As most of you know, the last month has been a complete blur. We are now moving forward and (reluctantly) accepting that my Dad is gone, and that life will never be the same. Emotions are running high, I have times of tears, and times of joy and laughter, but it is time to get back to some form of “normal”.
I’ve come back to Vancouver for a couple of days, then Dennis and I will be heading back to Victoria for the long weekend to hang out with my Mom. Here is a GORGEOUS cloud formation that was on the ferry last night…..I see a bird with outstretched wings.
That was last night, but today, it was time to reconnect to my home, and my life here in Vancouver. I had so many hugs from my co-workers today. I have some amazing work friends, and I have felt their love and support through the last few weeks. I am lucky!!!
I also reconnected with this little girl, who I missed so much over the last couple of weeks. Hi Neva! …..
….I saw some beautiful sunflowers on my walk to my little community garden plot during my lunch hour…..
…I found some new public art in the local park, 3 jelly beans that reflect the park and the city beautifully.
….I have grown tiny weeny carrots that look like testicles in our little garden plot. Note to self: rethink placement of carrots next summer…..
…I got reacquainted with my favorite bird pond……
…there is a new little calico kitten ready for adoption…..
…many pigeons on a wire…..
….a very cool and rusted angel door knocker on a house that will soon be torn down…..
…and finally, our quirky sand sculpting neighbor is back at it….for the record, the face in the sunbeams is one of my favorite pieces so far.
My next goal is to reconnect with my blog friends. I’ve missed you all, and can’t thank you enough for your wonderful support over the last month. I look forward to catching up with you!!
I hope all of you have a wonderful long weekend. I will check in when I can. And I assure you, regular blogging will continue soon! Bring on the “new normal”…..
