The days just keep right on rolling right along, each merging into the next with great regularity.
So far, unlike many of the provinces in Canada, our restrictions are not too onerous as of yet. We are however back to sticking to our household bubbles and trying not to venture into the stores very much. Other than worry about our sons and how they are doing, things are pretty much normal here. I am quite content with Zoom get togethers, Facebook rooms and phone calls/text messages. I am not a really outgoing person, though people think I am. I would much rather have a few close friends and keep the rest at arms length.
Still even though we have not had the restrictions of other provinces I almost wish we would enact a few of them. Perhaps closing down our provincial borders to all but essential travel would cut our cases a bit. I am beginning to know more and more people that have contracted the virus and even though we have had the first shot, I worry that one or the other of us could come down with it. In Harvey's case that could be disastrous, as he has a heart condition.
I have been doing some baking this weekend.
Filled up the cookie jar, to Harvey's delight (I have more in a container to top this up as the contents go down).
Made my favourite sour cream coffee cake (had to have a slice or two with my lunch today). It is now sliced and put into another container.
Tonight I will make one last item and the baking will be done for the week. Well, probably bread will need to be made.
I thought I would share my gift of free yarn from my friend.
Some of this haul will be made into dryer balls, some for me and some to be given to the son's for gifts next Christmas.
This is what is called Siwash yarn. It is more like a roving and is usually used to make bulky sweaters. You need to twist the 6 strands together once you start knitting so that there is some tensile strength to the yarn. I plan on using much of this haul to make mitts. They will be nice and warm, wonderful for gifts and perhaps for selling or giving away to those in need.
I have been unable to find my error in the cross stitch so it is being put away, and I will be gathering together the threads and pattern for a different cross stitch project. Sometimes one just has to move on.
Everybody have a wonderful evening.
