COVID-19: The Good After The Enhanced Community Quarantine

As someone who telecommutes, being home-bound was never a problem. In fact I am able to have a flexible work schedule, eat nutritious cooked meals and linger longer in bed when everyone gets out of their houses before the sun rises to avoid the traffic rush. I look forward to the occasion when my parents and I buy our groceries, attend church services, enjoy a hearty meal at our go-to restaurant or simply waste time in a mall to people watch. And I seriously miss doing those. Surprisingly I am surviving! 

It is not all that bad though during this time. 

1. Making a quick trip to the supermarket, drugstore and the wet market are the only times my parents go out. The village we live in has a curfew. It is mandatory to wear a mask at all times when outdoors. The good is, our expense has decreased since we only spend on the necessities. 

2. The air is so much cleaner. With fewer vehicles on the roads now after the lock down, it is no surprise that the level of pollution has immensely decreased.

3. I am grateful that the industry I am a part of is not affected, enabling me to continue to work and earn a living.

4. Today's technology allows my family and the rest of my brethren to continue to listen to God's Words via online streaming. 

This pandemic will stop. I just don't know when. And I humbly ask our good Lord to end this global event once His will has been accomplished. 


  1. God's continued blessings on you and your family during this time of isolation. ~ FlowerLady

    1. Thank you, Ms. Lorraine. May God's blessings and protection be with your family too especially at this time.

  2. I don't post very often anymore, but I was happy to see your recent post and that you and your family are okay. We too are pretty much staying at home. We order our food online, and someone at the groceries puts them in our car trunk, so we don't even have to go into the store. (We just have to wash everything off with a disinfectant when we get home.)

    I guess being retired helps us a lot, since we are used to being at home most of the time and know how to keep ourselves occupied. I did make some face masks for our nearest hospital and some for our family. Our family is scattered in Fort Wayne, IN, ST. Louis, MO and Austin, TX, so we have all been able to communicate and see each other online using Zoom. We also have our Bible Study groups from church on Zoom and our worship services on You Tube.

    Praying you and your family will stay well....Janice

  3. Hi Ms. Janice,

    With the advent of technology, it is much easier to get even our essentials online. In the community we live in, we have a marketplace. Most of the essentials are sold by some of our neighbors. We order fish, meat, eggs and some snacks from them.

    The first few weeks were quite alarming after the lockdown. There were soldiers on the road to check on the destination of the car owners. Lucky those who have a vehicle. They can still go to work and at least earn a living.

    You are very helpful to make masks for others. Yes, keeping busy and staying indoors will be helpful for sometime.

    Praying too that you continue to be healthy and safe at all times. ! :)
