Although some of you already know about this, I´m so excited to share this news. After some consideration, we adopted another dog, a little sister for Dot! Her name is Lia, she is three years old and a bodeguero, the same breed as our Dot. She is a bundle of energy and a real sweetheart. Dot is starting to get used to having her around. Like all new parents, we have taken tons of pictures.

I hadn’t planned to bring Flat Ruthie along on our recent trip to Spain but she really wanted to join us. She doesn’t take much room so we said OK. She had a great time and everyone loved her. She got some sun but I made sure she didn’t burn.

Flat Ruthie had fun and so did I. More pictures to come.

We are delighted to have as our guest Andy the Travelling Armadillo.  He arrived on Friday after travelling all the way from Mason City, Iowa where he had been a guest of Beth Ann from It’s Just Life.  He belongs to Lenore from Lenore’s Thought Exactly but he likes to travel around and see the world.  He has been to Florida, Texas, Virginia Beach and New Zealand so far. He arrived with his own snacks which he kindly shared with us.

After getting over his jet lag, Andy went to the beach with me yesterday. He loved burrowing into the sand and even went into the water to cool off, where he blended right in. I didn’t mind sharing my towel and book with him.

He joined us later for a refreshing strawberry iced tea at our favourite coffee shop called Ambiente and relaxed with us on our patio after a barbeque.

Andy is such a pleasant visitor I am not sure why Monkey, our cat, is not making friends with him.

Watch for more of Andy’s adventures on the west coast of Canada!

What did you do on the weekend?

On Sunday I went for a walk around my neighbourhood and the beach near my house and thought about how lucky I am to live where I do.  It is a dream come true for me to live in such a beautiful place. I believe in an attitude of gratitude, so decided to make a list of things I am grateful for.  Here are just a few of my favourite things that came to mind on my walk:

 

 My favourite neighbourhood coffee shop

 

My favourite pastime

 

My favourite flower shop (across the street from my house)

 

My favourite beach (10  minutes from my house)

 

My favourite log at the beach (where I often read)

 

My favourite man!

The list could go on but I will stop here.  What are some things you are grateful for in your life right now?
