I finally managed to wash the kitchen floor. I'd been resisting the urge. Instead, I was put out Christmas decor! Monday I tramped in and out of the kitchen and garage bringing in groceries. Stuff to do Tuesday, I thought Wednesday was the day. The deed done, I patted myself on the back. Thursday morning, Nutmeg threw up on the floor! As JB said, "No good deed goes unpunished!"
JB's back is slowly getting better, but we thought we'd play it safe. He is now managing a cold. I made chili to warm us up. My late mother wrote out a chili recipe for him, and I have some fondness for it. He retired before I did, and was doing groceries and house cleaning. She thought she'd help him with a recipe!
Another giggle for you. I did a massive grocery order Monday. I ended up with ONE brussel sprout! Thinking I was ordering one unit, I learned my lesson. I did put in the notes, two handfuls, but my picker missed it. Oh well! A fun moment, and I laughed so hard at myself.
I managed an evening photo of JB's bears. They were a gift from the kids to JB.
Ottawa's public school board (OCDSB) trustees tried to vote on a new mask policy. Anti-maskers stormed the meeting, police were called and it was cancelled. The anti-mask Facebook group that organized the disruption of this school board meeting is also talking about going to the intensive care unit at Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) and getting video footage proving there is “no issue.” Our pediatric hospitals, i.e., CHEO, are over capacity with flu, RSV, and respiratory viruses, including COVID. CHEO’s chief of staff explained that non-ICU hospital occupancy is at 185%, ICU at 200%, and heart and cancer surgeries being cancelled.
OCDSB went to a Zoom meeting format yesterday, and the motion failed. Our grandkids have all worn them. It's not a big deal for most kids.
🐦I'm not seeing a lot of critters these days, except for the birds at the feeder. Too busy to take photos this week, I will set up the tripod, and try for some good photos. We had several evening grosbeaks Thursday. They are pretty birds.
The weather is up and down, freezing one day, rain the next. Sometimes all of it on the same day! It's freezing rain in Ottawa. Yuck.
Happily, I can still see the deer about. The doe is really getting into the pumpkin! Those seeds are yummy.
