Where are we?

Monday, May 31, 2021

This afternoon I went to pick up my hearing aids. I have the same model as Michele. I can control my hearing aids from my phone. We update Michele's hearing aids. She can control hers too from her phone. I no longer need headphones to listen to TV. The TV sound goes directly into my ear via the hearing aids. The same for Michele, great!

Natasha, we can not wait to see her again. We should be leaving on Thursday.

This is Gabriel's family in Alberta. Shannon,Jaden, Danielle, Gabriel's mom, and Gabriel.

This morning I finished the brake lights on the car, well, surprise! I had to do some changess, but in the end, everything is working fine. I will install them permanently when we get to Moose Jaw. I also check the water level in the coach batteries.

Some of the photos Jeremy and Kristin sent us.
What a cat they have...

Natasha loves colouring.

But at the end of the day, we got some not-so-good news from Jeremy and Kristin.
The daycare where Natasha goes has one employee who is anti-vax. Guess what? She tested positive for COVID-19! Go figure.
Now all the kids in the daycare have to self isolate for 14 days... That also means the parents of those kids also have to self-isolate for 14 days. All this because one person does not believe in vaccines based on what she read on FB. That means Kristin who is a respiratory technician cannot go to work in the hospital because of that person. The other respiratory technicians will have to work harder because of that!!! As for us, we are NOT leaving this Thursday, but maybe on Monday... OK, enough said.

Natasha got her first test for COVID today. Kristin told us Natasha did very good with the big q-tips. She got a treat for being a trooper.

Since we will not be leaving Thursday, why not help Jan build another deck!

I have learned a lot from Jan while helping him.

This is at the end of the first day.

The result of Natasha's first test is back. It is negative, yes!
One more test needs to be done on Monday. Maybe we will be leaving for Saskatchewan on Thursday?

At the end of the second day, we are almost done except for the front steps. We would be done if it was not for the rain this morning.

The artist.

Michele did this poncho with crochet. She is good. Now, Michele wants to crochet another one, the same colour, but for Natasha. She does not have enough yarn to finish it. And we cannot go into the stores to buy that because of COVID.

In just under an hour, we are done with the steps for the deck. I am very happy to have helped build this deck and the one before. I now have experience. It does not mean I am very good, just that I can wing it better... Jan is a good teacher.

Jannie has invited all of us for lunch. We are having pulled pork, very good.

No people food for Charger and Diesel.

Why take a photo of the robotic vacuum?

Last evening while the robot was vacuuming, it clipped a bottle of wine. The bottle of red wine fell on the ground and broke! Talk about a drunken robot!

I am cutting grass at Jannie and Jan's place this morning.

With the grass cut, I give them a hand planting...

... cedar fence. Just this many gives a depth perspective to the big yard, nice.

We also pre-dug some holes to plant trees later.

It was a good morning.

It was a hot day today. We are under a "Special Air Quality advisory".
I spend most of the day working on my blog for the next update.
And a nice sunset.

Until next time.

Life is good...
