Built a one-pager website today for a small butcher store in the area completely for free using Github pages and Jekyll so people can see their menu online and call for ordering upfront.

We're all doing good. We're following the news and the reports closely. We're staying at home as much as we can - with a very active two-year old little guy who loves running, we did enjoyed a day out today with a long walk along the Rhein river, keeping our social distance. We're managing to work from our "home office", but will be happy when we can go back to our daily routines from before soon again. I've activated Folding@Home on my home machines as a way to "help" fight this virus and washing our hands seventy times a day. I'm also doing more laundries than usual just to keep it all "virus free". Hoping for the best. Stay healthy.

Hey Seb, ik lees je blog! We slaan er ons wel door! Welke film wou je kijken?

The Mickey Mouse Clubhouse show on Disney+ seems like great interactive TV. I see my son actually participating.

So who in Germany is not watching The Mandalorian tonight?

Today I'm in my fourth week of forced working from home-office.

Some moments I seem to think we have it all under control and we're actually managing to combine baby sitting and working at the same time, but then the two-year old in my son resurfaces and he needs attention every 15 seconds.

We love spending time with him, but the combination with a sprint plan deadline is making me a bit short-fused and nervous. I'm keeping my cool however by realizing how lucky we are, compared to many families in the World and especially in Italy.

Still feeling pretty bad how much TV he needs to see to keep him busy. It does seem that he is starting to be able to play on his own for a - little - while longer. He likes the V-Tech MagicBook 3D interactive toy, especially the little 3D animations. He's so clever.

We got him more cars and a garage and the biggest extension set of the Lillabo Ikea train (50 pieces!) - So it's not like he has a shortage in toys, it's just that he's only two.

Week three of forced home office is almost over. Thanks to the electronic baby sitter aka TV we are able to get some work hours in.

Went to the supermarket this morning around 8:20. Weren't many people around. Aldi Süd installed protective screens for their cashiers.

Still a bit of a shortage of pasta and rice, otherwise all food is still plenty there. It did seem that the shop was a little understaffed.

At the DM I had to leave a package of disinfectant swipes, even when it was in a different size, because the cashier said only one package a customer was allowed. I tried to negotiate, but apparently size doesn't matter.

At the bakery they had installed hanging sheets of plexy glass as a protective screen above the counter. Thought it was a smart way to be able to prevent the nice people working there from getting sick.

I'm taking a break from social-media until our society manages to cope with , hopefully that won't be longer than a few weeks more.

Had that dream again where teleportation is a thing within the indieweb community.
