Monday Ramble in May.

Hello! Happy Monday! – Or Big Weekend as its known these days for those of us not working. Happy May! And Happy Rain Day.

It’s been raining all night and once it stops and the sun works its magic, everything is going to be GREEN GREEN GREEN again! Woot Woot!

The sun is my main squeeze. But, my side squeeze is pretty damn awesome too!

I bring you an example of True Love:

The Hubs came back to the house after he left for work and tapped on the window, beckoning me to come outside. He had something to tell me.

“Don’t go outside today.”


“There are worms EVERYWHERE!”

He then went on to count the ones on the sidewalk in front of our house. There were over TWENTY worms on the eight square of concrete and more than that on the road. *shudder.

Yep. Definitely NOT going outside today. Gross. Thanks Honey. ❀ What a guy.

I feel so low key today. The rain is making me feel cosy and sleepy. Today is a perfect day for reading books, reading blogs and watching movies ❀

I may also have an A-Z hangover. I love doing the challenge but I also love when its over. I feel like I get my blog back. That seems silly because it’s always been MY blog but its extra work and energy, outside of my normal output. The challenge takes over it all. For an introvert like me, it takes me a bit to fill the reserves back up! Despite the worms, I’m grateful for today. I’ll be less inclined to do stuff πŸ™‚

So, do I prefer the wormpocalypse or the Sun, 2020?

HA HA HA! Yeah…I’m still going with the sun.

Always the sun. πŸ™‚

( My version of Sun 2020, mind you. My version is a privileged version for which I am SO grateful. Lots of people have shitty versions, that’s for damn sure. )

We’re starting to phase life back in, in my province and it’s a bit strange. I’ll be able to go to the dentist for a cleaning but not the library. That makes ZERO sense to me.

Can you tell I miss the library and was looking forward to missing the dentist πŸ˜‰

Dr. Hinshaw says we can gather and meet friends too-up to 15-, so long as we’re well and practice social distancing. I’m not entirely sure about that either.

In theory it’s safe and lovely and all that. In practice, its so easy to forget! I helped a gent experiencing homelessness and I was definitely within 6 ft of him and a whole host of other folks. I chose humanity over safety and that was the right thing to do in that moment. I just know that choice will be even easier to fling off around friends and family. I guess, it’s like everything else; it takes practice.

Has this ever happened to you? It has to me! I love these little reminders to refocus my attention sometimes. A person doesn’t have to ignore what’s going on, just take a break from it when you stop seeing the good stuff too.

Do you have any big plans for the month ahead? I’m going for a distance walk with a friend on Saturday and have made it my mission to explore all sorts of cool new places this month. Oh! And get my bike out for more rides too! How about you?

  1. Still doing a lot of walking, but mostly on the street, as locals do not know what social distancing during a walk means and also most people are riding their bikes on the sidewalk. Going for a walk in the rain. Will watch out for the worms, though. Our bikes are ready to go, so maybe when the sun comes back. Gotta get a bit further afield. Stay well, stay dry and stay out of the worms ways, Lael. Allan
