Catching up — funerals, munches and Beavertails…

Hooker’s Beavertails

Just relaxing in bed with my laptop, some nice quiet music and a cup of tea. I’ve been wanting to tackle my blog, but so much has happened that in some ways I didn’t know where to begin; so I guess I’ll just cover what I can…

Shortly after the funeral in mid-April, I ended up going to the Knotty munch because it was on the rotation that brought it closest to my home in the West Island. I wasn’t sure that I was up to it and hadn’t RSVP’ed but figured that I’d drop in anyway. I am so glad I did; I was able to spend time with many of my kink friends and it did me so much good.

Another friend of mine at the munch, Daemonica, had lost her grandmother only a few days before Michael’s father passed away. As a result, there was some discussions regarding losing family and friends, as well as death-related customs and traditions amongst our respective cultures and communities. It was very interesting and reassuring, all at the same time.

(Poor Maddog, he sat beside me during the munch and I’m afraid I really bent his ear during the latter part of the evening, but it felt so good to have a friend to talk to.) All in all, it was a good outing and I’ve been making an effort to go out and be with my friends again, because it has helped me to cope with the loss and loneliness…

My mother came to Montreal from the Maritimes for the funeral and stayed for about a week and a half; she headed back home but was back again in early May as she had a conference to attend in Ottawa. I drove her there and back and we were able to spend part of an afternoon enjoying the Ottawa Tulip Festival. My family lived in Ottawa when I was very young and so my Mom and I drove back to our old neighbourhood to see our old house and how everything had changed; it was quite a fun outing for the both of us.

We wrapped it up by going to the old Bywater Market and I picked up some “Hooker’s Beavertail” pastries for us. (See blog photo) It certainly gives a whole new meaning to the expression “Getting a piece of tail”…

Got some beautiful photos to add to my portfolio, including some great macros shots of the tulip blossoms. Maybe I’ll post some of them to share with you if any of you are interested…
