    :hello:
    If people spend quality time together, they spend a period of time relaxing or doing things that they both enjoy, and not worrying about work or other responsibilities.

    Leisurely or in haste, she & I cook for each other
    It could be daily at times or almost daily
    Which is possible when both are superannuated.

    while she serve, I eat
    When I serve, she eat
    This too togetherness.

    I scrub stubborn dishes when she clean under running water
    She cleans using liquid cleaner I use scratchpads and metal wires

    We share to clear sink dawn and dusk
    Thanks to pandemic our cook and maid
    Gone on earned leave
    Given farewell to them but we make home and hearth
    Sheen and sparkle

    She watch opera a bore but I sit with her asking questions
    In between make comments carefully
    This is togetherness

    Laundry I take out from machine
    She untangle clothes and make it wrinkle free
    I put her wet clothes on dry line
    As she handover one by one from bucket
    This is togetherness,

    I stand a catalyst she makes special
    I taste a little clicking the tongu
    She delights in it
    That is togetherness

    We sat those days juxtaposed
    In restaurants
    But nowadays we sit face to face
    Delighting in the facial expression of the other
    This is togetherness

    I hear your sigh of relief
    From this togetherness bore
    But in life quality time
    Comes easily when you function as a team
    From twilight to bed.

    After so much togetherness
    Night is calm and quiet
    Fatigued to profound sleep
    Only to wake up at dusk
    To begin hug tight & begin a friendly fight!

    Thanks to corona virus. I can finally spend some quality time at home these days and especially with my H.

    We cook together, clean the home together. Work next to each other at the home office. So chit chatting & progressive professional discussions happen during work time too. Even if we don't chat much, we still stay inside quietly without any outside disturbances. I love this.

    These days we eat together, go out for long walks & shopping together as well.

    We spend a lot of time in the garden. I just sit at the swing & talk while my H does some quality gardening in the evenings.

    At nights we spend family time together with kids.

    All in all our life has been re designed after covid19.
    But not sure how long this happiness will last...
