After I read this tweet from Wendy Macnaughton last night, I began to realize that my daily quarantine schedule is about to get very full.
The weekend was leisurely–just Erik Hinton’s excellent one-hour yoga class, taught from his NYC apartment living room, at 3 pm MST. (Join him–and me!–for class today at 5 pm EST). I was already overwhelmed by the generosity of a yoga teacher offering a free class every afternoon for all of us at home. (And if you are not yet staying home, please please stay home! I shared a couple of good articles about the need for this in my post yesterday, and here’s another one, written by 16 leading health experts. The only way to contain this is to stay home: no play dates, no sleepovers, no book clubs, no dinners out.)
And then I found out there’s a whole lot more to come.
Illustrator and author Wendy McNaughton is offering that 11:00 a.m. MST drawing class. Also at 11:00 a.m. MST, Oliver Jeffers reads a story. Mac Barnett reads a story at 12:00 pm MST–the same time that Jarrett Krosoczka offers a drawing lesson.
At 1:00 pm MST, I have yet another conflict: Home Safari with the Cincinnati Zoo or professional development with Kylene Beers. (I’m pretty sure that Fiona the hippo is going to win out here.)
At 3:00 pm, I need to be ready for yoga with Erik.
Somewhere during my day, I have to squeeze in Notebook Time with Amy Ludwig VanDerwater and the Metropolitan Opera’s Nightly Met Opera Stream. (I know very little about opera–but now’s my time to learn!). Not to mention my own regularly scheduled reading and writing, teaching my own classes, and teaching my son!
Who would have guessed that I’d need Hermione’s time turner to manage my quarantine schedule?
