Another Day in Paradise

My husband is working a couple of nights now. When I am home, nights are rather frustrating as I try to avoid doing anything that will make sleep any harder for him than it already is. Finding ways to be quietly productive can be a little challenging but I found a few tasks to fill my day.

Took Kat for a walk – it was a bit windy.  Had a short chat with my favourite neighbour. That was a bright spot in my day.
Cleaned a glass ball I got from my sister Denise, years ago.
Cleaned the wind chimes I got from Mom.
Made cookies
Cleaned the bamboo plant & container
Cleaned the spice  shelves

Of course, I got up to speed on all of the local Covid – 19 news.

We now have 176 confirmed cases in Saskatchewan. We keep our numbers down by a. Testing people we are sure will test negative. B. Not testing people we are sure will test positive. And C. Not processing tests for people in Regina

Of 176 people who have tested positive, 142 are between the ages of 20 to 64. Keeping non-essential factories/plants and construction sites running is not a problem. 🙄

Of  the 176 confirmed cases in Saskatchewan, 55% are male and 65% are female.  New math?

The federal government introduced a plan to pay 75% of wages for companies whose revenues are down 30% or more due to Covid-19 . Unfortunately, for companies that must stay open, revenue is not necessarily the problem. There is considerable expense involved in meeting regulations that are currently in place for any business that is still operating. For contract work, you don’t get to charge extra because your costs increase, which could be a problem for many businessed. However, our federal government has come up with a lot of financial programs to help people and companies weather this storm, so we should be grateful for the effort and hope that anyone who legitimately needs help will get it.

No idea what I will do tomorrow to keep busy.  Whatever it is, I will be sure to do it quietly. 🤫

My thoughts and prayers are going out to anyone who needs them tonight. There are so many whose lives have been lost or shattered and we have so far to go. Take care out there🥀
