Spring really begins in February on Vancouver Island. We are about 4 months ahead
of the rest of Canada. Maybe even more considering Eastern Canada was hit with another
ghastly snowstorm. My girlfriend posted about the snow on face book. I have to say
that cured my homesickness instantly!
My collection of bunnies are starting to come out of hiding. I love bunnies but
even more now that i have my son. He was born in the year of the Rabbit so
bunnies are very special now...hence the growing collection...
This pretty basket my son made me a few years ago for Easter. It is made from
string. I love it. Especially the blue lace he chose for the top...
Here in the Cowichan Valley where i live (not Vancouver ...everyone thinks Vancouver
is Vancouver Island...it's not. Vancouver is the mainland. ) the school board give
the kids two weeks for spring break.
I guess it is a mixed blessing especially if you are a working parent.
We did not go away this year. So yesterday I took Sam to the Royal BC Museum.
It was a wonderful day with so much to see and learn about...
Yes these are stuffed owls..beautiful..they had so many varieties of birds ...
We viewed Canada's claim to fame ...The famous Emily Carr...
her artwork is sensational...
Tomorrow is his last day of Spring Break ...my last chance to try
and beat him to a game of chess...the kid's been creaming me at the game!!
Until next time...sending lots of green to my Eastern Canadian(and American) friends!!
