The Queen's Birthday
The 24th of May is the Queen's
Birthday. Here's an image from
our local school ground's
impromptu fireworks tonight.
In Canada we're celebrating
the occasion today, because Victoria's actual birthday is on a Saturday and
that would mean no long weekend. Or at least that's the theory.
But this is the real Queen in our house -- Queen Fiona,
whose name is nouveau Celt.
We encouraged a festive mood by
giving our reigning monarch extra
crunchies, which she seemed to
appreciate. Friends from afar (Flora
and Larry from Nova Scotia) dropped in, and we had a lovely visit. I was sorry that the house was a tip, the
fridge empty, and the stores closed, but delighted to see those two fellow
artists. Flora is one amazing painter,
and Larry creates in silver and precious stones, making objects so beautiful, that they are truly fit for a queen.
Have a regal day!
