The red rose has bloomed!

Church service at the nun' house. Kinda odd but glorious singing.

My friend Nancy gave me these little hand shaped twizzlers. Perfect for muddling the mint.

where the bees are

Watch out Bumbly Bee!

I think this GIANT bee could probably hold his own against most foe.

rose garden

3 glorious, fragrant blooms popped out on the Sophie Setnyk rose tree this morning.

This little rose tree (a gift from Kim) almost died. I cut it back and then this happened! I have never had this kind of success with a plant before. When they start to die, they die.


Was reading. Now just lying here staring at this. Wish I had energy to run to the ice cream truck.

busless in the burbs

There are bus stops on Ameer Avenue but no sign that buses actually come along here.

high park

Waiting for Dad at Grenadier Restaurant.

happiness is ...

Dad happy about s&p on the tables @ the SC. Look @ all the stuff here. Look how happy Dad is now

muffin tops

Coffee and hardest muffin ever at the Eden Cafe.

dad time

Dad at the Sunnyside Cafe.

coffee time

Cappucino at Sunnyside cafe.

back and forth

Waiting for Dad at the Sunnyside Cafe. Travelling from Mimico to the SC is like falling thru a time warp. In Mimico, it looks as if little has changed since the mid-50s. The SC plays horrible classic rock that is giving me that flashback to the late 70s you get at the CNE.

rain pants

Heading back from Mimico. No rain today but I don't care because I have rain pants!


Back at Mimico Adult Centre. It's as lively as ever.

wonder cat

Look who came to visit.

faster than a speeding raindrop

Beat the rain home. Yay me.


Food court at Yorkgate Mall. You can buy candy anytime but the arcade is locked until 4 p.m. It is still chirping anxiously - trying to coax us in to no avail.


Ducks behind York Woods Library.

have faith

Somebody just gave this!

waiting for a lady :)

Waiting at the passenger pick up at Finch and Yonge. 10 minutes early ... Bah!

And a pink deer!


The weeds are back!

Kim and Callum gave me this splendiferous thing. Wow. And BIG thanks.

Home! Thanks Big Red. My pants are so heavy with rain I feel as though I am running in sand.

Oranges (in the new oranges box) and coffee.


Look! It's Tony the Tiger.

It is pouring and my hands are freezing :( There is a pavilion, I have coffee and oranges, and I am HERE :)

Mimico Adult Centre ... a hive of activity.

we're back!

Me & my newly exchanged bb are @ the Bickford Centre talking e-learning with the best learners EVER.

poo update

12 days after it arrived, the poo left the alley. Yay.

The poo has been spread all over the yard of the house where I live and the yard next door. Boo.

I can leave the windows open and be in the yard but every so often, when the wind and sun are right, a big smelly waft fills the air. Gag.

Right now - it is quite stinky out there. Boo.

My Mum says that the smell should die down by next Sunday when she is coming over for lunch. Yay.

fido update

Well - Fido cares. A little bit. Finally.

My new phone arrived this afternoon and seems to be working and C_____ called from the president's office. C_____ was very pleasant and non-accusatory. He did not threaten me. He did not make weird and incomprehensible excuses. He seemed fair, honest and to be concerned that my experience with Fido be a positive one. Plus he is giving me a 3-month credit.
