Away and back

Dave and I are back from visiting with our daughter in New Brunswick this past week. As usual, the best part of our visit was spending time with Ginette. However, there are so many amazing and beautiful places to visit and explore.

My daughter found this nice wool shop that sits within walking distance of their home. I bought wool to knit a winter hat for myself. We love having our pictures taken in cut-out figures like the one below.

When we got to the house Ginette was still at work so we took Meeko outside for fresh air...

... as we were clearing the car from all our belongings, Meeko invites himself in. He loves going for car rides.

There she is, home from work.

And of course, we can't go to Moncton without having at least one meal at Calactus which I posted about here.


On Thursday while Ginette was at work we took Meeko for a car ride. We ended up here...

... at the Belliveau Winery. We bought a bottle of Raspberry wine (which was very good by the way).

Friday was National Acadian Day (Fête nationale des acadiens). All acadians celebrate this holiday but no where is it more celebrated then in New Brunswick. The picture below is a prime example of the Acadian Pride.

Ginette had asked that her papa install a flag pole on their back deck.

The tomato patch in the back yard.

More Meeko cuteness...

Tomorrow is my last day of vacation. I return to work on Monday morning. My one month vacation was sooooooo nice and relaxing but I'm looking forward to seeing my co-workers on Monday morning.

Hello my dearest honeyb - I haven't been commenting on my favorite blogs as I wish I had (you know, vacation and all) but I sure visit my favs every single day - yours is a ''must''. Our students come back Sept. 2.

Thanks Kim, I will try and put in as much hours today as possible. But as I've mentioned I am eager to get back into a routine.

Barb - hope everything is well with you. After today I'll be back with my regular routine so posting and commenting should get back to normal.
