It took almost two years into the pandemic for me to get Covid. My husband brought it home. Fortunately, we are both vaccinated and I got my booster in December, so our symptoms have been mostly mild. Two things have been frustrating, however.
- Being exhausted with chills and aches
- Having to take care of a hyper 6 year old who apparently doesn’t have Covid.
Normally she could go to school if Mommy and Daddy both just had mild colds with a sore throat, but we didn’t feel comfortable doing that.
Anyway, I have two things that I do as a rule every day:
- Yoga (except I only do that 6 days a week to give myself a full day off)
I gave up Yoga the moment my sore throat hit after my husband’s positive Covid test because I’ve read too many article on discontinuing exercise during Covid. However, I definitely want to keep the Art habit going. The problem is the exhaustion. I considered letting it go for today, but that would break my cycle of doing art each day for over a year. Right after my shower, I sat down with my sketchbook and added more detail to the Niagara Falls picture I’m doing. It only took about 10 minutes.
Here is what I have so far:. I worked on more of the lower falls section on the bottom left corner:
Yesterday, I worked on my picture while I was sitting on the sidewalk in line for my Covid test:
Have a healthy weekend! I’m heading to bed to try to shake this thing.
