What is it about going away that makes me sleepy?  It didn’t help that the people above us in our unit were rather noisy last night. They started playing music around 10:00. Actually, I am one of those people who is always tired.  No matter how much sleep I get I am tired. It isn’t low thyroid or iron or B 12. I eat really well and take supplements.  Most days I go to bed at the same time and get up at the same time. Part of being tired all time is depression but even when my mood is in a good place I feel tired. My mom was the same.

This was funny.  So, we are on one of the smaller islands right now. Life is very, very laid back.  People wear overalls and rubber boots. Women don’t wear makeup. There are two grocery stores and a coffee shop. There are also two restaurants. A pizza place and a pub. This time of the year everything closes down early. Yesterday afternoon we had a nap and woke up late and first went to the pizza place for dinner. It had already closed. We then went to the pub and the parking lot was packed. We snuck into a parking spot of our own creation. We were told that they were no longer serving food. Why? Because there was a town meeting. And the topic? (OMG. You can’t make this stuff up. I want to move here.) “Oh, Rats! The Nature of Rodents and the Art of Trapping and Controlling Them.”  What they intend to do with the rats is not known as we didn’t stay.

Here are some pictures.

The water really is that colour.

One more funny thing. This place has sugar ants. Most people would complain. What do we do? We feed them! 😁

  1. Beautiful photos, dear friend. And you look radiant! I was feeling tired a lot but in my case it was my thyroid. Since the doctor increased my meds for the thyroid I have been fine, thankfully. And the depression has kept at bay as well, which makes me happy and relieved. Warm hugs and much love to you. 🙂

  2. Such a lovely picture. Were you on Gabriola Island? When I lived in Victoria I always wanted to take a trip over to Gabriola but we never did. Maybe someday we will go back and do that.

  3. Glad to read that you’re eating well, but sorry to read that you’re always so tired and that your mom was too. Love the topic of the meeting and that you wrote, you couldn’t make this stuff up and wow, you guys are so cute together in that photo.

    • I love small islands. The people are very down to earth and authentic. They focus on things that are important to me like socialism and the environment.
