Zoo Day!

Spent a lovely fall day at the Toronto Zoo yesterday with my grandbabies.

Come visit me on Instagram

I’ve been very negligent with posting regularly over the past several months. I guess I’ve just been afflicted with summer laziness.

I finished a whole slew of crafty projects, though, so I plan to share them with you in the very near future.

I recently began posting photographs on Instagram and have discovered it to be a fun way to share my pics, so I invite you to come and take a look! Simply click on the link below, or copy and paste the link into your browser, which will take you directly to my Instagram page. Then just click on “Follow” and you’re good to go—you’ll be able to view photos from now on whenever I post them:


Until then, here are a few pics from my recent day at the Toronto Zoo…

My Zoo Days

In April of 2019, I made the decision to retire after over 40 years of being rudely awakened by an alarm clock, five mornings a week for the better part of my life. It’s January 2020 now, and I’m still basking in the freedom of never again having to be anywhere that I don’t choose to be. 

Once I’d made my this first decision, my second decision was easy. I would treat myself to a special retirement gift: a one-year pass to the Metro Toronto Zoo. With the Toronto Zoo only a 12-minute drive from my house, I knew it would be a fun and safe place to visit whenever I had the urge to take a scenic walk on a nice day. Not to mention that I would get to spend time with lots of very cool animals any time I pleased.

It has turned out to be one of the best gifts I’ve ever received. Since April, I’ve visited the zoo countless times—sometimes for just an hour or so, sometimes for an entire afternoon. I’ve discovered that no matter how often I go there, I see something different every time. No wonder—animals are so delightfully unpredictable. 

I will most definitely renew my annual pass to the Toronto Zoo this year and every year forward! Hands down, it’s money well spent.

Here are some of the sights I’ve had the pleasure of seeing so far…
