Winding Down with Naomi

Hmm...what is this all about, really? It's me jotting down ideas about things that go on in my life, and some occassional pictures of things I've seen and done.

I made it!

Not much time to chat now- still lots of unpacking etc to do, but I thought I'd relieve you all, by letting you know that I'm back in Canada- home sweet home! (Landed in TO ~10 hours late!)

Hope all's well! There will be much more sharing going on in the next little while- but this weekend is a little crazy!

Days gone by

I was looking at my background, here, on my blog. The colours/style all at once reminded me of something that I've been meaning to share with people.

The city I'm in has a historic feel to it. Maybe it's because I've been reading some historical books about the area- but I could easily see a horse-drawn buggy making its way down the streets.

I'm not saying that it's not a modern city. It is, very much so. The thing is, there's a lot of old buildings, beautiful parks, great landscaping etc, that seems to have dissappeared in the condo-land that I know at home. I find it relaxing here.

I hope to share some photos with you that may emphasize my point. You'll have to wait for it though!

I know, there are spots like this in Canada too. I enjoy spots like this. They let you slow down, you know, stop and smell the roses. My little hometown is similar in feel, I think.

Anywho- that's enough rambling for now. I hope you're all fine and well...enjoy the snow for me. Go skating for me if you can.

Please- tell me what sort of stuff helps you relax!

Sunny summer seaside and the south

HI!'s been a while since I blogged. I blame that partially on fun with family at Christmas, and partially on travel and limited internet access.

I've been enjoying summer weather. No, I'm not in Canada- how'd you guess?

Yesterday I played cricket for the first time. On a beach. (I'm actually not too bad- soft ball taught me a few things!) I enjoyed myself a lot!

I've been walking to "work" this week. It's a nice 1/2 hour walk through parks, past athletic fields, a zoo, and a botanical garden. Any idea what I may find to do over the next couple of weeks???

I have been taking lots of pictures, I won't be uploading any until I get home though. It takes too much effort, and I have too little time with internet access!

I miss you! Write me a note, I'd love to hear from you!
