During these unusual days I have discovered a new best friend....myself. I live alone with my cat who is very gracious and lets me share her house. When this pandemic began, I was very nervous but as time has past, I am coping very well. I have a daughter and son who visit and bring groceries for me. Those six feet away visits mean so much, we will catch up with hugs when this horror is over.

I set myself a challenge each day to learn something new and so far am excited with learning to crochet and calligraphy. I plan on making masks for the hospital care-givers and finally, might have time be able to study and learn how to use the computer.

I listen to the news and read all I can about what is happening to our world. From the sadness and uncertainty of our days, I do see a great more kindness shown to each other,now we have a common enemy.I was a child of the war and remember how people rallied around each other and the lovely humor that was shared.

Our Community Care look after we seniors so well. Frozen meals, whatever help you need in any corner of our life .And a means so much.

And reading, what would we do without our library? I now use "Libby" ( a digital service) and have a wonderful selection of books from here and around our province. An absolutely perfect idea.

In many ways I miss the outside world but delighted that the world has come to visit me.

So no, I am not lonely, very busy in fact. I shall continue to enjoy this different way life in my little nest, my haughty cat and new best!
