Hello and happy Day that ends in “Y” my Costco friends and family!
Hopefully you’ve all had a good week!
As I said a few weeks ago I won’t be doing my Friday shopping at Costco until this COVID-19 situation calms down a little bit. We’re doing OK with it, and have been following the recommended advice of only going out for the essentials once a week (which is my Monday Costco shop) otherwise staying home. So this post won’t have any fun and exciting Costco weekend sales in it, just me doing what I would normally do… Without the sales.
I did do a drive by today, just to give Costco a little wave, as I miss it…
I couldn’t help it. I felt like I at least had to go and see it… (sniff sniff)
While the weather has been a little up and down with sun and rain, that’s par for the course. (And thank God something is par for the course these days with COVID-19 making it “not so”, the opposite of what Jean Luc Picard would say)
Even Pickard groaned at that one…
Speaking of which, has anyone watched the new Picard series??? (Is anyone out there a Trekkie?) I haven’t yet, but would like to, though my Mother has been watching it and has said it’s a little… I don’t know if she said depressing, but the first few episodes were a little down feeling. I never like to judge a show by the first half of the season because that’s the establishing period where you meet characters and are introduced into the whole world, so sometimes it feels a little slow or confusing, but once they get the story established and the world and characters introduced you can then really get sucked into it… Like we did with “LOST” (Now may be a good time to re-watch actually!)
While we’ve been making sure that we’re staying active, the robins around here have been wayyyy more active than us!
We noticed (on Tuesday morning) that there was a flurry of activity happening out on our front porch, not really thinking about it too much as birds flying around is pretty normal here. So it wasn’t until later in the day when we decided it was time to take the Christmas wreath down (don’t judge!) that we kind of couldn’t…
Those robins have decided that our front porch was a good spot to nest… Incredible how they managed to get it built so fast!!! That being said now we have 3 robin couples nesting in our area. I’ll keep you updated on how that goes.
The cats have been taking full advantage of us being here at this point, making sure that we’re “on-call to open the door” for what seems like every 4 minutes to either go outside, or come inside.
This is a common scene at any given time of day…
While cute indeed, by the 25th time while trying to enjoy your morning coffee “cute” doesn’t seem to fit properly anymore.
At least Ewok was looking up as if to ask. Always using his charm that one.
While we have been isolating from the general public we have been taking walks down our country road (as I’ve said my partner is better at this than I) and have made some friends down the road from us.
(I think this guy needs a name as well, suggestions are welcome!)
The cows are semi-curious about us, though not very talkative. The chickens (there’s 6 of them, and chickens are hilarious to me for some reason.) seem to be always out and about on this property pickin’ and scratchin’ around, so this is good incentive for me to get out for a walk. Ya know, to see the chickens.
Well, I think that I’ll let you go for the evening folks, I was going to go and teach my partner how to play a Nirvana song on drums but our attention has now shifted to watching “jumanji” instead.
Friday night family movie, just have to corral the cats and we’ll be set!
Perhaps some Kirkland signature microwave popcorn is in order to accompany our venture??? Hmmm….
Have a good night folks, stay safe and healthy.
See you on Monday.
