...am sharing these photos from the last time I took a trip up to Saint Brother André's birthplace in Mont-St-Grégoire with you. Mont-St-Grégoire is a village about 45 minutes south-east of Montreal. As you can see, it is a lovely, peaceful place and the weather was lovely when we went there. We sat down under a tree, my friends S, M and I and had a picnic. I'm heading back out there tomorrow and I wish I could say I was enthusiastic about it, but I'm not. I was when D and M (the same M I was on the picnic with) convinced me that I should go on Wednesday this week. They were announcing lovely weather and Irene didn't look like she was going to bother us at all. Now, however, we are in for a full blow tropical storm with buckets of rain and winds between 50 and 100 kms per hour out of the north east. Dear Lord what I wouldn't give to be able to stay home in bed with a good book.
...headed out to the West Island for an appointment and to hunt down a rain coat.
...found a rain coat on special for 79.99$, which came up to 91.13$ after taxes. It looks lovely on me and I'm sure will help keep me dry and warm tomorrow (it has a nice little fleece lining), but it left a major dent in my savings account. Oh well, at least it is a good coat and it will last me a long time.
...am enjoying the yummy smell of the bolognese sauce I made.
...am going to try my best to be in bed by 11:00 P.M. so I won't be too tired to get up tomorrow morning. Only one day to get over a full work week is not enough.
