So, I know alot of people have more free time now that everything seems shut down and they are locked into their homes for much longer than they ever have been.

Now, I also realize there are those that have more free time than usual, because they are deemed essential or are still grinding away. For that, people are thankful.

But, for those that have this time forced upon them. What is the one thing you haven't had the time for and wanted to do, for yourself, that this opportunity offers you.

I'd like to think that in this time of boredom and solitude for many, something positive is possible.

So surely, you have wanted the time to do X but it just never came around. Well, it's here and are you going to take the opportunity.

Because the reality is this will pass and will you be able to look back and say, at least with the time I had I did X?

Nothing is too trivial and there is always so much to gain in self improvement.

So for me, it's physical.

I had a pretty rigorous exercise/weight routine that I had abandoned about 3 months ago due to a serious shoulder injury.

While I've been milking it(in my mind) for the last month or so, it's surely gone.

I'd like to have gotten back into the daily routine when the dust of this settles and the weather is nice, just to have the personal satisfaction and feel better when life returns to normal.

I'm trying to watch more YouTube and make snarky political posts on Facebook.

Or read more. And get in a couple of 50km days on my bike. Yeah, still mountain biking. We go out in small groups and stay away from people, keep social distance. I have high blood pressure, so exercise keeps my pressure down. It's a necessity, like taking medicine.

Bump my garden out.... 4 more 20 foot by 3 foot raised beds and the fencing that requires.

Plant 1/2 acre of wheat.

Expand my pond.

Plant 20 apple trees in the National park behind my house.

Make 10 more gallons of wine for this fall.

Get our cold greenhouse going for the spring.

Redo an outbuilding to include my rock collection and rock-tumbling equipment.

Clean up the summer kitchen, install a solar oven.

Other then that, just relax and watch the world burn.

I love this topic!

Interestingly enough, I was just talking about this with my sis’.

Bookmarking for a more expansive reply later. Got to take the doggy for a walk.

I’ll give a hint....

This Coronavirus, will define ALL of us. The true test.

Through adversity — springs wisdom.

We are just taking care of our animals. Our lives haven't changed much, at all. Social distancing isn't an issue, when your closest neighbor is a quarter mile away...

Chickens, ducks, goats... they care not, about corona virus.

I only worry, about my current human form... it's limited and vulnerable...

Reading and getting out on the bike are another few things I've hoped to get accomplished in all this.

1. Playing lots of games with my boys—video games, card games, D&D, catch, Nerf wars, etc.

2. Taking lots of walks with our dogs.

3. Lots of Tai Chi.

4. Trying to make some headway on the stack of books I’ll never make it through in this life.

5. Bottling some beer, drinking some beer, & brewing another batch. Repeating.

6. Riding the Harley (before #5).

Ive got a few projects, but the first is a DIY attenuator for the guitar amp.

Made a "cheap" one, which isnt bad but is far too granular, and decided to go a bit further. Id like to do a video on the assembly of the 2nd one, and a comparison. I tell myself that Im not allowed to "just put the new attenuator together," unless I actually film it.

It still lays disassembled upon my desk lol

My personal goal? Don't die and don't cause anyone else to die.
Also to plant my Spring patio container garden, which I accomplished today.

Remarkably while most of the people I know have been complaining about gaining weight I have been able to lose a little as I've actually been sticking to my diet (with my usual one cheat day per week). I've been self-quarantining since before the order because I'm high risk due to some medical issues and stay FAR away from others when I have to go out.
