Turn everything off, except a good playlist. Open the windows. Sit outside. Enjoy the peace of doing nothing. At this point, it's probably the safest thing that we can do. It's much safer to stay home and nap in the sun on the porch than go anywhere, so don't go anywhere. Not even to go fishing. It might have to wait a few weeks. That may be over-cautious. When it comes to global pandemics, I'll take the safe route. I still want to have plenty of time to do stupid things with my friends all summer long after this is all over and we can go outside. At least, let's hope so.
Sleeping in is a waste of daylight. Do what you love––go fishing.
