brilliant blue sky, mild, temps 11
I'm no longer sure what's seasonable...but this feels good. We're in Montreal. Had a great breakfast with Tim in Cowansville, then headed in, getting to the car dealership in time - they drove us downtown and I arrived at Victoria Hall in Westmount with time enough to wander the wonderful Westmount library, right next door. Then into the Rotary lunch.
They're an impressive lot. Believe strongly in giving back to the community.
After lunch it was my turn to speak - I did, for about 20 minutes, then we opened it up for questions. And then it was time to go. Love clubs that are precise...in at 12:15 out by 2pm. Walked home - about 20 minutes...and decided to see about getting my hair cut.
I hate having my hair done. I find it boring beyond description - and I realize why. I feel I have to talk to the hairdresser - who is going on and on about something - even as the blow dryer is howling in my ear. So I have to look alert and interested - neither of which I am. I love massages - which take about the same amount of time - because everyone is quiet.
then picked up some groceries and headed home. Michael was off for lunch with his good friend David - and then he was picking up a Nespresso maker. We have one in the country and adore it. Our only problem was that there was a lot of garbage, from the little individual capsules. But now the Nespresso store in Mtl is recycling. So we save them up and take them in. And we love the treat of the coffee so much we decided to get one in Montreal.
Poor Michael had to lug it home.
but now we're in - and all set to watch the Canadiens vs the Penguins in the final game of the series. They're tied at 3 games each. This is 'sudden death'. the city's going crazy, with Habs flags everywhere. I could run naked down Ste-Catherine street at 8 tonight and no one would notice.
Very fun atmosphere in Mtl - mostly because no one expected the Habs to get this far - so win or lose, it's great. Tomorrow have one of my rare days with no commitments, appointments, events or writing in Montreal. I wonder what I'll do???
Speak to you tomorrow.
