Anniversary post

>> Wednesday, September 17, 2008

I don't want to brag but it's our 2-year anniversary today and I feel really lucky because I have the loveliest husband ever. For example, yesterday he went to the workroom to find the "single girl" Denyse Schmidt quilt pattern for me because he knew that's the one I was hoping to use for my next quilt. How sweet is that? Unfortunately it wasn't in stock in the shop yet, which made me realize how much I depend on Karyn for my craft supplies. I was sure I had seen it there. But of course I have lots of other projects to keep me busy in the meantime.

I like taking candid pictures of people, but it doesn't always work out... I got the impromtu smile but it's pretty blurry.

So today I was thinking of what I should post for our anniversary and decided to show some pictures from our last camping trip in August.
This photo is pretty terrible too but I had to show you - we saw a bear! You really don't have a lot of time to compose the photo when you see a bear. I didn't even get the chance to zoom in so you can pretty much see how far away he was. I wasn't scared of him because he just seemed very slow and ambly (not a word - I mean ambling along-ish). Like he's had his main meal but was just sort of mildly interested in an extra snack. Luckily we're good campers and all the food was tucked away.
This is my favourite part of Kilbear where we were staying, the beach at Granite Saddle. It has this pretty grove of trees near the beach which is fairly small but rarely crowded.
The first day was a bit cloudy but we still did some swimming in case it was rainy on the next day. And this is what I like to do on the beach...We're also big readers. We read at the campsite, on the beach, and in our hammock. I don't have a picture of it though because the only one (taken by Bradley) is me falling out of it. It wasn't very flattering.But I will be brave and show you a picture of me:Chipmunks are a-dime-a-dozen at our Canadian campgrounds, but I'm remembering that blogs are international so I'll show a picture of this small visitor. My friend Sogut is from Turkey and she was amazed when she first came to Toronto at all the "cute" squirrels everywhere. Just boring ordinary everywhere-you-look squirrels. It made me think.And in the same vein, our lovely Canadian landscapes...Because we did get that sunny day after all.And one last picture, just to make Bradley laugh... Fifi and Francis getting ready to watch Dr. Who.Happy Anniversary Bradley!

Happy anniversary. That looks like a good spot to watch Dr Who from.

Happy Anniversary! The camping trip looked like a lot of relaxing (except for the bear?) - very important to bring the knitting. Good choice. And, thanks for being brave - having a face with a blog is a nice bonus. I haven't gotten up the nerve yet.

You and Bradley are such a cute couple! All this time I've been reading your blog, and I always wondered what you look like. You look just like I pictured you in my mind. :) And you, knitting on the beach!

Happy anniversary!
