JSP Visual Week In Review ~ 04.18.20

Visual Week In Review_041820

Another extremely busy week for me that just flew by.  My day job – external digital communications for a pharma company trying to find a vaccine – has not slowed down in any way.

Most days, I’m awash in social media content, website wireframes, scheduling, planning, editing, and working with some of my colleagues around the world.

And that’s just in my upstairs office nook. When I come downstairs, it’s stepping into the spin of daily family life in our home.

My kids had spring break this week so no home schooling  so there various points of walks around the block with my dog and my kids, checking in, see what’s happening, starting dinner, doing the daily NY Times mini crossword puzzle (digital edition, my wife and I compete to see who can finish it faster).

After dinner it’s usually a lengthy game of catch with my boys, another walk around the block (once around is 1/2 mile) with Bo, then trying to wind everyone down.

And then a couple of hours of TV/video/reading before sacking out to do it all again.

To be honest, not much is too different than when weren’t in pandemic mode. Much of the hum of our life is very much the same.

It’s when we step outside our neighborhood for that weekly visit to the store that you notice the difference.

We’ve been keeping busy enough. Our house, at least, is not going stir crazy. We are fortunate to have a decent size house with plenty of yard space. We’re also fortunate to have our own woods and hiking trails across from our house, open space not governed by the state or county, so it’s not close.

While I certainly look forward to when I can get in the pit again at a show in Asbury Park, we’re not doing to badly as is.

How about you? How are you doing?


What I Watched This Week: Parasite (Not bad. But not Oscar Movie Of The Year worthy in my opinion.

 What I Read This Week: I finished The Man In The Brown Suit and started The First Deadly Sin. Also reading Chandler’s Farewell, My Lovely. Man, he can write.
