Robin is gone - Bunny is here

I had a happy Canada Day. Mostly relaxed but there were some neighbourhood fireworks around that I saw. Spent the early evening doing some of the stained glass. It is coming along nicely.

I spent part of the morning at Stratford Hospital - got a cortisone shot for my shoulder. Hopefully that will help and I can lose some of this pain. The doctor says I should have some physio as well. I'll see what I can fit in.

Came home and started working on month-end report for the hospital construction. When I put my head up I saw a bunny in the back yard. Messy back yard leaves lots of weeds for him to eat. Caught a picture out the sliding glass door.

The bad news for the day is that I have three robins eggs but no robin. They appear to have abandoned the nest. I think the weekly grass cutting that the condo does disturbed them. It is a shame. I think I will see if a science teacher wants the nest and eggs.

Ireland is only 7 weeks off. I am looking at transportation and trying to decide if we should buy our train and bus tickets before we leave Canada or once we arrive in Dublin. Peggy is going to arrange all the information we have gathered but I will probably print out the bus schedules for all the places and take them with us.

I have to start planning clothes and stuff for the trip. You need to take enough but you hate to take too much. I packed the right amount for Italy and overpacked for Spain so this is going to be iffy. We are going for a longer time but we have been warned that we may not be able to get laundry done. Well we could always buy new underwear and socks along the way. I have gained weight so I have to check that clothes fit. I guess I could lose weight but I don't think you can count on that.

July is looking almost as busy as June was. I have another paper due in Science and Religion, Dinner with Stratford friends on July 12th - Steve Yu is in from China, Rock concert on the 20th - Bon Jovi and Kid Rock, and final exam on July 26th evening. I expect we will go to at least one more production at Stratford. My Stained Glass is coming along but I will need at least another night or too at Edwards Glass to finish it off and then I have to sand and paint the antique frame I have. I am also trying to get some of my pictures together and framed or in albums.

  1. Thank you. I loved that. It was very interesting, but I guess when you have an interesting life, you have lots to write about. I love the bunny photo, too. So cute!
