    M in Oz The way I taught myself is using 68 F being 20 C and then add or subtract 18 F for every 10 C variation. Most remember 32 F as 0 C but I find it more useful to remember my favorite temperature which is 68 F or 20 C. All the in-betweens most with fractions, I just round off.

    Saturday is reading newspaper day.

    Tracey - Edie was the worst offender. She is finding the physical separation the most difficult. Acting up is her way of dealing with the stress.
    They went swimming at the next town over yesterday. They had to book a session two weeks ahead!!! They found when they arrived that only two families were allowed in the pool at the same time. So they had half the pool to themselves. Edie said it was the best thing ever about coronavirus. :D

    Tomorrow night Edie has a party to go to, but their mum has organised a House Of Horrors at home for the others. They showed us the decorations they had all made. <3 Bea has been counting down the days!

    Rain, wind. Rain, wind. :s It's forecast to cheer up later next week.

    Love Heather UK xxxxxxxx

    I think of temps in celcius.

    However ... a really quick way to think of it is ...

    0 is 30-ish
    5 is 40-ish
    10 is 50-ish
    15 is 60-ish
    20 is 70-ish

    and then it kind of falls apart.

    The 10C for 50 F is accurate and easy to remember so just add or subtract 18 F for every 10 C. Use 9 F for 5 C and that will give a fairly accurate conversion. Example 15 C is 59 F. Using 1.8 degree F for every 1 degree C is good for the in-betweens. 11 C is 51.8 F or 52 is close enough for my purposes. 21 C is 69.8 F or rounding off to 70 F works for me. I like celsius because of the larger temperature variation in 1 degree.

    Heather- Beautiful door and sidelights! Totally understand the door dilemma (drafts v not wanting to buy a new door). With your beautiful stained glass window, it would be better to find someone who can take their time and replace the window into a door that fits. In the meantime, this is what Tim and I did with our current front door (until we have $$ for a new one). https://www.familyhandyman.com/project/how-to-stop-door-drafts-around-entry-doors/ The weather stripping works really well, and we didn't have to mess with removing any of the brad strips. You do need to push with a bit more effort to get the door to close tightly, but well worth the $20 for materials and the bit of work it took to install them.

    For me today: grocery shop, putting Christmas lights up, yard clean up of branches, winterize the house. All kind of mundane (except the lights), but needs to be done. Temps today look to be in the high 40s and sunny (I will take that) Tomorrow is looking to be windy, overcast and high 30s-low 40s. Paperwork for me, tomorrow.

    I will attempt to put Halloween pics of the kids in a spoiler because there are a few of them. I have never used a spoiler so we will see how this goes. lol There is a pic of eight of the kids (most out of costume), then a pic of about six of them in costume, there is a pic of the oldest kiddo who arrived late, and then a pic of Tim holding (his favorite, Peyton). They spent a lot of time together wherever it was a little quieter, yesterday. He spoils her terribly!

    I grew up cold and was never warm in the Winter unless my Dad was home and had the fire going well, Mom couldn’t keep fires going well. We keep our house warm for most people about 20C, but I refuse to be cold when it’s not necessary.

    My BF whose husband had to have the emergency surgery 2 weeks ago she was complaining about having to be responsible for the wood stove. I told her that I would never rely on wood hear again. I love the feel of it but not the work, or the upkeep of keeping it going.

    Heather - surprisingly Michaela was the one most affected by Covid in our family although it was Jonah that actually lost more freedoms. Michaela did not react as well as he did.
    I quite agree with Edie, wouldn’t that be marvellous having half a pool to yourself?

    My daughter and her best friend are doing a scavenger hunt for the kids, then they are watching a “scary” movie. Since the little girls are 4 the movie choice is Coco. Jonah will be allowed to stay up later and enjoy a bit scarier movie with the adults.

    Kelly - what a bunch of cuties!

    We are supposed to get warmer weather this week and I’m so happy for a little reprieve from the cold.

    I read that the small town I’m from in NB has its first case of Covid in the school. This is a bit scary for us as our niece and her children that go to the school are living with Rodger’s parents currently. I hope they don’t get it.

    My Goddaughter’s daughter who is 4 now has to go for a test because her preschool teacher has tested positive.

    Machka- My phone has a world clock feature. I use it regularly to call my adult children who live in different time zones than me & one another. I have an app called convert light. I use it for converting temperature most often—I use Farenheit v Celcius. I downloaded it years ago and use it now and then. It also works for currency, energy, BTU, calories, time zone, and other things. It was a free app, and they’d love me to pay for the full list of things. I don’t need that level of info in my daily life. :noway: :smiley:

    Allie- BRRRR! 28F is cold. It is currently 35F here and heading for a high of 60F. We haven’t had a hard frost yet in 2020. Global warming seems very real this year. :ohwell:


    I’m set for trick or treat today. Our little neighborhood kids will have goodies at my house. I’ll encourage them to have more than one. We’re offering Reece’s Peanut butter Cups and M&Ms.

    Just realized that today is Halloweenie. That my personal feeling about it.

    Oct. 31, 2020 Three things that give me hope for the future

    1. Completing another journey around the sun and being wiser
    2. The amazing advances in virology accomplished this year
    3. My diversified friends and community that have pulled together

    Fae shutting down early despite being set back an hour

    @Flea, I'm not only really sad about how people follow or don't follow health measures, but more about all that we are losing and are going to lose. Students around 20 years old, are missing part of their "normal" youth. For people with comfortable families and homes, maybe no big deal or even a welcome break, but for less favoured people (cramped homes, complicated family situations, lack of means, etc) it's not an easy thing to deal with.

    I'm also sad about the impossibility to meet and communicate about other key things.
    Basically, one is allowed to go out to work here, and that is mostly it.

    @Barbara, restaurants are closed or open only for takeout. the food stores are about 2km away I think. I'm thinking of going there by scooter. it means that I cannot bring as much. I need to bring files, etc. It's a little hour by scooter. usually I don't go more than 30-40 min by scooter, but I guess I can make an exception. The owner said he can also take me to food shop or I can take an uber. I'm hesitating but already reserved (not paid) and prefer to respect my engagement.
