What a year 2020 has turned out to be! Although there has been lots of "downs" for many of us I am learning to focus on the good things in my life. I have a loving family, a safe and warm home, plenty of healthy food available, a caring community around me, ready access to health services and I am fortunate to live in a province that has put public safety before politics during this time of COVID.

I have sold the dream home that my DH and I built, left my dearly loved gardens and rural community and have bought and moved into a condo in the seaside community of Eastern Passage. I have a small garden space I am itching to develop ASAP, access to opportunities for outdoor exercise, volunteerism and a choice of nearby universities and libraries for learning. My family, apart from my daughter, is nearby and hopefully if and when COVID has settled a trip to Scotland to see her will be possible again.

    I just LOVED your comment on BROOKLYN-BORN's blog!

    I did something similar to what your daughter did! I aspired to be a vet but ended up working on humans instead.
    I think the dogs and horses would have been better.

    I thought serviceberries and Saskatoons were the same. I had only researched this last month after I took pictures of a tree and used an app to identify it. I will have to read a little more. I had never even heard the term serviceberry before. The app also called them June berries. I love learning new things!

    Thank you for reading my blog “A Tree Grows in Brooklyn”
    So many different examples of resilience shared in the comments.
    What a beautiful idea to plant a memorial tree.
    We planted a tree when each of our children and grandchildren were born.

    I've been without a dishwasher for several years, but coffee maker.....big no. I forgot about my son's french press. DOH That would have solved my problems.
