I’ve been away from home for five months now so I have been passing the time with mobile pastimes, such as genealogy and photography. Going through the coronavirus pandemic with my sister while she recovers from unrelated medical issues has been great for both of use. Staying at home gets old, but doing it with someone else helps save one’s sanity.
The Tortoise and the Cat
I don’t have pets at home but for the last few months I have been bonding with Cleo the cat and Tortuga the desert tortoise. Cleo has made the grass catcher on the lawnmower her favorite sitting place. We don’t know why she loves it so much. Tortuga loves eating rose petals after his daily lettuce and fruit.
Family History and Genealogy
Working on the family tree has been possible through Ancestry. I love discovering new facts or documents related to my ancestors.
Trees, Fences, and Flowers
Being confined to a small area, I have taken to photographing tree bark and fence patterns. Funny the things you can see when you really look. Flowers are also favorites subjects. Something is always blooming in California. I’ve been using my smart phone. I haven’t picked up my DSLR in 5 months.
