As I write this, it is the 2nd week of lockdowns here in Sydney. Today, we had 50 new cases. The most cases in a 24 hour period since this start of this delta wave. There are unofficial whispers that it is likely this lockdown will be extended. We still have until the 16th to see if we can get it under control but I am not hopeful.
I’ve been working from home full time for 3 weeks now and yesterday I managed to wear my thermal inside only realising just before lunch.
Despite the past year, I still love being home. Whenever I need a break from work, I can inspect my indoor plants and my many avocado seeds that I’m trying to root. I don’t know what I expect to do with all these seeds that do root and grow. It’s just nice to see them grow. I like to move the soil around to ensure there is not too much dampness and this year learnt how to get rid of these small white bugs with a vinegar, dishwashing liquid and water concoction. It seemed to have worked very well.
I had a trip to the library before lockdown began and also got my hands on a sudoku puzzle book. I really thought I would devour the books more quickly but feel like I’m subconsciously pacing myself. I don’t really need to, I have a handful of my own half unfinished books on the shelf.
Add to this my 110 day learning streak on Duolingo and all the other general cleaning, I still find it hard to find the time to fit all my home activities in!
