#1 – hanging out with friends and our craft days. Generally we have knit nights on Thursday nights. And every few weeks we do a craft Saturday or a craft Friday. We are doing zoom to meet virtually but it is just not the same.
#2 – I miss my retreats. There is something about taking all my quilty stuff and working on just quilts for 3 or 5 days. I get so much done.
#3 – Popping over to the store – my LQS for some fabric, my LYS for some yarn, and even my LNS to hang out and stitch with my stitchy ladies. And, even Joann’s or CVS or Petco for that one thing that I need. The hubby is our point person when going out in public and those things I needed before – well, I don’t need them so much anymore.
#4 – Making plans. It’s hard to make plans for the future because we don’t know what it will bring. How life will be and how we will need to adjust when we are allowed to go out again. International travel is definitely not in the books this year but what about domestic? I’m itching to go camping which we haven’t done in YEARS but for some reason I am feeling the call to do. Anyone else?
#5 – Food, eating out, going out to eat with friends and chatting about our lives
and I’m sure there are more… but these are just the top 5 that come to mind.
Yes! To all of these. Wondering what the new “normal” will look like, and when it will come.
