Writing

From 2019 to 2020, because of the corona virus, I have been in quarantine for more than 2 months. COVID -19 has many symptoms like fever, cough and breathing problem. It broke out in Wuhan and spread to other cities fast. Every person had to keep staying at home in China. This Chinese New Year was such a special and difficulty holiday. During those days, we saw the reports about COVID-19 every day, we felt worry and nervous. My sister and I watched a TV show, it told about five stars involved in army to train dogs for police. That was a warm program, the dogs and stars finished different tasks together, they comforted each other but the stars had to leave them, that was a sad moment, my sister and I was deeply moved and both of us like the springer spaniel cause they are cute, smart and considerate.

Now I am in Shanghai, I haven’t go out not only because of the COVID-19, but also because of that I like to stay at home. I grew some plants like mint, rosemary, sunflower and coriander. I like the air fill with fresh scent. The first thing I do in the morning is to smell mint. Yesterday my sunflower seeds sprouted, that was a supper surprise for me! Of course that’s a happiness day for me !
