staying put


On Friday when the hubby arrived home from work he announced that his stay-cation had begun.  Yup, he is taking two weeks vacation time, yay!  We have no concrete plans to leave the area, instead we will do tons of nothing and everything, with the kids.  We haven't taken a proper vacation since the early summer of 2005 so things may continue to be a bit slow for the next couple of weeks, I hope you understand?

Spontaneity will be the name of the game and if the weather cooperates we will be beaching and exploring the local scene.  Last night we kicked it all off with a visit to our favorite gelati place and then for a wee peek at the Jazz Festival before heading home with a crew of tired kids.  Gotta love wearing them out that way.

Oh and what do these photos have to do this post?  Nothing really.  I haven't posted any of our feathered friends photos in a while and if you can imagine since I took these photos, they have changed again!  I'm thinking of having some of these printed on canvas to hang by the B-meister's bed for the long cold winter that lies ahead.  Shh, don't tell him. 


I also wanted to give a heartfelt thanks to everyone who has commented lately and also in particular since that day - things dramatically improved the next day.  I really love the support that flows from the blogging community and you should know your comments mean the world to me.  I'll be getting back to each and everyone of you who commented or emailed me over the next week.  Have a lovely and happy Monday, xxx

    you guys should head out to the folk fest with the kids one day....

  2. Maggie,
    It was good to see you at the Folk Fest, we had such a great time and so did the kids. Next year we will have to make it for all four days. Hope your camping was tons of fun?

  3. I just love the photos of these geese - so great, these head-on shots, their expressions, too good.

  4. Susan,
    thank you...we have loved spending many a warm afternoon watching the geese grow up. It' s a sight to behold. Thank you for dropping by :)
