The painter should paint not only
what he has in front of him,
but also what he sees inside himself.

The first Sunday of September and we managed to stay at the trailer overnight. The Federal Election is rapidly approaching with only 15 days left until we know how the Canadian Public judges them worthy again or not.

Today is the International Day of Charity. My grandma always said Charity starts at home. So start the day by being kind to yourself and your family. Then spread your kindness everywhere.

For some people National Cheese Pizza Day is their favorite type of Pizza Day. But not me. Load up the toppings. Mushrooms, bacon, tomatoes, peppers, onions, ham, pineapple, chicken, sausage, even anchovies…..I love them all. But do start with a thick layer of cheese or double cheese.

Enjoy this last Sunday of summer holidays. Remember to watch out for the school buses on Tuesday. ❤

With all the inflated numbers and predictions I thought it was time to revisit the real numbers as per Google News:

LocationTotal casesNew cases (last 60 days)Cases per 1 million peopleRecoveredDeaths
United States6,218,90018,8713,391,087187,698
LocationTotal casesNew cases (last 60 days)Cases per 1 million peopleRecoveredDeaths

Predictions for the USA include numbers as high as over 400,000 deaths by the end of 2020 from COVID-19.

We’ve been so lucky in Ontario. In London-Middlesex we’ve seen days without new cases. But fear of Corona Virus has mandated the use of facial masks and still has limits on the number of people permitted to gather. Churches still remain closed and School openings have been delayed.

I went to the playground with my grandson yesterday. Although the equipment hasn’t changed it’s very sad to see the loneliness in my grandson’s eyes as he is no longer permitted to mingle with the other children and must keep his distance. The public washrooms aren’t open, so small children duck behind trees to pee.

My heart breaks for all the children that are learning not to trust others, keep their distance and constantly wash their hands.
