Saturday Photo and all That: Closing Down for the Holidays

This is the view across the street from our third floor window. Mont Royal Boulevard is not a very wide street at this point and it seems we can almost touch the buildings across the way. When the snow falls in big swirling flakes, I'm reminded of the view we get from the second balcony at The Nutcracker given by the Grands Ballets canadiens during the opening scene when the revellers arrive for the big Christmas party.

Five of the six adults will be attending the ballet once again this year--someone, perhaps me if I'm lucky--will be staying home to look after Jeanne when we go next week. Before then there will be potato sausage to make and many other delicious things to eat.

In order to get everything taken care of, I'm signing off for a couple of days. But if you'd like, check out our holiday blog.

That looks suspiciously like Le Port de tête, a wonderful literary/boho/artistic bookshop - almost wrote "library" - mostly in French but stuff in other languages including English.

Lovely picture.

I'm heading off to a friend's place on Bernard in Outremont to feed her cat and water her plants, and not vice-versa.

Ah, friends who look after the plants and cats of friends! What wonderful people!

All best wishes
