I am still on my quest to use up travel size items that I started back in January. Even more important now. I didn't realize when I got this free sample from my dentist's office it was kids toothpaste. Bubblegum flavor - yuck. Oh well, I need to use it and will not waste it.

We took our long walk with Buddy yesterday. There is a lovely forested path a few blocks from our house. The trees are hairy with moss from the wet winter. It was supposed to be mainly sunny but we got a sprinkle of rain when out walking. Although there are many people who walk on this path everyone was giving lots of distance to each other.

We had pushed Buddy's grooming until this week as originally this is the week we were to fly away to Mexico and he was supposed to go to the groomers (owners of his parents) for dog sitting. It wasn't to be so we rebooked an appointment for grooming. Thursday I got a text saying the groomers was closing. As poodle hair continues to grow without shedding it was necessary for us to do a small trim so he could see again as his eyebrows were hanging over his eyes. Poor dog, now he looks like a 5 year old got at him with some crafting scissors. I also gave myself a small trim too but am not sharing that photo :) Hubby's up next. He is so picky and yet wants me to try trimming his hair as we both were scheduled for haircuts last week and now that's off indefinitely. I am a little scared about that one. I have ordered thinning scissors from Amazon (for all of us) but who knows when they will get here.

I took a mental health walk with Buddy yesterday. I admit to being a little overwhelmed with everything right now. There is a fine line between needing to know what is important and information overload. The weather was lovely and there were lots of ducks about. Soon there will be ducklings as well.

After a very turbulent week for everyone I wanted to share something positive for us. What better year to beautify your yard than the one when you have to stay at home a lot. I am so so happy we made the decision to install a brick patio this year to extend our living space to the outside a little more. We removed part of the grass in our back yard but there is still about 50 feet of grass to the right for us and the dog to enjoy. Four men, 3 trucks and a day and a half and it is done. All except a topcoat that they will come back and do on Tuesday or Wednesday that we paid extra for - that will give it a bit of a more finished look. They have to wait until the overnight temperature is above zero for that and it has been cold here this week with frosts every day but it should be 12 degrees celcius by Wednesday.

Yes, these are trying times. It seems like the world is a bit upside down on just about everything. Don't let it stress you. Why you ask? Because whatever will be will be. Nothing you do or say or scream about will make one bit of difference. Does that mean you do nothing?
