Spring has sprung on the East Coast, but with the flowers and sunshine comes some chilly breezes. But fear not, Dorinda Medley is prepared. The Real Housewives of New York City mama has been self-quarantining during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic for weeks now, hunkering down at the newly-renovated Blue Stone Manor. Despite social distancing, Dorinda has been keeping very busy at home cooking, cleaning — she’s still using the rotary iron her late husband, Richard, bought her 20 years ago! — and doing Dorobics, too, of course.

Blue Stone Manor offers loads of beautiful rooms and nooks to relax in, and Dorinda recently shared a peek at one of the estate’s patios on her Instagram Stories.

What a beautiful spot!
