Tuesday Textures – November 29, 2022

who still wears fur coats and have you ever seen a fruit like the one below?

I’m including these two photos because of the textures in them. The fur coats were on display at an antique market that I went to on Saturday and the fruit was in the green grocer in Bloor West Village on the day I was walking in the rain.

Has anyone ever tried this fruit? I’m very curious about the taste and texture inside.

Walking at Night – November 29, 2022

….darkness comes upon us as early as 5:00 and the days continue to get shorter every day

When I talk about walking at night, it’s more like late afternoon but it’s dark enough for the Christmas lights to come on. Today I received my new iPhone and I wanted to test out the camera. It has a few more features than my last phone but it will probably take me awhile to figure them out.

Thanks to Becky B for hosting walking squares. Hard to believe that there is only one more day left in this challenge. https://beckybofwinchester.com/2022/11/29/walking-squares-29/

Shopping in the Rain – November 27, 2022

….thanks to Becky B for hosting Walking Squares https://beckybofwinchester.com/2022/11/27/walking-squares-27/

One of my favourite shopping neighbourhoods in Toronto is Bloor West Village. After I dropped my daughter off at her home, just east of this community I drove along Bloor Street and parked on one of the side streets. Even though it was raining I wanted to check out the green grocers and some of the dress stores.

Waking to a Church Bazaar in the Neighbourhood

….thanks to Becky B or hosting Walking Squares https://beckybofwinchester.com/2022/11/26/walking-squares-26/

It’s that time of year. The Christmas decorations and lights are popping up, the malls are getting busy and our computers are getting a workout with on-line shopping. After a two year absence, churches are opening their doors for annual Christmas Bazaars and Craft Sales. That’s where my walk took me today…..St. Margaret’s Anglican Church.

Day 25 – Walking by the Marina

….thanks to Becky B for hosting Walking Squares https://beckybofwinchester.com/2022/11/25/walking-squares-25/

The boats have all been put away for the winter. There are only the empty docks and abandoned slips while the boats sit on dry land, wrapped in white vacuumed sealed wraps. The walk, nonetheless is still pleasant and I am reminded that colder days are yet to come.

Walking Through Col. Sam Smith Park

….thanks to Becky B for hosting Walking Squares https://beckybofwinchester.com/2022/11/22/walking-squares-22/

I love this park but I realized recently that I haven’t ventured out this far in awhile. Today I decided it was time to get back here and explore some of my favourite places. As I got closer to the pond I was actually shocked at how low the water level was. I don’t think I’ve ever seen it like this.

Weekly Prompts Weekend Edition – Easy

thanks to Sue W. and GC for hosting Weekly Prompts https://weeklyprompts.com/2022/11/19/weekly-prompts-weekend-challenge-easy/

When I need to take it ‘easy’ I like to doodle or paint. This particular painting was ‘easy’ to do and helped me momentarily to take my mind off of our health issues. Thankfully we are both fully recovering.

I call it The North Shore After the Storm
