Visiting Cousin 3

For anyone who might be confused, Cousin 1 (Deborah) , 2 (moi, Elaine) and 3 (Sara) are ranked by age - 1 being the eldest by the tiniest smidge over 2 and 1 and 2 having 10 years on 3.

Sara, Kelly and their two cats, Harry and Daisy, live in a charming house with the sweetest backyard.

Here's Daisy, upstaging Kelly, with Deborah and Sara reflected in the mirror in the background.

We had a wonderful meal, prepared by Chef Sara and able assistant Kelly, and then spent the evening looking at old photos and trading family stories and lore. Poor Kelly did a good job of not zoning out from our self-absorbed chatter. Sara and Deborah are deep in discussion here.
Harry knows how to relax.
Saturday morning Kelly headed off to her work as a librarian - one of the most important jobs in the universe, as far as I'm concerned. Sara took Deborah and me on a wonderful walk through the neighbourhood and a ravine down to The Beaches. The air was heavy with humidity and was disguising this sailboat on the waters of Lake Ontario.
The final stop on our walk was at The Nutty Chocolatier - it had a wonderful old fashioned feel about it and, most importantly, lots of British sweets and treats.
We had a wonderful visit with Sara and Kelly and look forward to doing it again in the future.


  1. miss my cousins, too! You've captured it nicely, Lainie. Come back soon!
