Just another day.
As I reflect on the day, I realize that this felt like a relatively normal day of work for me. Over the years, there have been many times that I had meetings away from my job, so I ended up working remotely for the remainder of the day. So remote work is not a completely foreign thing for me.
Today, I had a number of work-related projects that were time-sensitive and required intense focus and some structured time to complete. For the first time since moving into this remote working environment, I had enough to do to actually take the full day.
Oh, I managed to do some personal stuff in between work things. I mopped the kitchen and bathroom, and did some prep for dinner. I also took time away from my paying job to handle some items for the non-profit board I am on, and I also folded and put away laundry. But overall, most of my day was actually taken up with my job.
This is one of the few days in the past three weeks or so that I have felt like my workflow was relatively normal. So today felt like just another day.
Unlike most days, I never felt the urge to check the news today – so I have no clue if there’s anything new to report about the current situation. And to be honest, I really don’t care to know. I enjoy not being dragged into them abyss of negativity by reading too much news.
So this post today is rather short and to the point. My sparkling isolation today was not anything weird or bizarre. It was just a day where I was getting work done while I was at home, while managing to clean my apartment a bit and also to prepare a fantastic meal for dinner.
Really, I have to admit that today felt rather nice. I enjoyed the quiet and solitude.
Like I said, just another day.
It’s only Quarantine if it comes from the Quarante province of France. Otherwise, it’s just Sparkling Isolation.
