My mum and dad were over for the long weekend. Vancouver schools were off Friday and Monday for District Closure Days. Have to say, I love them and it makes the longer day very worthwhile. We had four absolutely glorious days and as a fellow Pacific Northwest blogger said, we have to take advantage of them. My mum and I walked at Jericho Beach and Spanish Banks on Friday and then my neighbour and walked a bit on Monday. Here is a video I took with my mum. I obviously need more practice with the camera. I hadn't used it since coming home on the ferry.
P.S. If anybody knows how to post a video on You Tube so it can be seen on my blog but not have other videos linked to it when it has finished playing, please leave a comment. When my videos finish playing there are about 6 links to view other videos that aren't mine. Other blogs that have videos don't do this. If I make the video private only people who I have given a password to can see it and I don't want to prevent people seeing my videos.
P.P.S. Sunday was Feb. 5. Last year I spent Saturday, Feb. 5, 2011 at a workshop at AFABC. It was at this Adoption 101 workshop that I pretty much decided adoption was the route I would take to become a parent. An appointment last Feb. 25 confirmed this decision. I decided to use the day I registered with my agency as the start date for my journey but could have used February 5, 2011.
I keep extending and extending my time frame and had hoped to have my dossier submitted by the end of January. Over the weekend I thought submitting my dossier on Valentines Day would be fitting but am not sure I'll get everything back from Victoria in time for that. If I could do this, it would put a new meaning on Valentines Day for me! Here's hoping with fingers and toes crossed.
