Canada Day, Back to Work & Somebody's Birthday

Sending out lots of good wishes to all my Canadian family and friends on this great Canada Day!  My French-Canadian mother gave birth on Canada Day (though back then it was called "Dominion Day"). And that darling little baby grew up to be an amazing blogger. Yep, c'est moi!! Interestingly enough, my Canadian cousin Dave's daughter was born on July 4th!  Anyway, Happy Birthday to me and there had better be cake tonight!

My darling husband went to work today for the first time since March 11th. He is doing half days for the first two weeks. Poor fellow, his clothes are all too big for him right now, but hopefully a few more weeks of good eating will fix that. Isn't that great news?! Perfect birthday gift for me, to have my husband well enough to go back to work and give me some peace and quiet at home.

I did get signed up for Bloglovin' and am waiting to see what happens next. So far it doesn't look like anything has changed. I spent an hour on Saturday bookmarking every blog I follow. Just in case. I can be kind of obsessive that way.

Have a wonderful day!  Hugs from Robin.
Pixie and Pyewacket are so excited about my  birthday, aren't they?

Happy Birthday! My father is French-Canadian and we celebrated Canada Day with as much joy as we do the 4th (my mother is American).
I hope you have a wonderful day today and I am beyond thrilled that your husband is feeling well enough to go back to work. I'm sure now that he is back on his feet he will gain his weight back and be better than ever!
Blessings to the both of you!

Happy Birthday Robin! What great news about your husband's return to work! My daughter will hopefully be doing the same in a month. Today we try driving the car for the first time since March. That's the Royal "we" in honor of Canada Day, which I remember celebrating during my years living there. I thought it was still Dominion Day for some reason. I looked at my blog and it looks the same. I couldn't wrap my head around it with all going on. Hope you get that cake! Ann
