Yes, Sunny. My youngest daughter still lives with me. Jonni has been helpful to me. And very angry about our housing situation. It is quite fun to see her get interested in something outside of herself.

Tina, I am glad Jonni is there to help you.

We are getting a nice, cool windy day....we haven't had one of those in a while. I will take advantage of it and spend the whole day outdoors tackling chores....the first one is to mow the lawn. thumbup

Thank you Tina. I had to look up those winds. We did have some bad winds but really they were welcomed as the temps here had been so high. This week we were happy to have it only be 90. Tomorrow it is supposed to get into the triple digits.

I will be going to Illinois around the middle of August for a few days. I hope those winds do make it down to greet me there.

Goodnight. stay cool and Sleep well.

A derecho is much more than just winds. I don't know exactly how they work but it is a big deal including tornadoes and straight line winds. I kind of think of them more like a on land hurricane and as destructive.
Sweet dreams all..

Thanks for the explanation Tina, I hope it is short lived wherever it is.

Another cooler day, more outdoor chores to be tackled while I can. My lawn is mowed, beds are weeded and edges are wacked...it looks nice once again.

Thanks for the explanation, Tina. That sounds awful. I hope I never "see" one.

Glad you got so much done, Sunny. Sounds nice. Glad that the weather cooperated.

Well, they are lifting all restrictions and masking here tomorrow...so I took GG school shopping today. I figured that it was probably safer than what it will be in the coming weeks. She hadn't been out in so long that she didn't know what to do. She was so paranoid and scared...it was sad. When we got home, she said she was glad that we went when people still have to mask and keep their distance.

I can see our province being in a complete mess in the month ahead. cry

They have extended the border closing through late August though. I think that is agreements between the US and CA.
I'm vaxxed but I will continue to wear masks out there through the end of the year, I think. Maybe beyond. It's scary out there but I'm mostly thinking about the kids not allowed the vaccines yet.

Yes, I agree with you both. We have not been wearing masks but mainly because only non vaccinated people were asked to wear masks. I didn't want people to think I was not vaccinated. With all this going on, I think I will begin wearing my masks again.
I am glad that I bought cases for our vaccination cards...We may need them yet.

At this rate I will not get to go home for this Christmas either.

Good morning. I have already had my coffee and a good walk.

I am headed back out to check the last of my blackberries.

We may well have heavy rains and strong winds later today and or this evening.

There are bunches of friends to help you, Sunny. But there is a border thing.
I am actually not traveling anywhere, ever again. What I have seen of the world is enough. I have many happy memories. I ache just thinking about moving or waiting in lines. No, Im not going anywhere far.

Well Tina, if you change your mind can you bring some wire, baler twine and duct tape?....it seems that our equipment is so old that we have to modify and make our own replacement parts. It has been a long day, one that makes me wonder why we go through all this. cry

Well, we have duct tape..and I bet Brian could dig up the rest for you. Now, about that border thing...


Yes, Tina, I agree. This world is a changing, and as I see it, not for the better. We were talking today, I said I have no problem getting a third covid vaccination. Plus we got these in late January early February...so IMO the vaccinations start all over again soon. I get a flu shot every year so IMO this will be no different. Just really wish TPTB would get a handle on this like they did with other similar " things"

AND yes, most certainly Tina, wish Tangela Happy Birthday 🎂🎂🎂🎂 from me as well. I hope she had a wonderful day.
