Today is the International Day for Preventing the Exploitation of the Environment in War and Armed Conflict. Such a long name for saying wars cause devastation.

I prefer to sit in a good chair with a book and a cheap glass of wine as I celebrate both Book Lovers Day and National Wine Tasting Day.

My new floors are installed. We got a new desk for the laundry room so the kitty litter box is out of sight and they have a platform to eat on where the dog can’t steal their food. We bought a new laundry tub and it is almost installed. Then I need to re-nail my 1/4 round trim. I can’t wait to get the furniture back in place. To have a washing machine and dryer again is now my goal.

The first Friday in November 2020 is already here, but the weather is too fine to be November. We moved our summer trailer to the new site for next year. The next 3 days are almost 18C with sunshine, more like late summer than mid-autumn. The trees are for the most part naked except for a few hardy yellows that remain. The geese are practicing for their journey south and many Canadians are wishing they could join the geese, but the Canada/USA border remains closed for non-commercial travel. Many Canadian snowbirds are scrambling to find alternate accommodations for winter. We are very lucky that I refuse to sell my 1890’s yellow brick house. To me our house, that’s been here for 130 years reminds me of stability in an ever changing world. My home isn’t historically significant and has been modernized on the interior, but it is the place I call home.
