June 1, 2021

What a year 2021 has turned out to be! Yesterday it was announced that here we were into our 473rd day of COVID precautions. Although there has been lots of "downs" for many of us I am learning to focus on the good things in my life. I have a loving family, a safe and warm home, plenty of healthy food available, a caring community around me, ready access to health services and I am fortunate to live in a province that has put public safety before politics during this time of COVID.

It is a year since I left my large property in the Annapolis Valley and moved to a quiet condo development in the oceanside community of Eastern Passage. I have a garden home and have managed to create container gardens filled with perennials and vegetables plants. My hopes to take part in broader community activities is still on hold for now but I have been able to explore on foot the many trails nearby and get to know my new neighbours. Soon we all hope to share in a street party; we are all newbies here so there will be much to share. My family, apart from my daughter, is nearby and hopefully if and when COVID has settled a trip to Scotland to see her will be possible again.

    Thank you for the warning!! Husband is being monitored carefully and has only a 3 month prescription to start. By then I'm hoping his dietary changes will have begun to take effect . . . We persist in believing we are immortal, don't we?

    Thank you for your good wishes on my blog “Avoiding our Anniversary”
    Eventually we learned to laugh at all those unfortunate June 3rds
    Even a country song memorialized our date. Remember the “Ode to Billy Joe?”
    The day Billy Joe McAlister jumped off the Tallahachie Bridge – yep June 3rd LOL

    Apparently the meds are absolutely necessary and should have been initiated some time ago . . . but I'm hoping with diet diligence they may be tapered off in future.

    Love arugula!! So peppery and delish!! \
    We had rain overnight, early morning mist and now a gorgeous day out there!!
