taking stock: quarantine, week 3.

week 3 definitely had its ups and downs. i hit a little bit of a mental wall on wednesday afternoon and gave myself a little time off. there are lots of things – and people – i miss, but we are slowly figuring this out. also, apparently it’s april now?

forever my favorite. memphis, tennessee. april 2020.

books read.

yes, i technically read four books last week, but three of them were graphic novels and therefore went really quickly.

  • harry potter and the prisoner of azkaban by j.k. rowling [forever my favorite in the series]
  • march: books one, two, and three by john lewis and andrew aydin; art by nate powell

things watched.

  • a league of their own. it holds up.
  • seinfeld: finished season 7
  • scrubs: season 1, episode 1 [to go along with the first episode of fake doctors, real friends, zach braff and donald faison’s new scrubs rewatch podcast]
give me all the garlic knots. memphis, tennessee. march 2020.

supporting memphis / small businesses.

  • buddy prints from getARCHd for my buddies and me [that promo was only for last week, but they are coming up with new ideas each week]
  • food from aldo’s, dwj, india palace, wing guru, and mulan
yummy in my tummy. memphis, tennessee. april 2020.

recipes made.

seen on a walk. memphis, tennessee. april 2020.

physical activity.

all the walking. anytime i have to call someone, i’m out the door with my airpods in my ear so i can walk and talk. this included:

  • a long walk during my therapy appointment on wednesday
  • a 20-minute run on thursday
  • an hourlong walk on sunday afternoon

i’m super bummed that shelby forest – and all state parks – are now closed. i get it, but i’m still bummed.

friend connections.

this was a big week for the phone chats! i joked on wednesday that my social life is busier during quarantine than it was before, and there is definitely a ring of truth to it.

  • whatsapp chat with maggie and katie
  • zoom call with lauren and jen
  • zoom / facetime with sarah and corrinne
  • friday night virtual cooking lesson with molly
  • facetime with chrystal and pat
  • facetime with lauren and sam
neighborhood art. memphis, tennessee. april 2020.

house projects.

  • cleaned the stove!
  • cleaned off the coffee table
  • ran the roomba through my bedroom
  • started purging books

it was a pretty low-key week around here. let’s see what week 4 has in store for us.

how are all of you holding up? sending hugs to anyone who needs them.
