my sewing room and there are so many on-line meetings, conference calls and phone calls. With spending many hours sewing face masks, I’ve been just a few feet away. Even when I’m downstairs, I can hear some of them. I’m accustomed to a semi-quiet house. Prior to the stay-at-home: he is at the office, oldest child has left the nest, youngest is still home but in college and working part-time. Having him home is wonderful, but I didn’t realize how much I was accustomed to quiet (I do watch TV while stitching or doing chores but at a very low volume).
We live on almost 8 acres with a garden, chickens and bees. I find myself walking outside “to check on things” a little more often than normal. But that is more difficult now that the heat and humidity have moved in – ha ha – so middle of the day outdoor checks are not as often.
