COVID-19 Layoff: Day Seventy-Eight & Seventy-Nine

Day Seventy-Eight:

This day was pretty uneventful. I honestly don’t really remember what I did. The weather has been pretty hot again so Drax hasn’t wanted to go on very many walks, even went I do take him out to pee he gets over heated and just lays down for a couple of hours.

I did go to Walmart to get migraine stuff since I knew the rain/pressure was coming not that anything is working right now but I’ll live.

Day Seventy-Nine:

Welp, a little more activity today but not much, I drove to Vaughan to pick up products for my family then drove to my Mum’s house to drop them off. It was something small but it was good to get out of the house with a task and not just going to Walmart to see what I can find.

Today I decided I was going to do a plant update!

Here we have all our herbs and leafy greens, they are growing wild to the point we have trimmed them and used them in our food. Some of them have died and others got burnt in the sun. The garlic grows underground so we might pull that up soon but I need to check how many days it takes!

This is our bin of lettuce, it’s still growing slowly but this was the last thing we planted so it’s got to catch up!

This is my pumpkins! I’m super excited that I have flowers out of it now, shitty part is bees will be around until the flowers turn into the pumpkin but it’s been too hot to sit out there when the sun is directly on my balcony anyways. Usually we can sit on the balcony around 2:30pm and on, it’s not too bad.

Drum roll on the sunflowers! Dave’s is on the left and mine is on the right. Mine is still taller but Dave’s is catching up! We need to get bigger pots for them eventually as mine seems to be growing out of that one quickly. It’s a pick em at this point! (cheer for mine, postive vibes!)

That’s all for the plants! I’ll keep update the more things change, right now I’m just excited for my pumpkins, maybe they’ll actually grow for me this time! Last time my step-dad tricked me thinking it grew but he just bought a small pumpkin…yea, I know! It was a good laugh though.

That’s all for today.

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Sixty-Five

Good evening!

The weather was absolutely beautiful today and a little bit on the hot side! It was way to hot for Drax today so his walks were limited but later on at night we took him out and he was having a blast in the cool air.

Drax actually got a new collar since he’s growing so much his old one was too tight and he only wore it outside since it has his tags on it. Dave also got him a cooling mat, this thing is pretty cool and even I want to lay on it!

Today I did go to Walmart to get shirts and yoga pants since my other ones are more for louging around. There’s one shirt I need to return or just lose the weight and I love the yoga pants. Most likely will be going back for more of those!

Today I said I would do a plant update so here it goes!

So here we have our regular plants, arugula, spinach, garlic and rosemary. They are growing wild and I’m excited.

This is my pumpkin that is growing crazy! I know it’s going to be super vine like before I get any pumpkins so I’ll just keep taking care of it!

We planted some lettuce! They are just little babies but I’m excited for this. Never planted this before so we’ll see how this goes! Now, the moment you’ve all been waiting for….who has the best sunflower…still in progress…drumroll please!

On the left we have Dave’s and on the right is yours truely. Baby sunflowers! So cute but it’s turning into a close competition! They are standing on their own currently and I will most definetly need to get bigger pots for them ass they get bigger.

That’s all I have for today, not much else was done!

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Forty

BIG 4 0!

Today marks 40 days in lockdown/quarantine/whatever you want to call it. Slowly but surely I’m going crazy and super bored, even Dave is bored and that never really happens.

This morning was the usual routine Drax wakes me up by laying on me, he gets fed, I water the plants and we go on our morning walk then I made breakfast. At some point I had energy and decided to go on a 2k walk with Drax but he still wasn’t tired! I swear he is the only dog that isn’t sick of walks.

Today Dave and I watched 2 movies and 2 episodes of The Last Dance since they came out today. Go check that out especially if you miss sports.

Not much else was done today, I did decide to wait on the plant update since the stuff Dave just planted hasn’t sprouted yet, maybe tomorrow I’ll update on the sunflowers!

Thanks for reading,

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Thirty-Three

Happy 4/20!

Today was a blur, I didn’t do much so there’s not much to report. I did get invited to his FitBit challenage that is pretty cool, it’s bingo. I have a month to complete it but it’s insane numbers since the person who invited me does A LOT of steps. It’ll be fun though I guess and I will keep you posted!

I did say I was going to give you updates on my plants, so here it is!

Starting with the two pumpkins, they got moved to a large pot since they were getting so big so fast! They’re the mini pumpkins, not those big ones since I only got so much room for these bad boys.

Next is the arugula, garlic, spinach, rosemary and cilantro! They got moved to a medium sides one since they’re still small still and need more time to grow before they get in they’re regular pot.

And as promised, the sunflower contest. On the left, we have Posty who is CLEARLY winning at the moment and S.F. Malone on the right. Dave is convinced I’m cheating some how but mine just grew fast then his!

That’s all for today, I hope everyone has a good 4/20 if you’re into that!
