We decorated a window with a rainbow today inspired by all the rainbows Ive seen on social media. Apparently the idea started in Italy a way for kids to connect with each other while play dates are put on hold for the time being. Families in the US UK and others have joined and so have we here in Have you seen any rainbows in your neighborhood?#coronacronicals #inlovewithzug #aussieinswitzerland
@inlovewithzug Is trying to motivate all of us to #stayhome and asking people to share a photo of where they are working at home. Today for me it was on our balcony in the sunshine editing some photos and writing up this Fridays newsletter. Want to share yours? Make sure you tag @inlovewithzug and me too so I can pop by and say a virtual hi! #inlovewithzug
Shadow play on our daily jog to pick up her Kindergarten task of the day. This sunshine is making it hard to remember there is a horrible virus spreading through our communities but its so important to stay at home and if you do go out for some fresh air to do so on your own or with your immediate family only. Hope you all had a good day all things considering
Day 2 and we are all surviving quite well. Slow morning (yay!) followed by the excitement of discoing the first day of school work. I am sure this motivation will slowly wane but now Im enjoying it. We did some kids yoga made a sour dough starter and the kids made a chalk road for their bikes. There was device time too a reward from 5-6pm especially for the older two who need to keep in contact with their friends. I even got outside and swept 3/4 of the balcony the rest I will do tomorrow…
Wow life is changing at every hour it feels like. Today its been chats with school and music teachers with our new normal will look like and now the Swiss Government has closed from midnight till April 19th restaurants bars cinemas swimming pools hairdressers wellness and any other non- essential shops. We are in Ausserordentliche times. #coronadiaries
Sunshine and social distancing achieved luckily this is (almost) in our backyard. Reality is les sunny but we are making the best of things. Family meeting done Ive got a flexible schedule ready to go and desks are all ready for the school work to come in. I am also thinking of starting my own photography project during this whole staying at home thing. Got a couple of ideas but nothing set in stone yet.

Day 4 of being stuck inside with this one and her fever and I am ready for winter to be over. She had little pockets of time where she feels ok (thank you paracetamol) before the fever returns where weve played games of TschauSepp and colored. This morning I was wondering if the fever will ever go away but this afternoon she was almost her old self again. Fingers crossed.
