Quick Update

By Belinda

In talking with Rob today, he decided to leave things as they are regarding the parking issue in the close.

The worker from the housing trust has written to renters of the hall to ask that they consider parking based on ability. We appreciate the letter being sent.

The rocks are going back, painted white.

The signs are misleading and will be removed, since they cannot be policed by the housing trust, and a new sign is going up.

This is Rob's issue to decide on as he lives there and I would support him in whatever he believed he should do. The majority of people in the close probably do not have cars and this would not be an issue for them.

We are focusing on gratitude for good housing in a wonderful community. Even though the answer was not what we had hoped, our concerns were heard and responded to.

End of this intrigue.

Our family has a standing date for Sunday dinner on the first Sunday of every month. Not that we don't see each other at any other time, but we all know that particular Sunday is pretty much for sure--and I look forward to it so much--the front door bursting open and our house being filled once more with the voices and vibrancy of six grandchildren and their parents.

He came with a dazzling array of toys and is proving a fast learner, already sitting on command and responding to Tori's training. I was so impressed at her technique of quickly rewarding a turnaround from any slight naughtiness with praise for "good sitting," or "good" any other desirable behaviour! 

Tippy had her hair cut stunningly and bravely short the day before; making a statement about who she is as a unique individual, o…

The Secret Adventures of Susan's Scottish Scarf

By Belinda (with a lot of help from Susan :))
I was saying goodnight to her at the front door this week when she told me. There was apparently more to the scarf around her neck than I knew. 
The scarf had been a gift from me for Susan's birthday on Tuesday December 18th. It had been her 60th; and that day I had treated her to lunch to celebrate. 
We met at a tiny restaurant, Port Soiree, in Schomberg,near her office. It was a restaurant neither of us had been to before and it turned out to be a gem, with artsy ambiance, amazing food, wonderful service and modest pricing. In other words, it was perfect!
