Days since quarantine: 4 So we survived the quarantine. Life “outside” quarantine is a mix of what used to be prior to my trip to the US and what was during the quarantine. Nothing much to do, but at least I don’t have to do nothing confined in the 4 walls of the house.
Days left in quarantine: 0 The last day of quarantine has finally come! I can’t tell you how happy I am that I will be able to go out tomorrow morning and have a coffee in the backyard.
Days left in quarantine: 1 I won’t lie, it’s been a rough patch being locked up in the house. Yesterday was not a good day for me. At the end of the day, I felt like I didn’t want to do anything. As a consequence, I ended up playing the VR set until it was […]
Days left in quarantine: 2 I have been so focused on getting through quarantine that I thought little about the impact of the measures our government has been taking to flatten the infection curve. I was always aware that most of the places will be closed and I will struggle to do anything too creative. […]
Days left in quarantine: 3 So, the new computer arrived with the VR set. What can I say but: it’s awesome.
Days left in quarantine: 4 We’ve been isolated in this house for 10 days now and I’m running out of ideas of what to photograph. I guess that’s the beauty of projects like these, we have to reinvent it.
Days left in quarantine: 5 For the past week, I’ve been working and photographing. Today, I decided to do things differently: I was going to have a more relaxed day.
Days left in quarantine: 6 Yesterday we went to the Royal Melbourne Hospital to get tested for COVID-19. We got tested because between Dean and myself, we had a number of symptoms for the virus.
Days left in quarantine: 7 Today marks the half way mark of our quarantine. Dean and I have had a few arguments that are the result of the lack of space for both of us to have “me time”, but all-in-all we are keeping it together.
Days left in quarantine: 8 One of the things we don’t think about is the garbage. Until you are in quarantine, you go about your business and when the bin gets full, you throw it in the municipal collection bin (outside). Well, when you share a backyard with a 86 year old lady (Dean’s lovely […]
Days left in quarantine: 9 In the US, we had a fair bit of Mexican/Tex-Mex food. The food has a lot of rice and beans in it. Rice and beans are also a staple in Brazil, and recently (before the trip) I had started making rice and beans as part of my dinners. With the […]
Days left in quarantine: 10 Today is the first day back to work since I have been in quarantine. Dean will be working from home as well. Neither of us are sure what it means for him to work from home, considering he works in retail.
Yesterday, my mother-in-law had dropped off food for me to assemble for my birthday dinner. So I assembled the Lobster Thermidor and we had it with Champagne for the quarantined celebratory dinner. I also tidied up the kitchen since Dean’s foot is broken and he should avoid putting any weight on it at all costs.
Today was the first full day under quarantine. We still have not had the time (or space) to unpack from our botched trip to Florida.
