Yesterday was a "shhhhhh..." day. Miles was grinding away in the corner on a proposal he had a deadline for. I keep forgetting and chatting away at him in one ear about the most trivial of things. After a bit of it I start hearing some growling and gnashing of teeth and when the arms begin to flail I get the message very clearly. When his feathers become unruffled I give him peace and quietude. He eventually finished and I proofed it all for him. Next we straightened ourselves and the house a bit and headed to the city to submit the proposal.
Now, I have a confession...I have had to retype this entire blog TWICE as I lost my first version...and I did the same little monkey dance of frustration as Miles does when he's busy...ironic, no?
On our trip north Miles stopped to get THE photograph in a nicely wooded area - he stopped on the way home as well at the Desert Centre to take a panorama at dusk. At one of these two locations (and I would like to think it was the latter, timewise) he picked up a few companions. It IS spring and it is the Okanagan...so he wound up giving a few ticks a ride home. He discovered this when we arrived home - did the little dance etc. We cannot figure how they got only on his t shirt which was under his jacket - both black.

Like my latest scrapbook layout? My sweet, dear, lovely, warm, outgoing and generous friend Gina secured it for me and we have laboured for days trying to send and recieve its various bits and zips. I worked with what I have to make this layout. Gina, thank you sooo very very much for your kindness - it makes my heart all warmily.
