    I’ve been sheltered in place for a few weeks now working away in my shop with the music on. I’m not getting bugged by anyone and I’m getting a lot of stuff done. I still have a lot of work booked and plenty to do.
    It’s actually quite nice.

    My job is considered essential, so I'm still pulling the same shifts if not more. I was hoping to have a few days to give some much needed attention to projects around my house...but oh well.

    Will post pics as projects progress. I have some wood carvings that need to get off the bench , an antique truck that needs lots of attention, and a couple of bird houses to be hung

    Just working. Landed overseas the day before travel was barred by my organization. Over a dozen others coming out for the project didn't make it in time. Currently no virus in the country, borders closed, so just lots and lots of work. 12-17 hour days, 7 days a week for a couple weeks now. Getting close to wrapping up the work, now it's become questionable whether any of us here will be able to get home on time/anytime soon. Everyone in the states are Tele-commuting or taking time off.

    If you can afford the Macallan, why buy Glenlivet. Both of them are good straight or on the rocks, but one of them is MUUUCCCCHHHH Smoother.

    I'm still going to work ("essential") and I'm kind of a homebody, so aside from no diving plans, nothing much has changed for me. I am not entirely sure whether we are allowed to shore dive currently in So Cal. I think some folks are still going out, but I'm not at this point. I'm still getting exposed to a lot of people at work so I'm trying to be very strict with my personal time. Then again, I'm an only child / introvert / bookworm, so I don't get bored easily. I think it would be harder if we lost electricity / internet. But I know that the isolation / stay home thing is VERY hard for some people and they are already getting stir crazy.

    Might try to clean up some glass bottles and abalone shells this weekend. If anyone has any tips, I'm all ears.

    What would that be in toilet rolls?

    My office is shut until 31 March when we'll do a re-evaluation of the situation here in UAE. Until then all my staff are working from home.

    Went diving yesterday and next weekend might be shore diving only as most dive ops are being temporarily closed due to COVID-19 precautions.

    Some home servicing and cleaning of gear etc., will be increased.

    Spending more time on SB. Had an accident so I have been nursing my leg. Lots of ice usage and elevation. Could use some of that Glenlivet and Macallan. I do more than margaritas. Plan on getting fitter and losing some weight. 50# would be nice.
