Yes, Backwoodsman, we are in Stratford, Ontario, seat of the Magic Kingdom of Perth County.

The theatre festival normally opens for previews in the second week of April, but not this year; so far, it looks as if the first performance will be on 2 May. Our tickets for Hamlet have therefore gone up in smoke.

Perth County is largely rural, with rich farmland and some ridiculously prosperous livestock operations, especially piggeries. There is also a fair bit of light industry, so we won’t suffer. But the theatre season and the related tourism-based businesses (especially restaurants) generate the revenue that makes Stratford a beautiful and interesting place to live. Without it, things will go south fast.

I'm not as bored as my little dog. He is baffled.

Don't talk to me about websites

Although I used to be a programmer I didn't have to deal with the internet and so I like to do things the easiest way. Then I didn't have to update my website for ages, and changed PC, and lost my software and got some new stuff, and a new host and now I am updating the website and I am having to work out the procedures to re-publish it.

And it is till boring!

(It is the website for my card models "Millimodels".

I actually started fitting new nut and bridge inserts to a guitar that I bought in an Op shop years ago, -and has been lurking and glowering at me since since.
I did more practice on the playable guitar than is usual, too. Almost half an hour!
Odd to see people carefully sterilising trolly-handles.

Not bored yet, nor have I started on the big house clear-out that beckons after 33 years in the same house, and waiting for the ideal time to do it! As for that pilke of books I'm going to read...sometime! Songs and tunes to write and learn...
My diary has just totally emptied out: last Friday, practising for a gig we were going to do today: yesterday, gig cancelled and venue closed!
Last Friday, also went to a singing session (approx 12-14 people there)and said "this might be the last for a while" - it was! And Friday 13th, my birthday too.
Now at home in "self isolation" or at least, "avoiding social contact": one of the hardest things is being told by my daughter that they don't want us to keep doing our regular childminding of our grandchildren, as they fear for our health (both being in our 70s): their decision, not ours.

Our proposed Village Yard Sale has now been cancelled I see, so that's another little project scotched. I was going to pass some time sorting out stuff to sell, but no need now.
My sister sent an email to say all churches in Scotland are closed, all her bridge clubs too, and the table tennis club where she played for her team has cancelled all matches.
I can always find academic things with which to occupy my mind, but we all need human company, it's only natural.
Keep a-troshing everybody!

This is the time when we introverts come into our own. You should see the smug look on my face right now. (Finally, we're being left in peace!).

”People are still walking their dogs in Stratford”

Is that Stratford ON, Charmion? I ask because my wife’s brother lives in Burlington ON and, when we were there visiting in 2015, we saw ‘Henry V’ at the Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford ON. A very nice town.

*I* like Picard but it is a drama, not an action show. One bitty space battle in the 1st 6 episodes. You have to love Jean-Luc to like Picard, I think, but I do, so ça va.

I've encouraged a local online gardening website to run a special series for newbies on how-to start a very small garden with very few supplies (don't run out and do a lot of shopping - you can do much of the prep with just a shovel or spade fork). Stuck at home? Then it would be nice, at the end of all of this, to have people discover the joy of home-grown vegetables (and use easily available things like dish soap and bicarbonate of soda for pest and disease control). Most garden centers are largely tarp-covered open areas, so social distance is easy to maintain, for the trip to get bedding plants and some organic fertilizer.

Himself is antsy already, although he is more concerned than I am. His daily routine of court, coffee shop, gym, and happy contemplation of perhaps a nice dinner out has come to a grinding halt.

Me, not so much. I am more capable of diving into a hole and pulling it in after me. But it's different if I have to. Today, I'm looking around the house and thinking, I would so prefer to be walking downtown for [choose your excuse] instead of not vacuuming the cat-hair-clotted carpet.

People are still walking their dogs in Stratford, so social interaction is still possible at leash-length distances, but church and choir practice are off, restaurants and coffee shops are closed, the cinema and the theatres are dark, the farmers' market is down, and going to the supermarket is strictly for emergencies like running out of milk.

I have a jeezly great editorial project under way, and Himself is writing a paper for his doctorate program. We have work that we can do at home.

Lucky us.

I know just what you mean Mrrzy. I can 'entertain' myself for the eight hours my husband is at work (1pm until 9pm) doing various little jobs around the house, but I do like people, and chatting. (Husband calls me Mrs Yap-Yap) I've just been sitting on the bench in front of our house (rather a cold wind, but bright sunshine) and chatted to a courier delivering a parcel next door, and a nice neighbour. But folk are busy, and I do get a bit tired toiling away with housework.
Ah well. This too shall pass. (No idea when though!)

I am reminded of that great scene in M*A*S*H where Hawkeye is conjugating being bored...

I am not getting depressed, which is rather amazing, but I have binge-read the entire Redwall series and binge-watched Picard, and I am sooooo booooooored.

All my group therapies, in which I include qi gang, are canceled. All my meetups are canceled. All my friends and relations are entertaining themselves somehow, but I want peeeeeeeeeople!
