    downtime activity during the shutdowns?

    didnt see a thread on what peeps are doing during all the downtime. I had already scheduled vacation for a week this past week.

    Two of sisters were coming to town to visit mom, but one and husband stayed home on doctors recommendation. other came and we stayed at mom's house all week.

    did some jobs around house, new flooring in dining room and kitchen, new ceiling and lights put up in entrance area. replaced post on front porch.

    also played board games,cards, eat and did a number of jigsaw puzzles. I had a bunch of puzzles, so borrowed some to sister's inlaws to do. mom and sister passed on the 2500 pc I had.

    Updating the Electrical in the house, been pulling 15 amp Receptacles, and putting in 20 amp on the twenty amp circuits. Also I have been installing ARC Flash Receptacles on the bedrooms lead Receptacles. Installing Receptacles with USB Ports, to get rid of the power strips, and wall worts. I can’t Paint right now, with my spring allergies kicking, I can’t take the paint fumes.

    Getting a lot of fishing in, got my police scanner set up to listen to nearby hospitals and FD, and I may break out the fly vice and practice fly tying which I haven’t done in years.

    Fishing, golfing, shooting, smoking (just did an all day smoke on a brisket yesterday), bicycling, walking the doggies. And since my wife works in healthcare and has been busier than a one-armed man with crabs, I've also been doing a lot of the household chores.
