When I feel stir-crazy, I crochet to relax.  To distract myself from my extreme fear of Covid-19, I took out my crochet hook and yarn, and so far my new scarf is 30 feet long. 

I’m also making batches of homemade yogurt round the clock.  So far I have made 15 gallons.

Last night I polished 14 pairs of shoes.  When I was done, I took paper towels and spray cleaner and I scrubbed the bottoms until they looked brand new.  By the way, these are all stilettos that I never wear.

My next project is to take apart my crystal chandelier and wash each piece with soapy water.  The only problem is I have no idea of how to take it down from the ceiling, but the good news is that I have all the time in the world in which to figure it out.
