Ooops and Fort Whyte Alive

Saturday morning is breakfast time at the Red Top Restaurant for me and has been for years.  This morning I headed out the door a few minutes early because snow had been falling and I would have to clean the car off before heading out.  I started the car, got the brush out and cleaned… Continue reading Ooops and Fort Whyte Alive

Breakfast

I eat breakfast every day, but Saturday it is eaten at the Red Top Restaurant.  They open at 8:00 am and I am usually seated at my reserved spot by 7:55 am.  🙂 I usually go with my friend Connie, but she had both her knees replaced a couple of weeks ago and has not… Continue reading Breakfast

Bathing Ducks

Birds and Water

Today’s walk with Chester was after my exercise class at the Y followed by a big breakfast at the Red Top Restaurant – a Saturday tradition.  🙂   I didn’t check the temperature when we left, but it was 9C when we got back and I have no idea how long it took for this walk. … Continue reading Birds and Water

Another Friday

But – I had an appointment for a mammogram this morning, so… Continue reading Another Friday

Too Much Snow

When the snow stopped coming down last night, the temperature began to drop.  By morning it was -20C.   I went out early to shovel around the car before leaving for my exercise class.  Luckily for me my wonderful neighbour Andy had cleared behind the cars with his snowblower.  I knew I would have to leave… Continue reading Too Much Snow
