Before we get to the penguins - I want to update all you lovely readers on my continuing healing.
It has been three months since I got my tissue valve (actually exactly 3 months yesterday). I went to see my cardiologist. And I had a marvelous check up! :D
The doc listened to my heart and said it was pumping along perfectly. He said my colour was a wonderful pink and that my heart felt like it had shrunk. Awesome!
He also let me know that I could stop taking my daily aspirin - the only blood thinner that I was on. Yay! No meds. I can't believe it. This is the best outcome I could have hoped for.
Doc asked me if there was anything that I couldn't do that I wanted to in terms of physicality. Nope! I've been going strong on the elliptical and lifting my kids and going to the park and I have the energy now to do anything! So HAPPY!!!
But enough of that mushy heart stuff.
Onto the penguins!
I have been busy teaching my kids about Canada this week as you might have read earlier. I went to the Dollar Store to stock up on Canada stickers and various Canada Day stuff.
I came across this wooden puzzle. Awesome! Logan loves to put together puzzles and I can teach him where we live, where grandma and grandpa live, where uncle Davan lives etc.
Very good... until I looked closer at the puzzle.
I saw not one penguin ...
Not two penguins ...
But Three! Three penguins!
Gah! Since when are there free range penguins in Canada? Ugh...
I love the Stampede stuff in Alberta, the totem in BC, the RCMP guy and the hockey player. There are only one each of those. And three penguins!???
*Penguins are not found in the Northern Hemisphere in case you didn't learn in school (kinda like the makers of this puzzle)
