First Week of Working From Home, Hudson Valley Hike, ...
Ok so week 1 of working from home has been completed and we're already on day 2 of week 2 now. Made it through last week ok but it did feel like an endless week. I shouldn't complain because at least my job is pretty much set up where I can work from home without many issues. All I need is an internet connection, a phone and my laptop and I am set. I know a lot of people are struggling right now. People who either cannot work from home (hospital staff, doctors, supermarket and other essential staff, ...) It's also crazy the people who get paid minimum wage and need to go out to do their jobs. And the rich people who say things like "Oh you should get a REAL job". Well where would we be without those people right now? The rich people wouldn't be able to get their groceries or get food delivered etc. Ugh.
Alright I won't turn this into a social rant because it's not going to help anything. The weekend was pretty good even though it was a bit weird of course. On Saturday we went for a nice hike/walk in the Hudson Valley. We went to a trail at Poets' Walk Park in Rhinebeck, NY. Really pretty. We of course kept our distance as much as possible from any other people on the trail. After our hike we stopped at Millbrook Vineyard to buy a few bottles of wine. They have a discount on all bottles purchased right now so that was a nice perk as well. Plus it's always good to support the local businesses. We have also been doing take out from some of our favorite local restaurants last week. Some have now decided to stop doing take out though and are closed. I think the take out/delivery business just isn't as profitable unfortunately. I do hope they can survive and open up again when this is all over, whenever that may be.
On Sunday we slept in late and then went to the grocery store and the liquor store to stock up on some things. And then got breakfast take out from one of our local diners. Also got a bottle of OJ and some prosecco so I was able to make mimosas to go along with the breakfast. Then we caught up on some recorded TV.
And well now it's already the new week again. Tuesday morning already. So I better get on with it and log into my work laptop to get started on my day.
