Happy Canada Day!

Although it's been awhile since I've lived there, I'm proud to be Canadian! Living in London makes me appreciate the space of my homeland like never before. So Happy Canada Day to all my fellow Canadians 'back home' and beyond.

This Canada Day is particularly special thanks to Lynn over at Place to Create, who has mentioned me on her Great Reads by Canadians post! I'm so honoured and thrilled to be in such great company. Thanks, Lynn.

And now I'm off for my annual dosage of maple syrup, poutine and tortiere...

  3. Happy Canada Day, when I was a child we were supposed to emigrate there but didnt, I often wonder about it now, what if?
    Enjoy your maple syrup and other things I dont know what they are.

  4. Happy Canada Day, Talli! Ever since I saw 'O Canada' in the Canadian pavilion at Epcot I've really wanted to visit! Despite the Disney-ness, it's a great advertisement for your country! ;-)

  7. Thanks everyone!

    Elspeth - Maybe some day! You must come visit.

    Carol - For shame! :)

    Brigid - Poutine is chips with cheese curds and gravy. Sounds disgusting, I know, but it's so yum. Tortiere is like shepherd's pie, sort of.

    Catherine - I agree! Love the Canada pavillion at Epcot.

  9. I don't know why, but I have such a soft spot in my heart for Canadians. Actually, now that I think about it, it's probably because my BFF was born there and my England relatives are always considering moving there since they can't move to the states.

  19. Happy Canada Day! It must be so strange to have two homes so far from each other. I feel like that just by coming from one state and living in another.

  29. Thanks for commenting on my blog. Jen says yes, Green is the greatest. And glad you read Patricia Stoltey's list. It WAS hilarious, and helpful I thought.

    Canada Day. I've never been to Canada, though would love to go there, somewhere east or west. My only "memory" of it comes from Mrs. Mike, a book I read in the Fifties about Mary Katherine Flanagan who married a Canadian Mounty and followed him to Canada at a time when it was far from civilization and very cold. Did you ever read it? It's wonderful.

  34. Canadians always seem like very calm, thoughtful people. They're also funny and stylish. I could go on . . . You guys are cool! What's with the "aboot" thing though?

  35. Hope you had a great Canada Day!! I actually had poutine yesterday... It's my ultimate comfort food. (And typing the word 'poutine' just now made me crave it again!)
