Mother’s Day

National Clean Your Room Day


Happy Mother’s Day 2020.  As we continue to keep our distance celebrations this year will be slightly different from previous years as many will be doing lane way greetings from 6 feet (2 meters) away.  I know many of us will break the rules and give our mothers a hug.

Porte Photos has bookings for Porch Photos, as some families are celebrating Mother’s Day with their families at home.

Usually, my family celebrates by going for breakfast at Melbourne Legion and all posing for a picture outside before we go our separate ways.  With the “no more than 5 people” and distancing limits there is no breakfast at any of the local Legions or Restaurants.

A little good news, there were no new COVID-19 cases in Middlesex County or Deaths yesterday.  It looks like we’re flattening the curve and on our way to recovery.  Restrictions are slowly being lifted as everyone is being cautious and hoping to avoid a second wave.  Many of the stores that are opening require customers to wear face masks.

Tomorrow most of the Provincial Parks will be open, free of charge day use for the remainder of the month with the rest of the Provincial Parks being opened on Friday.  No bathrooms will be available and the beaches will remain closed.  I can see there will be a lot of “squatting in the woods” as people hike or bike and keep their distance.
