At Day’s End


Just counting blessings

At the end of a perfect day

Thankful for my friends




A born and raised Midwesterner who traveled to Oregon in 2006 via the Oregon Trail route, fell in love with Oregon and now call it home. I am retired and pursuing my life long dream of becoming a Freelance Inspirational Writer.

  1. What would we do without friends? I think that’s one of the main thing these lock-downs have been interfering with. I know we can phone, text, communicate on social media etc. but it’s not the same as getting together and hugging and chatting and just having a great time together.

    1. Thankful I have close neighbors and we can visit in person daily even though social distancing or at times masked. We still can sit and visit or commune outside while gardening. Makes it all much more bearable than total quarantine as previously.

      1. I’m glad to hear that. Ontario is supposed to be off the emergency designation but now masks are mandated anywhere in public places where they weren’t when we were considered in an emergency state. Doesn’t make any sense to me. I am still not wearing a mask because it is too difficult to breathe with one on. So far no one has said anything or stopped me from shopping at the grocery store. I understand some grocery stores won’t let you in without one. We have had a group of people protesting this for the past 14 weeks now, but the government doesn’t seem to be listening to them.

      2. We do have a mask mandate for public places. But there is an exception for those who can’t wear them. My neighbors and I don’t wear them at home or while visiting we just maintain a safe distance and it seems to work out fine as we all know each other so well. But I do wear the mask while out shopping as it doesn’t bother me to wear one.
