Hey there, just want to check on how you guys are doing? How’s your life during the pandemic? I know a lot of bloggers have slowed down after the lockdown started, including me. So just wanted to know what you are up to. Let me know in the comment section.
Today marks a week of rain and thunderstorms in Sydney. The first day of summer doesn’t feel like so, but I love it. The wind howling among tall Gum trees or the sound of rain falling incessantly on the window, this week felt calming. Hopefully, my succulent will survive so much water.
Working from home has given me enough time to start studying new courses online. Our company provides us with free courses on Udemy and I am trying to take good advantage of it. I have also started Yoga Teacher’s Training (200 hours) course to further deepen my practice and avoid any injuries as I try to advance. This course has given me an excellent insight into Yoga philosophy and Anatomy. I even cleared my Anatomy test after studying for weeks. Yayy! Right now I am studying sequencing of Yoga asanas and bought this awesome book as a complimentary reading.
My little one is learning new tricks that make me super anxious. We have taken down two more shelves from the wall as he now climbs up on stools and chairs to reach for items. He is absolutely fearless in the pool which makes me even more anxious. Doesn’t hesitate even one bit to jump into it and screams murder when we try to take him away. Thankfully, we have got a proper fence around it which even I struggle to open. He is a total water baby, unlike me.
As he is growing up, working from home is becoming quite interesting. He usually attends my daily standup calls in the morning, with his police car running over my keyboard. Sometimes I attend calls with nursery rhymes playing in the background while he is peacefully spreading all my stationery items across the floor, or peacefully sleeping in my arms. After which I have to use my mom-ninja skills to transfer him to the bed without waking him up.
Staying home and no travel time had made me quite lazy in the morning. I would wake up late and sleep late and dark circles were reaching my jaw!! So I asked my husband to be in charge of waking me up. Well, let’s just say he is performing that role a little too well. I now have enough time to exercise or practice an hour of yoga in the morning and get ready for work. It clears out my evening. I can study and spend time with my toddler, who now also likes putting his fingers in my nose.
Like many, my family back home wasn’t safe from Covid-19 either. Everyone in my immediate family got it. Thankfully they recovered and are doing well. Staying so far away doesn’t make it any easier.
The start of November reminds me of just how close we are to the year-end. This year has been nothing like I planned, but I am going to make the best of it anyway.
Hope you all have a lovely week ahead.
