Life Bits No. 1

Follow my blog with Bloglovin Re-Opening The City Last Monday was the first day of Saskatchewan’s five-phase reopening plan. Some people dread it. I’m one of those people. For the past months, majority of the world’s population have adapted to what we currently call as the new normal as COVID-19 hits us hard. Here in Saskatoon, certain establishments have been closed for a while. Malls have been closed for weeks.
