Today I...October 15th

Today I... sharing this shot I took of the recently returned statue in front of Union Station in Toronto with you. It was out for restoration for quite a while, so my Sweetheart and I did a double take when we passed it while walking Downtown last week!

...had a crazy day...even though it was my day off. The only one I had until Saturday next week, which is why it was so crazy. There was a lot of stuff that needed to get done, like the laundry and washing my dishes and there was stuff I needed to buy as well, so I ended up going out in the absolutely horrendous weather.

...was hit by a case of bad bus karma, which always strikes when you least want it too. Take my situation with the 166 bus two weeks in a row. Last week when I went to take the bus, it was lovely out, but the bus showed up at the stop early, so I naturally got on to make sure I got a seat and wouldn't have to ride home standing up, since bad bus karma also says that as soon as other drivers can cut a bus off they will and if you're standing, you just may end up falling. Today, however, the weather as previously mentioned was horrendous: torrents of rain, winds gusting up to 70 kms an hour and naturally the bus was late. Very late, like 15 minutes late and I was at the stop about 10 minutes early so by the time the bus showed up I was wet despite my umbrella and freezing along with the 10 other people at the stop. stuck in traffic while on the bus going home.

...finally got home and was only in for about 15 minutes before my friend H came to get me so we could go to an arts and crafts sale that we go to every year. I cranked up the heat on my side of the car as soon as I got in because I was still freezing. a bit of Christmas shopping done at the sale and also splurged on a lovely hat for myself as well as a new angel to put on top of my Christmas tree. home at 9:15 and am now writing this post while making dinner. I'll be eating around 10:00 P.M. Ugh...oh well, at least when I get to work tomorrow we will be getting into the swing of the Canonization. The lead up to a big even is often more trying than the actual thing, so hopefully that will be the case tomorrow! TV cameras, crowds of pilgrims and tours, here I come!


  1. I'm catching up on your blog, and see that you've had a busy week--But I'm always in awe of people who are organized and start their Christmas shopping early! I will be in denial about the holidays for many weeks! ;-)

    Stay warm and enjoy your weekend!!

  2. Wanted to wish you luck for tomorrow, as I know it's a big day for you with Brother Andre's ceremony.

    Can't wait to hear all about it. Sorry I haven't been visiting your blog,
