Saturday Morning Post


A dozen photos sum up this past week.....


My morning beverage of choice, Matcha tea.


Found this park thanks to my sister Mim! Amazing how we were not aware of its existence.


Sun through bark at Birch Cove Park.


Chester, the Golden Retriever, who always has two balls on the go......


Coffee break with sister Mim.




Cambridge Battery at Point Pleasant Park in Halifax.


Peace man! 


Another section at Cambridge Battery.


Ron and Sophie exploring the Battery.


Sophie napping with her 'babies'.


Spring in Nova Scotia.....


Chance meeting at the park.....this is Sarita, a woman with whom I worked for two years 
in the late 1970's at a hospital for emotionally challenged children 
in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.
She was a child-care worker and I a teacher of 5 to 12 years olds.
We have kept in touch over the years.

Soon after the hospital, she opened 'the' best vegetarian restaurant in the city 
and retired from that last year after over 25 years in the business.
She leaves for NYC soon for 12 weeks....she will be cooking for the 1000km
marathon that is sponsored by the Sri Chinmoy organization.

It's always good to see Sarita.

  1. sounds/looks like a great week. Love Sarita's story, it's so great that you've kept in touch all these years. Pretty spring photos...finally looks like it might be Spring out this way soon! Love, love, love the coffee but I'm going to pass on that tea. I don't think I could drink anything that colour!! Have a good weekend.

  4. Hello from Tennessee, Jim! We've been here the last few days and I've taken so many pictures--How do you pick your favorites to post? But it looks like you've had a great week, we've caught up with our friends here, and it's always so battery charging to do that, isn't it?

    I hope your weekend is just as enjoyable!!!

  7. G'Mornin' Jim. . .How about another 'photo'. .any news about Elaine? Are things going just a little better for her now? Does one ever 'adjust' to chemo? ;(
    I hope all keep up our prayer aka energy-sending, positive power. .. .I feel this needs continuous attention, not a one-shot effort. I hear this called "soaking prayer". . .surrounding Elaine with love, that energy power in each of us. . and when we all do it regularly. . . . well, you see. We use whatever images we can to try to explain the mystical in the Universe.. . .justin

    1. Good to see you Justin. My niece is feeling better than she was after the first chemo. She is due for her second this coming week. They say the first is the toughest. Elaine is keeping her spirits up as best she can. She has a long road ahead with chemo and radiation. She is a resilient gal and really appreciates all the good positive energy coming her way. I wish we lived closer.....she lives 3000km away in Edmonton, Alberta. And luckily she has family there.
      Thanks so much for your good thoughts Justin. Your year must be about complete/over now? Pretty soon we'll address you as 'Dr.'

    1. It's an acquired taste, that's for sure. It took me a while but now I really like it. And, I know what fresh cut grass tastes like!! It is my morning java.

  10. Love that Chester dog with his two balls and Sophie with her babies. They look very clean, do they get washed in the washing machine? I'm scared to put Samson's Gracie Two in the machine, she may fall apart and then what would we do? She's his everything, so I wash her in a bucket.

    1. Chester was a sweetheart that day....first time we met him. Funny thing as soon as his human jettisons them both into the lake, Chester will grab one and then nudge the other to shore with his nose!!

      Occasionally Sophie's 'babies' are washed...but not too often.

  11. I saw the first photo and thought, bubble bubble toil and trouble . . . Got some eye of newt and toe of frog in there?

    Love,
