These weekends come and go very quickly, especially when we do a lot of travelling and visiting in three short days.
On Friday we drove to see The Professor and Marianne (Cuppa's brother and wife) near Peterborough. Surprisingly, they had more snow than we do near Ottawa (although we don't have any right now). They live in a gorgeous house in a gorgeous spot nestled in the woods (but not deep if you know what I mean). They have big window views all over the place. Here are two from the same window, one focussing on a Christmas ornament and the other not. Pretty eh?
From there we headed to Toronto or near enough to visit with Treebeard and Turtlestack (Cuppa's sister, who is less stacked these days, and her husband). In the evening we headed out in the bitter cold (-10°C/15°F, wich seemed mighty cold to a bald-headed, hatless man in November) to be warmed by the energy of Great Big Sea. They are a rollicking folk group from Newfoundland who really connect with the audience as you will be able to tell in this clip of one their old standbys, The Night Pat Murphy Died. They start slowly, so give it a minute or so for them to really get into it if you choose to watch the clip.
It was on the hectic and tiring side, but it's good to get out and to be doing too. Anyway, back to Nikki Dee and all of her wonder tomorrow!
