Hopefully, when the snow melts, this grass can get a jump on that wretched Creeping Charlie stuff that is all over the yard.

We went to Toronto for the weekend to visit friends and do some shopping. We spent Saturday walking around the downtown area to see what there was to see.
These shoes are NOT made for walking. I bought a much more sensible pair. And the clothes upstairs made the colours in these shoes look dull.
I barely speak English, and now there are people who speak human? Wow!
A beautiful end grain cutting board.
Lovely old neighbourhoods. This one is north of the Kensington Market.
And, be still my beating heart. A whole store dedicated to buttons. I hadn't planned on coming here so didn't bring any fabric swatches. Next time.
And of course, one has to sample to outdoor artwork.

In Flanders Fields
by John McCrae, May 1915
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

It'll have hardwood floors.
Now that it has been vacuumed out, eet ees cozy, non?
Well, perhas not, but at least we did get an electrical outlet in the sunroom.
And I don't have to worry about turning my ankle on the heavy electrical cord that was running in there as a temporary solution.

She also installed a proper plug. She said the iron was two 'heavy' to have on a non-grounded extension cord.I don't know what she is talking about. The irons don't weigh very much at all!

And this is how I looked the next day. I've seen women who have hair that looks like this. Which now make me wonder, do they do this on purpose, or is it left over from a night out the day before.
