Red face Quarantine Week #1

Last week or two, I've been working on Easter Items, in hopes of selling them. The yellow and pink tulips (below) didn't last but a minute on the shelf. Well, when our illustrious so-called governor, Queen Whit-b*tch called for the shutdown of our state, I went from working Monday & Friday with Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from home, to working all week remotely. Eh - not complaining. I wanted time off, just not this way...

Being in Facilities, I take calls and work orders (on line) to have work done around campus. Well, no one is on campus needless to say, there's no work orders! I'm still responsible for the payroll of my skilled trades guys, and other small tasks, so I go through the motions of checking our work order system, and when it's empty, oh well.... I go through and take care of the hours for my guys.

Anyway, so the week before our Great Quarantine, I showed you guys the plastic egg bunnies, I ended up making a smaller one to hold a Cadbury Egg for a co-worker, and a couple tulips that would hold the plastic eggs. (I only have 50 eggs left to make something to hold them.... UGH lol)

While I was making/cutting the flowers, I put Ken to task of starting some of the storage/organizing that I've been impatiently wanting forever. The first one was part one of the clamp storage. (Kept him busy for at least little bit...)

Finally, this past week (started Tuesday or Wednesday) I started the yard decorations for our place. I found the idea on Pinterest (damn that site!) and got all the pieces done and put in the yard today. The smallest of the eggs was supposed to be part of another decoration, but it turned out to be too small, so Ken through a metal stake in it, and put it out to the yard. *shrug*

What will Week #2 bring? I guess we'll find out. Ken wants to start on the Summer projects that we want to make to sell (if we ever get out of this quarantine). I still have Easter items I want to make, but Ken is anxious to get moving forward, so I guess I'll do them in between what he wants to get done. I have a couple I'm still in the middle of doing (needs painting/faces, etc) but for the most part I've at least cut all my Easter stuff.

Hope everyone is healthy; keep safe, busy, and stay well.

Not really, but thanks. My signs aren't creating any business right now, so figured I would stretch my blades/patterns a bit.

No one over 70 is allowed to leave home except for essential matters.

Only on 2nd week and I think cabin fever is going to get me before Corvid19....

Our entire state is quarantined to home except for essential matters (food, etc) We can go outside, but no unnecessary travel allowed.

Talk to me after a month at home James. I get to work at least, but my wife is BORED!
If she had the skills Barb does I'd let her loose in the garage just to give her something to do!

Nice work Barb, keep going, it's great to see what you'll pull out of the hat next

I like the little rabbit disappearing under ground.The paint on the eggs is beautiful (the ones you painted) & the quarantine laws are awful but I think we're gonna beat this VD (virus disease. JamesJ
