"Routine" ​ 😁 ​day in lockdown... how was yours?


Recommended Posts

Our DD in Toledo is getting invaded with crickets.

 

She catches at least 5-10 a day in her house.

 

She tried the Molasses trick (Molasses in flat pan by damp areas) , but they just seem to breed.

 

Here's to the plaques of 2020.

Well kinda sorta, just our seasonal migration.

 

Be healthy.

We worked from home whole "lockdown", although I am not sure we could call it a lockdown as we were not locked in our homes.

We would work whole day and then walk around neighborhood.

 

On the weekends we would drive to Cape Code. It is our ocean place, 45 minutes from us and just watched ocean go buy.

 

In the summer we started camping and decided that we are missing 5-6 cruises this year so we can/should improve our camping experience and we bought camper van

 

Actually it was just a regular cargo Ford Transit 250, but we are converting it into a camper

As we are really missing our cabin and Caribbeans we decided to decorate it accordingly

Whatever happened to those anyway?  Such hype about it...and then nothing?  🤔


I think they were replaced by the election-eve asteroid . 
Done with bugs. 
 

Stay healthy

Thank you

We will probably make it to Florida for camping someday. Love campgrounds we saw (on internet so far) on Florida Keys.

You are not alone in the fact you love camping as an alternative.  RV sales (both new and used) has skyrocketed the last few months.  It's a much more of Covid safer way to travel.   

 

Thus, as we have found out....many of the RV parks are filled up months in advance.  We were able to score a couple of weeks at a Private park on Marathon Key the last two weeks of October (wanted November), but our usual...the Florida state parks (there were four...now three)...were completely booked.  Getting really tough to book those state parks in Florida now, have to be on the "trigger" to hit reserve button online at the exact opening of each day at 11 months in advance, and right at 8 am.

Same in UK. Soon as lockdown lifted its been almost impossible to book cottages or river boat holidays  as most people booked UK holidays instead of foreign trips. Getting a little easier now for hotels, but self catering places still fully booked

Are grass hoppers worst than the killer bee?

I don’t know it it is true or not, but an old neighbour to our place in Alberta, said that the grass hoppers would be so thick on the roads some years cars would slide off of into the ditch like it was ice.

Sticking with the bug theme, yesterday I saw 3 preying mantises in the garden within minutes.  
 

Maybe tomorrow I will film the wasp nest in slow motion. Ooh, the days are exciting.

This one below looks to have recently eaten it’s mate.
