    Lockdown is soooo boring!
    I have washing to do, dishes to put away, a sewing machine to fix, a bike to fix, tools to put away, a bit of cleaning to do and I can't muster any enthusiasm for any of it!
    I might have a nap!

    Buy a Dremel with carving set, find interesting rocks, carve faces into them, leave them in interesting places.

    Watch the myths grow.

    We are not on lockdown in Idaho but I stay home for the most part because the wife and I both are high risk. I bought myself a Casio keyboard to mess with and I gotta admit, I'm having a great time learning it.
    I plan on getting a nice Yamaha for something when I can prove to myself I'm going to stick with it.

    Write a book on something you happen to be good at. Learn how to create an e-book. Learn how to get it on all distribution channels (actually, the easy bit). Look forward to being able to write 'author' as your occupation when you renew your passport. Realise you have no use for your passport right now. Make a cup of tea.

    Repeat until lockdown over.

    I find that the menial tasks go a lot better if you whip the boombox out and play some CD's. Afterwards..get the guitar out and play some riffs.

    I feed a bunch of Bluejays almost daily. I pitch some walnuts out the kitchen window, and watch them chow down.
