Today, I passed through Paris, Delhi, Brisbane, Scotland...
Not in this particular order (as my cousin Alyssa made sure I pointed out), and all in Ontario.
Here in southern Ontario I finally have my summer tan. It's about 80F here in the day, that's about 27C.
The day I arrived (Thurs) I went bug hunting with the kids - we saw a cicada that couldn't fly, and worms, ants, wasps, and ladybugs.
And I put my goddaughter to sleep in her fancy Jeep stroller by walking her up and down the street in front of the house.
That evening, I went with Alyssa and her cousin Emily (who likes to say she's mine too) to Montana's, one of those bar and cookhouse type places where you get handmade burgers, bbq ribs, jalapeno poppers, tortilla wraps, steak and shrimps, etc. I had hot n spicy chicken wings, in a yummy crispy cornflour batter.
Saturday was just food shopping for Sunday, as my aunt was hosting 40 people at home after the Christening.
Sunday was another glorious day with an indescribably blue sky.
Today, Monday, was supposed to be a big one. Early afternoon, a trip to the cemetery for the one year anniversary of Jada's dad's passing; a scenic drive with my uncle in his MG; a shopping trip with Alyssa; a night at the movie with my aunt.
But we only managed the first bit, which took all day as one of the cars broke down on the side of the road about 45 minutes from home, and while we waited for rescue the sun went down. It was about a 2 hour trip each way, so it was those long Canadian roads that ate up our day!
And so, tomorrow I fly out to NYC.
I leave you with a couple of pics of my short visit to Ontario, though actually some of the best are on my phonecam [and I couldn't transfer them to the computer, so you have to wait till I get back to London]:

Jada is a girlie girl
She is such a doll!
