We had warmth and sun and now we are in the cold mode again. But this weekend the sun is supposed to be out which will make us all happy and hopefully in the garden.

Happy birthday to all who celebrated their day this past week. Big balloons go out to Maria Soares, who celebrated March 28; Luis Cardosa, Kemily De Oliveira, Clarice Lima and Cody Noyes March 29; Nicholas Carpenter, Matheo Gomes and Brynn Savva, March 31; and to Savannah Mathews who celebrates her day today April 3.

I think it is safe to say that we are going through some different times. Life as we know it has come to a complete halt, but all for the best and health of ourselves and the ones we love.

We heard about days of quarantine in the past but they never had it like we have it now. Even though we are in the confines of our homes people are still working due to the internet, we still get the news with the reporters in their homes still reporting, and we can still talk to our family and friends over Facebook, Snapchat Video and Zoom.

Thank you to Dan Cassidy who is trying his hardest to keep trivia night going on Facebook. It was fun and there are a few glitches that have to be worked out but we all had a good time. I believe he will be doing it under the Barn and Bistro so keep an eye out for the notice if you would like to join in.

Debbie MacInnis reported that the forsythia in Katama is blooming. I have daffodils and hyacinths blooming. I have noticed green on the hydrangeas, and the trees are starting to bud out. Now I am just waiting for my peas to poke their heads out of the ground.

I hope you are all healthy and safe. A big thank you to all our healthcare workers for your care and devotion to your community. We are forever grateful.

Have a great week and keep the home candles burning.
