shopping
























shopping,
needing that
perfect
little something,
looking
here there everywhere,
only to return 
home
empty handed.
wishing you a good weekend
and
if shopping
greater success.

tarta pascualina
a taste of
argentina.

this is an
attempt 
to keep
the february
blues at bay.

midday

























midday,
grey skies
dropping temperatures
before the promised
snow.
it took a few tries
and a circuitous route
to find a vacant table
for lunch.
the restaurant
has a
urban country
rustic theme
that seems to 
be popular in
this city.
the smoked italian
cheese and pear sandwich
with fries was a tasty
if not the healthiest
choice, the cappuccino
was bitter.
the plan was to
visit a
gallery here.
i enjoyed the
exhibit.

it's my party

























it wasn't my party,
i wasn't crying
and
thankfully
judy and johnny
were not present.
it's my party
is a favourite song
of mine,
despite the drama
it puts me in a
good mood.
so let's sing along
loudly lyrics here

out of the city


























we ventured out of the
city,
to another city
nearby
that continues
to sprawl
over
the best farmland
in the country.
at the end of the day
miss m's
greatest
concern
was to
return home
in time for
her dinner.

subdued

on our
morning walk,
even
the ducks
were quieter
today.
