Starting now, I have decided to blog both in French and in English so that I can practice more written French and not lose this skill during these times of non-exposure to written French.
Dès maintenant, j’ai decidé de faire mon blog en Français et en Anglais en même temps pour que je puisse pratiquer mon Français à l’écrit et pour que je ne perde pas cette compétencependant cette période où mon occasion d’ecrire en Francais est bien limité.
What have you all been doing these days? As for me, since lockdown has ended here in our region in France, I have been able to visit some nice places close by. We are still limited to the distance we can travel, though.
Qu’avez-vous fait pendant ce temps? Moi, depuis la fin de la confinement ici dans notre région en France, j’ai visité quelques beaux endroits aux alentours. On peux déjà se deplacer mais la distance est encore limité.
It’s been almost two months since home quarantine started. Here in France, everybody’s going to be let out on 11th May. Not me, though. I’m not planning on going out there yet. I think it’s going to be crazeee!!!
What have people been doing during this time?
For some like myself, I continued to work from home. It was challenging at times because of the additional work of my daughter’s home schooling, and house cleaning, which was usually handled by a hired cleaner.
We’ve obviously been missing out on a lot this year. Half of the year is almost over, and nothing much happened… except maybe set some small (or big) personal improvement goals.
Disclaimer: This post is not guaranteed to make any sense. Just like what’s happening in the world nowadays.
It’s been two weeks since the lockdown on the entire country has been announced. The European Union has closed its borders to all other countries, and individual countries have closed their borders on countries with CovId-19 cases.
Honestly, I thought at first that I would be living my introverted self’s dream because of this lockdown. For me it meant more work from home, no more kissing the people in the office every day for greeting, and social distancing of at least one meter from the next person all the time! Wow! My wildest dream ever, coming into reality.
It’s been a year since my friends and I have created this small group that meets once a month to paint in watercolor. Our group meet just mostly consists of following some tutorials on youtube or a book, and then of course, as with all Filipino gatherings, sharing some food over merienda / gouter / snack.
Went to Keukenhof with a friend mid-April during the Tulip Season. I also tried to do some painting plein air, but the madding crowd rendered the act impossible. Anyway, more of the story on the travel blog.
I can’t believe it’s already been a year since I’ve ventured into watercolor painting. With the help of supportive group of friends and my family for inspiration, I am really quite happy with the improvements I’ve made over the course of a year…
