Living Small – Local Colour

Our exercise walks are taking us through some new neighbourhoods as well as our old favourites. Given social distancing requirements, we try to walk where we have options to pass fellow walkers safely. If these do not present themselves readily, we cross the street, change direction or simply find a place to pull over and let them go by at least 2 meters away.

In our wanderings we notice that one stay at home project seems to be tissue paper stained glass. Some of the patterns are truly creative. In other areas, people have left their Christmas decorations up for a spot of brightness in the otherwise bleak isolation days. We even found a missed Easter egg.

In the end, it is the little things that matter and we all need to slow down sometimes and appreciate that. Stay well, my friends.

    1. I can only imagine how difficult it is to keep the children busy when they are stuck inside. Glad they are becoming creative. Thanks for reading and enjoy your weekend. Allan

  1. We went out for a walk today and were delighted to see many beautiful kids paintings displayed in the windows. Living small and exploring near home has been a real joy for us. Thanks for sharing and have a good day 😀 Aiva

    1. Apparently, they are all over the Pinterest sites. Who knew. Makes me want to go out and get some tissue paper to colour these bleak times a little brighter. As to the egg, I am with you. Not interested in giving it a look. Stay well. Allsn

      1. I googled how to do it, but our lockdown is so strict that we can’t go out for craft supplies. Food and medicine only. But at least the virus is getting under control here. Take care and stay safe.

    1. For sure. Not sure how you would have an Easter Egg hunt under these conditions. When our kids were small, we started off hiding eggs in the house, then as they grew older, around the neighbourhood and finally all over town. Ahhhh, the good old days. Enjoy the weekend, Lynette. Allan

    1. Hey Jane. Yes, from time to time, we all need a wakeup call. Lets just hope we remember the lessons we learned along this path. Thanks so much for reading and commenting. Allan
