Here are a few of my favorite online haunts:
[This is the site I visit to fantasize about
living in Toronto again, which is almost
day during the winter]
Jonathan Cainer's Zodiac Forecasts
[This is where I visit in the morning, when
I need a positive spin on things past, present
[This is where I go to see what Canadians
are up to, sometimes I even buy things from
the businesses listed there.]
Environment Canada Weather
[This is the site I visit every morning,
and before every road trip during the winter]
Saturday the weather was dreadful! It
snowed off and on all day. It was cold
Last Saturday we had our family BBQ.
Unlike the weather, it was a day full
of warmth, a day that glowed.
Four generations gathered under our
roof. My Mom enjoyed an early Mother's
Day celebration, with
daughters and son, her grandchildren,
grandchildren and all of our assorted
partners in life. Seventeen of us shared
a meal and good company.
Those who could not attend due to prior
commitments were missed. Those who
drove long distances to attend were
appreciated (everyone but Attila and
I, as it happens).
Attila was our Chef for the day, manning
the BBQ to keep a steady supply of hamburgers
and hot dogs on the table. Luna and
Terra helped by preparing dips and a
tray. We served homemade chili and store-bought
as well. My Mom brought two childhood
favorites, Date Squares and
Cherry Squares. My sisters brought potato
salad and beverages. Everyone helped
out and many hands made very light work;
and lots of fun.
Imp and Elf and Tink were the floor
show of the day. They are wonderful
children and enjoyed playing with various
Aunts, Great Aunts, Uncles, Great Uncles
and with their Great Grandmother. We
were thrilled that my nephew and
his girlfriend could attend, coming
all the way from Timmins,
I'd do it all again in heartbeat!
Attila and I are just about caught up
with our sleep, almost fully recovered.
A little bit of work has come my way
this week, and very welcome it is. Every
little bit helps! I am surprised at
how tired I am today though, having
worked this morning. Out of practice,
exhausted by noon! A nice hot lunch,
with Attila for company, and I'm beginning
to bounce back.
Annie is visiting from England, an exhausting
trip for her, as she is here to arrange
adequate care for her elderly parents
in Canada. She called on Saturday and
sounded distressed, but hanging on.
I hope to speak with her later in the
week, before she flies back to England.
She is feeling the distance keenly.
Helena is undergoing surgery today,
I'll call tonight to see how she is
doing. She took the bus to the hospital
very early this morning.
Caitrìona is playing in a bridge
tournament today. She is an avid player
and won a Bronze Medal in a past competition,
so we are wishing her luck today!
Since we prepared plenty of food on
Saturday, we've had easy leftover meals
this week. Some people dislike leftovers.
I don't really understand that, because
many foods taste better the second and
We are well rested and well fed, here
in the hinterland.
