Visit to my Daughter in Nova Scotia

I don’t want to bore everyone with my trip details and my pictures, but I wanted to share some of my visit to see my daughter, her partner and Sherman!

I loved seeing my granddoggy over the last 9 days. Here is a sampling of his moods from the day I arrived until yesterday when we decorated for Christmas.

They’re Gone 😥😥

Some of you may be aware that my daughter (my baby), my son-in-law and my granddog were moving halfway across the country to Nova Scotia. I was very strong, until they were getting ready to climb into the car, then I lost it. It is about 2100 km. or 1300 miles from me. This is quite a change from a 20 minute drive.

Happy Victoria Day

To all my fellow Canadian, Happy Victoria Day. It doesn’t really feel like a holiday or long weekend right now, but hopefully you can get outside and maybe have a barbecue.

Victoria Day is a federal Canadian public holiday celebrated on the last Monday preceding May 25, initially in honour of Queen Victoria’s birthday it is now celebrated as the official birthday of the current Queen of Canada. It is informally considered the beginning of the summer season in Canada.
