I am choosing not to get into all the hype, moaning, and complaining about the current world situation. Have we been massively inconvenienced by this virus, yes, just like millions of others. However, for those of us that have chosen a nomadic like lifestyle, honestly, this is just one more adventure. If anything I am having more trouble coping with our excessively brown, cold spring. But, like everything else it will improve.
Housesitting is about adaptability and looking for opportunities. Fortunately for us we happened to be in our “home” city when everything went sideways. The support and assistance we have received from friends and family has been uplifting.
Our next two short term sits disappeared within days of each other. All expected and reasonable decisions by all parties involved.
We are currently hunkered down at Karen’s Mom’s place (man am I lucky to get along so well with my Mother-in-law!) and starting each day looking for wildlife out the front window.
On the house sitting front we are curious and optimistic to see what is going to develop over the next year. I, for one, believe we will slowly return to “normal”, albeit with minor changes in behaviour and procedures learned from this current situation. As opportunities present themselves we will pursue them, and who knows what direction these opportunities will take us. We will adapt and we will continue to enjoy our lives. I hope all of you do as well.
