What are you doing at the time of the lockdown?

What are your plans during lockdown of your property? 

Well, since our guesthouse is small, we're planning of doing some small renovations. 

And at the meantime going through all the admin, so it's all ready for the accountant. 

I can't see us getting many more bookings before June now. 

Wintertime in the Southern Hemisphere anyway soon. 


Wishing you all the best, wisdom and blessings. 

Stay tuned.

Hi Maria, 

It is an unexpected turn for our business and our lives. 

May we use it wisely by putting our thinking cap on how to change. 

(space-for whom etc. ) 

Keep in touch to see what's happening around us, and to finetune our new lives. 

Wishing you strength and inspiration. And yes, trying to stay healthy and safe. I am much by myself. But have the garden / music / sewing activities/ Photography and the internet, Yay. 

I just saw an online church service - no congregation, but two musicians, with interview and tips and prayer. Was really good! 

What I miss the most is the people not coming. It's so quiet. Hope we will go back to stage I  now in stage II .....

Many blessings, 

Praying for you too. For protection and health physically, mentally and spiritually. XX

... in all its solitude
Thoughts of the time given us to wait ...
Just the thought of you and I completely forget
My everyday duties, which are shared with others
I float quite blissfully in sweet happiness
I enjoy the full swing
And probably silly, it's that piece
But for me, this is exactly all.
The one idea of you, the longing for the scent of you
You hardly know about the page until you are with me
I see your face in every flower
Your eye in stars on the sphere of heaven
It's just the thought of it
The mere thought of you, my dear customers....I will open again, I never give up.

Thank you for sharing what is everyone doing!

I have more time to pray and meditate in the morning ( vs. I used to always get up and start cleaning or serving :)

Now, I am cleaning garage, found whole bid box of new towels in the garage,  since day I moved here I didn't have time to find even my clothes and beddings, towels. I just purchased all new  fast.

A week ago, I ordered all new bedding in the white. I have one room in blue and always wanted white. So, I am doing this and will shot a new pictures. 

I just realized that people, couples, they can not get together. If they do, they can order food to pick up in the restaurants and no places to eat. 

I am thinking to offer my beautiful cozy sitting areas in my backyard for the groups of no more than 3-4 and provide hand sanitizers and gloves and paper plates and utensils.I have the golf putting green and bocci ball they can play in my property ( only outdoor) and tables to eat.

I just not sure how to advertise it. If I would have a date or get together with GF or 2 friends, I would be very happy  with this safe option. 

Any ideas? 

Best healthy wishes to ALL, Marita
