President Macron addressed the French nation last Nov24 to announce new measures to fight this health situation that the world is going through right now.
I thought we’re ending the lockdown on December 1, but turns out that it will be on Dec15 instead. Yesterday, the new changes were implemented, particularly on the extension of the distance that we can go for exercise: 20km for 3hours. Hehe. And then when the lockdown ends on the 15th, the curfew will be back. Good thing was, they gave a special exemption on Christmas Eve (24th) and New Year’s Eve (31st). But I hope people will still observe safe health measures so we can all be done with this already. The health workers are getting saturated with all the amount of work that needs to be done in the hospitals and the rise on the issues of mental health and domestic violence is staggering.
But enough talk of Covid for now. I went out last week for a quick visit at the Antibes English bookstore and bought some Christmas cards to send to my parents and friends. Perhaps, it will be nice to receive something physical right now as a gift, like as if we’re going back to the basics. Anyway, what we can all agree here is that this year taught us to appreciate what we have and I would like to do something for my loved ones this year despite the distance we have right now.
Reading. A regency romance novel.
Writing. I finished two chapters last night. I’m so proud of myself, haha!
Listening. The quiet hum of my laptop, and the stillness of the street under lockdown outside.
Smelling. My humidifier is on right now, and I used one of the essential oils that I bought in Marche Provencal last summer. A mixture of eucalyptus, lavender, rosemary and thyme just like the one below:
Wishing. For this pandemic to be over, so, I can go home and visit the family in spring.
Hoping. For a focused mind this week. I got a few hats to wear right now at work. It’s keeping me really busy.
Wearing. It’s a bit colder, but I’m in my cotton shorts and shirt. The cuddle weather is here and sometimes in the morning, it’s difficult to leave the bed.
Loving. The silence in my street during the lockdown. ESPECIALLY DURING SUNDAYS
Needing. To lie down. This scent coming from the essential oil filled the apartment with some kind of warmth and comfort at this cold weather made me just want to lie down and stare at the ceiling, even when I have a few things left to do today 😀
Feeling. Relaxed. I cleaned and vacuumed the entire place today cos it started accumulating dust. Everything’s spic and span now. 😉
