Operation Oysterhood: 12 August

OYSTERHOOD is reclusiveness or solitude, or an overwhelming desire to stay at home.

Rain. A day of editing, cover design drafts, competition planning and general crisis management. Thank goodness that most of it could happen from the warmth and safety of my bed, with catssistants all around. There was coffee.

Kamala Harris by Edwar Carey

Last night, the news of Kamala Harris. I love this portrait of the – hopefully – future VP of the USA by Edward Carey. The alternative – another four years of tangerine horror and all that it entails – is unimaginable.

Locally, our Province seems to have the worst of the pandemic behind it – now, we just need to keep doing all the things that can keep us as safe as possible going forward (mask, hand-washing, physical distance, monitoring for signs). And the rumours are that level two might be just around the corner. Goddess knows how much work still lies ahead. We will need a lot of creativity and kindness to survive the economic tragedy all around us …

The Hoghouse has a new Wednesday treat: BBQ BUNS. One can pre-order or get takeaways directly from The Hatch on Wednesdays between 5 and 7 p.m. That is what I did today. Delicious, as always.

Be kind. Wear a mask. Support local.

“Physical distancing remains one of the key strategies to curb this pandemic.”
