Who Knew??

Your Tuesday smile. 

As I write this my hair is not done properly and my shoes are not on my feet. 

So, that's my problem!!

The Busy woman

I thought this piece of art said it all about the busy woman.  A bag/briefcase, an umbrella and the killer red high heeled shoes! 

I purchased this in a lovely little art studio at Fisherman's Cove along Nova Scotia's Eastern Passage.

A great place to visit.

Queensport Quarries

Sorry I have not been blogging over the past few weeks while on vacation in NS.  I will begin by sharing these photos with you in an attempt to catch up just a bit.

Queenie, as she was known to her friends back in the 1920s, worked with some 35 men at the Queensport Quarries. She eventually moved to NYC but on a trip home she visited with 'the guys' and they snapped this photo....I can relate!

You will notice the high heeled shoes!!!

The Queensport Quarries supplied all of the granite door and window sills for the Lord Nelson Hotel in Halifax.

Leaving Toronto today for a few weeks in beautiful Nova Scotia. A sister's reunion with Lois, Lorraine and Connie (Tom and Chris too.)

We begin in Halifax followed by a few days in Bridgewater and then a week exploring the Eastern Shore.

We may even visit a beach or two.  Lawrencetown?  Rissers?  Who knows.

Back here by end of September and then work begins again to complete Paradise and find that elusive publisher.

Memories for our grand children

This is something we should all keep in mind.  Especially when thinking of the grand children and young people in our lives.  How will they remember us?



On to Grade 4!

First day of Grade 4 for Jalen.  35 kids in his class!  Yikes..  I am very proud of you JJ.

Good luck to all - including teachers everywhere.

Did you know this???

Quick - someone buy me a Caramilk chocolate bar!


CNE air show

September brings the air show, closing of the CNE, a long weekend and back to school.  I watched the air show (this photo is not from the air show) from my balcony yesterday.  The noise was so loud it sounded as if the planes would land on my lap.

Today it is very overcast so not sure there will even be an air show and if there is one not sure I will be able to see it.  That's okay - once each year is enough.  I have other plans for today.

Have a good Sunday all ..
