This is where it all started for me but times change and now all of my blogging takes place over at my
Quilt Routes blog and I hope you will join me over there.

Day 23.

Yesterday Kit put up a post titled "Through the Subway Window", showing a snapshot of her journey to work. She asked for others to do the same, whether they work at home or out in the big wide world.

I have to be honest and say that while trawling through blog land I am sometimes envious of the shots I see of other people leading exciting lives in other more interesting places than me. However I am old enough to also realise that you cannot see the whole picture from just one shot.
I have lived in busy places, including London, and while I wouldn't change that experience I think I am better suited to the quiet life at the moment.

So with that in mind this is my view on my way to "work" yesterday. The last of our home grown produce before winter sets in. We are not great gardeners but in our defense it is not easy maintaining a vegetable patch living by the sea. One day of strong winds can come in and destroy everything.
But last night we feasted on a Caesar Salad made from these leaves.

I would like to think that one day I will be able to take a subway ride in Toronto!


  1. Nice salad....guess it was crunchy and tasty, too...the last is the best, isn't it ? ;)
    Be happy that you live in a beautiful "quiteness"...( is there such a word ? :D )

  2. I love Caesar's Salad, too ... and strolling through Toronto's streets sounds like an exciting trip !

  3. Well, I'm envious of YOUR life (and actually, we hope to buy a home some day soon along the Northumberland Strait, so hopefully in future, we can commiserate on the difficulties of growing lettuces by the sea.)

    In the meantime, you KNOW I want you to come and visit Toronto!


Thank you for taking the time to comment. I do try to respond to each one but
if you do not hear from me it is probably because you are a "no reply blogger".
