Today I...December 6th

Today I...

...needed some things for the pharmacy and the grocery store. Instead of just going to the closest ones, I decided to take the long way around, so I could take these pictures of the Christmas window at Ogilvy's which has been around for as long as I can remember and even longer. It never ceases to amuse me and is a little different every year. All the animals move, as do some of the parts of the buildings.
...also took these pictures of the huge Christmas tree at Place Montréal Trust, which also never ceases to amuse me.
...The elf holding that long Christmas list moves up and down...
...and the figures on the platforms move too.
...The size of the man standing down there puts the size of the tree into excellent perspective, doesn't it? my errands done and came home.

...took some time at a few different moments during the day to remember the 14 women who were killed at École Polytechnique 20 years ago today. That's the same engineering school my boyfriend attended and I have been through the same hallways those women walked while visiting my boyfriend there dozens of times and have seen the classrooms and common rooms where some of the events that day too place, so it always hits kind of close to home for me. My boyfriend always wore a white ribbon that the student association at Polytechnique handed out to the students every year he studied there, sometimes on his backpack, sometimes on his coat.

...watched a movie :o)

Oh, and I will get a picture of my Christmas wreath up, I just was kind of in a hurry to catch my bus while leaving today so didn't manage to snap it then and by the time I got home, it was too dark for me to get a good shot of it.
