Noisy Friday

It’s windy today. So windy that the Cessna 172 training flights at a local airport were canceled.

It’s also cold. All my lovely plants I bought for my garden and deck railing are in my house, to shield them from possible overnight frost.

Southern Canada is tricky to figure out when it comes to weather. People with April birthdays might have pictures dating back to childhood where in some cases they are wearing winter coats or snowsuits and in other cases are wearing summer dresses.

I suspect we will go from heating the house at night to turning the AC on during the day within a matter of a week. This cold front is temporary, we all know this.

Still, I’m over it. Get me out of this house!

Anyway my partner finished the Beagle-proof fence in the rain yesterday and even added a little gate so I can easily enter to deal with my plants. Tucker was confused that he’s now banned from digging back there. Ha.

Puppy-proof fence

I’m going to have to be careful when I go through the gate (which isn’t pictured in the above image) because he’s sneaky… πŸ˜‰

Sneaky Beagle

I’m sitting here sipping my second coffee listening to the international air traffic flying over my house. While us Torontonians are locked into our homes, our children haven’t had a social life or in person school in months, and we’re banned from going to golf courses and outdoor tennis courts, international flights are bringing in hordes of people who are not monitored to quarantine upon arrival. Apparently they require a negative test to enter the land but I’m not convinced everyone is doing that.

I’m beginning to think herd immunity at huge human costs is the only way to get through this pandemic. I’m certainly doing my part to avoid more death and destruction but apparently that’s not enough, because covidiots.

And politicians.

Apologies for continuously injecting covid-related negativity into my posts but it really is quite maddening to lead by example for the sake of the kids, modeling law-abiding behaviour when so much injustice is continually thrown into our faces.

Here comes another plane… I can hear it flying right over my house. πŸ›¬πŸ˜΅

So you see, even if I stay off the news and social media I keep being subjected to more reminders about how inept this entire thing has been dealt with in my province and country. Airplane noise is the culprit today. ✈️

I will end here before I turn into a raging lunatic. The children need breakfast and I think I’m going to plant my kale in the cold soil outside because that’s one vegetable that can handle the cool temps.

I just hope the wildlife won’t get at it. I know there are bunnies around because Tucker barks at them. πŸ‡πŸ˜€

King Tucker

Here he is, beagling the wildlife. πŸ™ƒ

  1. Ahhh, Tucker is a joy! Yes, he drives you crazy, but that’s his job. From the looks of it, he takes his job of Beagling very seriouslyπŸ˜‚
    I totally understand the frustration about the Kootie! I was in a constant state of RAGE from about mid October until March. It will get better.

    Think of all the fresh air you new plants are gifting you for protecting them from cold.πŸ˜‰πŸ₯°πŸ’–

  2. The good news is, we’re supposed to hit 85F today. Which means warm weather is just a few days away for you!

    (BTW, WP unsubscribed you from my followers AGAIN. Wish I knew wtf was up with that.)

  3. Windy here today, too. It’s beautiful to see the trees swaying in the breeze until I remember they’re spreading pollen out there. I’m allergic to it, of course. Yet another reason beyond Covid-19 to stay inside my house.

  4. I’ve been to Toronto twice. We were downtown near the tower. It was such a beautiful place. The daylight looks so different for some reason. I think it’s the difference in latitude. Lots of seafood if I remember. We also have the heat/ac issue this time of year. 87 and then 50 at night. Still, I’m happy to see the end of winter and hope for a better summer. We actually went to a restaurant last weekend after we both had our vaccines. Exciting.

    1. I can’t wait to eat in a restaurant again! Preferably an outdoor patio. πŸ™‚ I’m sure you had a nice time.

      I’m getting my first shot on Mother’s Day (May 9) and my second not until 4 months later…

      Yes, the downtown core of Toronto is really quite beautiful. But nowadays there’s nowhere to go, nothing to do so who knows. I’m secretly hoping they’ll get all that annoying construction done by the time they open us up again so we can enjoy our city. But that’s probably wishful thinking. πŸ™‚

  5. Is there really any such thing as a beagle-proof fence?

    Who the hell are these people flying? How is an airplane not one big, gross COVID soup? And if land borders to the US are closed, how is flying in via a can of COVID soup better?

  6. It really makes you think, we’re doing ALL we can to stop it and yet international flights are still going on. People are still coming in and not quarantining in airport hotels to make sure they aren’t spreading it. At least you have a spiffy fence now. πŸ™‚
