Check out the “Let it Snow” Xmas 2020 Group youtube project!”
I sit in the mornings to watch the birds come to the feeders (and the squirrels). We have had 7 vultures roosting in the trees here so I watch each of them take off in the mornings. Then I go outside to the woods and search for mushrooms. When I come back in, it's time to work in the music room. I then spend time petting the cats and my wife.
Good to see you are all busy at things you like to do! There's some nice pics here of gardens, homemade masks and wooden handled spoons.
I am technically still working from home, so I am on a computer for a good bit of the day. My schedule has really flipped though. I've been staying up until 1 or 2 in the morning and sleeping in later. Something I would never be doing under normal circumstances.
I have been working on an addition for quite awhile. I just got it all painted and bought trim for the windows. I didn't borrow any money to build it and only pay contractors for what I know I can't do. As a result it is taking longer than a normal project. Right now I'm in the process of installing a dual zone system. It's been going slow too because some of the things I need to complete it are on back order due to the virus.
My toilet paper hunting hobby is really on a roll. Tough to wipe that off of my schedule *ahem*.Just kidding about that one.
I'm cooking, cleaning, tending small animals, going a little nuts sometimes. My church is initiating a long term video streaming solution and I have been a part of that. We had a few successful streams on the surface. Behind the scenes we are working through a whole bunch of technical issues because we are growing it and growing with the tech which doesn't always work like it should.
Shame we can't mention "music related" because things are really busy in that area for me. Glad to see all of you well !
Happy Anniversary, @Mouse

And an LOL on @starise "My toilet paper hunting hobby is really on a roll. Tough to wipe that off of my schedule"
I haven't been able to do much outside the past few days, or for the next few days. Much chillier weather, more like March, and rain, rain, rain.
I've been buzzing my own hair for 25 years. The other half bought human shears for her dog then gave them to me when she realised her error.
I enjoy not having to go to a hairdresser: -
a) they inflict horrible conversations on you
b) they take calls on their mobile phones and rush out onto the pavement to get better reception leaving you stranded
Fiddlerman, If you can do it why not? Moonshadows....same weather here maybe slightly warmer. Rain.That grass is really going to grow now.
cid congratulations on your anniversary. Two people stayed together for a long time and didn't kill one another. That says a lot.
Not sure what kind of "style" your husband has. Us men usually aren't too particular. I'm trying to decide if I should go with a pony tale or cut it all off. Probably the only time I could get away with it....seriously though, I have a set of clippers that I have used on occasion. It's a really easy decision for me. It's either the number 3 or the number 4 cutting attachment. I can run that though like I'm cutting my lawn in maybe 10 minutes and be done with it.
Those who cut their own hair are called "autosonorialists". I have been one since the mid 60s since I couldn't trust a barber to leave it long. To learn how to do it is easy with scissors. Grab a hank of hair between first and second finger and cut it off on top of the fingers. Do that all over the head. Next time leave it longer where you want it longer. Within two months you'll have it perfected.
Good going CID. Lots of changes happened within those years of marriage.
Cutting my hair is something that I've stopped doing during the current period of blissful confinement. I do keep my beard trimmed, but the hair is growing well; it'll be going through the Krusty the Clown phase in the next month, and I hope it'll attain its full glory inside a year. I'm regressing back to the 1970s.

I work for an essential business, so I am still working, just from home, but being stuck at home my mind is always going. Mainly I am just cleaning all the time. Seriously, I feel like I can't stop vacuuming, lol. For as many hobbies as I have, I can't focus on any of them, lol.
I make videos with a bear puppet for my friends kids... started out as just a one off "I'm losing my mind" video with a teddy bear talking to me that I did to be silly, but the little kids (and some of the childless bored adults, lol) begged for more, so I kept it going. So I guess weird bear puppet videos are my new quarantine hobby.
