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.

    Slow and steady seems to me to be the best option all around!

    Hugs all around. As we face an uncertain future, we will be needing all of them we can get. I don't know if it's much of an issue in Canada, but I find the rise of white supremacy to be very unsettling. There has just been too much permission for hate in our country. Let's keep the love alive. Glenn

    “Life is like a camera. Just focus on what’s important, capture the good times, develop from the negatives, and if things don’t work out, just take another shot.”

    No more excitement here lol. Thank goodness. They finished up attaching the permanent lines to our telephone poll today. Everything is done now. Hope you don't get too much rain. emoticon
