From another fellow Canadian who lives in Ontario I really enjoyed this posting.
With the second wave soon to arrive I wish you many blessings and good thoughts
Keep up the great work and much love to everyone reading.
May we all be well protected at this time.

I was just saying to someone last week that I think that everyone should sing in a choir, it's such a powerful human connection. This is the longest time, since I was a child, that I have not had a choir to sing with in person, and I gotta tell you, it's tough. So nice to know that yours has found a way to rehearse together!!

Hi Susan, nice to meet you. I laughed out loud at Mother Pluckers, so funny! Just this a.m. I mentioned to my sisters that we have to be creative on staying peaceful in the midst of turmoil and remaining calm in chaos. To focus on the simple things in life in gratitude. Love the flour mill, I used to bake bread with fresh milled flour and it tastes awesome! Thanks for sharing.

Sounds very peaceful and satisfying to sing and bake bread. Thanks for the glimpse into your life on Saltspring Island!

Susan, so nice to see your lovely home and family and get a glimpse of your life. Had never heard of Einkorn...will have to pay attention and look for this in the future. Your part of Canada is so beautiful. I know as my sister and her family are on 10-mile point, Saanich, maybe 15 miles south of Salt Island.

Thanks for giving us a glimpse of your life, Susan. Sending you blessings and positive thoughts.

What an interesting person! I love the idea of milling your own flour and I love the name mother pluckers, :)

Nice to meet you Susan. Your life is so interesting to visit. So creative. Stay safe.

Thank you Susan - How wonderful to hear how you are getting through this time in our lives - Your life is filled with heartwarming creativity but, most of all it is helpful to hear of your frustration - it helps because it is nice to know we are not alone wanting to howl and scream and sob and laugh hysterically at our reaction to being sequestered, focused on taking care of ourselves with few to no obligations, the often touted solution to stress - hmm does it work?

I enjoyed your story, Susan. I met someone on a trip one time who lived on Saltspring Island. Her name is Gail. We stayed in touch for awhile but then lost touch. She was of Italian heritage also and if I remember correctly, owned a shoe store (?) on the island. I can’t imagine the population is huge on the island, so wouldn’t it be funny if you know/knew her? Take care and enjoy your beautiful life on the island!

Well hello there friend! Nice to see you in print. Yes, Susan is a great cook, and a wonderful singer. I personally think her choir is
one of the best on SaltSpring island. Her baking abilities are not bad either.

Thanks for acknowledging how some people withdraw and get sad during this time. I think that is where I am. This evening I told my husband we need to go out in the evenings to watch the sun set just for something that can touch my soul. Bread and jam definitely do help.

To PMJ, yes there was a Gail that owned a shoe store with her husband. He was a cobble, among other things. They sold the business, and have not seen them for awhile, have not seen anyone for a while actually. The population of SALTSPRING is approx. eleven thousand full time residents. It doubles in the summer with tourists.

Thank you all for your thoughtful notes. It
feels good to be connected through our stories and even more wonderful to see the comment from my friend Ali.
