How do I spend my day during Covid ?

19th of May 2020
A friend asked me this morning how I spent the days during Covid?

I have a plan which I try to follow, not in any nailed down order.

I wake up and go to my balcony and take some photos which I send with my morning greeting on Facebook. This greeting is what is in my mind that moment and will in a way make my day ahead. Kind of meditation

I make effort to make me beautiful in the morning and when I look into the mirrors during the day I look my best at that moment.

Good weather means summer dresses!

I sing, scales and arias every day . My voice needs practice.

Exercise is a daily part of the plan. Walking and strength training plus yoga. Now I’m also learning belly dance and if you think that’s easy, think again. Even the warm-up is hard work but I enjoy it

Portuguese study is also in the daily routine.

Every day I write to my diary, my thoughts and contemplations.

Talking to friends on Facebook and other media is also part of my day.

This is what I do every day and of course a bit more, different from day to day.

I’m trying to keep busy to survive the storm and manage well I think. I miss normal life but make the most of what is possible.

I just had not thought about how busy it looks when put on paper.

I am Icelandic but live in Portugal. When I was young I had a dream. I wanted to travel around the world. I wanted to experience different cultures. My dream came true and I went to London. When going through the Chinese display in the British Museum I began to cry. I cried and experienced this longing and sadness. At that moment I knew I had to go to China. Arriving there for the first time I felt finally at home, a feeling I never had in Iceland. In Iceland I was an outsider. My mother passed away and I decided to move. My destination was China. I lived there for a while but had to sell my house and move because permanent residence was not granted to me. I moved to Portugal and that was 6 and a half years ago. In China I taught English and dance. In Portugal I am a retired resident. Now I am 72 years old. I love to write and want to share with you some of my experience in those 2 countries and also just my simple thoughts. Portugal is my final destination on this earth. Even though I have many years behind me, my mind is clear. I enjoy the life and make the most of every day. I love to sing, to study and most of all I love to be alive. I hope you will enjoy reading my thoughts that I share with you.
