Great thread.  Those eggs look great and it would be fun for the children to ice them, too. 

As a reluctant gardener and housekeeper I was really glad to read in the Daily Telegraph online that councils in Britain are warning people off major gardening projects and spring cleaning because it will create a sudden build up of rubbish that councils are unable to collect at the moment. 

In Ireland I read people are being warned off DIY projects too, because they've had so many Accident and Emergency admissions for injuries incurred that way. 

So for me, this an opportunity to finish a book, or to make a cake without feeling I should be doing something else.

It has also been really nice to be able to catch up with elderly relatives on the phone, and have a proper chat, rather than having to cut the phone call short because there's an error to run.  

My 94 y.o. neighbour and I used to meet frequently for coffee but now we ring each other first, say, "Put the kettle on", and then ring each other back and have a coffee and a chat on the phone instead.  It's great!

Hi!

Of course, I'm going to suggest learning how to knit! 

Kick off the shoes you've worn outside at your doorway (so you don't track the virus into your home) and slip on nice warm slippers.

Here's an easy pattern for beginners to make slippers.  

https://www.simple-knitting.com/knit-slippers.html

There's tons more pattern sites and lots of instructional videos on YouTube.

😸 knitting makes me purrrrrrr

3+ weeks at home and I would love some ideas too!

I have kids to keep entertained too and we've baked together,done a lot of art type things(my 8 year old has made multiple batches of slime), watched movies, built with Legos, board games, etc.  As of last week the kids went back to school for eLearning...that is a challenge in itself as I am not a teacher!

One thing our city is doing is a teddy bear scavenger hunt.  People put teddy bears in their windows for kids to find while out walking.  We have 2 windows full of stuffed animals because my daughter wanted it to be more than just a bear.  When I took a walk yesterday I saw a lot of cheery windows in our neighborhood!

We also discovered Art Hub for kids on Youtube and that's really fun for adults and kids to learn to draw. 

Kitty, I learned how to knit years ago, but have forgotten completely.  This makes me want to try again, maybe.

It's like riding a bicycle.  Your fingers will remember!  I'll be around to answer questions if you need assistance.  

Also, there's patterns for Knitted Face Masks....

Instructions for sewing fabric face masks....

 

I'm trying my paws at sewing a face mask...

I spent the day yesterday sewing facial masks.  I really detest sewing, but there is a need.  I am so glad that I “hoarded” a couple of bins of sewing supplies.  There was no need to go out.  I first used up all the scraps that I saved  (I always thought they would be put to good use) as they already had been washed and shrunk.  A little more time intensive, but worth it.  My daughter laughed at the fabric colors.  Many were ones that she choose when she was little.  Oh, how her tastes have changed!  Once cut, the sewing part was easy once I got a system down.  

These masks will go to my extended family and neighbors in need who have chronic issues or must venture out for food.  I am going to keep sewing them for hospital use.  They are good at covering the N-95 masks.  I hope our local hospitals will get the supplies they need and these masks will not be necessary.  

Like so many of you, I find baking comforting.  My kid who is now studying online needs cheering up and hubby is working on taxes.  Chocolate chip cookies are on the menu today.

Our family made masks out of bandanas and rubber bands...it gets hot in there!  At least we have something!

Cyclinglady...so cool that you are sewing masks for others...love that. (((Hugs)))

My kids are struggling with this too.  I have one in college, one in high school and one in elementary.  All of them miss their friends a lot...therefore comfort baking is a must!  Today we are making snickerdoodles.  Your chocolate chip cookie sound great!

When making masks you might want to add a salt filter.  Just a layer of cloth soaked in salt water and left to dry will work.  The idea is virus water droplets dissolve a little of the salt.  Then the salt dries out and destroys the virus in the process.  The salt crystals break it apart.  I plan to use a salt filter layer inside a rubber band mask.  Then i can take the salt filter out when I want o wash the mask.

I am spending a lot of time with the famiky.  I am playing badminton in the backyard with the family. My son requires Monopoly daily. We have more board games he is just not interested in the others. We are also not doing DIY projects as other poster pointed out due to injury risk although we have a bunch to do. I will probably have to pull out the sewing machine to make masks this weekend. I'll have to locate old sheets etc.

I am taking webinars to support my credentials while at home when I can find one open/available. I had planned to clean and read more, but any work opportunity comes first. My kids need more attention and support as the shut down rolls on. Not complaining that is my job,and what I signed up for as Mom. Just observation.

I try to spend time with our immediate family and make special meals or treats when I can. I even gave my husband a haircut last week per request. We had the clippers and scissors from prior 2008 recession.  We required cost cutting back then due to our particular circumstances so all our previous cost cutting measures are reinstated again due to social distancing and prudence.

 I planned on more reading, audiobooks, exercise etc, but as many of you mentioned remote work, remote learning for kids, require organizing everyone's time, and space indoors which limits some autonomy.

Stay safe evryone.

One of my friends tried this today and said it was delish!

I decided to do something new/different today.  I took a free online ballet class.  I haven't done ballet since I was 10!  My arms are super sore already from holding the positions, but it was fun and something new for exercise.  

Our school district got the notice today that we are out until the end of the year.  eLEarning is not the greatest.  My kiddos really miss having a social life.  Had to cry about that one a bit.

Hey, I cut my hubby’s hair yesterday.  Not bad.  I guess we will find out how well I did when he sees his barber.  😆

Another mask making video for the non-expert sewers out there.

https://www.countryliving.com/life/a32196101/funny-face-mask-tutorial/

 

If you don't like putting a rubber band or elastic over your ears, try this.  Attach a loop of cord or twine or whatever you like on one side of the mask.  Make a small hook by bending a paperclip and tie it on the loop.  On the other side of the mask attach a length of elastic loop.  Now you can put on the mask and hook the elastic behind your head.  This only uses elastic on one side of the mask so it saves elastic.  And makes it possible to wear the mask without tying it behind the head.  
I  made a mask by cutting the sleeve off a t-shirt.  I used safety pins to secure the edges.  It works pretty well and no sewing needed.

Been doing a whole lot of recipe testing, carrot cake muffins took 4 tries to get right, then adjusted that to be zucchini breakfast muffins, just made up a batch of lemon cream cheese cookies (used Miyoko cream cheese to keep it diary free)...well 3 dozen. Going to be deep frying up some catfish on Friday and serving with homemade coleslaw, I am thinking of seasoning coconut flour and crushed pork rind panko and doing a dip in the flour, eggs, then roll in crushed pork rinds and deep frying.

Spending a lot of time online on a game I have been playing for 11 years now EVE Online, sort of a Space MMO game, got active in my corporation on it and joined up with others and pretty much just reigning terror on entire solar systems. I have referral links if anyone wants to join up lol.

Also had more time to work on my cosplay hobby...oddly repurposed some old gear I had and made up a Umbrella Corporation Solider, Also playing with working on doing a plague doctor cosplay, more adjustments to my Alucard Cosplay, and trying to work on a few obscure ones of characters I like.
Been working out more heavy and trying to bulk up, the extra baked goods helps boost my calorie intake.
Stuff gets worse I might just start going out in full cosplay more often for daily store runs.
