I spent pretty much the entire day trying something new with no clue if it will work. Theoretically it should but there are several factors that could alter the outcome.Continue reading “It’s a start”
I am finding it very difficult to write this post. It’s easy to say or do the wrong things while having the best of intentions. The PM is taking flack for his 22 second pause. Instragram users who inserted black squares for the day took flack if they failed to follow it up with Black Lives Matter info. So I’ve thought long and hard.Continue reading “What to Say”
I turned the calendar page from May to June. There has been very little to distinguish one month from the next. No work days, no appointments, no sports, no parties, no dessert nights or Scotch tasting parties. It struck me how little I have actually needed a calendar for in the last 3 months.Continue reading “June “bugs””
The gentle notes of the meadowlark drift away, the steady hum of the hot tub again the background noise. I continue onward, section by section, making progress. The sun Continue reading “My Senses”
I saw a hashtag that is perfect for my life right now. It’s also self explanatory.Continue reading “A new hashtag”
There have been tears this week. The pandemic has faded to the background as Canada had faced another terror.Continue reading “#StrongerTogether#TousEnsemble”
It may seem like I am off on a tangent but hang in there and read to the end. Ultimately “the reason” as my little A is fond of saying will become apparent.
They walk down the
I’ve spent 25 minutes, finding it anything but funny, trying to link Continue reading “Wacky Wednesday”
It’s not that complex and it’s not even that hard. Well maybe it’s hard on some levels but at it’s simplest form it’s basic.
Stay the _ _ _ _ home.
We watched The National last night and I am sure that my blood pressure went up when they showed the pictures from the sea wall in Vancouver. The picture below doesn’t even touch how many people we saw walking, biking, hanging out and eating. It’s nuts for the province with one of the highest number of Covid 19 cases. I thought we were smarter than this but maybe I am naive and an optimist.
The example below shows why it’s so bloody important that we stay the _ _ _ _ home. Yet story after story after story of people (all across Canada) who come straight back from travel and are out in stores. Who would have ever thought that retail workers would be on the front line again and again. First getting trampled and yelled at because people are hoarding toilet paper and now with this ignorant behavior of those who don’t seem to care about anyone but themselves.
Stay the _ _ _ _ home. Funerals and weddings are being delayed. So even if it’s +9 and spring is in the air stay home. If you want to catch up with a friend use the phone and call them. Read bedtime stories over video calls if you are missing your grandchildren. Think how fortunate we are that these options exist. During the 1918 Spanish flu epidemic our ancestors didn’t have those luxuries.
So let’s stay home. Fill your time with whatever works for you. Stay connected with family and friends in whatever format works for you. But first and foremost Stay HOME. Please, for all of us.
End of rant. Wouldn’t it be great if this went viral and all of a sudden more people realized how serious this health threat is. Ah yes remember when I said I was an optimist… I’d be very surprised if my small readership wasn’t already 💯 compliment.
Stand apart but stay connected.
PS this isn’t about social shaming it’s about being responsible and committed to the health of mankind
It’s like my universe was trying to tell me something and it just took a while to see it. I started to doubt my inner self as seen
