How has your week been? I truly hope everyone is being as safe as they can possibly be. The news this week has been horrific … but we’re keeping on keeping on as they say. So in that spirit, here’s what I checked out on the interwebz this week – what to read, watch, cook, and do at home.
ONE+ The Social Distance Mega List of What to Read: Lists of Lists has you covered with reading recommendations for … ever!
TWO+ But just in case you need more check out this Massive List of End-of-Days Books to Read During the Pandemic and Eight Spring Horror Titles To Scare Your (Winter) Socks Off.

FOUR+ Or maybe these 33 of the Best Book Podcasts for All Genres might be more your thing.

To Organize & Be Productive
TWELVE+ I watched 15 Tiny Ways to Get Your Life Together (Youtube) earlier this week and was reminded about using WD-40 for squeaky doors. I thought ALL the doors in our house have been squeaky since we moved in 3 years ago. Made my husband do it a few days ago – no more squeak!
THIRTEEN+ I already use a few of these 13 Simple Tasks You Can Do to Make Life Easier – and they really do make life just a little bit less chaotic.
FOURTEEN+ 41 Best Apps to Keep you Busy FOREVER in 2020 … I’m still going through the list. Any apps you’d recommend?

SIXTEEN+ Here’s my Work Planner Setup for 2020
SEVENTEEN+ A Spring Home Maintenance To-Do List … timely reminder of things to do especially now that many of us are home more.
EIGHTEEN+ I’m finally going to try my hand at a small vegetable garden this year, so The ten best things to plant in April is a nice resource – I’m doing lettuce and carrots.
NINETEEN+ Need some home workouts – Best At-Home Workouts To Try During The Quarantine and How to Stay in Shape Without Leaving the House have got you covered.
TWENTY+ Strava exercise challenges are also away to keep the exercise motivation going – I’ve joined a few for April.
TWENTY-ONE+ I’ve switched to monthly meal planning to reduce the number of times we go to the supermarket, and after being inspired by Kim’s How I Meal Plan for An Entire Year All At Once. A few new recipes on next month’s list came from 23 Pantry Recipes for when you don’t want to (or can’t) Leave your House.
TWENTY-TWO+ Also bookmarked Healthy Pantry and Freezer-Friendly Recipes to try some of these recipes later.
TWENTY-THREE+ – March Favorites
