The dream view

We dream of going to the beach, we think about it night and day, and
we feel so lucky that we have had this joyous experience year after
year.  The only year since we bought the school house just over 20
years ago that we didn’t go, was the year I broke my ankle. The year
I tore my meniscus in my knee — our wonderful friends down the road, not only
cleaned up the school house before our arrival, they brought over a
double bed and put it on the main floor, because they thought it would
be too hard for me to climb the stairs to the second floor to go to bed.

But this year as we will say over and over to one another, is different.
And this year we are focusing on all that is wonderful both here at
home, and where we can get too.  Ottawa was beautiful, the drive
was beautiful, and our street right here in Toronto is lovely. 

The dog and cats are waiting for me to feed them their night snacks.  Please
enjoy wherever you are, and if you’re in the Maritimes and drive
by our school house on Highway 6, say hello to the building for us.
We love you Nova Scotia.
