But then I think that that is to be expected. Life lately has been full of events: World Wide Knit in Public Day one Saturday, followed the next weekend by the writer's conference, followed the weekend after by a neighbourhood barbecue which I co-hosted with my neighbours. Followed by ... yesterday: Canada Day AND my grandson's birthday which we celebrated by hosting a family barbecue.
So today's written blog has been cancelled. In it's place are snatches or highlights of our day yesterday.
|Canada Day in Stratford, Ontario|
|Clown making balloon animals for the children. He had quite a lineup.|
|I love all the red and white!|
|Peace and quiet sitting on a bench on the main corner of Stratford|
|Watching people walking, traffic passing and a pick up truck sporting a huge Canada flag|
|Buskers at the main corner of Stratford|
|City Hall in Stratford, behind which are the festivities|
|The birthday boy|
|Whimsical photo of chairs all lined up waiting for their humans|
|We all labelled our cups with a marker. This was how my son-in-love labelled mine.|
|Canada Ice Cream for a Canadian holiday and a Canada Day birthday. I'd love to see our cousins to the south try this with all their stars and stripes!|
|It was always a tradition for Grammy (me) to make birthday cards for each family member from photos I'd taken. Over the last few years, I was unable focus enough to make them. This year, I'm able to restart the tradition again. Yay!|
|Opening presents. Believe it or not, he wanted pineapple, coconut and nutella! The way to a man's heart ....|
