I'm gradually getting used to having an older teen staying with me but this weekend was so different. Two of her friends came over and they decided at about 10 pm to dye each other's hair! They were very careful with the dye and I only had to use a little bleach on my kitchen counter to erase the fuschia/hot pink colour from my beige counter!! I did find some purple on an old towel and some green somewhere else but on the whole, they did a great job cleaning up. I drew the line when they said, "Grandma, want yours done?"

This graceful arched bridge of reinforced concrete was built in 1914, replacing the original 1881 steel bridge, to plans by E. E. Clawson, City Engineer.
A unique feature of the riverscape and important pedestrian link to the city's commercial core.

I just wanted to say thanks for all the lovely posts in the last few days. They've been so encouraging. I haven't had time to turn around it seems so I'm way behind in my blog commenting and picture-taking. Hopefully now that spring is almost here, things will change.

Yep! Two o'clock in the morning! Actually 2:10 am. No piccie! I'm sitting here yawning. I want to thank everyone who posted about the chocolate. I had plans for a pic for tonight but got so busy with other stuff on the website that I just can't do it tonight. I'm so far behind too in getting around to comment on all your blogs but I will get there!

Evidence is growing that chocolate is good for you
Chocolate may be better for your health than tea because it contains more of a chemical that could prevent cancer and heart disease, researchers have said.
Ohh, that's all I had to read! And I gobbled up a huge chocolate bar!
Last night as I was wanting to update both of my blogs, do you think I could? Each time I tried to, everything froze up! And I wanted to so badly as I knew I was going to be busy all day today doing important things elsewhere.
I ate chocolate.
You might say that I indulged!
- Do you ever do that (indulge)?
- Do you enjoy chocolate?
- Do you ever sneak in and pinch of of your kids' choccies--even one little piecs?
- Do you see the chocolate bars at the checkout and buy one and tell the cashier, "I'll just put that in my handbag, thanks!"

When I saw this sunset just out of town a wee bit, I couldn't help humming to myself the following hymn that is well known the world over and since it's Sunday, I thought I'd just post it for all who come in here.
(Click title to hear music) Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found;
Was blind, but now I see. 'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears relieved;
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed. Through many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come;
'Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home. The Lord has promised good to me,
His Word my hope secures;
He will my Shield and Portion be,
As long as life endures. Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease,
I shall possess, within the veil,
A life of joy and peace. The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
The sun forbear to shine;
But God, Who called me here below,
Shall be forever mine. When we've been there ten thousand years,
Bright shining as the sun,
We've no less days to sing God's praise
Than when we'd first begun.

We always had a cat. I grew up with cats but when our last cat died many years ago, we just never thought to get another one and then we brought Geordie home. He was all we needed. Several times I'd bring up the subject of a cat to Jack but then we realized that with his fistula in his arm in order to have dialysis, it would have been terrible if he ever was scratched there causing unnecessary bleeding. So, we never got another cat... Until...
Geordie didn't like the fact that Victor was in the cat carrying case but I wanted him to get used to the smell of our home and some of the things before letting him out into the living room.

.Today I met Anna's mother and we had a lovely few hours at LaSalle Park on Lake Ontario. It wasn't too cold down there. The harbour is frozen and looking across to the Stelco Steel Plant, you could see that they were busy working.
Among the thousands of waterfowl, we found a pair of Pintail Ducks. It was very difficult to take a photo of them without hundreds of other birds around them but this is my attempt. Not a very good one but my little old point and shoot did pretty well. We'll meet again soon. Had a wonderful day with your mother, your father and your brother, Alexander, Anna!
