Passing the Time at Home

Post by Accrete »

If you are stuck at home because you are sick, be cautious to not catch the current virus going around, low on funds or out of work it can be challenging not to get bored. You can only spend so much useful time on the internet so what are you doing offline to help pass the time?

One thing might be to get things organized around the house.

Here are some ideas if your are bored from Apartment Therapy: 94 Fun Things You Can Do at Home, Anytime (And Often for Free)

I'm only going out if I have to. Groceries, doctors appointments etc. My gym membership isn't getting any activity or participation from me for the last couple of months. I've seen how the gym equipment has been used prior to the virus outbreak, which was pretty disgusting - even then. Now, since almost all of the machines/equipment require "hands on" to make them work, I wouldn't even want to touch the handles. Until Goodlife installs special hand sanitizer dispensers (which I don't see them doing anytime soon) and continue to just using the spray bottle of water and paper towels, I'll work with the weights and machines I've got at the house.

That sounds too much like work though I did give the glass top stove a good scrubbing today.

Like LMD I am only venturing out when I truly need something.

My wife will bring all the cooties home as she can not seem to stay at home. :)

Not sick around here but following officials request that we stay home. This week has been nice so...

Little deck outside shed done and stained (all materials purchased before lockdown). 2 planter boxes made from scraps and ready for dirt and plants.

Old wine disposed of and bottles ready for the bottle depot.

Waiting for the nice, consistent weather to arrive I mostly spent the week reading.

We did get our upstairs AC replaced on Thursday. With a partially working system the last two summers were miserable and the electric bills high. If I'm going to get sick I intend to be cool while doing it.

I've seen a couple of videos of people having their dogs jump over rows of toilet paper rolls in their hallway, with each pass making the dog jump over a higher stack of TP rolls. Eventually, this one dog snuck around the stack of TP under a table to get thru.

I now have a better idea where all the TP has gone. :roll:

Bought a couple things online from Best Buy. I purchased one of the items on the 13th. A label for that item was printed up the next day. Since then, nothing has happened. No movement whatsoever.

So, since today is the 20th (6 days later), and "tracking" shows no further movement, I tried sending a "contact the seller" note to ask what's going on. It failed with some error, time after time.

I decided I'd call the Support line at BB. Waiting time for telephone calls to speak to a human? : 5 hours. :shock:

Well today was a full time job watching press conferences first hand...

Then the Provincial Health Officer and Minister of Health were on the news for a half hour answering questions.
