Good "Canada Day" Morning to you

We are enjoying a beautiful sunny day here in Southwestern Ontario. Hope the sun is shining on you today too. We heard all sorts of fireworks last night, but we didn’t see any. We don't go to the city centre celebrations anymore. We used to go when the kids were younger, but now we are on our own, we like to stay away from the crowds and parking jams and other things that come with fireworks displays.

We were in Ottawa once for Canada Day and I really enjoyed that and would like to do it again, but not every year. Once in a while is enough for me. Now, we put our flags out in the front garden, watch the festivities in Ottawa on the TV, and in the comfort of our own family room we raise a glass of wine in a toast to the country. That is my kind of celebration.

This is a rather short entry today, but I just wanted to wish you all a Happy Canada Day. Talk to you all later.
