Meet Evie the Unicorn and Thomas the Bear. They belong to my grandchildren but live at Grandma and Grandpa Bear’s house. In between visits they are put away on a shelf in the WIR but after the last visit they were very sad because they don’t know how long it will be until they see their family again, so we let them come and and sit in the dining room. I talk to them about all the fun they had during the last visit and it makes them feel better.
And now for something completely different. This is not a political blog. There’s enough people out there giving opinions and debating the actions and decisions of the government and medical authorities. I just want to share how life is for me and my family in these strange times. I want my grandkids and great grandkids to know what daily life was all about during the COVID-19 pandemic. I hope they read it some day.
However I’d just like to say that if I lose this, even if there is sometimes lots of seaweed,
and I don’t get to do this
because people think the rules of social distancing don’t apply to them or the beaches, I will be mighty pissed off. Just saying!!
Work wasn’t too bad for the rest of the week, in Spanish I’ve learnt to say “La niña no tiene una boligrafo” which means “The girl doesn’t have a pen”. I’m sure this is going to be very useful when I next do the Camino. I did some writing, tidied a bit more of my office, practised doing different fonts so my Bullet Journal is Insta-worthy and planted more vegetable seeds. I’m up to level 711 on Candy Crush Saga.
Papa Bear couldn’t get the barbecue on the Costa del Balconia working, despite long phone calls with the experts (his brother-in-law and his mate)
so was forced to use the one down at Porto Gardenas. Just as well we have 2 barbecues, a weber and a smoker to choose from! As always Papa Bear produced a culinary masterpiece from his barbecue, salmon cooked on a piece of cedar plank which gave it a deliciously smoky flavour
My artfully arranged lettuce leaves and chunks of potato and pumpkin barely did the salmon justice
And to finish off, this pilgrim is grateful for the living art that graces her casa every single day!
Keep healthy folks.
