Cutest Moose Picture EVER
I found it on Canadian Roadstories but the photo was taken by Ontario Parks staffer Jill Worthy.
I showed it to big, tough, macho Dave and his face melted and he said, "Awwwwwwwwww."
I sort of thought the mooselet on the left looked like a bunny wabbit and the one on the right like a puppy dawg. (Click on the photo for biggie size moose twins.)
Ontario is renowned for its fabulous provincial park system and we spend every chance we get camping in places like Algonquin, Inverhuron, Balsam and Killbear. In two short weeks we'll be enjoying our annual Canada Day long weekend at Lake of Two Rivers, one of Algonquin's most popular camping spots. And then, a couple weeks later, we'll be going to Killarney, one of the most beautiful parks in the province and the inspiration for many Group of Seven paintings.
I have been in a fabulous mood for a few days because I've been working on my novel and I am actually LOVING what I'm doing.
(As an aside, it takes a great deal of courage to call my WIP a novel because it sounds so pretentious. I realized that's ridiculous so I've been practising saying 'my novel-my novel-my novel' and it seems to be inspiring confidence.)
I thought I'd tell you that because usually I'm whining about writing. Not today, though. Today I was on cloud nine all day, just bubbling with the thrill of finishing Chapter Four with great plans for Chapter Five and beyond.
I sent a wee bit of it to my good friend Lou Freshwater, who is also a famous and fair editor (who is looking for work, btw), hoping for a little feedback and, I am happy to report, SHE LOVED IT!!!

In fact, I'm so happy about my writing that I don't even CARE that Vancouver is CHOKING at the Stanley Cup Final.
No, don't care at all.
Not one ... bit.
