    I finally got to practice. Zipped through the Led Zeppelin and other R&R and am back to my jazz standards. Am now having fantasies about getting good enough with those to do a little live stream or maybe just a video I can share; it's a side of me that no one has really seen me do live, so might be fun. Other than that we're all really quiet here today. The reality is sinking in and it's a little weird, to say the least. I'm a little cranky.

    Today the wife and I prepared dinner completely from scratch.
    Ravioli with a sausage and ricotta stuffing, red sauce, and a green salad.
    The red sauce is sitting on a simmer for a few hours to let all the flavors come together.
    We have red wine as well, but we did buy that from a local winery where I volunteer to host the tasting room, bottle, and make the wine. We were able to justify that was made from scratch too. :)
    It took a while, but that's ok. We have no where to go today, so time was on our side.
    We're getting used to having more time for being home, and this scratch prepared meal will be delightful this evening. We're also curious how we'll respond when life goes back to being busy again and we don't have this much free time.

    I have a sneaking suspicion that many of us are going to get quite accustomed to a more leisurely pace and doing more with less. It will be interesting to see what the new normal looks like when all is said and done. We're doing much the same, eating well and just enjoying the opportunity to relax.

    Our goal is to further simplify our lives so we can keep this current standard of living, but add back into it social interactions for recreation.
    We just cleaned out our closet this week, and disposed of everything in our storage unit we haven't touched in the last six months (minus seasonal clothing). That let us cancel the storage unit rental, saving $150 a month right there.

    Me, I think I'm just losing my mind, and it's only day 3 of full-time job, full-time teacher. I tried to make myself a PB&J today and failed miserably. :(

    :laugh: i laughed when i read the post about your husband's drumming --- what a hoot...but i know the situation!

    per the OP: pretty much the same stuff for my day-to-day routine (computer-based music stuff), but my nighttime routine has been affected: no public joints/gigs/rehearsals. lucky for me: i can drink those lagers while in quarantine. i don't remember where i picked up that skill.... :D

    1. Clearing trails in the woods.

    2. Riding bikes with my sons on the trails.

    3. Watching a metric ton of Primitive Technology on YouTube.

    4. Trying to get the garden started.

    5. Trying to figure out how to home school a pair of six and eight year old boys. This looks increasingly unlikely to happen.

    6. Playing the shizz out of my bass collection.

    Every time I reach for a tool, I begin to imagine the worst thing it could do to me and then I picture having to go to the ER with whatever that is and I move on to something less treacherous. The chainsaw was the first thing I put away.

    The only failure I see here is you didn't use crunchy PB.

  20. Yea, I thought about that a little today.
