I have spent the majority of my quarantine working. I wish I could say that I have been able to sew and binge watch tv but that hasn’t been in the cards for me. I work in Agriculture and we still need to get the crops in the fields for the world to be fed. So I have kept really, really busy. My bright spot in each day has been listening to some of my favorite music while I work and turning on some live music and listening. A lot of entertainers have been playing daily and weekly musical shows on different apps and I have really enjoyed listening to them. I have also been reading a lot. It calms the mind each evening to grab a book and get lost in a story. This is a little stack of books I have read since the quarantine started.
Above are my favorite classics that I can always read over and over. Missing is to kill a Mockingbird which is my absolute favorite story. Persuasion runs a close second.
I still have so many books in my to read piles. Here are a few that are at the top of the stack. So many books and so little time…. But the quarantine has allowed me a bit more time…I am trying to use it doing things that bring me joy.
