A journey filled with heartwarming memories

Our short vacation in Ottawa ends tomorrow and it’s back to Toronto, and work
tomorrow.  It has been lovely, and we can’t thank everyone who helped us get
away.  Thank you to Fatouma, Siobhan, and Sam on the home front for managing
the house and the unruly animals, who are now spoiled beyond all imagining. Thank
 you to my brother and sister-in-law for letting us visit their gorgeous property almost

Thank you to the hotel people who are infinitely kind and careful in this crazy time.
And thank you to the front line service people cooking the take out we ordered, and
the sweet staff at Starbucks who let us eat our take out on their outdoor porch, at a 
far, far distance from other guests.  You were great, and life savers in the cold and
 rain of our former visit.  You made us feel at home, which is a big deal when you are
 far away from your own home. 

We’ve been away long enough now to really miss Toronto, and we are actually
 looking forward to the next few months. In our free moments, I hope that we remind 
ourselves to enjoy nature, and to explore places we’ve never been like we have in our 
days here.
