Arriving in Dryden at 4:30pm I was receiving tornado alerts on my phone. Checking the weather apps there was a break along the highway where two cells separated north and south so I pushed on to Kenora, ON with the weather clearly behind me.
Reaching Kenora at 6pm and in typical Katie fashion, I asked Siri (iphone assistant) how far it was to Winnipeg, MB… 2.5 hours, okay what time is sunset in Winnipeg? 9:30pm. Perfect, and off I went.
I didn’t see the point of sitting 4-5 hours in the truck (I’ve slept in the truck the whole trip) so I could then sleep a few hours.
I arrived in Winnipeg at 9pm and parked up at another Flying J where after a good nights sleep I was able to have another shower and beautify myself before heading northwest to Saskatoon, SK.
Because my Daughter-in-law runs a daycare and my Mother-in-law is 82, I once again wanted a Covid rapid test to make sure I was clean so stopped in Yorkton at a drive-thru one.
In case I didn’t mention it, I had a test done before getting to Stacey’s Mum in Nova Scotia and another before getting to Dad’s in Ontario. Shopper’s Drug Mart offers them in Ontario for $40. Both were clear.
Anyway, in Yorkton after stuffing the swab waaay up my nostril he tells me they don’t do the rapid test only the pcr which takes 3-4 days to come back. At least I didn’t have to pay for that one.
Off I went to Saskatoon to get the proper rapid test so I could see my Gkids, arriving at the facility just after 2pm. Once again Negative and headed to my Mother-in-law’s.
Now - Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia have removed mask requirements since Stacey and I left but I continue to wear it anyway.
Yesterday (Sunday) I picked up my Gkids and took them to ToysRUs with a budget each and then ice cream after, which we brought back to Meg’s (Mother-in-law) so they didn’t eat it in her car.
