Hey everyone!

I'm back, actually, I've been back for a few days now. But things happen, chaos ensued. Details later.

We had a really good time, I've decided that Calgary is a nice place to visit, but I REALLY don't want to live there.

We arrived at the zoo around 10am Saturday morning:



We saw dinosaurs:






We also saw Lions:








And Tigers:




And Bears:

It was hot out and he was hiding

We saw giraffes, they are super cool, have you ever seen one running?



We got in line to feed this one, but shortly after her son came to get her, maybe next time.

Hippos are funny:



Peacocks roam free and walk right by your feet. This is very neat, but I kind of have a bird thing and was a little uneasy:



those aren't my feet, but they really did get that close!







Snow Leopard:



I took over 100 pictures, so now I'm sifting through and picking the good ones. I have video too, but I don't feel like doing that today. Maybe another time when I have nothing to talk about!

Can you handle more pictures?












Still with me?


Ok, so Livejournal just yelled at me saying I have too many pictures. I'll load up the yarn store/spinning pictures, plus the ones I took at mom's a little later.

I bought my spinning wheel, and have been spinning like mad since I got home. I'm getting better, right now I'm using the fibre I got a few years ago. And it's not very nice to work with. My singles looked like Noro Kuryon, now that it's plied it looks a bit better.

Sunday night drama consisted of my dog being stolen and later returned. I'm assuming by her previous owner who also happens to be my mom's psycho ex. Good times.

There were some pretty fantasic hysterics had by yours truly. But she came home that night and has been pretty much with me all the time since then.

I guess since I can't do anymore pictures I may as well sign off for now!

*The Timbuktu title of this post refers to Nikki's boyfriend's parent's acreage. We stopped there on they way home. They have alpacas. Guess who gets the fleece!

Very exotic trip. I still can't believe you're taking up spinning. I hope to be the recipient of some interesting handspun. I don't think I've ever knit with handspun.

And I'm glad your pup is where it belongs.

I am glad you got your dog back, is she traumatized now?

That's a hell of a vacay sister
Zoo animals (so cute), spinning, yarn and all the alpaca you could want? Sounds great. One day I'll have to come and see how you do it. Your poor puppy! That must be awful. We have 3 dogs and one got shut in the garage by mistake and I was frantic for 2 hours. I only found him because I went to get in the car to drive around. There he was, sitting behind the door, not a peep, .... waiting.
