Ringleader Fine Jewellers and the Impact of Covid-19
Today is Tuesday, March 24, 2020. One of the many days we will remember this year. It marks the last day we can legally be open, as stated by the Ontario Provincial Government. We, as all other non-essential service establishments, have been instructed to close until a further date when it will be safe for all. Let’s all stay home to battle and control this deadly virus. Enjoy the time with your family.
Now is the perfect opportunity to all those things around the house that you put on your to do list. I personally, have started cleaning and purging. You know, all those cupboards, drawers and rooms you look at and say, “One day when I have time”. Well, now is the perfect moment. It will help pass the time, give a great sense of accomplishment, increase your organization and you might even find that item you had misplaced. If you are planning on doing some spring cleaning, don’t forget to sort through your jewellery as well. Take a look. One pile should be for appraisals that need to be updated. A second should be for cleaning and repairs. And the last might be for scrap gold to cash out on or to be used to lower the cost of a new remodeling.
Exercise and T.V. Definite essential at this critical time. Not only does exercise benefit physically, but mentally as well. Let’s face it. We all need to be kept informed, but watching too much news right now can be downright depressing. Limit your T.V. watching and do some exercise. Yes the gyms are all closed, but instructors are posting workouts on Instagram. Or go for a walk, but remember social distancing, when seeing others outside on your stroll. Since watching sports is nonexistent right now, we came a little late to the party but have been binge watching shows. Right now, we are engrossed in Big Little Lies.
Cooking and Baking are another one of my favorite things to do when I have the time. So what’s stopping you? My daughter said that a lot of her friends are into baking bread right now. I completely understand. It takes time. And yes, we have lots of it. We have the opportunity to make meals and freeze them so we are prepared when life gets back to normal. Pinterest is a great resource for scouting out a new recipes. Personally, I love everything from halfbakedharvest.com. I dare you to try making some of her pretzel recipes. They are amazing. If baking is more of your comfort level and you are looking for healthy recipes, check out Rachel Mansfield. She focuses on a paleo/gluten free diet. I recently bought her cookbook, just the good stuff, and have been scouting out which recipe I want to try first.
Trying to stay sane and be productive are my short term goals while being isolated at home. I look forward to the time when this is over, life goes back to normal, or maybe a new normal, or maybe a new normal and we can reminisce about what we did to pass the time while being couped up in our home. And FYI, if your hands are dry and cracked, order online from Kiehis.ca the ultimate strength hand salve. It is one of their most popular items and a necessity right now.
