Working anyway

Checking in

It’s been a month since my Governor issued a stay-at-home order.  I am fortunate enough to be able to work full-time from home, but the only suitable location to do so is my studio, so I haven’t been working on the contest build.


I very much enjoy working from home as compared to the office, primarily because I have a loud coworker who narrates her day.  The only auditory disturbances here are the blue jay’s morning staff meeting and the afternoon chipmunk territorial disputes.  It is calming, and so much easier to concentrate and stay focused. 

My husband is not working, so is cooking elaborate meals, washing dishes, growing a beard, napping, and talking about cleaning the garage.  Ester loves having a daytime napping companion.

As you are, we are limiting trips out of the house, enjoying some outside time when weather permits (it hasn’t much), and trying to watch some news, to stay informed, but not too much news, because many other human’s behaviors are terrifying.  Mostly I watch the birds through my windows, and am appreciative that I fortuitously stocked up on seed before the pandemic.

Thankfully all our loved ones are healthy, and I hope they remain so, though I worry, of course, about the future.  I hope all of you are safe and healthy too.

Glad you're able to work from home and be productive! I miss your build but there's always a trade-off somewhere.

And yummy food is always a bonus!

Working from home IS a luxurious experience for me, too, and I am afraid that I will never be able to go back to a busy office environment! Luckily, so far in life I haven't had to! At this point in my life I own more pajamas than business casual! Enjoy every moment and continue staying well.


I am glad to see you are able to work from home! I am in the same position, able and happy to be home not having to deal with a "mutterer" at the next desk! :) My workstation is tucked up against the dollhouses... but my building table is still available for building...! And with the non-existent commute I have had to resort to extra mini projects to fill the time I'm usually in the car! I have no idea how I will adjust when things re-open.... but I won't worry about that now. Stay well! :)


I love your room! Love your set-up!
