A year ago today…..

…we crossed into Canada after a very long driving day. We had rushed to Canada from Mexico because of Covid. You can read my post here of our arrival into Canada.Who would have thought that here we are a full year later still wearing masks and having to follow restrictions?  It was just a few weeks ago that we were finally allowed to have up to ten people in our yard as long as they were masked and socially distanced. We were all so very hopeful that the virus would be under control quickly. The majority of us are still waiting for the vaccine. What does the future hold for us? The Canadian/US border is still closed, that has never ever happened before, a full year 😯  Many say that it will not open until the fall but with the variants who knows? We remain hopeful that by the end of October we can cross the border and travel to Mexico. But how will the variants affect us and the world? All we can do is to continue to take it one day at a time.

I celebrated the one year anniversary by painting my toes. I have not painted them since we arrived home last year. I am hopeful, so today was the day.

We are so fortunate that these two have come into our lives, just flour weeks ago. Our spirits have lifted and we have a bright future ahead of us even if we have to stay in Canada.

Our chocolate stash is always entertaining us. Every time that Colin gets on his knees they climb up:)

A week ago today we were treated to this lovely sunset. To me it shows the promise of things to come.

    What a year it has been. And its not over yet. The variants scare me even though we have both been vaccinated. The governor of AZ has lifted all restrictions in the state but we won’t be joining in the revelry.

    What a joyful handful you have with your chocolate stash.

    We are still hopeful that we can cross the border into Canada at some point this year!

  3. This is a world that none of us ever imagined we would see or be a part of.
    A Lot more cute puppy pics.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It’s about time.

    I never thought a year ago that the world would still be the same a year later! And the way the variant is going I’m not holding my breath that the borders will be open this fall 🙁

    But you are so lucky you got your chocolate stash, they are such cuties!

  5. Right about this time last year it was announced that the pandemic would not go away so soon and it would last into this year and perhaps even next year and we didn’t want to believe it. It is hard to comply with the restrictions and to wait it out.
    Your two little puppies at least give you purpose to stay home. They look so very cute and I bet they give you much joy every day.
