With the latest lockdown lifted last week (how’s that for alliteration? lol), I stopped in at Gabriel for my favorite breakfast of coffee, bacon, eggs over easy, home fries, and brown toast. Although it had only been a few weeks, felt like months since my last time there. After eating, I took my annual walk over to H&R Block to get my taxes done, and managed to get just over $200 back, which went into groceries to get us through to payday.

Finally got my haircut this past Wednesday; No. 3 all over. Felt good, and with the temperature slowly warming, not so cold on the head, although I carry a toque with me wherever I go these days, should I need it.

The AstraZeneca vaccine was finally approved today, here in Canada, and overall, the vaccine situation is slowly starting to improve, including here in Ontario. The vaccines themselves are evolving, some now able to be stored in regular refrigerators, while others only requiring one vaccination…if necessary, though two still recommended.

People still argue of how slow vaccine deliver is here in Canada, saying at the rate we’re going, it will take 3 years to reach Herd Immunity, which I just ignore now. No sense getting upset, the time will come. They’re talking about having major vaccine sites set up across the city; the closest to us would be Lansdowne Park. Stay tuned.

Was feeling a bit lonely this past week, so I wrote a couple of romantic poems. One to Dawn; still mourning, and the second to a longtime heartthrob. Despite slowing down overall, wrote a few other ones in the past few days, including one of my strongest of late, Mars Calling, also inspired by the Corona loneliness, though getting away from the COVID poems for a little while.
