Around Downtown

The fact that I am typing this is more of a surprise to me than it is to you.  Last night, I put my memory card in the computer and it wouldn’t work.  I’ve had troubles like that in the past, and I figured that I would have to get a repair person in.  However, I tried again tonight, after I had already typed BAD NEWS in the title, and there it was–working again.  I love machines that just fix themselves when you do nothing!

So now for a trip around some of the beautiful streets downtown.  But first, ducks.

I drove to the edge of the ramp that goes into the lake at  the end of West St. and hordes of ducks came surging up out of the water.  I take it this is a regular feeding spot in the winter.  I save scraps and leftovers for them, trying to avoid bread, and when I have enough I take it down, just like I did with the chickens last year.

I don’t like that many things about winter, but it is kind of cool getting a better look at buildings once the leaves are out of the way.  That’s Hotel Dieu hospital in the background.

Elizabeth Cottage, the bestest pink house in town–pretty as a wedding cake.

Snow has hit us big time now.  It is pretty, white and fluffy, and clinging daintily to the trees, but it is also a big pain in the you know what.   When it keeps coming every few days, it is necessary to clean cars, shovel and plow continually.   I want summer!   One thing I have noticed though, is that the days are already noticeably longer.  That’s a step in the right direction.

I hope this memory card will keep working now.
