KABU ASKED ME TO GIVE YOU THIS MESSAGE

Tonight our Wiley has moved on to the warm and sunny place he has been striving to reach, leaving us wonderful memories of a stand-up guy with a wicked sense of humour and an immense empathy and love for those he cared about. Kabu, although numb at the moment, is holding up well. Trish, fortunately... Sign in to see full entry.

AND THEN THERE WAS CHRISTMAS

“Memere, Papa said I was going to get a mega-surprise today! Did you know? It’s a MEGA-surprise, Memere!” she insisted. “Really? What it could be?” I wondered aloud as I helped my just turned six year old granddaughter remove her winter suit and boots. She had come inside after sliding down my long,...

DAY OF EMOTIONS

Although I saw the whole thing from start to finish yesterday, even getting back up to watch the session resolutely continue, finally confirming Mr. Biden and Pamala Harris as President and Vice President, which happened at 3:44 AM by the way, I’m not going to blog about it today. I’m still trying... Sign in to see full entry.

QUARANTINE WITH A PARROT

So my province is going into strict lockdown again as of this weekend, curfews included; no visiting, staying at home except for essential errands, schools and offices closed. Shopping is restricted to groceries and pharmacies. The anti-maskers will be complaining, but this time around hefty fines... Sign in to see full entry.

THIS NEW YEAR...

Happy New Year to you all! This past one has been quite a ride, has it not? Even with the end of 2020, the ride is not over yet, but at least there is a glimmer of hope on the horizon. My gang weathered it quite well so far, although we did lose some people to that dreaded virus. I guess I don’t... Sign in to see full entry.

CLEANUP ON AISLE TWO!

I made Asian food for my sons’ Father’s Day supper; pineapple chicken, General Tao, Chop Suey and fried rice, with little pecan tarts for dessert. As is the norm in our pandemic scene, the kids, having served themselves, were sitting at the other end of the table. My Japanese DIL, who was making her... Sign in to see full entry.

EARLY SATURDAY MORNING

We are having a bit of a heat wave. Although warmer than I like, it’s endurable. The highest temperature so far is 32 C here in the bush. This kind of weather encourages people to escape the houses where they have isolated for so long. Finally greeting friends, the kiddies joyfully romping with... Sign in to see full entry.

A POST ABOUT NOT MUCH AT ALL

I’m not really all that good at fabricating things, so my Covid body suit turned out to be a bust. It ended up in the recycle bin BEFORE the birthday BBQ. That at least was a huge success, even if I didn’t get to hug the kiddies as planned. I still enjoyed watching the little ones romp around, each... Sign in to see full entry.

DOUBLE DIGET DAY

Today is the youngest Rugrat’s birthday; he turns all of 10 years old or, as his siblings put it, he’s now a double digit. Tonight they stopped in to pick up Tao’s birthday box of goodies on the way to their dad’s place, and his brother, who celebrated his first teen-day last Sunday, asked me “Do...
