Happy CANADA Day!!

1st July 2014, our first experience with Canada Day was sunny (28 ° C), no rain ( “no national shower” as we call it  in Belgium) 😉 and many other surprises!

Here are some pictures to tell those unforgettable moments!

A great sunny day!



We were on a military base!



We begin to feel Canadians!




We rode a Pony, played golf and caught fish!

We enjoyed ourselves!





Finally, we supported our Belgium Team to victory with almost a heart attack 🙂 Way to go Belgium!!!

No heart feelings our American friends…




The SOUND of the RAIN !

It will perhaps seem strange to you, but for some days, I’m dying to hear the sound of  the rain! Yes you got me right, you know, when it rains and you hear the clicking or splashing of raindrops on the roof and against the windows, I miss it a lot.


Let me explain: we arrived in Edmonton late July 2013, since that time until October, if I’m not mistaken, it has rained 3 or 4 times. Then winter  brutally came in November. It is now 5 months and we had 2 freezing rain that I call dangerous and impossible to appreciate, because, when there is snow and it rains, the snow becomes icy and terribly slippery, source of  falls and accidents .

So I would love to see  the snow completely melted  and hear the rain … I guess our friends from Belgium or Africa etc., may be shocked to hear that, I know some people who are tired of the rain, I understand you! Maybe we should exchange situations: send me your rain and we will gladly send you our snow. In fact, do not forget to add your spring or summer temperatures!

Beauty !! 

A little advice to you dear friends who have very positive temperatures: please, stop and listen, appreciate and contemplate the life reborn (the flowers that bloom, sunny blue sky, the rain as a contribution, the nature that sings the greatness of the Creator …) and do not let the “sick of the rain, the heat …” hide the grace to see our Perfect Creator: God in the beauty of His creation!

Happy Spring friends!
