What A Week!

Since the last time I posted, I experienced my very first severe Canadian ice storm (yes, in frickin’ April!), bombs exploded during the Boston Marathon killing 3, bombs exploded in Baghdad killing a lot more than in Boston, major earthquakes happened in Iran, fertilizer plant exploded in West, Texas and practically flattened the whole town, and overnight the Boston marathon bombing suspects were found, one of them killed in a firefight, the other one was still on the run as of this writing. Seriously, what the hell?!?

Birthdays and Such

And so I turned 40 on Sunday, which means that it’s been 10 years since the last time I heard my mother wish me a happy birthday. I couldn’t sleep the night before my birthday. Kept thinking about my mother. Made me cry a little. I only slept for 3.5 hours that night at most, so on my birthday I was pretty out of it. The highlight of the day was having a quiet breakfast with my lovely husband at my new favourite breakfast place in town. I had the strawberry waffle pictured above. It was delicious!

The 2013 Annual Tundra Swan Trip

This past Saturday, we went for our annual trip to Aylmer to check out the migrating tundra swans that were re-fuelling (read: eat a lot of corn courtesy of the local conservation authority) before continuing their journey to their summer vacation spots up at the Arctic tundras.
