This holiday has several variations as to what it is called now, since the majority of new Canadians don't even know who she was nor have they been taught. (Our education system is a whole other topic).
Some call it the May long weekend, many of us older folk still call it the Victoria Day Weekend, or the newer generation call it the 24 weekend referring to their favourite BEvERage. and not for the specific date in May.
Excuse me, this post has been interrupted.
Lily has just brought a chipmunk into the house and they are both now running around in the unfinished basement.
Let the games begin.

Lily, you'd better get this thing
dead or alive
you're off the payroll.
Okayyyy it is now 5:50 AM Monday morning, the chipmunk is lost somewhere upstairs in the kitchen area. The cat is locked in my bedroom and I'm sitting here watching a fantastic sunrise waiting for the chipmunk to reappear.
Since this is an old renovated (and not that well I might add) there are MANY hiddey holes for this chippie to be in. Not exactly the way I wanted to spend my long weekend.
Yesterday was spent inside, it was so cold and very windy. Have I mentioned I hate being cold?
If I can get this thing out today I'm not too sure what to do other than call someone who removes animals professionally. This is really where I need a man servant. I suppose I'm just getting tired of having to manage EVERYTHING on my own.....
Well, one nice thing about all of this, the house is getting cleaned!
Life's fun if you don't weaken,
Lily (and NOT the cat)
