Saturday/yesterday was a rest day and we turned it into a nice day trip to Niagara Falls. It is March break and my daughter Maggie is spending a few days in Fort Erie at a friend's... so we drove her and made a stop at the Butterfly Conservatory before dropping her off.
This place is not big but I was very impressed with the number and variety of butterflies... My last visit to a butterfly conservatory was in Vienna (Austria)... I don't recall seeing that many! I took a lot pictures, here only a few - my favorites...
(Maggie was scared! Can you believe this!!!)
That was a nice day with my Beau bonhomme!
We stopped at a pub on our way back (oups - ate a huge lunch: buffalo crispy chicken wrap with fries - so I skipped dinner all together!)
For the March Picture challenge with my family, here is some of the pictures we shared:
March 4 - Tree.
Pandora "tree of Life" from my mommy; a drawing from Emma - I guess that is a nice break from studying so hard; bonsai - at home, from Maggie; tattoo - my sister's back in honor of her family, and it makes me think of my dear sis Eve...
March 5 - Something you love.
Morning / Night - Cuba souvenir, our wedding ribbons, my sister Eve's Chinese box, music box - a gift when I became a mom for the first time! / my perfume, old glasses, Chinese medicine, meditation book and running log.
March 6 - Chores! We had fun with this one...
Emma made the Bean Salad - following my recipe on Spark!!! Wohoo! It looks yummi!
As a senior officer, I had to attend the finals for the Canadian Armed Forces Hockey Championships (Women and Old Timer), give the awards and make a speech at the banquet - what a nice way to spend a day… I manage to squeeze a workout / glad I did because I ate too much! Finally, my mom is getting ready for a trip to Florida - their next destination - so she had to finish the wine!
March 7 - Fruit.
Like my mom (her picture) - I like my bowl of fruit in the morning
March 8 - Dream.
In memory of my beloved grand-parents. Whenever I see them - in my dreams - I know my grand-ma is around, but she is busy with my sister Eve and my grand-pa is always the one taking to me and making sure I am ok... I like the messages that my brain/ angels are sending me... I need more
... my record from last week (fitbit) is not improving so much... working on it!
March 9 - Music.
I went to a warm yoga class this morning (75 min) ... no music! We are going for a walk at the lake... Menu for tonight: chicken, asparagus & tomato-cucumber salad.
Not sure what I will make for dessert, but it will be healthy!
