We have had more good news about Bobby. He is not on his own. We have heard it from a friend of a friend of a friend that his Mom is hanging around Yellow Point. So maybe they are social distancing or she is letting him have a bit of freedom from her parental control. Might explain why there was so much breaching in front of us the other night and why it was so loud. Perhaps she was cavorting with him… anyhoo.. We will try to get a picture of the two of them together if we can..
E is puttering away on the bunkie. What he calls the last 5%. We were able to get another can of stain, so there has been staining, and indoor window trimming and indoor paint finishing…. putter putter… All whistling jobs.. He likes these jobs. His own pace.
The garden looks amazing. What a great place to sit and ignore the world.. It is all weeded. The vegie portion of the garden has garlic, peas, spinach, lettuce, rhubarb and asparagus already doing what they should be doing. Tomatoes, pumpkin, carrots, beets, zucchini and cucumber to come.
Thanks to our friends and the new services of the grocery store on the neighbouring island, our freezer and pantry are filling. Supplies won’t be of a concern fairly soon, especially when the garden is producing. Be nice not to be bothering our friends so much!
What is it like on the island right now? Our friends are all taking social distancing very seriously. Most are over sixty and many have underlying health issues. No one is having friends into their house. In the last five weeks we have visited with friends three times. Each time outside, sitting six feet apart for cocktail hour. No more than six people at a time, usually four. We bring our own glasses, drinks and food.
E and I have not had anyone over. To make it absolutely clear how we feel about visitors, in the nicest possible way, we have posted a sign at the top of our driveway.
Piper isn’t handling the new normal very well. He spends a lot of time under the chair..
We fully expect that to keep E (and me) safe, our days will be much like these for a long time. We look forward to welcoming friends and family into our home
again, in 2021
