I just had a new article come out on the CBC.
It's about Winnipeg's urban density and pollution. The image they matched with the article, above, is what the light pollution in Winnipeg looks like from above at night. Wow, that's bright. If city regulations were tightened up a bit, it might make living in close quarters an easier (quieter?!) experience.
...and we're having a long stretch of time off. Preschool is over, camp will begin in a week or so, and I am mostly busy with twins. Plus, two of us are still sick...and one of those is me! (Coughing is not improved by hazy smoke from Saskatchewan and NWT forest fires,either...)
We did go to the Canadian Classic sheep show on Friday, and yesterday we got to visit a friend's farm and enjoy the company of some Shetland sheep, a horse or two, a llama and some chickens. The professor got me a gorgeous Romney/Texel fleece as an anniversary gift this year..17 years of marriage... I think he's figured out that every year is the fiber anniversary. :)
Alas, my hands have been too full holding on to four year olds to snap sheep photos, too. Hope you are having a good Canada Day/July 4th/first week in July!
