I don’t know about you but New Year’s Day seems like a lifetime ago! Work has been busy, the news has been nuts and the weather dull. Now with so many more people in strict lockdown from Toronto to Dublin and L.A. to Amsterdam, I’m hearing from friends and family who are now facing weeks at home. Many are back to homeschooling and several aren’t allowed to leave their homes except for groceries.
Sometimes things have to get worse before they get better and I get the sense this is exactly what’s happening now. I hope this provides just a bit of distraction and some ideas of how to creatively entertain yourself throughout the weekend.
P.S. If you are interested in participating in our free weekly planning sessions every Monday morning, you can sign up here and we will be sure to send you an invitation to the next session.
