Chaneling my mother

The corona virus has impacted my life by limiting what activities I can do outside my house. I have not been able to travel to visit family in other states, requiring utilization of technology such as zoom and facetime to connect to distant family. I am usually active at least three times a week with volunteer activities and since these are community based I have had to limit these to just a few that I can do from home. This virus has caused me to work on, not yet complete, in home projects, which I report to my family as means to channel my mother. A women, who lived to 103 years old, who was always busy and was not afraid to take apart an appliance or sewing machine that was not working. I have broken apart two sewing machines with broken gears, and realize that my mask sewing project may never get started. So… moved on to removing paint from chairs and tables.
