It has been a while since I participated in Stream of Consciousness Saturday. Head over and get all the details! Fast summary – just write, don’t overthink what the prompt means to you.
I thought during the pandemic I would be writing and blogging more but that wasn’t the case. I’m determined to end the year stronger so doing some challenges!
Pro/Con for me at the moment are summer vacation (vacation period) and weekends. The new normal has me looking at my vacation time and planning differently. I love to travel. Especially to Europe as I love the architecture, history and more. Just exploring and walking. Love it.
I’m privileged to have paid vacation and can take time off when I want during the year. The thing is I have to use my vacation days within the current year. That leaves me currently looking at taking time off and staying home.
The Pro is I am seeing more of my own province. I am spending locally and supporting local artists and businesses. I’m putting money aside each month to purchase something from a local artist. I want to be part of the support in my community.
The Con is I’m not leaving the country. I still have so many places on my travel list to see and experience. I don’t see flying at all in 2020 and 2021 I’m actually iffy about.
I think the one thing we can do during this unprecedented time is make the most of what is right in front of us. Support our community and travel close to home. I’m sure like me you have fabulous places to see within a few hours drive. We’ve got this.
You can always start now!
