We’re listing five favourites of the week- reasons to celebrate – little and big – whatever made us smile and brought a little joy.
1. I was absent from fff last week because of our little kitty, Ruby. She and I went to visit my niece, a vet at the Atlantic Vet College. She had a bad reaction to some worm medicine. But all turned out well.
Can you believe she is almost 6 months old?? Here she is with her older brother Rollie, lounging in front of the fire – he’s 4 months older and probably 4 times bigger. Check out the difference in the paw size.
Her diminutive stature was a great puzzlement to the 3 vet students, 2 vets and 1 vet nurse who examined her. But they concluded that she’s perfectly healthy ~ just small. Watching her appetite and energy return this week has been a favourite!
2. Making bread on a sunny, winter afternoon.
Letting my girl have the fun part 🙂
Mmm mm ~ homemade bread slathered with butter and molasses – a Maritime favourite
3. Playing with this photo editing software – a free program and that’s always reason to celebrate!
Many of you asked how I made the coffee table book images. It’s one of the many frame options in this program. It’s great fun!
4. We had a birthday this week – my beloved celebrated 56 years!
Sarah baked the birthday cake this year and it was delicious! Chicken, bacon wraps with cranberry mayo, salad and a fruit tray were on the menu as well. Our middle boy, John, was home from Toronto for a short visit and was able to join in the celebration.
5. Olympic celebrations! Not only watching and cheering for the home team – but getting ready for the games as well. My boys’ band, Paper Lions, have a showcase at the Winter Olympics this weekend.
Practicing in the family room – just like old times.
My boys – Robbie in the back, John in front and their friends Colin and Dave. If you’re in Vancouver, catch them at the Atlantic Canada House this Saturday night.
Hope you enjoyed a little glimpse of my week.
