Something simple today, a fall view from my balcony. If you want to see the leaves turn in Toronto, well, I can recommend my place. Just pull up a chair and sit and enjoy the view.
I’ve been wandering out to the balcony everyday to snap a few photos and marvel at how warm it is. Nov and I’m still wearing my light jacket. Unbelievable. Usually by this time of year, all the leaves have been blown to hell and I see nothing but branches. Spectacular fall. Enjoy it while we can.
I’ve been so busy lately, I’ve not had a lot of time to do anything but go back and forth, back and forth…. The subway sucks by the way. I’ve not had a lot of time in the past month, especially the past 2 weeks, to do anything but rush around trying to get things done. Which means … Bitter Grounds has suffered a bit. By the time I get home, all I want to do is poke around reading silly stories on the internet. Thinking has been too much work. I’m working on a couple of articles and now have a backlog of photos etc to post for the next few crazy weeks. Hopefully things won’t stay this way much longer.
In the meantime, the construction work across the street is moving along at a steady pace. The old CHUM building is gone, just a bit of brick and rubble left. This morning they started digging out the foundation. I have to admit, I’ve become fascinated with the entire process. It’s pretty impressive to watch. 3 big diggers clawing away at the dirt. I have dozens of photos of the work at various stages and have cherry picked a handful that will turn into stunning pieces of digital art. I was on the balcony about an hour ago and noticed the basement levels are starting to peak out of the ground. It’s going to be interesting to see how they dig out the walls.
And finally, it’s definitely fall here:
Cold … ugh … I’m never ready for it.
