I never thought I'd say this

but I am actually feeling very fortunate to be in my 60's and in the latter third of my life. Right now with the global pandemic and now it's announced that we've got the worst seasonal storms coming in history. The storm thing is only going to get worse with climate change. I feel sorry for all you young foks out there.

Still phase 2

I'm really surprised to see some people travelling to places in BC that have been very vocal about not wanting visitors to come until Phase 3; which is still over a week away. If they love the place so much wouldn't they want to respect their wishes. Also, it's not all that long to wait.

Coming to town finally!

Jollibee! Isn't that just jolly, or what! I cannot wait to eat !!!! Yum yum! Hooray food!

Too close to home

On my social media today everybody was talking about America but no-one would touch alcoholism. Day 11 sober if anyone cares.

Allergies, Covid and Work

Has anyone else been suffering from allergies and not been able to go to work because customers/clients might mistaken you for having Covid?

Miss the Office

I am glad to have a job and my health, but I do miss the office. I feel more productive there and miss getting up for a stroll to use the washroom, get a drink of water, ask a colleague a question etc. Strapped to the chair the whole day is a pain in the back (not neck-back).


Here I am, in my 30s, excited to go and visit my younger brother because I watched a few videos about The Legend of Zelda timeline split from OoT and my mind is blown. I haven’t played any of the games except OoT so it was like a whole new world opened up to me.

Straining my patience!

I confess that I’m not the most patient person at the best of times. I do my best, but there are times when I seriously would like to just slap someone. Especially inconsiderate people who literally act like they’re alone on the earth. I was picking up some groceries yesterday, and trying to keep my distance and wait my turn if someone was at the same place I needed to be. So...I wanted some bagels, and this guy pulled up his cart at the same time I did, so I stood back and waited. And waited, and waited, and ...! The guy proceeded to microscopically examine virtually every bag on the shelf. He picked them up, put them in his cart, then picked up others and squeezed them, held them in both hands as if he was weighing them, pulled them out of his cart and put them back on the shelf, etc. This went in for at least 5 minutes while he completely ignored those of us who were waiting. (by this time there was 3 of us). If it hadn’t been for the fact that the bagels were the last item I needed before I checked out, I wouldn’t have waited. All I have to say is that he has no idea how close he came to being rammed by my shopping cart! Inconsiderate jerk.


During the lockdown I had time to read two novels. One was Dune by Frank Herbert. The other was the Irishman by Charles Brandt. They were both really good. I had the time so I read. I wish that I had read more books. I wonder if anyone else read during the lockdown?


I Saw You in Costco

I saw you in Costco. You were wearing a very artistic corgi face mask and bought what could only...
