Good Monday to Ya'

Monday, January 30, 2006


Late yesterday afternoon we decided to go to the waterfront for a walk and for dinner. It was absolutely freezing, so while Mr.C. and our older son spent time at the playground, I went to the coffee shop with the babe (the one I worked in eons ago!)

A little bit of window shopping in Historic Properties. My favourite store, do you know why?...

Dinner at Salty's...

I have loads of meetings scheduled for tomorrow. These are the ones I had cancelled from last Thursday because of the supposed snow storm, which didn't come. Now we are supposed to have a storm tomorrow. Sheesh. And here I sit, putting my Chapter outlines together for the book on weather. The irony. Both boys are sleeping right now; a first! Half way throught the day...I am expecting my older son to come down with some terrible disease any day now; we were at the store the other day and while waiting in the line-up I turn around and see him running his tongue along the hand rail. Back and forth, back and forth; I'm sure it made a nice smooth feeling on his tongue, but I had visions of the germs from people's hands sliding straight into his mouth. The horrors...from a mother who carries jugs of anti-bacterial hand gel in her purse. What's the use?...

    beautiful photos. You had a lovely day it seems. I carry antibacterial gel with me. And antibacterial tissues (sometimes).
    Your son is going to be okay. My son used to do that when he was younger. And i noticed that it was only when HE was coming down with something. A little gift for the next person. Mwahahaha.

    Great pictures from what sounds like a really nice day. You are so lucky to have scenery like that when you take the afternoon out!

    I am the same way about germs...but kids are so clueless. No worries for them! Hopefully the force will be with you.

    Take care, Connie

    great photos!

    Once, in fourth grade I gave a friend a dollar to lick a subway pole.

    What is your son like!? ;)

    I have the strangest memory of childhood of my grandfather dropping his ice cream on the pavement and then picking it up and continue eating it!

    I was anticipating your sons tongue getting stuck to the frozen rail!

    Thank you for putting a smile on this face...it needed one today!

    What do they serve at Salty's?

    I feel like I could walk right into those pictures, very beautiful. I have all of those antibacterial products in my purse, well, actually it's a lunch bag, but there's never any room for a sandwhich. Hope your son doesn't get sick, I'll keep my fingers crossed. :}

    Chloe;
    It was a lovely day, and another one today as well. Two in a row!
    Let's hope that some other child ( like your son!:} didn't run his tongue over the rail before mine did...

    Connie;
    We love living near Halifax; it is a wonderful place; we were away for 8 years and never thought we'd make our way back again.

    MissB;
    Did she end up in hospital?? Meanie...

    fb;
    My son never shuts up (:) and has more energy than 10 of me...I am glad to hear the tale put a smile on your face. Which puts one on mine...

    Salty's is a seafood restaurant right by the waterfront; we had a table facing the harbour. They have really good scallops, shrimp and salmon dishes, as well as good seafood pasta.

    SkyeBlue;
    Well, it was Saturday that he did that and no sign of anything yet...here's hoping.

    Oh my God, that's horrible! (I'm reacting to your son and the possible diseases). But he's tough, he'll be fine :)
    Nice pictures, very different from the views I've been seeing lately. It does look freezing though, the colour of the sea is really dark :) The weather must play us a trick when we have important things to do ;)

  1. Blogger Cathy said:

    Devil Mood;
    See how fickle our weather is...yesterday was cold, but no snow and then wham, it snowed overnight and this was what we woke up to (regarding the sledding photo)...

  1. Blogger Meow said:

    Looks like you had a wonderful day. Love all the globes in the shop window !! Don't worry about your son, he'll probably be fine. Germs only make them tougher !! Have a good one, Meow

    Your immune system doesn't grow strong if you don't give it a little exercise. You know the homonid line that split off 22 million years ago and ultimately resulted in the great apes and ourselves managed to get here without antibacterial hand gel, 'phew', we were lucky!

    I have to watch myself too Cathy ... I have a bit of that Howard Hughes thing going on and fear that one day I will end up in a clean white room somewhere in the desert, naked, having my meals prepared by virgin monks in bio hazard suits ...

  1. Blogger Stephanie said:

    I agree with jase, we all made it just fine :) Just think of all the things our Moms didn't know back then, and all the dangerous toys we played with. I love to hear my friend (Mom of 3) tell of how she was with her first son (mega-organic, sanitized & sterilized), versus what her youngest now gets away with..."Where did you find that? Under the couch? Oh, okay."
