Welcome back to my adventures in quarantine! Today, the boredom has begun to set in. After I finished my chores, I wandered my house looking for something to keep me busy, wishing I had taken longer to do the dishes. I ended up making a list of 40 things to do while being quarantined, which I hope will quell your boredom as well as mine. Today’s creative challenge is to make a list of your own. It could be a list of your 10 favorite songs or your favorite foods, it could be a list of things you need to clean or anything you could possibly imagine. Be creative and have fun with your list. You can read mine below. I hope you enjoy! Stay healthy 🙂
