My neck of the woods

Monday, June 26, 2006














I thought I hadn't really shown you many pictures of where I live, beyond my back door, so here is my home town; Halifax, Nova Scotia...













The MacDonald Bride, from the Halifax-Dartmouth Ferry (always a favourite)...




























Yesterday we went to Lunenburg, about an hour away. It is a world heritage site and a famous Canadian site for ship-building. The Bluenose was built there. We spent most of our time at the museum, since the weather wasn't so nice.















Today I am home. Burning cookies. What are you doing?

    Catching up on blogs, thinking of what to blog (being lazy about it!), waiting for a date to pick me up to see a film, making a lost of what to take to Bucharest next Wednesday... love being a woman who can multi-task! :-)

    I have to cut the grass and I am planning on rafting down the Bow River with a couple friends later.

    That's enough for a Monday.

    oh my goodness your little one looks so cute on that!

    Looks like fun spent well by all.

  1. Blogger erikku said:

    I always wondered if you lived in Halifax or just a little town aways from it. Your backyard looks to woodsy to be near a city that big. ^_^

    I like Halifax, though it reminds me of an insurance company lol
    Today, I was studying at the library for a while, I tried to install and computer game on my computer and failed, I danced, I wrote and I listened to music. And I watched Italy winning the jackpot.

  1. Blogger Heidi said:

    Thanx for sharing Halifax Cathy..Looks like the boys had fun.

    ok..so I'm about to burn a pizza. Everytime I'm on the computer and I have something in the oven... I forget..lol ugh!

  1. Blogger Michelle said:

  1. Blogger Neo said:

    Cathy - Beautiful photo's. I've been there a few times before. A really awesome spot.

    Angel;
    So am I, but not doing a great job of it, I'm afraid...

    fb;
    We do; we always do when we can get out and enjoy each other's company...

    Christina;
    I hope you didn't burn them! I saved my cookies :)
    Next time you're in Halifax again, you will have to drop in.

    Mahala;
    Thank You :)

    Missy;
    Even greater when you have these things on your agenda for multi-tasking; my multi-tasking usually consists of far less intersting things!

    Crag;
    Lucky dog! A day off?...

    Day;
    I bask in his cuteness. Yes, I am a bragging mum sometimes.

    Eric;
    I don't live in the downtown core; but it is close.

    Devil;
    I watched Italy as well; I had hoped for Austrlia, though.

    Heidi;
    I do the same thing..I hope your pizza didn't burn. Have you ever been to Halifax?

    Michelle;
    We saw it a few weeks ago. I loved it; especially the squirrel. Did you enjoy it?

    Vani;
    Thank you :)
    Glad you are back...we are having loads of rain as well.

    Neo;
    Hello :)
    Thanks for dropping by. I have been a rather negligent blogger lately.

    Connie;
    That makes me smile :) Take care.

    Chloe;
    I will post more photos. I looks beautiful in the summer...not so in the winter.
    Did you buy a fridge? Tell me how you are.

    Stephanie;
    Oh dear...will you ahve the chance to come back again for a visit anytime soon?

    Richard;
    Hello! I just read your post today; beautiful writing.

    "I do the same thing..I hope your pizza didn't burn. Have you ever been to Halifax?"

    Cathy I got to it just in time! And no, I have never been to Halifax..The only Canadian cities I visited have been Toronto and Vancouver.

    Fabulous pictures. I LOVE the one of the just the flags with the dark sky. GREAT!

    What a beautiful place to live!

  1. Blogger Stephanie said:

    If I don't go home for Christmas I'll go see my family in the spring. Thing is, time is so precious on these trips to New Brunswick that I never have the chance to go out on my own to places like Halifax. I miss it though. It was a great place to study.

  1. Blogger Tee said:

    What a coincidence! Burning cookies is one of my hobbies, too ;)

    Beautiful pics and children :)
