Podcast: Lockdown Love w/ Jen Kirsch

I’m listening to this right now and have to share! One of my BFFs Jen Kirsch, journalist & relationship expert, has a new podcast on eOne called Lockdown Love and I love it! It was the Monday boost I needed this morning to kickstart my workday and have a little laugh.

She shares real stories about her own dating during COVID, talks to experts and her dad Dr. Kirsch even makes an appearance to comment on her ‘dating’ during COVID.

I love her voice, her storytelling, and how funny she is. I was literally laughing out loud.

You don’t need to be dating to enjoy it but if you are, you might be going through some of the same things she is. I can’t wait to see what’s next in this 8-episode mini-series. Congrats Jenny Jen!

Day 70: Please Stay Safe

Today Sean and Emily came to pick me up to go back to the cottage. The last few days alone in the city have been really nice. I’ve enjoyed seeing friends a safe distance and rediscovering the city’s beauty on my bike.

Looking forward to being back in the woods. Sean and I have been together 24hours a day since the start of March so after a few days apart, I can’t wait to hug him. He said the mosquitos are in full force which is a bit worrying but I’ll fight them the best I can. Little buggers!

This week, I’m hoping to get back into my creative groove and make some things. I hope the weather stays nice and I can get out for my first paddleboard session of the season. It looks like it might be a bit rainy which almost always makes me feel like writing or making something.

I’ve had a lot of anxiety about the pandemic over the past few days which I know is normal, but it doesn’t make it go away. Over the past few weeks, I’ve found happiness in simple things like drawing, embroidery, making clothes, or cut & paste. Each little activity helps to distract from the news and find a bit of joy. I hope you can find happiness in simple things and use what you have around you to inspire your creativity in new ways.


Please stay safe and wear a mask!

Day 69: Self-Isolation, Self Care, Self Time

I spent the morning on the patio writing and gave myself a much-needed spa day. I did a face mask, a hair treatment, and finished my book. My most recent read was an advance copy of Little Disasters by Sarah Vaughan from Simon & Schuster Canada. It was so good! Great story!

My plan was to venture out on the bike for a little ride around the neighbourhood and I ended up biking for hours. It was such a beautiful day and I was happy to be out, alone, and in the sun. I finally picked up some new fake flowers to decorate my basket.

Tomorrow Sean an Em are coming to pick me up and we’ll be back together as a family in the woods. I can’t wait. ?
