Hey Friends …. I know … it’s getting weird out there. It’s getting scary in a lot of places, including Santa Clara County where I am. And yes, we’re staying home. So here’s my list of the good things about staying at home. And please know that I’m not making light of what we’re going through right now AT ALL. I’m just trying to keep myself positive.
WHAT’S SO GREAT ABOUT STAYING HOME?
#1 Your pets are SO excited to have you home with them. Look at this girl’s happy face?!
#2 I might learn to cook. Maybe. I’m the queen of eating out and getting take out, but I actually cooked one night last week: baked salmon with brown rice and vegetables. So healthy! OMG, who am I?
#3 It’s a great time to take a break from hair products and heat tools. And now is the time to dig out the hair mask or deep conditioning treatment that you never seem to have time to use.
#4 Along the same lines, it’s a chance to give the skin a break from make up and treat yourself to an at-home mask!
#5 You could try some new exercise. I’ve been doing yoga on You Tube. There’s plenty of ways to stay active at home. And walking my dogs on quiet streets seem to be one of the few low risk “out and about” activities I can engage in. It’s a great excuse to get some fresh air and sunshine.
#6 Clean out that closet, those drawers, etc. etc. etc. … Dear Lord, I always need to do this. And maybe this time I’ll tackle places I never get to: like the closet in the spare room, the junk drawer, the shelves in the basement (well … let’s not get too carried away.)
#7 It’s the perfect chance to read! It’s one of my favorite things to do and I don’t do it enough! Can’t wait to catch up on blogs and indulge in some mystery novels.
#8 Catching up on movies and shows. Need a good laugh? If you have Netflix, try Tom Papa’s comedy special “You’re Doing Great” … (the first half is the best). And … is anyone else excited for the return of Westworld?!
#10 Spending time with your family at home … quiet time, down time, time when you’re not rushing off to some place else … Precious, right?
With everyone going through this virus scare together, I’d love to know what you’d like to see on the blog in the next month or two. Are you even interested in fashion right now? Is a trend report crass right now … or a nice distraction? Maybe you’d like to talk about athleisure for working from home? I honestly don’t know and would LOVE to hear what you’d like to read about in the comments below!
And most importantly: be safe and stay healthy.
Best to you all always,
