Happiness and COVID

Hazel, my best girl.

Every single human being I know has had a difficult time and some point in the past 6 months.  Whether it is COVID-related or not, stress levels are at all-time high.  

That sounds like time to shake shit up and have some fun.

What has brought us joy recently:

  • Spending time with family.  We have started to safely extend our social distancing circle to include family and a few friends.  It was so nice to hug someone that didn’t live with me.  
  • Took a break from work.  Decided to take a break from my tastings to just relax and prepare for my latest wine exam.
  • Found new board games to love!  I mean, you haven’t lived if you haven’t played Chikapig, Cat Crimes or Exploding Kittens.
  • Made stuff – like bread, ice cream and cookies.  Nothing is better than homemade.
  • Ate WAY too much pizza.
  • Upgraded our outdoor space with a new fire pit and chairs.  
  • Hosted a small yoga class in my backyard.
  • Moved Liam into his new big boy room!
  • Purged my closet and created a little “clo-ffice” for myself.  It has a vintage chair, a window and a door.  All the necessities.  
  • Binged “The Last Dance” and bought a basketball hoop the next day.
  • Sat on my porch and watched the pouring rain.
  • Practiced my sabering skills.
  • Got a pedicure.  FINALLY.

What about you?  What has brought you pockets of joy lately?  Can’t wait to hear what you have been up to!
