On the new front;
Today is Family Day in Ontario, Alberta & Saskatchewan, which is a holiday on the third Monday of February. In British Columbia, Family Day falls on the second Monday of February. You would think we could get it on the same day. This day is celebrating the importance of family & community, so I don't understand why it is not being celebrated across Canada & on the same day. And yes Happy President's Day to my American family & friends.
Also on the sort of new front; sunshine & lots of it over this holiday weekend with accompanying milder temperatures. Smokey Puss certainly knew how to make the most of the sunshine. She had a wonderful bath & snooze in the sunshine.
Sooty Paws was busy running from window to window watching all the squirrel & bird activity. Love is definitely in the air for the squirrels. I will say no more.
On Sunday we had a trip out in search of the last few items I needed for the Winter Photo Scavenger Hunt - success. We traveled on a few back roads that we had not previously ventured on, so another new! This is one of the reasons I like the PSHs & miss Snap, as it gets us motivated to go out. As introverts we have far too easy a time in finding reasons to stay inside.
On Friday, Mr Man experienced for the first time having the person in front of him in the drive thru line pay for his coffee - he was so excited for this. Bonus is that it's Tim Horton's Roll Up The Rim time - he won a free coffee! Score. Bonus. Pay It Forward.
It is beginning to look a lot like tax time - the mail box has had several pieces of mail all to do with T this & T that - Canadian tax forms have a T in front of the number to signify that it is for the tax form. I also think the form number corresponds to the line on the master tax form submitted to the government. I will say no more about taxes.
I hope everyone has a wonderful week ahead.
