Travel Tuesday - Lady's Return - by Lee

 Dear pals,

Lady came back last week and literally got struck with her best guess influenza as she landed. She is very angry about this because she got the vaccine and it has been a week and at best she is at 60%. I am not suppose to say, that is what you get for leaving me. 

Snuggling Lady to make her feel better

She is grateful it waited until she got home as she had a wonderful weekend in Winnipeg with her friends. She arrived at a very sad time for them. 2 weeks before their senior dog Crosby was called to the bridge. The day Lady arrived her friend said goodbye to his 91 year old father. In spite these heartbreaks, her friends insisted she come and were still gracious hosts. It didn't feel like they had been apart for almost 2 years.

Lady went to a place called the Leaf. It is an indoor horticultural attraction. In the spring and summer they have outdoor gardens too. Here is some colour to brighten your day!

The butterflies weren't very active in the butterfly garden

After some time in the tropics they wandered the Leo Mol sculpture garden.

Lady spotted a bunny

Not pictured was watching her friends curl, going to the Human Rights Museum (the only National Museum outside of the National Capital Region and truly beautifully done, if not enraging at times), a walk around the Forks (indoor shopping area), and watching the Superbowl with her friend's extended family. 

While she had a good time, we are glad she is back and hope is at 100% soon (as she is a terrible sick person).

  3. OH NO Lee I'm so sorry Lady arrived home feeling very poorly. Good for you keeping her warm and most of all not saying "I told you to stay home"! BOL
    I'm sorry about her friends losses...they were quite gracious to tell her to come anyway.
    I expect having her there gave them many happies too.
    Love photos
    Hugs Cecilia

  4. The flowers are just beautiful and we hope Lady feels better soon.

  7. Lee hugs/snuggles have to help to cure what ails Lady. ;)

  8. Getting the shots doesn't necessarily prevent getting any of the flu's but it should lessen the severity. We're glad Lady didn't get sick until she got home so you could nurse her to good health.

  9. 91 is a good long time. Rest his soul in peace.

  10. I am sorry your mom is sick. Mommy had all the shots and still got sick too. She thinks if not for the shots she would have got a lot sicker.
