A sweet winter road trip

Profound thanks to our friends Marcia Labelle and David Cohen,
for taking care of our house and animals, and to Shiobhán Mulcahy,
Raylea Lambert, and Leslie Fink for helping with our dog, Sally,
so we could get away.  It does indeed take a village.

All is well, and we are back home after a truly wonderful
weekend, seeing friends in Chelsea, and hanging out in
the hotel enjoying the respite from subzero weather and
all of the normal tasks of our home life. 

One small flaw.  I was putting a bag in the back seat of 
Steven's car in front of our hotel, misjudged the entry to the
back door of the Ford--and whacked my cheek bone hard
against the metal door frame.  Not a great way to end my visit. 
Steven immediately got me ice, and I held it on as long as
possible. But I have a quite dramatic shiner. Not a good look.

Aside from my appearance I am happy as can be that we got
away, and had so much fun -- and I am being very careful
of leading with my face. The scene I'm showing you today
from a painting in 2019, is one we saw mostly in the Ottawa
area where they had snow last night. 

In Toronto there is no snow.

Have a loving your life day.
