COVID-19 Layoff: Day Fifty-Two

Hello Winter?

Woke up this morning to the temperature being -2° and felt like -8°…in May!

All the dog walks were freezing, I actually wore my winter jacket again and because it got so cold so fast and started to snow I had a migraine most of the day that would not go away no matter what. Remember when I got burnt like a week ago? LOL

Today was a day of watching Netflix, I finished Dead to Me. It was amazing! If you haven’t watched that show, I highly suggest it. After I watched Becoming, the Michelle Obama mini documentary. I have her book, I just haven’t read it yet. After that I watched Ocean’s 8, Sandra Bullock is amazing and I love all her movies. Once Dave woke up then we watched the new Netflix show Hollywood, we started it the other day and today we finished it. It’s actually pretty good, I think it’s based on true events but I’m not sure. It looks corny but once you get into it it’s really good. Trust me.

That brought us to tonight which for some reason I finally felt like doing Dave’s expenses so I did that until 11:40, showered and now laying in bed attempting to keep my eyes open.

Tomorrow is Mother’s Day, incase any of you forgot – here’s your reminder now. Does anyone have something planned for it? Maybe a nice zoom date with your mother? Either way with all that’s going around even a call is just nice. I’m sure all mother’s would appreciate it.

Today was report day, it took me about 2 mins. Pretty sad that something that took me 4 hours to apply for, only takes 2 mins to continue. Not that I’m complaining!

Well, I’m off to bed.

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Forty-Seven

It was freezing this morning!

Being burnt doesn’t help, I probably felt way colder than I should have. I put aloe on all night, like I mean if I woke up to go to the bathroom I reapplied. It helpes a great deal on the spots that weren’t too bad, now it’s just the bad spots that I’m taking take of. That just happens to be the whole right half of my body!

I don’t know how one day it’s 20 degrees and I’m getting burnt to 5 degrees! It’s crazy but that’s the weather these days and now we may get snow? So I’ve heard. Who knows.

I didn’t do much today since yesterday was a out day. I did do laundry which sucks but it’s done and now I can figure out stuff to do tomorrow that doesn’t involve moving too much. My one leg is the worst, it looks and feels like it’s trying to split. We’ll just keep that nice and moisturized.

That’s pretty much it for today unfortunately today was definitely a boring day and I don’t have much to report. I did watch movies and tv. I watched Space Jam, the next 2 episodes of The Last Dance and then Transformers. Now I’m in bed.

Thanks for reading,

Maeg.

Dynamite Perfume

Because my perfume that I normally buy at Victoria’s Secret you can only get online I wanted to try to find something in store. Unfortunely this perfume isn’t online anymore and I’m not too sure if it’s in stores anymore. I love this spray so I’m just going to write about it anyways; I have the Belle one, it’s a great light smell!

Skin Care Favourite:

I got myself a Sephora Favourite box for dry skin because my skin sucks but who doesn’t? I tried this lip treatment not expecting it to work that well but I was shocked, it made my lips extremely soft! It is tinted so it makes your lips red because they send you the Rose one. You can get this at Sephora for $29.00.

L.L Bean Slippers

Now, these aren’t the exact pair of slippers I got but they’re similar. Canada has some pretty cold winters and I get pretty cold really fast, my boyfriend calls me the ice princess since my toes are always ice. My Mum got an L.L. Bean flyer mailed to her and I fell in love with their slippers, I went online and ordered a pair right away. These are super warm, and comfortable! I got my pair for $79.00 at L.L.Bean.com

Canadian Eh?

I don’t know if you’ve noticed but it’s fucking cold in Canada! Literally the other day it was so nice out, just a light snow covering, the next day it was cold and windy that was about it, by night time it was a full on blizzard with -30 weather. My boyfriend had to drive me home last night in the middle of the storm because I had to work this morning! It took the car 30 mins to warm up and he was scrapping the car for 10-15 mins to try and get the ice off; which was not working. The roads are completely covered in snow still, it’s still -30, windy as hell, and everyone is experiencing ice quakes or frost quakes. 

For those of you who didn’t know what a ice/frost quake was (which is okay cause neither did I), they are when it is so cold that the water on the ground or anywhere really expands and makes a very loud boom. It honestly sounds like gun shots going off, that’s how loud it is, apparently they were going off all over the GTA and people could hear it from miles away. These happened last night but it sounded like it was coming from the roof of my apartment, which is possible since it’s flat and there could be water or ice up there. 

It was so cold outside that everyone was saying that you should stay in doors if you can and only go outside if you really need too. Cab companies were not working today, schools were cancelled and even a NHL hockey game was cancelled because of the weather. Also they were saying if you were outside with exposed skin you could get frostbite in 5 mins – this is why my boyfriend picked me up from work since it’s a 15 min walk home. Everyone in Canada should have ski/snowboarding goggles so they can cover their eyes and still see when it is this cold, we all may look like idiots but it would be worth the warmth. 

Everyone stay warm if you have this crazy weather where you are!

Ice Storm 2013

It is official, the storm I was talking about my previous post has been hash tagged “ice storm 2013.” The storm got worse over right, literally every parking lot is a sheet of ice, every tree has either fallen over or parts broke off, half the city doesn’t have power and isn’t expected to get power until Christmas day. If you stand by a window you will hear cracking of a tree that is falling over, it’s actually a creepy sound. My boyfriend picked me up at 12:30 PM last night, so everyone was in their houses and there was no cars, all I could hear is the trees by the school I live fall down. I didn’t know what tree it was because they were so loud I thought they were the ones by me. Salt doesn’t do anything for the ice that is everywhere, you literally have to scrap it off if you don’t want to slip. Hydro lines have fallen down because we put the lines along the roads where the trees are so that’s why the power is off. 

Early a generator exploded and it made the sky go purple, red and blues in Toronto. It’s honestly really bad here, trees are falling on houses, people and pets. Everyone is still in the Christmas rush so they aren’t following the rule if the stop lights aren’t working, treat it as a four way stop. When I drove by the mall on my way home, the parking lot was still packed. Both my boyfriend and I work in rec centers, he is maintenance and I’m a lifeguard. He had to go into work because even though all the programs are cancelled the recs turn into safe havens, so people with no power can go there to warm up. If they need people to do first aid they could call all the lifeguards to come help out but that would only happen in a really bad situation. 

The radio here is nothing but where to go if you don’t have power, how to drive, telling everyone to go slow and don’t rush anywhere, the weather and telling everyone to stay inside. The weather for here is that the ice storm warning is over but it is still raining, it’s getting warm so it’s really foggy now but later tonight the temperature is suppose to drop so everything will be a sheet of ice again. This weather is going to be here for awhile as long as it stays this cold and even if it does get warm it will melt but at night it always drops below freezing. 

Cleaning off your car is terrible, the scrapper wasn’t even working on the car windows. My boyfriend just started to beat the window with the brush do it would crack so you can even get the scrapper to get under the ice. It worked but don’t bang too hard. My friend actually was using a blow dryer to get into her car which would work but would take all day long. 

My family is just chilling at home and getting ready for Christmas and avoiding the storm. Tomorrow people start coming over so we have to go down to meet them to keep them from falling. My family parks underground and we have a two car parking spot, tomorrow we are going to get my uncle to park there then walk up the long way so we don’t have to walk on ice. 

This is just my point of view, I know people will have a worst story to write about since trees are falling on houses and cars. Please be careful out there!
