The Pandemic Diaries - Weeks #42, #43, and #44

Monday, January 25, 2021

We just finished up our 44th week of life in a pandemic, though it depends on when your region shut down. Wow. Seems so much longer than not quite a year.

But birds and flowers are helping me get through this.

    We love birds and have been heavily into bird watching for years. We have a few bird feeders and bird houses and 2 bird baths plus they drink out of our fountains and pond too.

    Love your flower lady!! Awesome!

    We are finally getting our 2nd vaccines.

    Thanks for fixing the link. Wonderful pictures, as always, and I love the idea of the supermarket giving away the flowers instead of dumping them.

    I’ve never paid a lot of attention to birds, but will try to start paying more attention.

    I was just about to ask when your next update would be when I saw the link on FB.
    Spark is once again ignoring my "subscribe" requests.

    I especially loved the picture with the ruffled feathers. Maybe the birds are getting used to you too and you can get closer. "Look honey, it's that lady with the camera again, let's give her a good angle" LOL

    I'm learning to appreciate my little world, at least the natural part. I had to go to town yesterday to take care of some Ministry business and in the office where my appt was scheduled - NO MASKS on the employees. I was double masked. You have to be around here. The woman who was to meet with me put a mask on as I obviously stood in the doorway not approaching her. I signed the required documents using my own pen and got out of there.

    Before it got too cold we kayaked to an area where a developer went bankrupt. The beaver have built such a huge dam over a creek we called it the "beaver apartments"
    Not a good time to develop raw land but home prices on the lake have exploded. Supposedly people now want to live in a vacation spot since they doubt when they will be able to travel to one again.

    Love your sensitive photos of birds and skies and seas . . . and flowers (what a kind thing for the supermarket AND the neighbours to do!! Lots of enjoyment left in those flowers!!)

    And yes I agree: our sense of what's a "big outing" has really changed over the year . . . and for me, more and more pleasure in the smallest stuff. It's always been the stuff that matters most, and now I know that at even deeper levels.

    So: are you going to turn into a full-fledged (!) birder? Getting one of those khaki vests with all the little pockets and buckles and Velcro fasteners? Binoculars? Digital zoom camera?
