Now, not only are we losing our new ferries and terminal, B.C. Ferries has announced an intent to reduce sailings between Nanaimo and Gabriola. Shizah!
Yesterday was a truly lovely day. It was bright and sunny, warm but not hot. I won’t bore you with the details, but I will tell you that my Strawberry and Blueberry crops are going to be fabulous. Now that they are maturing, I am covering most of my bushes with netting, but I am leaving others uncovered for the birds.
To increase caloric burn, I walked to Rollo Park today and back with Sheba. And then—I am so weak—I binge-watched Normal People because I’d heard such good things about it. And because it’s an Irish story. (I should have been reading Ove.)
Even though it’s just a love story, I loved it. I loved the writing and the lead actors. Check it out: It’s on CBC Gem.
Almost all my newly planted Basil seedlings were eaten last night. Damn slugs! All that work and care, down the gullet of living snot.
Today the mother and father Pileated Woodpeckers who visit every day to eat suet, brought their babies. They stayed for quite a while, enjoying riding on the top of the gate that gently swung back and forth in the wind.
Today is another beauty day! The dog walk this morning was lovely and now I’m up for chores. I am cleaning the hot tub today, sweeping the courtyard of a bazillion Fir castings and digging up some of the many, many Dandelions that populate the front lawn.
