Bad timing

It turns out that the timing for our holiday wasn’t really that great. We were meant to be in Brazil right now for starters but are stuck here in visa limbo. As soon as we knew about our situation we booked a holiday in the country for, of course, there’s lots that we want to explore here in Canada. By the time we left I truly thought Marta and Liliana were back to normal and in fact we all had a wonderful and restoring night of sleep just the night before. But alas, the two little girls weren’t feeling tip top and for our dismay really didn’t want to spend any time outdoors. It was colder than it was at home as we were further north and on top of that there was a cold snap and it got even colder, very cold indeed and that didn’t help us at all. Luckily Warren had booked us in a quite nice and spacious chalet with plenty of natural light and a fireplace so staying indoors wasn’t as unpleasant it could have been. The girls were still tired and slept quite a lot during the day (and night!) and I don’t think I’ve had this much reading time in ages! We did have a few outings, of course, and here’s the most beautiful thing I’ve seen on this trip, the view of the frozen Georgian Bay. Really stunning. We are back at home now and the girls seem well in their bodies and spirits, finally! But I think I’m the one coming down with a cold now… 🙁

Acabou que as nossas mini-férias não foram lá das melhores. Para começar, éramos para estar no Brasil agora mas estamos presos aqui num limbo entre vistos, mas assim que soubemos da nossa situação nós planejamos as nossas férias por aqui mesmo, pois há vários lugares que gostaríamos de explorar no Canadá. No dia em que saímos de viagem eu realmente pensei que a Marta e a Liliana já estavam boas, tanto que todos dormiram maravilhosamente bem na noite anterior. Mas que nada, as duas menininhas ainda não estavam 100% e para nossa frustração só quiseram ficar no hotel. Estava mais frio do que em casa pois estávamos mais ao norte, e para piorar ainda teve uma frente fria o que não nos ajudou em nada. Por sorte o Warren reservou um chalet bem espaçoso, com muita luz natural e uma lareira, o que fez ficar no hotel bem menos desagradável do que poderia ter sido. As meninas dormiram um bocado durante o dia (e noite!) e há muito tempo eu não tinha tanto tempo para ler! É claro que a gente fez alguns passeios e aqui está o que u vi de mais bonito nessa viagem, a vista da Georgian Bay congelada. Muito lindo. Agora estamos de volta em casa e todos parecem bem, menos eu… que acho que peguei uma gripe. 🙁
