Welcome to the April 2021 version of What's Up Wednesday, also known as "The One Where It's Groundhog Day." As always, I'm linking up with Shay at Mix and Match Mama and Sheaffer at Sheaffer Told Me To to talk about what we've been up to lately.
April 2021 feels A LOT like April 2020 in our province. We're back in a strict lockdown and our province's daily Covid numbers are really high. The main differences between this April and last April are that online learning is a full school day (for all of last spring it was only an hour an a half per day), the library is open for curbside pickup (thank goodness!!!), and more and more people we know are getting vaccinated. Plus MLB is happening. Yay for being able to watch the Blue Jays! But we can't see our friends, do anything (church, dance, etc) in person, or buy non-essential items in stores -- like office supplies or clothing.
I went back and re-read my April 2020 WUW post (you can find it here), and honestly, a lot of my answers are the same. It really does feel like Groundhog Day.
What I'm loving... I'm loving that more and more people I know are able to get vaccines. Honestly, this is the thing which brings me hope. As Canada has more access to vaccines, and more people get them, the closer we are to ending this third wave and getting our lives back.
What I'm looking forward to next month... I'm really hoping our current lock down ends next month. I'm hopeful the kids will be able to go back to school. I'm hopeful the construction next door will be able to move towards the inside and not be so invasive. I'm hoping our weather warms up some more and I can plant all all my annuals. There's a lot of hope. It's such a tricky thing because honestly, I feel pretty hope-less this month, but despite the odds, I still have hope things will get better.
