Bad News 😦

We have been hit by the Coronavirus 😦 Well I am being very melodramatic and unfair to all those who are actually sick from the virus but I am feeling very sorry for myself. Our youngest son had a meeting in Phoenix next Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday and then he was going to come visit us for four nights. I was so excited that it was actually going to happen, it has almost happened a few times in previous years but then his meetings where changed or we had already headed home, so this was it! And then it wasn’t! Because of the Coronavirus his employer has cancelled all travel. Now I am happy that they are keeping my baby safe and to be fair I was concerned about airline travel with this virus but I really was looking forward to seeing him and showing him around our winter home.

A few days ago we had an intense half hour storm that came with hail! We have never seen hail in Yuma before and it was funny to see the green white!

So instead we will look forward to a visit with our oldest son who gave us good news last week, he and his wife are moving from Edmonton, Alberta to the lower mainland of British Columbia, a three hour drive from our home! In fact on Monday he started his new job, as the British Columbia Manager for the company he has worked for for many years, so he will be there when we stop to visit hubby’s mother at the end of the month.

We rode by this broccoli field the other day. At the end of the season they let the broccoli go to seed and then they harvest the seed for next year. It may look pretty but it does stink!

And the change to our youngest sons travel plans works out well for them because it looks like they sold their home in Edmonton on Wednesday, so since he is no longer coming down here they can now make a house hunting trip to Calgary next week. He also got a new job before Christmas as the District Manager for the Prairie Region for the company he has worked for for a long time and is being relocated to Calgary … three hours closer to us 🙂

And we came across a few white ducks. I have never seen them in the park before; actually I have never seen white ducks before.

So our children are all doing well and we can’t complain but I’m still disappointed about not having a visit in Yuma with our son. On the other side of the coin we can now start heading home next week like we had originally planned… NOPE, I’m still unhappy but I will get over it and we will get to see our older son sooner 🙂

And there was one white and black duck, never seen one of those before either.

Until next time …

  1. Sorry about the disappointments. You sound like me, you get really excited and then really let down when things don’t work out. You will get over it and the positive is that both sons are moving closer to your home!
    Glad you don’t have the virus!!

  2. Ok you scared me. We were just discussing the virus tonight and we have not been taken up by all the hype!! We are not naïve but not gullible either!! The sun will still shine tomorrow!!! Sounds like the careers are taking off real well. Congratulations to your sons. You will see them soon I’m sure.

    • I’m sorry I scared you Lorne, but they say blogs should immediately catch your attention 😊 We also are not caught up in all the virus hype but I did think about plane travel so I’m glad he is not flying. And yes we will see them in the spring when we get home.
