what can one do ?

this classic editor is so nice to use, i want to write a post just so i can use it. i begin to appreciate it so much, after using the new editor , that it makes me happy to be able to use it, while i can, and am taking every chance i get to write even though i dont really have anything new to write. haha.

simon is cooking risotto, and that is something he seems to like cooking a lot nowadays. its quite nice, though it might not be like the risotto that the italians do. i have not eaten the real thing so i cannot say how authentic his is. but it is still very nice, which just goes to show you dont have to follow the real thing to make a nice tasty dish out of it.

  i read in a blog i follow that the person is learning new things. so that might be a way of whiling the hours in lockdown. it seems you can go onto free online courses, or do things like paint, or draw, and then you can post it on your blog and let others see what u have achieved or not as the case may be. in fact, i read elsewhere that there are some people who use zoom to make a live drawing class so it can be all online and people can keep their distance whilst enjoying a group activity. 

it sounds like a good idea. though it is not for me, because i am too lazy. also, i dont mind not doing anything. to me that is bliss. 


in the past, we take pictures, it is easy to do and that can fill up our posts, and give us new things to post everyday. but now we are in lockdown, we cant go out and about to take pictures. and our flats may be too untidy to take pictures of and show in the blog.

oh, i just remembered, we can take pictures of the meals we cook, and that reminds me i can take a pic of what simon is cooking to post here. i could do it, except i went and mixed his risotto with some previous fried rice i had , so i could not take a picture of that as it is not really his risotto anymore.

his risotto is delicious, but i did not want to take so much of it that there is very little left for him to eat later. that is why i bulked it out with my left over fried rice, so i can feel full. 

but learning new things is something i might think about, if ever i feel like doing something.

making a hobby out of film watching might be another thing to do. i am afraid my imagination fails me, i cannot think of anything else to suggest people do , to while away these long hours of time ahead of us.

    A lot of this stuff is free, which is also encouraging people to sign on for courses and meet ups and such. Makes it hard if you want to sell something online because people are now expecting it to be free.

    people can still sell stuff, i read of someone making face masks and making eye catching decorations on it, and selling that online with their blog.
    and the live drawing classes, someone is charging £5 to join.
    looking at all those free courses, i come to the conclusion that photography is a great one to do. and people can learn on the job as it were, and it provides a record and nice things to post on their blogs. though photos take up a lot of room. i mean in GBytes, and if they have a wordpress blog, they only get 6G free. even for me, who seldom post pics, i have allready used up half of that. i started this blog in oct 2012. i might have to reduce the size of my pictures.
