Currently Updating... Please Do Not Turn Off Your Life

I realize that every person on this planet has been affected by COVID-19, even the hermits. The disruption it has caused, to routines and life plans, is universal. But I can only tell you about me. What has this pandemic done to me? Time hasn’t stopped, and the calendar on the wall tells me that […]

Domestic Engineering- The 'Man-Sized' Load

Some of you I realize, have been staying home far more than usual in the last few months. This has led to you either doing, or at least attempting, more domestic tasks than usual. Sheer boredom has led you to say things like, “I’ll do the dusting today,” or “I’ll make the bed,” and ask […]

Who Are These People?

Little hands… Little feet… Little voices… All talking at the same time. No, this is not the start of the new school year; this is my living room this week. The ‘Caravan of Chaos’ has arrived at my door. With a Phase 3 implementation across Western Canada, a Covid-roadtrip is now allowed by the powers […]

Phased Out

,

I think I’m having a reaction to Phase 3. I might just be having a reaction to what appears to be happening in Phase 2 and therefore I am applying it to Phase 3 but I’m definitely having some kind of a reaction. Our area, relative to the rest of the world, has seen little […]

Warning... Relaxing Restrictions Could Lead To Hugging

Spring/Summer in my world has arrived. I have to include both seasons together because where I live, they are both so short in time that they basically comprise only one season, ‘Spummer’. This year cold temperatures have lingered, so doing anything in the yard has been limited. It’s no fun raking up debris from winter, […]

Adapting

We are all making changes to the way we do things and lifestyles are on hold for everyone but hermits. As societies, we are adapting to changes being forced on us on a daily basis. The messages from country to country may differ in specifics but generally, the world has been told to protect itself […]

One Giant Step Backwards

In Canada, as it is around the world, public health officials are leading the fight to keep us safe. They are not offering the cure, but giving us once again, the information we need to avoid getting sick and how to avoid making others sick. It’s nothing new. We were taught about it in school […]

A Decade of Difference

Day one, 2020. 1970 is now half a century ago, and I for one must say, time flies when you’re having fun. I usually write a recap of the year that had just passed but since this is the change in decades, I thought it would be worth looking back at the last decade of […]

The Holiday season is always stressful. I think it is for everyone, even those that don’t work in the retail sector. There is stuff you have to do, and a time limit in which to get it done. The holidays are the same for almost everyone around here. We’re all working the same schedule. We […]

Anatomically Corrected

I have had different injuries throughout my life. Knees, shoulders, arms, hands and my back have all had something or other happen to them. All of these injuries healed over time, with very little residual effects short of a couple of scars. I have been on crutches a couple of times but have never required […]
