Same old, with a covid-twist

It’s hot.

Don’t @ me, I’m allowed to state this fact. We had a 6 month winter and I like it when it’s hot. I’m just sayin’…Also. Air conditioning is nice for sleeping. 🙂

No sparks of joy here while decluttering

After spending a few days in my mom’s clean house, I came back to mine and was overcome with a need to declutter and deep clean. No time like the present! (Ugh. I hate when I say stupid shit like that…)

Of course my return home was not smooth and uneventful. As I said yesterday, the look around the place had me suffer a conniption which catapulted me into action, so at least that. Right? Continue reading “No sparks of joy here while decluttering”

Another slice of my life from heatwave Toronto

My daughter and I returned from my mom’s place, which was big and empty and clean and clutter-free, this morning.

Talking as a form of exercise ðŸ˜€

And by walk I mean the opposite of walking. I mean mostly standing around and talking to people. 😀

Living in a bubble

Disclaimer: I’m feeling sorry for myself. Don’t be rude or obnoxious in the comments, I’ll block you. None of my self-absorbedness in this post means I’m not anxious or active in other, more important things going on in my family, community and beyond. This post isn’t a tally of what I do for others; I don’t feel like justifying myself to anyone today. This is my blog and today, this is what flows out of my head and into my keyboard. Sorry not sorry.

Some days I feel like I’m living inside a bubble.

I don’t mean to imply the bubble is an isolated, lonely entity of solitude, because there isn’t much of that despite still staying home most of the time. I just mean the lack of external obligations has me more isolated than usual, and for longer than usual. Continue reading “Living in a bubble”

Loosening the clutches of lock-down

I guess summer vacation came a bit early this year what with the school year disrupted since March.

I think technically, the kids are done this semester. Most teachers expected final hand-in of work by June 12 and the remaining two weeks are used for finalizing report cards.

So the kids, already on a reduced schedule, have had quite a bit of free time just as phase 1 of reopening began.

Well.
