Current Publishing asked local residents to submit photos and descriptions of ways they are keeping boredom at bay during their self-quarantine. Below are some of the responses:
The Walters family is using this time to foster some kittens. Michelle Walters displays the kittens.
James Zenor recently purchased a cello to learn something new. The self-quarantine has provided him more time to “annoy (his) neighbors with the sweet off-pitch sounds of this wonderful instrument.”
Zenor also runs trails and helps Student Impact with food deliveries.
Korie Pickett is spending more time creating metal work such as stamping and upcycling silverware to create jewelry. She also is a storyteller. Since all of her pop-up events have been canceled, she’s selling her items on hoosierqueen.com and her Instagram @hoosierqueenkp.
KimAnn Schultz is finalizing a business related to her mother’s recent move into a senior-living community and needed to make a stop at the bank. Since the streets were quiet due to the restrictions, she allowed her 16-year-old daughter Hannah to drive them to the bank to get more experience behind the wheel as she works toward her driver’s license. She then allowed her daughter to drive them around the community and down a few bigger streets and tricky intersections for a half hour.
Summer Steenburg and her children, Sophia and Sullivan, are staying active during self-quarantine by doing activities like online art classes, science experiments, bike riding and starting an indoor greenhouse.
