Sedum is a magnet.For so many little flying treasures.
I could watch and watch and watch.
Fun watercolor books..Arteza..cheap and cheerful..good for mixed media..3 books to a pack.Amazon:)
With Sarah's little beehive cakelet pan..I dressed up my sideboard for DA:)Hope to see it:)
In other news..
I am often complaining that we NEVER go downtown anymore..unless we have an appointment.
Years ago..it was fun to go to the markets..Little Italy..Old Montreal..
the last 3 yrs have been utter chaos for us.
I live in the country surrounded ..by..shhh......
and butterflies and bees ..
Here I just look about and see the sky..
In the city you must look up.
We went yesterday..
Took 1.5 hrs to get there.
It's really 45 mins from here.
Our beautiful city is still beautiful but..as even downtowners will say Orange ConeVille these days..Huge new hospitals being built..interchanges....wow.
All my old Ipad/pics..through the window and not.
Detour is règle du jour.
Men at work..wait..women too..many many ..at work are everywhere.
How the merchants are surviving all this is beyond me.
These brave guys I tell ya..
Imagine me alone w/ no sense of direction..Oh lala.
Rue Barrée..means Road Closed..OMG..what would I do? CRY.
Everything is in French here.
But you will find the majority can speak English in stores downtown and in Old Montreal.
I live in an English enclave.
I have the very best of both worlds.
I was brought up syaing Oui and Yes in the same breath.
All my primary and secondary schooling was done in French.
and then McGill University..English.
My family is bilingual..from the biggest to the littlest.
It's a gift really.
I am always grateful.
It's like most cosmopolitan cities..lots of black..lots of men in suits..lots of men in tight suits now..tight jackets shorter pants and jackets..
Lots of BEAUTIFUL people.
The shortest skirts.. the tallest heels..
Don't wear orange lol.
To me Montréal is so beautiful..the architecture..the boroughs..
The trees..the Old part..truly a city to be so proud of.I grew up there until the age of 10.
Then we moved to the suburbs.
As a young bride..we moved to the country.
It's been over 43 yrs..
I have been sort of gardening..not much to do in Sept..
Working on a Lucas blanket..went and bought Max blanket yarn:)
At Michaels..I picked up a small bid 60% off and it just fell and broke it's tail.
My husband was in tears when I tell him what I did..what I always do.
I brought it to a clerk and told them and asked if I should pay for it.
Don't worry they said.
ME? Not worry.
Have a great weekend.
I'll be enjoying quietude.And watching the leaves change as I speak..
No football this w/e..they are palying out of town..last weekend we watched Lucas and Max now both on the same high school team.
I only have eyes for them.
Beautiful seeing 2 brothers together..
The Littlest..played elsewhere and we couldn't be in 2 places..
This is the kind of Little he is..
3 touchdowns.. 3 injuries.
He gets up and keeps going..never complains..
He lives breathes and eats football.
That's not an unhappy face..that's a focused face on how can I win this game with my team.
I adore all my 4 grandsons.
They are my sweet..funny..lovely and loving rewards of my later life.
