Flowers & Fishies

I think David felt bad that when we got back from Xi’an my turtle Xiao Wei was dead. I knew it was gonna happen soon because he wasn’t eating the last little while no matter what I tried to feed him and his shell was so soft when we returned from our home trip. I don’t know if he didn’t want to eat after Xiao Ting died and his heart was broken or what? 🙂

I loved my little turtles. They were so much fun to watch and play with and I will miss them. So…today David had a few errands to do and I stayed home. When he came home he had a beautiful bouquet of lilies, and…fishies! Yep, some fishes for my pretty bowl. Call it an early present for Mother’s Day he said, especially since he’s working all weekend.


So thoughtful and it made my day. Now, what to name these little guys.

And on the river today…

I wonder if they are practicing for Dragon Boat races?

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.
