The government replaced a temporary covid sign of the same message with a permanent one. This tells me they don't anticipate this being over anytime anywhere near soon. Apparently in Saskatchewan they are already talking about August, which (to my mind) means maybe next spring.

Permanent Covid sign

The garden is coming up vegetables.

I put the lettuce in yesterday because they will be under the row covers. The tomatoes and peppers are still waiting their turn in the greenhouse.

Who said Quail are small... the quail on this orchard are large. This feeder, you may recall, is about 12 inches high.

My Dr called on Monday to discuss my bloodwork results. He is very surprised, but in agreement, that my thyroid is definitely giving out something. My medication was 75 (I thought it was 50) and he has now reduced it to 50 and we will check it again in 2 months.


  1. Glad to hear your numbers are still declining. I too, don't think we will be out of this Covid stuff for the rest of 2021. We will just get through summer and as always the fall always brings on any sickness more as people are inside again.

    1. Hopefully we can have you two over for a BBQ NEXT summer....

  2. Glad your numbers are heading in the right direction probably in part due to your personal diet.
    Heard rumor in the News the International Border may not open until the new year.
    Glad the garden is coming along.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

    1. Yes its not looking good for a 'soon' recovery.
