In our travels on Faturdays, we usually take a drive through scenic Ladner. Today was the first day that Vendula Farm Market was open (YAY!) for the season and this farm was en route. We often drive by it and today we finally pulled over and took photos of the sheep and llamas.
It was nothing like Llama Week a few years ago at Mount Lehman Llamas. I should really try to see if I can go there the next time they are giving the llamas shaves and hair cuts. It looks like they did that in May (2009 by the way. What the? 6 years ago? Already? Why is time just flying by this way?) so it’s possible. If I play my cards right, I could get invited back. I should try to work my llama networking magic.

There are some little girls who live in our complex who LOVE to decorate the neighbourhood pavements with chalk. I am a huge supporter of these drawings and enjoy seeing all their creations on my way to and from work every day. Now that the weather is nicer, there are more and more drawings in the carports each day. I really like this creature. I can’t really tell what the word is above him. Is it Boars? Maybe. Anyway, I like how he looks like he’s directing traffic.
Speaking of traffic…Mike casually mentioned this morning before work that the Prime Minister of Canada, Stephen Harper was going to be in Surrey this afternoon. Other than thinking, “WHY?” and then forgetting about it, I suddenly remembered this conversation while driving home after work. The traffic on the Alex Fraser Bridge was at a complete stop at 6:10. I noticed about 3 police on motorcycles riding the opposite direction to me, then a few more motorbike c0ps (we rarely see them in Surrey, so to see six all at once was weird), and then I saw a cavalcade of town cars. I completely lost count of how many black luxury cars were lined up behind each other. Next up were 3 big, black vans (the kind without windows in the back) driven by men in flack jackets and then…an ambulance. Yup. I guess you just can’t be too careful. This is not a political blog, but that seemed a bit excessive.
UPDATE: I read on the internets that the Prime Minister of India was also in tow. Still. That’s a lot of resources on the road.
That was extent of my excitement for the day. I took last night off from blogging after a super long night of portfolio show activities.
And now it’s back to normal days.
Until the next show in 3 months.
Yah. Me, too. That was a good day.
It’s only 2 days until a worky work event takes place and my mind is playing tricks on me. I’ll soldier on, but just know that last night I dreamt about bombs, relatives on steroids and hundreds of snakes under the bed. That’s not the worst part of my dreams last night. I dreamt I lost Donner in all the chaos. NOOOOO! You will be happy to know that the Smashy Brothers are fine and woke us up as per usual with their duet of yowling for their breakfast. Thank goodness for that.
And bonkers. Also, my relatives were looking very ripped with their steroid bodies and were driving around in a Hummer. LOLS.
So, whatever that means.
I decided tonight after being out a bit late (Monday nights I always stay in town with some friends after work) that when I got home, I’d soothe myself with tulip photos. Very calming, those tulips!
