Lifestyle, My Canada

April in pictures…

I just realized that the summer vacation is in two months! I still remember last Christmas like it was yesterday and I am in denial that we have May already!!!! The truth is that looking around you can get the impression that it is December. The spring is very slow this year. It almost feels like it is taking one step forward and two steps back. I remember a couple times in the past years that spring came so quickly that, even though I was outside every day I missed all the fast changes wondering when did the leaves and flowers grow :) This year even our neighbours’ Magnolia is not ready. The tree is still in sleeping mode and when we checked yesterday only a few of the buds seem to crack slightly. It definitely needs a couple more warm days. It is one of the largest Magnolias in the neighbourhood and when in full bloom there is no person who does not stop to admire its beauty. So while waiting for the real spring to come please enjoy a few pictures from the last month :)


DSC_0731rwe did a fair amount of baking and naan bread was almost constantly on our table… Some of the breads instead of flat came out nicely puffed up which allowed us to use them as pita pockets for school lunches! Delicious:)

DSC_0369rso far this is the only boat in our Marina but soon more will be on the water ready for the boating season!
