We're just back from Cobalt, a 6 hour drive north, where our son and his wife live. Our daughter-in-law bravely quit her job 3 years ago, and they moved to Cobalt, a northern mining town, so she could enroll in the Vet Tech program at Northern College. She graduated on Friday - three cheers! A very big mid-life career change! And we're terribly proud of them both.
But most of all we visited, attended both the award ceremony and the graduation at Northern College, and learned a bit about the mining history of Cobalt. The Northern College campus here grew out of the old School of MInes, which in turn is here because of the discovery of silver in 1903, and the interesting mining history of Northern Ontario that followed. More about that tomorrow. I expect I'll get a few blog posts in this week before we get too busy again.
Lovely bright colors! I enjoyed them all, and trying to figure out what I might be looking at mow and then. Congratulations to the new graduate. I look forward to learning more about Cobalt. :-)ReplyDelete
Your DIL was so brave to go back to school. Wonderful though! Family weekends are the best, even without the shopping.ReplyDelete
well this post just set up our summer vacation!! It has been a few years since we've been up to N.L. and the thought of eating Thornloe Cheese again just makes my mouth water.ReplyDelete
My friend Margaret would go crazy for all that wonderful yardage. Congrats to your daughter-in-law. - MargyReplyDelete

And you could so easily sing the song " These are a few of my favourite things" So glad the hardware shop was near the fabric shop,and for your d-in-law, many congratulations. This is a wonderful achievement, and to change direction, brave, to achieve, after years of hard work and study, so worthy of it all. Yes, those shops, if I could I would be there so fast too!!!ReplyDelete

Congrats to your daughter-in-law... What career will this give her? Hopefully, she can find a job... Will they stay in Cobalt?ReplyDelete
I have a quilter/stitcher friend who would love to shop at that market....
Bravo to your daughter in law! That's one part of the province I have not been to.ReplyDelete
Congratulations to your daughter-in-law on getting her Vet Tech! Our daughter-in-law is also a Vet Tech and she loves animals. You sure found some colourful things to photograph at the market there. I'll be interested in your other posts on Cobalt as I don't know anything about that town or area.ReplyDelete
That turned into quite an adventure of things to do. It is good to get the new degree. I am anxious to hear about the mining that was or is in Canada. I am familiar with all that goes on in Minnesota.ReplyDelete
Congratulations to your daughter in law. Good for her!!ReplyDelete
Beautiful colors. I'm thinking the first picture is hula hoops. : )
Love the yarn.
You certainly captured the colors of the flea market -- very nice.ReplyDelete
