Happy Canada Day :)

Happy Canada Day to all my fellow Canadians :)
I am so proud to be a Canadian.
I am so lucky to live in this beautiful Country and be surrounded by nature.

When I was in my late teens an older gentleman asked me what nationality I was.
My reply...I'm Canadian.
I know that wasn't the answer he wanted.
But I was born and raised here. Does it matter where my grandparents and great grandparents came from?
As it turned out, when I told him my nationality. His response..."I guess its true, you can't judge a person by their nationality".  Crazy ol' man, lol.

I am Canadian, and proud of it :)

Here is a photo from last night as we sat around the fire.
It was a beautiful evening, even the bugs weren't a bad as the night before :)

If you are wondering about the bug bite under my eye?
Put it this way....I am planning on staying home tomorrow.
It looks like I was in a tussle and got the worst of it, lol.
Lets hope it goes away soon, we need groceries ;)

I hope you all had a wonderful Monday and a great Canada Day :)

Tracy :)

  7. Fabulous cake - great post - we became Canadian citizens in 2010 and we are so proud of our decision to bring our family here to grow up. We have never looked back once and thought that we did not do the right thing on leaving the UK. We love it here, our life and our friends! Hugs, Karon.

  8. Happy Canada day, a day late, my friend :) Did Kristy make that cake? That picture around the camp fire looks like an advertisement for a campground, very professional. Lol! I'm sorry about your eye. Maybe you could put some cute washi tape over it and run to the store? Lmao!

  10. Happy Canada Day!

    That cake looks awesome!

    I can't believe a bug bit you under your eye! That was very rude of the bug! I hope your eye gets better soon :)

  11. Happy Canada Day! Love how my hubby is Canadian and yet fails to inform me of any of the holidays! I also understand the answer you gave the old man. I always say I'm an American and don't hyphenate it. My ancestors came over in the mid 1600s so I'm hardly English. Anyhoo, hope you enjoyed your day and the cake looks divine.


  12. Cake looks yummy and pretty with the flag. Hope the bug bite gets better quick. =)

  13. Love the cake, glad I don't have to count the calories!


Leave me some love and I will return it right back to you :)
