Distancing and Isolation Activities

Stay Home. Stay Safe.
Is the mantra of 2020
What are people doing at home?
From the reports I’ve seen… plenty!

Self-sufficiency is now popular
Veggies patches are a’ growing
Bread is being made from scratch
Crafty people are knitting and sewing.

If only I could sew…

“Do It Yourself” projects
Are suddenly all the rage
While decluttering and cleaning
For many, take centre stage.

Gym junkies have adapted
Home-based options now abound
They workout in their living rooms
To help stave off the pounds.

The Arts can now be enjoyed
Streamed for free, at any time
Stage shows, plays, concerts
Plus museum tours online.

And, while we’re all cooped up
To avoid becoming ill
Some resourceful people
Are doing courses to up-skill.

Folks are learning instruments
They’ve always wanted to play
Others a new language
For next time they go away.

Board games are being dusted off
Old hobbies are being resumed
Catch-ups occur by video
With “quarantini” drinks consumed.

Industrious people are everywhere
Improving themselves and their homes
Me? I’d be more productive
If I just put down my phone!

Oh dear!
