Social Distancing Ideas

We are all in an odd place.  It is hard to know how to feel in these uncertain times.

I am an avid traveler but also a homebody.  I have no problem being home with little to do. However, I love a trip to the barn for some equine therapy.  

I have always had a knack for wasting time.

Others are already feeling board in the staying home part of social distancing.

The donkeys don’t care for the distancing.
