We’re now in week two of social distancing and already ideas are flying on how to interact with each other.  It seems we are at our best when we have nothing to do.  So, creative juices are flying.  Minds are stirring.  Inventions are being made.  The things we have available to us are being used – kind of a MacGyver mentality.

Today I saw a recipe for beer bread – made with no yeast and one can of beer.  I have seen evidence of people making their own surgical masks.  There are tons of new uses for the internet.  When we’re bored we get creative. There are just so many board games.

My theatre group is working on serving our community with acting classes.  Soon the center of arts where Paul teaches will do the same.  Without this option, we are out of jobs.  It seems to me that America has always been a country of innovation.  It’s how we grew into such a strong nation.  Not only are we a collection of brilliant, creative, dynamic thinkers, but we also have the talents and positive thinking necessary to use what we’ve got and make it fit what we’re currently dealing with.

It’s only one week into this thing.  Last week I spent feeling sad, worrying some, trying to understand it all.  I even sent out a picture on social media showing the fact that I was still n my jammies and hadn’t bothered to put on makeup or comb my hair.  That was my state of being for the week.


I went to bed at eight o’clock last night and rose at eight o’clock this morning.  I have plans for the day.  A project that I’ve been putting off because I haven’t had time – a revisit to my novel which I don’t think will ever get done – trying a new recipe for bread – cleaning out the junk drawer – planning a class for my seniors via the internet (let’s see how me and technology work together.)  I’m energized.  I feel I can take on the world, but first I have to get dressed.





As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on

  1. Amen, Kathy! Necessity is the mother of invention. We’ll get through this, with some real prizes, some treasures at the end of it all. I’m feeling very blessed to have such a run down house, blackberries over taken the backyard, gutters over flowing. It’s a real mess, but what a gift. With all this time on our hands, nothing to do, and in desperate need of some exercise, we’ve been able to take on all these projects we really needed to take care of. Also, hard work helps to take your mind off your other troubles. 🙂

    Have you achieved the dressing part yet? If not, put on something easy to sleep in so you will have a running start tomorrow. 😀

      For the first few days I didn’t get out of my sleeping clothes. That was nice, but took away from the being ready aspect.
