A Quiet Day .



Yesterday was our Canada day and a quiet one for me . I puttered , did some weeding , cut the grass , did a bit of laundry and took photos  and  Miggs and I went for our walk early in the morning . Thank you to all of you who sent get well wishes to Miggs, she is doing good now , I figured it was just a cramp in her large back leg muscle that threw her for a loop for a day but she is back to her old self again , I told her she has to take it easy now and no running hard and fast to chase things lol . ok like that’s gona work , who am I kidding lol !

Any who  it was a over cast day more like a washed out sky for most of the day  at least for photos  and it had  the odd pop of sunshine here and there , I had my own air show for Canada day fly over our house and valley for about half an hour as these 4 Harvard’s  were testing the sky’s and taking a tour  . They are the  Canadian Harvard Aircraft  Association stationed in the town of St Thomas  at their airport which is  about a 38 min drive  from us  we are lucky to get so many different large and small aircraft fly over head .

I was able to get quite a few photos of these guys as they did a lot of fly overs  . It was amazing  , I do like air craft especially older ones  !

                I then looked for other things to photograph as they were done for the day and went back to their base !

One never knows what one will see here in our valley and back yard  almost every day is a surprise and a wonder . So quiet days can be good at least they are here lol . Well not to quiet with all the birds and  baby birds making all their noises of feed me now I am starving but nevertheless wonderful .!

                                                                              Until next time my friends .
