March 20’s Friday Flower

I am safely back in Canada and almost at my work-home to start my 14 days of self-isolation. It has been hectic as I tried to handle all sorts of things from a distance and the concern about being able to get home at all was also in the back of my mind.

Thank you to everyone who wished me safe travels and good luck. That was so very much appreciated. 🙂

And now, something lovely to look at …

I love the variegated pink and white petals.

Whatever you’re doing, and wherever you’re from, I wish you a happy weekend, good health, and a better week to come. 🙂

    1. There’s a comment just below. It’s addressed to Lynette but it’s for you, too. I know you have some health issues so careful careful careful. I’m just getting to know you and I expect you to honor my selfish desires.
      Hope you got a laugh out of this and we all live happily ever after. Take it easy.

  1. Yipee ki yay! Two whole weeks with nobody within six feet, beautiful. It’s twenty five hundred miles, give or take, from Weaverville to the lovely Okanagan. The way you open yourself up and give us all a peek at your life makes me feel like we’re neighbors. No social distance here, Dude.
    I was thinking a couple days ago that I might be one of the lucky ones,, then the symptoms abated. Something’s going to kill me, and no doubt, but it ain’t gonna be this
    To all my Canadian friends please know I’m rooting for you. If for some reason that’s not enough, I offer this: Before the nausea sets in, chow down on a big ol’ lumberjack breakfast all drowning in syrup and go down like a CANADIAN!
    Good luck, all, Love you guys.

    1. You are right, I am especially at risk and your message was heartwarming and encouraging. I was pretty disappointed that the curling competitions were cancelled in Prince George. deep sigh
      But of course that is small potatoes in the bigger sense. You are physically a long road trip away, but today it feels like you are much closer. Thanks for being a friend.

        1. Hi Kenny, thanks so much for your support! 🙂

          When you put it like that, nope, there isn’t much distance between Weaverville and the Okanagan Valley. Stay safe, my friend. I wish all my American blogging friends clean hands, good health and little to no need for lots of toilet paper. 😉

          1. Dude, you’re a pilot! Of course it’s not far. Fly to Asheville sometime and we can show one another how cool we are. Bring Dave too.

    1. Thanks Neil. 🙂 I’m trying to stay focussed on the positive things: my loved ones are safe, I’m safe, no one I know has become ill with this thing, and most importantly, I have toilet paper. If if becomes the currency of the land, I’m all set. 😉

  2. Glad you are back in Canada Lynette. Safe travels and sane self isolation. We got back home yesterday afternoon and after returning the rental car and grocery shopping this AM, we will be staying put, trying to create a new normal. Stay well. Allan

    1. Thanks Allan. 🙂 I’ve now spent more than 48 hours in isolation, and so far, so good; I’m starting to figure out this new business of trying to be an at-home CEO. The only thing is that I’m already really hankering for a walk, and I’ll probably be drooling and glassy-eyed for a walk by the time I’m allowed to go out again. 😉

      1. Hope you have someone to get groceries and supplies for you. Yes, walking is a guilty pleasure. We are not in isolation and still take short walks here, but not sure if that is going to last as people still tend to congregate when they walk their dogs. We have neighbours coming back from a cruise tonight. They will be in isolation as well. Stay safe and well. Allan

        1. Thank you Allan. 🙂 Since I work in the north, I tend to have most things readily on hand and a stocked freezer too, so we’re good for about a month. I’m not understanding some of these people who are insisting on congregating. I know that reflex is built into the human DNA, but that’s why we have brains. Then again, some people are stupid or selfish or both. Yikes.
          Stay safe.

  3. Whew. Glad to know you are home safe. It must’ve been very stressful traveling. It’s much more comfortable being in your own home to whether out this storm. Stay warm and healthy up there and thank you for sharing that lovely flower.

    1. Thanks Lori. 🙂 I was starting to get a bit concerned. I’m glad to be back. Going through the deserted Toronto airport on Thursday was a strange experience. There was no line-up at security at all, and very few people in a terminal built for thousands.

      So far, no virus symptoms, and figuring out how to do my job from home will keep me busy. My M has a line-up of series for us to catch up on too, starting with Westworld.

      I hope all is well with you, too. Stay safe. 🙂

  4. Welcome work-home. And this will seem like it’s coming out of nowhere, but this photo reminds me of an episode from the TV series “Pushing Daisies”. Which means I’m thrilled… 😉

    1. Thank you, Brian. 🙂 A cheer went up from the passengers when we landed in Toronto. People were happy to get home.

      I remember that series. It was so good, and, of course, got cancelled so quickly.

  5. There’s something wacky going on with WordPress, because some of the blogs I follow (i.e. yours), I’m no longer getting notices of new posts. Leading me to believe a shocking number of bloggers suddenly stopped blogging?
    Anyway, this is a long way of saying, sorry I haven’t been around and all that. Also, you’re about to get a notice of me following you again? I know. Weird.
    Anyway, glad you’re still here. Also, lovely flower and stay well. 🙂

    1. Hi Christi, I’ve had that happen too. I’ll suddenly miss someone and then it turns out that I’ve mysteriously unfollowed them. This happened a few months ago with someone I had been following for almost seven years! So, no apologies necessary. I understand completely. 🙂

      I’m glad to see you too. Stay safe and well. 🙂

I'd love to hear what you have to say!
