Yikes. Well, that trip to Toronto was busy in a very odd way. We arrived around 2:30 am Friday (Saturday morning, technically) and sat around chatting til 4:30 before sleeping. Then we got up and had to go from Pape station east of downtown up to the farthest reaches of the city, Bathurst and Steeles, to visit with Adam’s Bubby (grandmother) for the afternoon. We had expected to leave there around 6:30 or so and then try to make arrangements to see people, but we ended up not getting a lift back to the subway until after 10pm, which meant we didn’t get back downtown til 11:30, at which point we were too exhausted to actually do anything, having gotten no sleep the night before. Sunday we took transit out to Jordy’s place (Lakeshore and Islington middle of nowhere) and helped pack up the car, truck and trailer with his stuff to move back up north. That took all day, followed by the five and a half hour drive back up to Liskeard. Ian unfortunately had no internet (we were staying at his place) so I couldn’t get online while I was there.

At any rate, I’m sorry I didn’t get a chance to see people. Ya’ll have to come up here and see me. 😉 We will be heading back down in June for the unveiling of Adam’s Zaidy’s (grandfather’s) stone. I don’t know what the schedule will be like for that, though.

It’s finally warm today. Maybe now the ice will break up on the lakes. That would be nice. I was raking the back lawn for a while, til I got really tired. I get the feeling that Adam’s family generally aren’t lawn people. They looked at me like I was crazy. Now if only I had the money to actually start a garden or two…
