As you can see, the taped up box is open and an empty shrimp ring was left for us to discover. The ravens had ripped open the box and eaten through one shrimp ring and started on another. I didn't know we had planned a present for our feathered neighbours. We had a good laugh about it and were able to store the other things in our freezer(minus 2 shrimp rings).
We didn't learn our lesson there. Jacques put a bag of garbage on the outside landing one day planning to throw it in the bin when we headed to work. He came back 15-20 minutes later to garbage strewn everywhere around the stairs. What a mess to clean up!
We still hadn't learned our lesson. The two of us went grocery shopping one Saturday morning. We put the bags of groceries in the back of the truck. After we decided to head to a restaurant for some lunch. I bet you can guess the rest of this story. Jacques picked up one of the bags when we went to unload. I heard him curse and ran to see the problem. The ravens had eaten 2 of our eggs and a bagel. This time they had breakfast on us.
Fool me once, fool me twice (and a third time)but those ravens aren't going to fool me again!

We also have a pattern for a baby parka. I have a grand nephew that arrived on Christmas Day. He will be the first grand baby that I can sew for. Not ready for any of my own. Sometime in the future after the girls get their own futures settled.

Below is the view from the side of our building. The hill is covered with snow but it is not very deep. The wind blow so often that much of the snow get blown away. I like how hard and crunchy the snow is. You can walk on top of it and it makes such a neat sound.

The beach at Round Bay. I look forward to swimming in the waves next summer!
The old cottage is still standing....we don't know for how much longer?
Dinner at Pizza Delight in Greenwood. Alex and Collette look impressed!
Jackie with that mischievious grin of her's. She had just licked Alex's ear and he wasn't happy with her!
All the family is together for the last time in 2008. Looking forward to more fun times together in 2009!
