It's a Long Weekend

Here in Canada, it is a long weekend. Victoria day weekend. Tomorrow is the official holiday. As far as I know, there are not many (or any) celebrations for this. Mainly folks are just thankful for the extended break from work. Now Canada day(July 1) is really celebrated. Such a contrast from Victoria day.

My mom and 2 aunts are coming out to spend the day tomorrow. That means games all day, and lots of fun & laughs. Caleb loves it when they come out to visit. :o)

We had alot of wildlife here in our neck of the woods yesterday. On the way home from church, we saw a rabbit hopping down into our neighbor's yard. At suppertime, there was a moose walking up our driveway. He crossed over into the field and disappeared into the woods. After dark, when I was driving up the driveway there in front of me was a porcupine! The windows were up! lol :o)

Today, we went for a drive with my f-i-l. He wanted to go to a garden center. We got tomato plants, coriander, pepper plants, seed potatoes, onion sets and various seeds. I have absolutely no green thumb. :o( But when I get into a green house, I really think I can do it. lol ;o) I got some wild flower seeds to try. They look so great in the catalog. They are supposed to attract songbirds, hummingbirds and butterflies. I sure hope they grow, because they will make a nice flower arrangement too.

Lisa - I got your comment to post. I had lost my comment link, and in an effort to restore it, I clicked a button where I had to "moderate" the comments. So I accepted them, and undid that option.

Thanks for stopping. PS I made colored links by changing the text color. I highlighted the link, clicked on the "T" with the colored box beside it, chose a color & voila' (The "T" is next to the "i" for italics at the top of the box for writing your posts.
