Walking Squares. – Inflatables – Yes or NO
…thanks to Becky B for hosting Walking Squares https://beckybofwinchester.com/2022/11/28/walking-squares-28/
As I walk through the neighbourhood I see more and more inflatable Christmas characters popping up on lawns. I can see how children might like them. They are rather whimsical and fun to look at but…..
….many people don’t keep them inflated all the time. I’m not sure if it’s too costly to keep them inflated all day long but when they’re not inflated it looks like someone’s laundry has been strewn all over the front yard.

A COVID Picnic in November
…with this unusually warm and sunny weather in the last weekend of November we were able to get together with family for an outdoor picnic
Every time I say that we’ve seen the end of the good weather for awhile we get these amazing days. So we decided to make the most of it and I organized a picnic lunch with my daughter and her family who live in Hamilton. They thought it was a great idea and they drove to Toronto to spend some time with me and my husband.
I quickly drove to the deli up the street and picked up fresh buns, cheese, coldcuts and a few jam filled Polish donuts. I made up sandwiches and packed our lunches in separate bags and with masks on we started to walk to Col. Sam Smith Park which is about a kilometre from the house. After awhile we took off our masks and stayed socially distant from each other.
It was a lovely walk and we found a bench to sit on and Gaelan’s family sat on the rocks so we could enjoy our lunch. It’s these small pleasures in life that make for memorable moments and help make the isolation of COVID bearable.
