this spring

March and April have blended into one. Some things of note this spring:

  • Nissan Prime has gone to her new home, my Dad!
  • I went pink, and now I’m back to regular purplish brown
  • My loans are paid off! *knocks on wood* I’m debt free until my new vehicle arrives…
  • We went through an alert level change, so I’m back to work in my office tomorrow
  • Jeffrey and I will celebrate our one year anniversary next week!
  • Grace is still cool af
  • I bought 3 boxes of old VHS from a lady and scored a lot of old horror movies (like 60s), and WWF wrestling shows (which Jeff is happy about)
  • Been reading, and painting

Here’s some snaps.

Love,

shelter in place

Since my last post we’ve bounced back to alert level 5 with COVID-19. I’m not sure why, but periodically I envision myself many years from now reading books on 2020-21 and scratching my head thinking, ‘did that really happen? I lived through this?’

I’m working from home now, which is w e i r d. I’m finding it hard trying to keep work/home separate, so much so that I don’t like going into the second bedroom anymore where my temporary office is set up alongside Jeff’s gaming empire. Which is a shame because that’s where all my favourite things are; my books, my cameras, my art supplies.

Anyways. I’ll adjust. This is going to be ‘life with COVID’ after all, I don’t think this is going anywhere anytime soon.

Here’s some things I’ve been up to.

I hope you’re all keeping safe & well.

Dog Parkin’ It

Since we got Daisy the lil husky mix back in October we’ve been visiting the dog park more. Bringing Grace alone often proved to be a challenge, because other dogs would tend to gang up on her as they saw her blindness as weakness and I didn’t think it was worth the stress on her to do this.

Daisy, on the other hand, is a little scrapper when things get in the way of Grace and herself, so she’s proven to be quite useful at the dog park. No dogs have been picking on Grace since I’ve taken them together. Sometimes I luck out and it’s just the three of us there.

Here are some shots from today. There’s one that’s quite funny, you’ll know it when you spot it. I was attempting to take a picture of Grace and just as I went to take the shot Daisy jumped over her. I laughed so hard it made me dizzy.

My love to you all.
