Back home and followed by the smoke

Me and Steven -- smitten
Looking at this photo from our first
week together, I see how crazy

in love I was. I feel even more in
with my sweet husband today.
Yes. I wasn't always 

Steven and I had an absolutely wonderful anniversary weekend.
Which is amazing, because we went to Ottawa to stay at our
favourite hotel there, and the pollution index on Sunday was 14,
on a 1-10 scale where 10 is the worst.  Yes off the charts air 
pollution from the forest fires in Quebec.

What did we do?  We ordered large delicious breakfasts through
room service, delivered by one of the nicest people you could 
ever meet, drank pots of coffee, and read our books.

In the afternoons we went to visit my brother and his wife, who were
so much fun. I should note that for coffee addicts like us, my brother
makes the best coffee in the country -- no make that the world. Beyond
delicious. Caf or decaf.

On the way home we saw blue sky, rain, views.  But approaching
Toronto, the same grey smoke smog was beginning to envelope
the city. Argh.

Have a loving your life day.

Weren't they! Thank you Evelyn,

I've seen a few around here and there. But it's been
a while since we've taken photos in one.
