It has been very quiet around the old homestead. Part of the reason could be that I have been very busy doing things to keep me out of trouble.
I finished Harvey's sweater today (picture to follow when the lighting is better), baked bread, two pumpkin pies, and seriously considered baking cookies as well (but didn't, will do so tomorrow morning) and pulled yarn and a pattern to work on a sweater for myself.
I can't make the carboy cozies (to keep the wine in them in the dark) until Friday when Harvey bottles one batch, so decided that this afternoon I would work on my cross stitch. I had set it aside awhile ago and now realize why, my those stitches are small. However I will work on it until I need to start on the cozies and until the end of the week during the afternoons.
Keeping as busy as possible is helping me not to think about how close Covid-19 could be to us. The top leader of the bible study I help with just under went a test. She and her husband should find out in a few days whether or not they have it. I always wore my mask around her (and she had one on as well), but considering the infectiousness of this virus one never knows. I will be attending the next study tomorrow, but if her test comes back positive I will not be attending any others. I do not need to bring this home to Harvey with his heart condition, and I need to stay healthy in order to have the surgery I have been waiting on.
Since we have now gone from 0 cases to 11 cases in my small area of Saskatchewan (perhaps adding 2 more if the worst case scenario arises) I will be hurrying forward with my stock up efforts.
Kurt and Kris should be home at some point on Friday night. I have a feeling that will be the last time we see Kurt for awhile as cases are once again on the rise. My province not so much, but Kurt's province is getting a bigger uptick in cases each day. Christmas will not be the same at all if he can not make it home. We have such few times that he can make the 9 hour drive. I am very thankful that he has managed to get back every year for Thanksgiving so far. Pretty sure there may come a time when he can't. So I will count us blessed to see him for two days.
Everybody have a wonderful evening.
