The third Monday in February is Family Day in Ontario. This statutory holiday was established just a few years ago, with the first Family Day being observed on 18 February 2008. Some argue that a name commemorating a local figure or event would be more appropriate, but I have to say that I think Family Day is a perfect name. In keeping with the holiday, I travelled back to the Toronto area this weekend to visit relatives. On my way home, I made a detour to Birdgirl’s house to meet the newest member of the family.
Seabrooke had just picked up the new puppy on Sunday, and the little guy was still settling in on Monday afternoon, but doing fine. What a cutie! Although Raven and two of the cats were still a bit bemused by this new addition, I’m sure he will soon be one of the household. He’s hard to resist.
