    1. Hi Mr. Ken! Thank you, we are having a much better time than we expected! It’s been really fun to hang out at home for a while. :) Thanks for your comment!


  1. This is a great list! Being on quarantine has been so weird, but it does give us a chance to do constructive things and things we normally cannot do! Lately, I have been memorizing Scripture, reading (I can finally read for fun!), blogging more consistently, catching up with friends via text and video chat, and I soon plan to take some photos. :D


    1. Thank you!
      I totally agree – it’s so nice to be able to do things that you’re normally too busy to do. :)
      That’s awesome! It’s great that you’re finding ways to stay busy. What have you been reading?

      1. Currently, I am almost done with reading “Fever 1793.” It is such a good Historical fiction!!! I definetly recommend it! After I finish that, I plan to read “Pride and Prejudice,” “To Kill a Mockingbird,” and “The Watcher.” I found out that my library allows you to borrow books digitally! So, when I finish reading those physical books, I plan to “borrow,” “Keeper of the Lost Cities” (all 8 books!), “Little Women,” all of “The Chronicles of Narnia” books, and whatever else I find. :D Have you read any good books lately?


      2. WOW! That’s awesome, Heaven! I just recently read Pride and Prejudice and it’s sooo good!! To Kill A Mockingbird is great, too!
        I’m reading “The Screwtape Letters” by C.S. Lewis for school right now, and it’s very interesting! I also recently read “Animal Farm” by George Orwell, and it was excellent! I’d definitely recommend both of those! :)

      3. Awesome!!! I cannot wait to read them now! Oh my goodness, I actually have to read “Animal Farm” for English soon. It sounds quite interesting, so I am looking forward to reading it! I am going to have to check out C.S. Lewis’ book. I enjoy his writing! :)


  2. I’ve mostly been reading a lot. This is an impressive list!
    Have you read any good books lately?
    Also, there’s this thing called a bear hunt, and I think it’s incredibly cool. Basically you put a teddy bear in a window for little kids to find. Obviously I’m participating because I run a Build a Bear blog, but I think everyone who can should participate!


    1. Reading is a fantastic way to pass the time, isn’t it? :P Hmmm, I’m reading “The Screwtape Letters” by C.S. Lewis for school right now, and it’s pretty interesting! I also recently read “Animal Farm” by George Orwell (also for school), and it was FANTASTIC! It’s a satire about the Russian Revolution, but it can apply to any kind of oppressive government. I’d highly recommend both of those books if you’re looking for an interesting read! :)
      Oh yes I’ve heard of that! Our neighborhood is doing something like that except with Easter Eggs instead of bears. So fun!

  3. Love this list! Especially the idea of making a short film 🍿and I am mad about Mario kart. I’ve definitely been reading a lot more and I’ve started meditating too ✨ Great post! Take care 💕


    1. Yes, short films are the BEST! And Mario Kart is super addicting, I have to keep an eye on the time when I play that game XD That’s great! I’m glad you’re finding ways to stay busy!
      You, too! Hope you’re staying safe and healthy! :)
