Saturday Morning Post


Quite the week....


Yesterday at the Park. Ron's first extended, but short, walk in 10 days.


Soph and I down at the beach this week.


Walking through the dunes.


Looking out across the Atlantic Ocean.


The day before.....


The day after Sophie's haircut.


Cargo freighter waiting for entry into Halifax Harbour....taken from the beach.


We found this place on Thursday driving down the shore a ways.
Bonita's is three-n-one......Sears parcel outlet, laundromat,
and a small restaurant. Their clubs are great! (Even without the bacon!!)


'The Castle' on Young Avenue in Halifax.


I really think this was the last snow we will get this winter in our garden.


Look what I see!


Sidney (Crosby) is a 'local' guy who was the captain
 of Canada's hockey team at the Sochi Olympics.


Colourful surfboards in the 'lifeguard' building down at the beach.

  1. Sophie, that haircut must be catching, along with other things that happen up there, I, too went to the hairdresser today, and shorter hair is so fashionable for us gals!!! Take care, all of you, snow might be gone soon. Hugs to all, Jean.

    1. LOL! Joyce, now take it easy. Sid, that's what he's called around here, has the heart of many including one of my nieces!!
      I do suppose he will stay with Pittsburg for life, so I guess you do have him.

    1. Jeanne, so good to see you. Will be to your post(s) soon.
      Ron is taking his time with this....a little bit every day. Lots to get used to.
      But he will back.

  5. How awesome to see you three starting to get back to a semblance of normal! Ron beginning to take some outdoor walks is an awesome sight! I know he has a tough path to walk in the near future, but one step at a time, he'll get there!

    Bonita's Kitchen cracked me up ~ How Maritimes is that? Laundromat, parcel pickup, and eatery! It makes me homesick!

    I hope this is your last snowfall! We've still got March and April, two of our snowiest months to get through! We got a few inches of snow last night ~ beautiful cold morning outside with heaps of wet snow on everything. That was nice to see, because we've had very dry snow so far. Poor Noreen up in Breckenridge got another 14 inches/35cm. in the past 24 hours. Breck's total is now 335 inches/8.96 meters of snow!

    I enjoyed the Crosby sign. I was up before the crack of dawn to watch the gold medal game. Yeah Canada! Long or short, Sophie never has a bad hair day ~ lucky her!

    Take care of Ronnie (and you!)!

    1. It was great to have Ron with us yesterday for a much shorter walk and for part of Soph's and mine today. He headed back to car down at the beach and we continued on. He will feel some limitations Louise but I am hoping he will get most of his strength back for walking anyway.
      That much snow in Breckenridge!! No wonder Barb can ski every day.

      I never knew Colorado had that much snow and for that long into 'spring'. I bet it is beautiful!

      If I don't brush her (with long hair) she can have that 'Einstein' look about her!! lol

    2. Lucky Sophie! My Great Aunt Louise used to hire the rug rats to brush her hair for 25 cents/hour. I don't think any of us made it past 5 minutes if that!

    1. Thanks Pat. Yes, Ron is determined to get back. He really misses taking photos and blogging/FB.

  7. Great selection of photos from you as always, glad to hear Ron was able to have a short walk, small steps! I hope you are staying warm, it looks very cold!

    1. Yes, Small steps Hayley-Ezsti. He knows what he can and can't do right now.
      It was a 'warm' 6C today. But last week was very cold, you are correct!
      have a great weekend.

  8. Great shots, Jim! It's really nice to see Ron out and about. One day at a time... The world of photography sure misses him! Sophie is looking good. She's got the best stylist in town :)

    1. And he misses taking photos Martha! His arm is still a little touchy......very soon maybe he will be back snapping away.
      i/we like Soph with short hair....easier to clean.

  9. Jim, I see snow and cold (Ron is really bundled), but I think you both may be dreaming of spring! I get my hair cut on Mon - I hope I look as good as Sophie!

    1. Barb, I refuse to see and/or any snow till next winter......denial, denial, denial. lol
      I am sure your hair will look great and will be looking for a photo this week .

    1. Thanks Lisa. It is still chilly but we can handle this time of year.....no sweat!

  11. So good to see Ron's smiling eyes! I knocked on wood when I read the words "last snow." If that's what you see, you might need to spend a bit more time with the optometrist. Sophie looks like a puppy again with her haircut. I want to see inside "The Castle."

    And, finally... I believe Bonitas Kitchen also does computer repair, watch batteries, and flower arranging.

    1. LOL! I know, Ron was pretty bundled up for his first outing.....there was a, what shall I say, a brisk breeze that day.
      Most of that snow in the garden is gone now Mitchell! Told ya so, told ya so!!
      You know you just might be correct about Bonita's.......maybe they will 'expand'. lol
