How were your last few days?
Mine were largely uneventful. I get a lot of that now. Good Friday we did nothing, really. On Saturday I went to the local Sobeys to get a few items, including the Cajun spice we put on the salmon dinner that evening.
On Sunday we didn't do much, either. Slept in until nearly noon, something I did a lot of when I was a teenager, but not so much these days.
I got quite a few comments about my post on trust the other day. Thank you for writing. It was something that I had been thinking about for some time and decided to write a post about. I could go on and on about trust and the many times people have broken my trust, to the point where I wonder why I ever trust anybody over anything, but I won't. It is getting too late, and it accomplishes nothing other than to upset me.
I have other subjects that have been percolating in my head recently. Having all this time off means I can devote more time to thought, and sleep, making me wonder why I just didn't bother with working at all for those decades. Why didn't I just stay living with my parents and sit around the house all day and think and sleep? They wouldn't have liked it, but they would have tolerated it.
I do think a lot about where we will end up living. There is a tiny supply of houses out there, at inflated prices, and a pent-up demand for these homes that drives those with modest incomes out of the purchasing market. I don't know what these people will do.
A local realtor left one of those door hanger thingies on my door knob the other day saying I should contact him if I wanted to sell Casa Bevboy. I called after him as he was at the next house and told him I would be delighted to sell if we could but find a good place at a price we could manage. I mentioned the new doors and windows and the new back deck and so on. The house would go like that, but there would be no place for us to go. I can only imagine how many millions of Canadians are in our position: wanting to move, but stuck.
Yeah. I think a lot of people are stuck.
I think I will turn in now. Eyes are gritty. Need some more sleep.
See you tomorrow.
