The world is chaotic at best right now. When this pandemic began, I wondered what I would blog about, as travel as we knew it had just been curtailed. But, as my readers will note, there has been no shortage of bike rides, hikes and mountain visits, as well as some serious stuff and also some nonsense.
As I sit here blogging on my plastic “bubbled” back deck, in my toque and winter coat, with the infra-red heater whirring away, I am strangely content. I know this is not Thanksgiving on either side of the 49th, but as always, Gratitude is the Attitude.
The photo was actually taken on October 29, 2020, when the temperature got to +7 C. Today, I am back on the bubble deck in short-sleeves and the outside temperature on November 2/2020 is +14. I just mowed my lawn for the final time, but who knows and yes, the heater is in fact whirring.

For a warm home that is all paid off
for not being ill with Covid cough,
for food to eat and good wine to drink,
for time for chores and some time to think,
for friends I see on computer screen,
and those who visit my bubble scene,
for my kids all with good paying jobs,
for not needing any nasal swabs,
for photos taken that aren’t half bad,
for all my readers, I am so glad,
for the strength to change my attitude,
I extend my utmost gratitude.
