The Prettiest Flower

As it was a half decent day, we decided to visit the garden centre/nursery. It was supposed to be 17 C, but it felt more like 10 C.



As you can see, Becky is interested in pink and purple. She put in her own pink and purple flower bed a couple of years ago, but with all the changes, hasn’t added to it. It feels like we have a home again, after twelve months of moving around. I think we can put some roots down (ha, ha) and make some plans. Becky seems to agree. She carried on shopping…



Anyone home?

This is what we bought. A lot of pink and purple, no surprises there, but we also picked up a grape vine. What fun! I’m tired of planting blueberries and having them chewed to crap by the rabbits. We’ll see if the grapes are hardier. Becky chose some “Banana” potatoes, probably because they make her laugh. “What’s next”, she asked, “strawberry potatoes”? She’s a funny girl.

I packed the van and told Becky she couldn’t move.

And we’re home.

It’s pouring with rain again, so I’m glad we went out while it was dry. Becky has asked if she can help plant, so we’ll have to wait till the ground dries up a bit. Maybe in June!!!

I’ve never written two posts in one day, but the staff problem is still a bit funky, so I thought I’d write while I have the time. I like Sunday nights. It’s like the calm before the storm. Wait a minute, it IS the calm before the storm…

    If you are having staffing problem have you contacted your local CCAC? They should help if you have any problems. Community Care Access Centre is there to help.

      We were with CCAC originally. When funding became available, we were told by CCAC that we had to take it. Each region seems to have its own rules. Here in Peel, CCAC seems to be used for short-term recovery only, and not for long-term care. Thanks for the suggestion.

        Actually I am in Oakville and have been receiving care for 11 years through CCAC. I need help getting into and out of bed so not showing up is not an option. Are you funding the care alone?

      • chebandbecky says:

        It’s all Ministry funding, whether it’s CCAC, individualized or outreach services. That’s why you can only have one at a time. No double dipping.

        You’re in Halton. When we were in Oakville, CCAC only provided care for Becky when I was injured. The rest of the time, nothing. She would be under child regulations at that point. Peel gave us four days a week of care with Becky as a child. She had to be transferred to adult services when the new funding for outreach services became available. I was told that she could not receive long-term services as an adult. Seniors are different again. So it depends on age and region. We’ve also lived in Wellington, which was totally different as well. Confused. So are we.

        I’m just glad you’re getting the care you need. 🙂

  4. Looks like a fun day!

  5. look at that happy face…. 🙂
