The number of new COVID-19 cases is rising steeply here in NS – we’re seeing the effect of community spread with the highly transmissible B117 variant, so public health has imposed a new lockdown in an effort to slow the rate of infection.
However, we’re being encouraged to be outside to enjoy the spring weather – go walking, hiking, have small groups (of five people observing social distancing guidelines), just continue with the public health protocols.
Yesterday afternoon was lovely and sunny (if a bit windy) so the knitters/stitchers decided to get together for an hour or two outside.
We tried the grassy space beside the building where we gathered during the summer but the wind was strong and nippy so we retreated to Ruby’s patio – all five of us. Ruby couldn’t resist offering a snack!
Just getting out and laughing together was liberating.
Next week I hope the weather will be a bit warmer so more of us can gather on the large grassy space beside the building in clusters of five.
