It’s been pretty nutso for me this past while, so my apologies for not updating as often or replying as quickly to comments. In terms of this past weekend, on Friday we went to Jen’s place for a small food and cocktail party. We ate, we gabbed, I bugged her into showing me the progress on her new painting, it was fun.:)
Saturday involved helping my parents with their moving again. This time from their storage pod to their home. We arrived very late, so weren’t as helpful this time, but there were still a good many things to move. I was also able to take more pictures of the birds that congregate in their backyard. Like black capped chickadees:
and blue jays:
Jays are hard to photograph because they are so restless and skittish, always on the move. But going to my parents has awakened the little bird watcher in me and I will be going to other areas to bird watch and photograph.
After leaving my parents, we walked around the lovely village of Perth. I bought a really nice sweater dress and beaver hat (No it’s not made of actual beavers. It’s yet another silly hat of my many silly hats. I like them and don’t really care if other people don’t understand why I enjoy wearing them or tease me for it. They make me happy and that’s all that matters.:)) Afterwards, we wandered around the park and I took some more photos:
Here is one of a statue made to honor acclaimed Canadian equestrian Ian Miller, who is originally from Perth:
Afterwards, we went to Hubby’s parents for a late birthday celebration. One of their cats, Bailey was snoozing on the edge of the couch and naturally I snapped a bunch of him. (He appeared to be only mildly annoyed at the intrusion)
There was some other stuff that happened this weekend, but I’ll blog about that later. In other news-Travis proposed to his boyfriend this past week and he accepted! Yay!! We talked all about how his proposal on the phone and I couldn’t be happier for him! Him and his man are a great match! His partner has been hinting at marriage for awhile now, and, he gave the single ladies at our wedding quite a run for their money when I was throwing my bouquet! LOL!
So congrats Travis! I love you and am looking forward to the nuptials, whenever they happen, however they happen!:)
