Good Morning . I hope that every one is doing well. A little bit of a catch up; I had a good birthday, low key. My carrot cake was good & in the end I did not colour the cream cheese icing. It felt a little strange not putting candles in the holders, but there's no more blowing across a cake. I had candles off to the side so I could make my birthday wish. Also, I don't think I've ever had a square birthday cake before! I had lots of very kind people remember me on my birthday with cards & other forms of messages - all very much appreciated.
One of our leading doctors on the regional COVID task force issued a warning on August 27th, in one of her twice a week F/B messages in response to the COVID-19 4th wave rising new cases & hospitalizations, " We should be avoiding indoor social gatherings unless everyone in the room is fully vaccinated & asymptomatic. We must avoid outdoor gatherings where people are in close contact & the vaccine status of everyone in the group is unknown. Wear masks in all public spaces."
I can now fully understand why many are wanting vaccine passports, which for Canadians isn't that unusual; all through school we were issued yellow vaccine (measles, mumps, chickenpox, etc) cards that had to be produced for attendance at school. No one complained about that.
My garden is really struggling with the 2 1/2 weeks without rain although as I write this, Sunday night, there's a possibility of a storm with rain coming through. Fingers crossed.
Now having said that about my garden, I have been able to keep my flower pots watered, using my 4 rain barrels (now empty) & the water from our dehumidifier (indoors). My 5 pots of morning glories are all doing well. Lots of variety in colours in each pot.
And I'll leave you with this thought ... "I was asked recently, if I had plans for the fall; it took me a while to realize they were asking me about Autumn & not the fall of society."
