COVID-19 Layoff: Day Forty One

This weather can’t make up its mind.

One day it’s a snow storm every ten minutes, the next day it’s sunny and warm enough for my pale skin to burn and now it’s always super windy and rainy! Pick a season please!

Today I wanted to get out of the house so I went to Shoppers Drug Mart with Amanda. We both got some nail polish and I got nail polish remover. I never do my nails because I’m usually just washing hair all day long but since I’m not why not? I picked out a nice steel colour. I’m actually in love with it and might keep them like this for the duration of the quarantine.

Cute! Excuse the messy nails LOL

After that I picked up some hangers to help organize my closet. My boyfriend has a shit ton of shirts (that he doesn’t wear) and I barely have any but that’s because most of my clothes are still at my parents. Slowly but surely I will get there!

Came back to walk Drax and try to stay busy. Did the closet, cleaned kitchen, did nails, did Dave’s expenses, played Animal Crossing and now in bed with a migraine that is keeping me awake (stupid weather).

It was great to get out of the house, my mental health definitely needed it besides just walking Drax all the time. I feel refreshed and now can go back to being locked up again waiting for a million packages to come, okay 4 and two of them are my sisters.

That’s about it folks, productive day for the most part. How is everyone doing? Go outside for the morning and buy small things like $5 nail polish!

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Thirty Six

How is everyone doing?

Today was a quiet day, which is alright every once in awhile but that has been everyday lately.

This morning I finished my friends cross stitch, it’s one of my better ones but it took FOREVER compared to the other ones I did.

Excuse the crappy nail polish but this is the bad boy I just finished. My friend loves mountains so I thought I do this for her. All of them have something to do with something they like, some are simple but it’s the thought that counts. Plus they’re all mini so bigger ones can come later!

The rest of the day was watching the movie Tag, playing Animal Crossing and now watching the NFL Draft.

Hope everyone has a good night.

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Twenty-Nine

Snow, snow, snow.

Did it snow where you live today? This morning I woke up to a beautiful sunny but cold morning. I walked Drax, made my breakfast and started a movie while Dave was asleep. All of the sudden outside went dark and I looked over to see white. It was a blizzard outside. Literally all day that happened so we had to time our walks with Drax to not get caught in a random blizzard. Oh and all the snow, didn’t stay the sun would come back out and it melts.

Today was a meh day, I don’t know if it was the weather or what but I just wasn’t feeling it. Not much was done, I played animal crossing, made oatmeal chocolate chip muffins and started the first season of Ozark. Dave has seen the first season but he’s a bad Netflix boyfriend and watches shows without me. For example the movie I watched this morning was called 13 hours. He woke up an hour into it and said we already watched this! I said no, I’ve never seen this. He once again said we did. 13 hours is based on a true story and I love movies based on true stories and usually get hooked onto them – I have never seen this movie until this morning. Dave finally realized he watched it without me. Do any of you have bad Netflix significant others? Let me know in the comments!

So everyone in the quarantine has been baking, since you know all the flour and yeast have disappeared from grocery stores. What is everyones favourite quarantine recipe? I’ve only really made two new things so mine would have to be the bread, once I find the recipe again on Pinterest I will link it for you. I want to make more things though!

Working out needs to start again so I will figure that out. I want to get Hannah Bowers bands but money, money, money!

Tomorrow morning I’m most likely going to move all our plants into a bigger pot since the roots are coming out the bottom of most of them. I’ll have to take a new picture to keep you updated. My Mum sent me a picture that says, “Happiness is watcning your plant starting to grow.” 100% accurate. I don’t know what it is about it but it does make you happy. Even the succulent my client gave me is growing and THAT makes me happy because I usually kill those but I love them.

How’s everyone holding up? Another month to go, we can do this.

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Twenty-Eight

What day is it?

Today was a stressful blur. Last night and this morning I had a heart attack over the whole CERB thing. On Twitter and Instagram I saw that you need to reapply every month for the CERB, however Twitter and Instagram weren’t very clear when they posted this and sent everyone into a freenzy. We figured it out for the most part and I was done panicking eventually.

So yesterday I totally forgot to tell my funny dinner story. I made spaghetti and homemade meatballs and it was delicious but I didn’t tell you about raining pasta. When Dave and I have spaghetti we break the uncooked pasta because I have a tongue ring and it gets wrapped around it. I was struggling to break the big bundle I had so I made it into two smaller bundles. I broke one bundle in half but pieces went flying everywhere! Like I was standing in my kitchen that over looks my living room, pieces rained down on Dave sitting on the couch, flew to my dogs bed on the other side of the livingroom and by our jackets hanging up on the other side of the house. We laughed then sure enough I did the exact same thing with the second bundle. EVERYWHERE.
Naturally, I didn’t clean it up because I was lazy then ate way to much pasta. The next morning I walked into the bathroom and felt something stuck to my sock, I tried kicking it off but nothing so I lift up my foot and sure enough pasta was stuck in my sock. Needless to say I vaccumed today only to miss a full size pasta noodle! No idea where that one came from!

Today was pretty much a repeat of yesterday, I played with Drax, waited until he went to nap and played animal crossing. Now my plans are to shower and cuddle Drax in bed, living the dream.

The new Animal Crossing game is actually really fun, they added in A LOT, literally building everything from the ground up. I love it but you definitely need some help on what to do because you end up doing nothing. I’ve been doing well for the most part still it’s work this one, but it’s a good thing! The other one you get bored of fishing to pay off your incredibly high loan.

That’s it for today. I’m going to think of more ideas for this blog since I have another month of COVID layoff.
