Social distancing, Week 2

JO_MuseeOlympique-01333
Cherry trees in the gardens of Musée de l’Elysée, Lausanne / March 2020

This week we went on a little expedition to the park behind Musée de l’Elysée in Lausanne, to see the cherry blossoms before they wither. There were very few people and we were extremely careful, but we still went home feeling guilty and slightly anxious. We probably won’t be doing that again soon. Funny, how something so simple such as leaving your home radius suddenly became a high risk activity.

Some other things from this past week:

  • Started a Coursera course on autism. This was recommended by my boss, and it’s a very well built course on the essentials of autism, which are very helpful for me to review. I hope I can get into a nice rhythm with these courses: first with the ones that are imposed, and later on with other subjects
  • Read few pages of Book 2 of a Portuguese translation of War and Peace that Jo recommended a few months ago
  • Watched This is Us at the end of the day, a nice and sweet series about two parents and their three children, in different time frames
  • My Pilates teacher has been giving our classes via Skype, but I’ve also been trying to squeeze in some Yoga with Adriene, which made me reeeelaaaaaaaxx my childbearing-childcarrying-weak-and-tight back
  • My brother is a personal trainer and yesterday he gave me a training session via Houseparty. He designed it just for me and today I am sore enough that I have the feeling of having worked out, but not enough to not make me want to again. It was very cool to be bossed around by him (not something my teenage self would have imagined me saying)
  • Got my very talented sister to teach me a little about photo editing and I’ve been trying my hand at that.
  • Starting to think about childproofing our apartment, because baby has definitely learned to move around!

Looking forward to this next week!
