The last few days have shown England celebrating The Queen's Diamond Jubilee in other words 60 years as Monarch. I've been watching bits and pieces of it on TV and it's quite marvelous to see all the festivities, etc. I'm sure most people can not even imagine having a job for that many years, especially one that the world watches. Many households in Canada still hold a soft spot for the Royal Family. I think these days that Kate is probably the new sweetheart of the family. Personally I loved her red dress and hat that she wore on the flotilla. I think today they end the big celebrations with more events including a balcony appearance toward the end of the day.
So yesterday came and went. Some things accomplished, not everything I wanted, but overall not a bad day except for the rain and dampness.
Last week we had a thunder and lightening storm one night. Looks like lightening struck this tree went down splitting the bark, travelled through the root and up the other tree a short distance.
One of the apple trees in the yard, loaded with Wisteria blooms. The birds certainly seem to love those flowers.
Well as I've been writing, daylight has come, no sun with it. However, I don't hear rain anymore so perhaps it will clear or is that wishful thinking. No matter, I still have get myself ready. Larry and Lexi are up and out for their morning stroll. Lexi will want to get the paper that never comes this early anymore. Time for me to put the kettle back on.
Enjoy your day!
