Besides checking out BITOG more frequently -- what are we doing? I was laid off from my Welding job 3/20/20 due to lack of work from the Corona Virus. Now that I have been home and my county which I reside is on Mandatory stay at home. I have pressure washed the siding on my house, washed and waxed the GF Jetta, made some good killer home made meals and mowed/weed wacked the grass at the property twice. Also, sewed acouple patches on my work jeans -- yeah -- real bored at the moment.

Try baking bread and rolls for the family. Very satisfying. If you do not have bread tins, a cookie sheet for rolls also called buns. Usually all ingredients are in your kitchen now. May need more flour.
Enjoy...

I'm working from home. Been very busy with that. Today is paint and sip day with the wife. We will be watching a youtube video that will teach us how to paint while we drink some champagne.

In before the lockdown. My wife and are are working from home. I got my riding mower from my mom's storage building and mowed the lawn and fertilized it. I am going to get my boat out of storage in a week or two and will detail that out. I have a large fishing equipment room and gun room that needs a good arranging. I seriously need to organize my oil hoard and car products. Going to get the Corvette out of another storage area in a couple weeks. I have tons of work to do and I like to smoke meats on my Traeger and drink some beer and wine.

I voluntarily closed my shop about 10 days ago at the recommendations of our county. While I still have my receptionist on the phones, its been absolutely dead. Ive stripped sanded and repainted my Bilco doors in between the rain, did loads of yard work and pruning, and taking longer, slower walks. Also enjoying a cigar everyday now too, to take in the scenery.

Yesterday I waxed my Maxima in the garage, it was colder that I thought and getting the wax residue off was not easy. Meguier's Cleaner Wax.

Then in the afternoon it warmed up and I collected branches and leaves off the front lawn.

Read my kindle on the front porch. James Grippando, Cash Landing

Shared jokes with my siblings via text messages.

Walked the dog with my wife.

Considered taking off my snow tires, decided to wait another 2 weeks.

I've worked from home for 18 years, so still doing the same. The change is that we stay home, except for the essentials, which we only need to get every three or four days. We won't be a 'spreader', as this a very serious situation.

Thank you for keeping this thread about what you are doing with your time at home, while NOT giving medical advice.
