It's beautiful here today too.  It makes me smile to think of people out in T-shirts.  I bet there were convertibles with tops down too.  I used to see that all the time in TO2, the first warmish day.  I do remember one March when I was at University that I was able to study outside and got a sunburn.

Its beautiful here in the west too, so happy to see spring weather.  I went to the park early before the it gets too muddy.  Little tired, I was out late last night and with the hour loss,  I may need a nap.  May everyone have a great day.

You are lucky you can get out Marilynlou.  they won't even let me walk to the corner yet.

Comment by MarilynLou Fraser on March 11, 2012 at 11:15am

All my Apple stuff automatically updates the time. That's helpful. I can also check the phone for the current time. Changed the time on my microwave, but can't reach the kitchen wall clock. Just have to keep in mind it is an hour slow. No problem.

I think I'll try taking a short walk on my own, around the block with my walker after I've had some lunch; then I'll do my physio after.

I've got those clocks that re-set themselves at the changes. Great thing, some of them are too high to reach. It's almost Spring, and, we had but ONE INCH of snow all Winter; temperatures well above normal,, terribly UN-normal! Not really complaining, because Winters here are usually bad, below zero with snow you can't get out for days.  But I just don't know what to expect anymore.

Morning all.  I'm glad you took a day off Annette.  You'd better think of taking some off next week.  I just looked at the weather report and it's going to be up to 1 6 and 18 some days next week. 

Morning all.  I'm glad you took the day off yesterday Annette.  Did everybody remember to put their clocks ahead last night?

Gary I used to live in the area and used to walk in that whole park system there.  You can ride a bike from there all the way down to the Danforth or up to Steels

 I spent the day as usual racing.  Only a couple of week to go and I can start doing things again.

Annette Frittering is god  for you, do it every Saturday nice to relax.

Comment by Annette Tilden on March 10, 2012 at 5:51pm

I'm taking a mental health day today.  I've been working pretty hard all week, so today I just decided to fritter the time away after I did laundry and shopping.  I enjoyed it immensely.
