 Baby BreeVery good news, my niece brought her little one home from the hospital on Monday. Bree is 5 lb. 4 ounces and thriving. Here's a photo. She looks a bi
t overwhelmed doesn't she! There's a link to a few more photos if you click on the photo including one with her daddy. I think she's got his looks around the eyes and his dark hair, too, if it stays dark. My niece is blonde and babies often loose their hair and when it grows in, it can be a different colour. I still haven't had the opportunity to hold her but I'm sure I will now she's home. 

That's the big news of the week. 

In other local news, the Bluenose II, the lovely sailing ship that represents Nova Scotia, has finally been completely renovated and overhauled and she'll be doing lots of sailing this summer, including leading the Parade of Sail when the Tall Ships come. The boat will be in harbour in Lunenburg for much of August and September so when Malc comes to visit, I would really like to drive down there for a day trip and book tickets to sail on her. In all these years, I've never been on board for a sail. Lunenburg is a gorgeous town, a UNESCO heritage place, too. I haven't been there for awhile. I think I took Graham there on his first visit to NS but we haven't been there since. 

I have been making lists of vegetarian friendly restaurants for Malc, too. Most places have one or two dishes but some are definitely better than others and if we want to eat out somewhere, I don't want to always have to depend on Chinese/Thai or Curry. There aren't really a lot of Indian restaurants here though there are many Chinese places all the way up the scale to some really, really good ones. I've also been earmarking a few recipes to make as well. Vegetarian chili is always a good standby as is Lasagna or spaghetti sauce. I have a couple of good vegetarian pasta recipes as well. I suppose i should make sure I have extra tomatoes and cheese and lettuce in for sandwiches and I may look to see what the grocery store has for veggie luncheon meats and get some tins of soup in or I could always make some and freeze it.
