my favourite walk








This weekend I was feeling ragged and a bit sick (nothing serious, of course). I was lying on the bed this afternoon next to a box of tissues when Geoff said that I needed some fresh air. I put on a big hat to cover my dirty hair and off we went. We had to pick up some cat food, so we took the same route we usually do, a route that has become my favourite: first we go to The Common for a coffee, then we walk down Gladstone (past the Cadbury's factory), across Dundas, down Ossington, and across Queen.

  3. Lovely blue sky, it must have felt good to get out! I love how those little routine walks come about, we have one that we walk in our neighbourhood and I love it. It's familiar, yet I never tire of peeking in the same windows or getting a chai from the same girl at the local coffee shop. So nice. Feel better!

  12. These pictures are gorgeous - walking is my very favourite thing to do. So much better than driving ... more peaceful, and you get to see all the details and little things that you would normally miss. Stay warm!

  16. I understand the sickness. I spent the better part of the weekend on my couch next to a box of tissues as well. And my husband basically forced me to go to Target with him.

  23. That little house behind the sunglasses are typical houses from where i was born, Madeira Island (a portugal's island in the Atlantic). We call it Casas de Santana (http://jfsantana.pt/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=26&Itemid=34). It's so funny to see it in a window store in Canada. I hope you are feeling much better.
