Currently Reading: Just finished reading My Oxford Year, a recommendation from Ruth (thank you). It's an easy & enjoyable read, & it has me now wanting to read Middlemarch, which will fulfill the 2020 Reading Challenge of reading a classic you have missed from school. I cannot get at the moment as the library is closed until April 6th.
Currently Crafting: I made some cards & I'm working on a scrapbook double page spread to record this pandemic of COVID-19. I've had this sheet of a world map for a few years, now I have a perfect use for it. I've downloaded some stats from Health Canada to include in the journaling part.
Some of my cards:
|It's Pink - so my favourite|
|I will be stamping the sentiment in the white circle; maybe Thanks maybe Happy Birthday|
|Needs something in the middle of the circle|
|Not sure, but I think the die cut of Celebrate down the red|
Currently Watching: way too much TV, but with all this social distancing being encouraged, there's only so much spring cleaning, crafting or reading you can do or want to do. I am breaking out all of my Downton Abby series 1-6, then The Forsyte Saga, Series 1 & 2. There's also several museums offering free virtual tours, so I may go traveling this way.
Currently Wondering: if after all this social distancing, cancellation of trips, events & encouragement to be home, will there be a spike in the birth rate in 9 months? Cornials?
Currently Very Proud: that a Canadian team of medical researchers have isolated the Corniavirus-COVID19 virus. This is huge. You can read more here: CTV News.ca/health/coronavirus/canadian-scientists. There's also a team at the University of Saskatchewan working & gaining success on creating a vaccine. The researchers that had success in isolating the actual COVID-19 virus had a team member that worked on the Coronavirus-MERS, so lots of experience. The team is saying one thing they have learned about COVID-19, is that it's a sticky virus.
Currently Hoping: The three weeks of recommended/encouraged social distancing will help "flatten the curve" of infection. I think this S/D will impact the last of my WPSH finds, I may have to get really creative at home to find. How are you doing with your WPSH finds?
Stay healthy my friends, stay 1.3 meters away from people.
