I took a long walk today and noticed that the temperatures on the Canadian west coast are just beginning to turn towards spring, which is lovely. I look forward to the blossoms, but autumn and winter are my most favourite seasons.

Autumn in 2017 had many highlights. A dear cousin was visiting Victoria with family and friends and we all went to Pagliacci’s for great food and live music.

There was fun with an international flare to be had right in our beloved neighbourhood of Chinatown.

All Hallow’s Eve was spooky and filled with scary surprises around the city. We had a blast with tricks and treats visiting friends in Oak Bay.

In late November we spent two days in Vancouver for a tiny vacation and rendezvous with my sister and Randy. Day one we enjoyed the festive lights of the big city, ate at the always-delicious Bao Bei, and were mesmerized under the Grand Chapiteau for Cirque du Soleil’s show Kurios.

Day two, more wandering before a delicious dinner at Vij’s, then off to the last ferry home.

Victoria, so pretty with festive lights, window displays, and a very impressive “Whoville” gingerbread village at The Empress Hotel.

I catered dessert for a private Holiday party, and saw an impressive Santa and Mrs Claus at a local diner!

Christmas arrived with lots of treats (including Glerup slippers), and tissue paper and gift bag fun for the cats.

So, I moved everything over to the sofa, and embroidered a spider.

Sometimes, our wee cat Taxicab decides we cannot get along without her help. Today, she was helping GJ with his new drawing…

The other day, a lovely new friend gifted our cats a wonderfully charming little catnip mouse she had made. The ladies love it!

Our young old cat and our old new cat are not yet friends. They tolerate one another, and once in a while, almost play.

I caught these photos yesterday.

Ah, relaxing…

Not sure if either knew the other was there until the moment of…
