It depends on the cereal. If it has sugar added, then no. But if it doesn't then I usually do. So like Honey Nut Cheerios I do not add sugar to. But regular Cheerios I do.
Have you been keeping up on the COVID-19 news or are you trying to avoid it?
If a news break comes on about Coronavirus, I've been watching it and I don't usually watch the news.
Do you have enough food and supplies to last a while or not?
Does running out of everyday supplies concern you or are you more concerned about running out of medical supplies?
(I'm most worried about running out of our prescription drugs.)
I haven't thought as much about running out of prescription drugs as running out of food but running out of the drugs would be more concerning.
Have you been writing lists of things to buy or not?
I always make a list before going shopping. I sometimes forget it though. Lol
Have you experienced a government mandated shutdown or "stay at home" order due to the COVID-19 virus or is it business as usual in your area? (Our governor issued a mandatory "stay at home" order for non essential workers yesterday.)
Our governor doesn't like the words - Shelter in Place - so she made it a Stay at Home order... Either way it is the same thing.
Which do you do with your time with stay at home - Craft or clean?
Well, so far I've had no time at home because my job is essential. Though there's talk I may end up alternating days with one of the other girls so I may have some days soon. But on the weekends I have been cleaning.
When under a stay at home order do you stay in all the time or do you go out for walks or to get groceries?
We are still allowed to go out for essential outings, such as to the grocery stores, so we've been doing that. We've been going to other stores sometimes and going to our new house sometimes. It looks like work may stop there for the foreseeable future even though we're quite close to being able to move in.
Have you been finding that TV shows you watch get stopped in the middle with news breaks and they don't go back to show the rest, or not?
I don't have tv only amazon and netflix - no news breaks. Being I'm one of the ones immunocompromised I stay home but have been gardening and swinging on our porch swing when it is sunny.
How do you take care of your clutter? Really need to have ideas here. Do you sort it into a box/storage bin or do you throw it out?
We put paper, cardboard and glass into our recycle bin and have a pile near the front door for donating to charity shops.
Are you a tidy person or not? I am in some ways, not others.
Me too, Aussie. In some ways.
Are you doing a good job of social distancing or do you find it challenging?
It is taking me time to get used to social distancing. I'm glad I have a house mate and don't live alone because that would be much harder.
The next person just wants the Coronavirus to be over!
Yes, I do!
Do you believe the Coronavirus is as dangerous as they say or do you believe the flu is just as dangerous if not more so?
I believe the flu is probably more dangerous and widespread than the Coronavirus. There's so much hype that it's hard to tell.
Are you missing having as many hugs as usual or not? I am.
Really missing physical contact hugs - Cyberhugs are just not the same.
Do you like Knit or Crochet? - personally I do both.
I don't do either. I do counted cross stitch and embroidery. My Grandma taught me how to do embroidery and I taught myself to do counted cross stitch.
Have you ever entered your work in a fair or won a prize for your work? (I've won 2 blue and 2 red ribbons at the county fair for my counted cross stitch.)
I haven't entered any but I do have some cross stitches that I could have entered if I'd got around to it.
Are you more logical or creative (or both equally)?
I think I'm probably more creative.
Are you finding yourself staying home more during this pandemic or are you going about your normal routine?
(My state is under a "Stay at Home" order but my job is considered "essential" so I am still working. But other than that I am trying to stay out of public spaces such as grocery stores and dollar stores.)
We are staying home more than we ordinarily would but we are still going to the house I've bought often and taking over boxes and small furniture. We are still allowed to go to grocery stores but we are trying to go when it's not busy and to practise social distancing.
Are you coping okay with all the stress of Coronavirus or not? I think it's really difficult!
I was doing ok until I got laid off today...
House cleaning question - Which do you prefer doing: vacuuming or cleaning kitchen counters?
I'm sorry Gma. I hope it's only temporary and you will be back to work soon.
I prefer cleaning kitchen counters. I love cleaning my whole kitchen with Pine Sol (the lemon one). I love the smell of a clean kitchen when it's all done.
Do you prefer cleaning with a lemon or pine fragrance cleaner? Or something else?
Lemon scent but I prefer a natural cleaning spray so it doesn't make me cough.
Do you have an electric dishwasher or not?
Yes! I couldn't get by without it!
Do you prefer to use a dishwasher or wash dishes by hand?
It's so nice to have a dishwasher and not to have to do them by hand!
Do you spend much time cleaning your house or not?
Yes, I usually find something around the house to clean in my spare time.
Do you prefer to clean a little at a time or do an all at once cleaning, like a spring cleaning?
I prefer to clean a bit at once so it's not as tiring.
Do you cook things on the stove or in the microwave more often?
I cook on stove and the BBQ outside - I warm leftover in microwave.
Do you prefer reading on computer or reading a real book?
In many ways I prefer reading a real book but I spend more time reading online because there are so many things demanding to be read.
Do you read more for fun or for gaining information?
In the last few years, it has been for gaining information rather than fun reads.
Do you read news or other things? I like reading about history and archaeology
I most like reading about psychology and self-help.
Do you still have books from your school days or not?
