DMC Quarantine Favorites


The past few months have felt a little (or a lot) like Groundhog’s Day. With some form of social distancing in effect for the foreseeable future, we compiled a list of things our contributors have been enjoying to pass the time. (I’ve highlighted a few of my personal choices).

If you’re feeling a little like every day is a repeat of the previous day, check out our quarantine picks and discover some new entertainment!


TV Shows

  • Tiger King – a DMC favorite across the board. As one contributor put it, “I can’t stop – it’s a train wreck!”
  • Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist – such a fun, unique show about a woman who gains the ability to hear the thoughts of others – in song!
  • Little Fires Everywhere
  • Schitt’s Creek
  • Forensic Files



  • Hoopla – if you’re missing the library as much as I am, Hoopla connects to your library card and gives you instant access to a wide variety of audiobooks, e-books, music, and movies.
  • Instagram
  • Shutterfly
  • Tik-Tok
  • Duo
  • Marco Polo
  • Fetch Rewards


  • Anything by Elin Hilderbrand – a DMC favorite author. You really can’t go wrong with any of her titles!
  • Hillbilly Elegy
  • Get Out Of Your Head by Jennie Allen
  • Fancy Nancy– my daughter has recently discovered this adorable series and is crazy over the French obsessed and fabulous Nancy!
  • Pete the Cat – another popular child choice


Take Out Orders


  • Gardening
  • Hand lettering
  • Creating chalk art
