    a view from the roof...

    looking across the lake, some days seeing hamilton, stony creek, burlington; but most days not seeing farther than the end of the pier, like tonight… and it seems like we are in a bubble of haze and faded sunlight.

    the patio is a warm oasis, with the oleander tree  now in bloom, dancing towards the sun every time i move her around.  the sweetpeas have grown up, and the smell makes me close my eyes and smile.

    almost every rung of the staircase is dressed in morning glory, and i wait for the morning when the railing is formalized in pinks and purples and yellows.

    even though i can’t see the other side of the lake, what i see inside the corners of my garden seems to more than make up for it now.

    molson indy this weekend.
    small dog not thrilled.
    i woke this morning to dog footprints in the bathtub.
    so that’s where she was yesterday afternoon.  she missed paul tracy running out of gas.
     i guess it’s just as well.

    it's a mad, mad world...

    Ronald Reagan is the ‘Greatest American’

    Ronald Reagan, the late U.S. president, has been crowned the winner in television’s Greatest American series.

    In a country when there are so many choices, and so many people who made a real difference… ronnie wins….. yeesh.  Gee - he beat out the man who abolished slavery… OMG.  Methinks it’s bedtime for Bonzo.

    In order, the top 10 greatest Americans selected are:

    1. Ronald Reagan
    2. Abraham Lincoln
    3. Martin Luther King
    4. George Washington
    5. Benjamin Franklin
    6. George W. Bush
    7. Bill Clinton
    8. Elvis Presley
    9. Oprah Winfrey
    10. Franklin D. Roosevelt


     All around me are familiar faces
    Worn out places, worn out faces
    Bright and early for their daily races
    Going nowhere, going nowhere
    And their tears are filling up their glasses
    No expression, no expression
    Hide my head I want to drown my sorrow
    No tomorrow, no tomorrow
    And I find it kind of funny
    I find it kind of sad
    The dreams in which I’m dying
    Are the best I’ve ever had
    I find it hard to tell you
    ‘Cos I find it hard to take
    When people run in circles
    It’s a very, very
    Mad World

    season of change...


    it's not the heat that gets you....

    At times one might wish for a little less global warming.  It’s days like today (and yesterday, and the day before, and the week before), when a little rain may not necessarily be a bad thing.

    This morning the sun was a miserable little nubbin in the sky - sqinting through what tourists may think of as haze…. with an orange luminescence over the harbour.  It didn’t look fresh.  It didn’t look healthy. It didn’t look right.


    coming or going....



    gurls.jpg…from last thursday night… and that strange guy… the waiter, of course.

    sunny sunday...

    ahh sunday - thy name is heaven….. the “world is my oyster” sunday.

    got back yesterday from an adventure in appin, picking up love and hugs from the farm, not to mention, bringing home our new computer table…

    ahem, i really should clarify that…. it’s NOT a computer table - it’s a sexy little hall table that will house our monitor (flatscreen) and kebourard and mouse (both wireless)…. and it’s beautiful.  of course the wiz wants to do some modifications to it…. but i stood by my little table and said no.  plus, you haven’t had to see the “enhancements” he did to the new coffee table… shudder. :-)

    the only think on my todolist this morning is schnuggle.


    the official beginning of summer...

    we had our first dinner on the patio tonight - 90% bbq ;-) 10% salad…. on our new patio furniture…
    It’s simply great furniture…. we were looking for something smaller, but the price was right - and we can now curl up on it and watch the water and the sunset in the city….

    speaking of watching - you can tell it’s offically summer now at the harbour = bonjovi playing across the water on all the party  boats is the tip off that the good weather is here….

    why people should have to listen to bonjovi whilst on the water is beyond me….. but the boats are beautiful at night, lit and swaying… and even bonjovi is bearable under those conditions ;-)
