Self-isolation Day 1 - COVID-19

How's isolation coming along for you folks so far? It's playing tricks on my mind by now, considering my depleting coffee reserves. Anyway, I have started maintaining a log of what's been happening since day 1 of isolation and work's been keeping me busy as well thanks to all these Corona updates but it's good to have work although from home.

Here we go ...

COVID-19: Self-isolation, Day 1

Woke up to Coco's evil laughter and constant salaams.   

Got ready to conquer the world this fine Saturday ... soon OCD settled in!  

Inaugurated the awesome wiper I purchased during last week's panic buying. 

OCD continued penetrating within ... washed the balcony and much to my satisfaction happily stared at a few litres of dirty water pouring out of the pipe ... woohoo! 

Wiped almost every surface with a muslin cloth and disinfectant spray. 

Watered my 'finally thirsty' cacti and arranged them with respect to their thorny demeanour.

Mentally made a list of books to read.

Coco continued laughing, 'Ha! Ha! Ha!'.

Felt my throat getting itchy ... paranoia took over ...

For an evil moment I thought ... well I went for a client meeting 3 days ago, I am not alone, ha! But then sanity prevailed ... I'm fine, they're fine, we're all fine but we're all in this together ... work from home kind of situation and apocalypse outside.

Did a wee bit of client work before reminding myself that it's Saturday ... Saturdays are off my dear.

For some odd reason, spent the rest of the evening feeling agitated and frustrated.

Read a post on a Facebook group that asked to mention how you felt, followed by the last thing you ate ... Apparently, I was a 'frustrated biscuit'.

Still wanted a punching bag ... but in vain.

Did some knitting and watched a movie to distract myself from all the Corona news ... but then WhatApp!

Looked at the essential items that I bought before the lockdown, in admiration ... paint brushes, canvases, some more cacti plants ... bird food!

Felt sad about my depleting coffee reserve ... gained sympathies from friends on Facebook! :P

The dogs howled in chorus at night and continued amidst their 'kutta raj', there was no human outside to continue culling them ... life continued though not usually for humans so to speak ...
