Well the Oriental spaghetti salad verdict - it was very good!
We had rain all morning and Betty drove from Lindsay to Smiths Falls in the rain. It took 3 1/2 hours! She spent a couple of hours with us and got her first look at our little house.
Luckily it cleared later in the day so she didn't have to drive the rest of the way to Ottawa in the rain.
In fact, the sun came out later in the afternoon and I got to go for a walk and even got in some running. My new ipod nano is great!
Gordon and I went out at sunset and although the sunset wasn't a great one, I took a few photos in golden light.
I was up at 6 a.m. as we had to get ready to go into Ottawa. After four years, today was the day that our niece, Danica graduated with honours, magna cum laude from Ottawa University with a BSc in Biomedical Science. Here's a photo of her just as she had received her diploma. I'm afraid that my camera didn't do a very good job. Luckily, Gordon has taken quite a few photos.
The Convocation took place at Southam Hall in the National Arts Centre in downtown Ottawa.
After the ceremony we took some photos. We are all so very proud of her!
This photo symbolizes Danica on her way up (on the stairs) - her uncle's idea.

With her parents
From there John and Margie, her parents took us out to lunch at Swiss Chalet near their place. They chose this as they knew we can both eat their food.
Back at their house, Danica received a few gifts, then we headed for home after first stopping to return the comforter set that finally came in from Sears.
We got Danica a glass pendant in her favourite colours, black and orange.
After we got home, we both took a nap. I slept like the dead!
