Visitor... of the best kind

Sorry for the lack of blogging lately but I've been busy - the good kind of busy that is. My niece visited from Ontario last week. We did as much as we could possibly do in just a few days but we still wanted to keep it calm and stress free (only stress involved was when I drove Colleen back to the train station in Halifax and my usual route to enter the city was under construction and I was faced with an unfamiliar detour, but everything turned out perfect and we got to the train station in plenty of time - honest, that was the only stress of the week).

We ate lobster.

Went for a walk in the trails where I take my daily walks on the university campus where I work.

Birchdale Lake

Entering at the gate...

Having our lunch in one of the cabins...

Relaxing in the chapel. My SIL in the middle with the hunter's vest. Birchdale is way in the middle of the forest and it's hunting season around here.

Other stuff we did but forgot about the camera :
- ate rappie pie.
- went to Frenchy's.
- visited with family members.
- almost wet our pants laughing because Puss ate Colleen's Peace Tea teabags (we think they contained catnip).
- drank herbal tea.
- knitted (I think this might have been one of my favorite things we did together).

Thank you so much Colleen for a wonderful week.

Wonderful pictures.
I looked on the Peace Tea box and yes, it does contain catnip, as we suspected...hee hee
I had a wonderful week with you too Vickie and I also enjoyed knitting with you each night - I am missing that the most.
Love Colleen xo

Wow ~ sounds like you'll had a wonderful time.

I chuckled about Puss eating the teabags ..... awww Catnip for the kitty. My puppy grabbed Little Man's sock and ate it yesterday , guess he'll be pooping a sock soon (LOL).

The snow photos look gorgeous , hope we get snow this year.
