International Lesbian Day is set aside for all of my lesbian friends and acquaintances. May you continue to shine your light in the world with the love of your lives without discrimination.

It’s easy to celebrate World Egg Day. Just have an egg. I’m so thankful I can eat eggs again. A nice dippy egg on toast is such a treat.

Last night my co-workers (all women) from the Federal Election got together for a craft night. A special thanks to Kelly and her partner, who supplied all the materials and opened their home to us to be able to make sleighs and lanterns. It was a very enjoyable evening of using brad-nailers and stain to create something. It reminded me of the Women’s Home Depot events I attended in Florida where I met Delilah.

Porte Photos

I have an engagement photo session this morning and am looking forward to meeting the happy couple. I always enjoy seeing couples before they get married. We’re meeting in Rayner Park in London ON. A favourite “walk in the Park” site for photographers. Their wedding is scheduled for early October. So the engagement shots will contrast well with the autumn colours wedding. A small wedding at the courthouse. Unfortunately due to ongoing COVID restrictions the photographer won’t be permitted at the ceremony. So I’ll take pictures outside the courthouse and in the nearby park for them to remember their special day of commitment.

Aunt’s Day

Selichot or forgiveness prayers for the community and individuals.

The day after my first son’s birthday is his son’s birthday.  Luckily it’s a Saturday this year.  Due to COVID-19 we’re going to follow the tradition of cake at Grandma’s and Grandpa’s with the family.  Pulled Pork and buns for those who don’t eat beef and chicken strips for those who don’t eat pork.

School is finally starting next week, so we may not be able to see the grandchildren for a couple of weeks until we know if COVID-19 is in their schools.

Passions arise from the heart.  We endevour to grow our passions.  We learn every thing we can about our passions.  Lessons may give us the nuts and bolts of how to do something, but passion and intuition perfect the art forms.
