Attila had a coveted Saturday off work
last weekend. We packed a few belongings
and headed out on the long drive to
visit Luna et al. Unfortunately Janus
was away on business, so we did not
get to see him. We missed him, and hopefully
next time we all get together his schedule
will allow him to join us.
We had a lovely time visiting. The twins,
Imp and Elf, are an absolute delight.
They are small bright lights, sparkling
with energy and intelligence. And Tink
just makes the heart melt, she is impossible
to put down. She is six months old now.
She aquainted herself with
her newly found hands, exploring our
faces with great enthusiasm. She was
particularly taken with my glasses,
but settled happily for pinching my
face and nose. Benny the dog is doing
very well, however, Bim has been experiencing
seizures and is not the happiest of
dogs just at the moment. Soot the cat
was her usual friendly self; she is
quite beautiful as some of her jet black
fur is turning grey, the contrast is
We enjoyed going for walks with everyone,
Imp and Elf riding their by bicycles,
learning how to watch for cars, burning
off some of their bountiful energy.
Tink watched them from
her carrier, strapped to her mother's
chest, safe and warm. Benny and Bim
love going for walks of course. It is
quite a project, taking this crew for
a walk; I wonder that Luna can ever
manage it on her own.
Terra and Janus dropped in a few times
to round out the family visit. It was
luxurious to have both the girls and
their loved ones all in one place.
Terra is doing very well at school,
just as I knew she would. She is coming
into her own, she works hard, and it
shows. It doesn't hurt that Lares is
supportive and Terra's biggest fan.
The drive there and back was uneventful,
the weather was good, only rain on the
March has been a decent month for hours
at work, as it has turned out. A whole
week of days was offered and accepted
with pleasure. I'm not used to working
full days any more, so I was very, very
tired. Tired and happy.
Spring has arrived. Our property seems
to be hoarding the last of the winter's
snow, but even here it is fast disappearing.
Unseasonably high temperatures are predicted
for the next week, which should melt

Yesterday a flock of seven adult wild
turkeys sauntered across our front yard.
They came out of the bush and headed
off toward the lakeshore.
Today I need to bake bread, and tidy
up around the house. Not a lot that
has to be done. Spring cleaning is beginning
to feel like a viable option though,
so I'll be casting my eye about the
place, deciding where to start.
They will be shutting off our hydro
this morning for a few hours, so I must
do all the little things that want doing
with electricity before the "lights
