Birth Announcement on the Lake

I've been keeping busy doing a lot of cycling (30 km per day), kayaking, and photography (but sadly almost no fibre art).

We had 2 new baby loons hatch on the lake the other day and I was lucky enough to get a wonderful photo of papa feeding one of the babies.  The other baby is between the parents and therefore can't be seen but I think it's a wonderful photo (I can just hear my husband's voice in my head as he says, "Self praise is no praise.", but oh well!)

Meet Nikki

I'm up at the cottage and I've met a new friend.  His name is Nikki and he's the friendliest little chipmunk!  As you can see, he comes up on my lap to get peanuts when I'm sitting out on the deck.  My dog Casey has learned to leave him alone because he's "Mom's friend".  She just watches but doesn't bother Nikki at all!

Zen Day at Sandra's

I enjoyed a much needed 'Zen Day' at Sandra's Open Studio on Thursday.  We made these wonderful little journals and I had a chance to just relax and regroup after a tough few days.
