Reading: A collection of Fran Lebowitz essays that I haven’t read in a while, for comic relief.
Audio: The news. Too much news. And a disco playlist that a colleague created for Spotify, to clear my mind afterwards.
Video: “Schitt’s Creek”…more welcome comic relief.
Eats & Treats: Stella d’Oro cookies. Halo oranges. Bread from our local French bakery, since we’re avoiding the supermarket for a while.
Drink: Gin & tonics during phone- and video-chats with friends.
Garb: Black Uniqlo pants and flowy folklore-ish blouses, for comfort.
Beauty Products: Hand sanitizers are the new must-have products, right?! I’m using up an EO French Lavender gel and starting to use a “sanitizing perfume” from Orris Perfumery — effective as any mass-market sanitizer, but it smells much better!
Pleasure: Sleeping a little later. Spending more time with the cats (and Mr. Professor, of course!). Not commuting, although I do miss my workplace.
Plans: Stay on track with working-from-home, while using the “extra” (non-commute) time to exercise and blog more often. *sigh*
What are you doing to cope with the “new normal”? Feel free to share!

I am able to go to the office for now as I am considered an “essential employee”. However, on Sunday I took a very long walk, watched live stream videos from local bands, had a nice dinner, changed perfumes several times, read news updates on my laptop, watched a little TV, read the newspaper, a magazine and a few chapters from a book I’m reading, and had a glass or two of wine.
