Joining a "Bubble"

   We are now allowed to connect with one other family group while still maintaining social distance, so today I visited my family in Markham for a back yard barbecue. It's the longest trip I've taken in weeks (about 30 km there and back) and the roads were significantly quieter than usual. I was honoured to be chosen to join their family bubble.

   We had lunch outside with me on one side of the table and the family on the other. But we were close enough to talk. No hugs, though!

It was sunny and quite warm, hence the shade. Dave (SIL) manned the barbecue, Elliot baked a loaf and Judy and Natalie made corn and a Caesar salad. I brought a baked bean casserole.

James, youngest grandson, made this delicious dessert. Light and fluffy, not too sweet, with just the right amount of fruit. No need for supper tonight!

    1. It wasn't too hard to maintain social distancing outdoors.
