COVID AND WEATHER

Yesterday, we had our second Covid shots.  It feels good even though we have been Covid free up here.  The Government is talking about going straight into Lockdown if just one case of the Delta variant is found here.  With things seemingly out of control in Sydney it could easily spread here.

We have had an extremely wet winter.  This is the first year we have had to cancel so many Parkinson walks and, if we have a fine day, I go into Washing mode and usually do three loads so that I can get them line dry.

Spring does seem to be on the way though with freesias and daffodils coming into bloom and it is definitely getting light earlier.

  1. I think I just heard your PM saying that all borders will now be closed until the New Year. Is that right? Quite drastic, but Covid requires drastic measures.

    1. Staying as it is I think. Kiwis can still return but have to go into isolation for a fortnight.

  2. Line drying sheets and clothes makes them smell so fresh. I am in the USA and am fully vaxed and getting tired of isolating and masking. Especially seeing photos of Obama's unmasked party. Different sets of rules.

    1. I always line dry when possible (and it usually is). Hadn't heard about Obama's party. No masks here.

  3. Good to hear that your Spring is on the way, even though I'm well aware that if your end of the see-saw is on the way up, ours is certainly descending.

    1. Winter seems to have gone quickly this year although it is not over yet. Of course, as things improve here, as you say they deteriorate there.

  4. Cograts on being fully vaccinated. At least you can move around a little freer

  5. Well done on getting your second jags. It doesn't mean 100% protection, but it is a vast improvement on none, whatever happens.
    It does seem to have been a wet winter for you and much colder further south too..

    1. Yes, there has been snow and colder further south. Good to have earlier daylight as I don't like rising in the dark.

  6. I had my 2nd one on Wednesday, good to get it done and dusted, no major side effects other than a sort of sore arm.
