Today offered up some much-needed sunshine, and even better: the free time to enjoy it. After dropping Sophie off at Preschool, Chris and I went out for breakfast at a local diner and then to browse the Central Library for travel books. It seems a lot of people had travel on their minds, as all the current books on family cruising were checked out and had extensive hold lists for when they are returned. On the up side I was able to find the Lonely Planet guide to the Dominican Republic, where I'm very much looking forward to spending a week in March with my mother. After picking Sophie back up from school we took a trip to Springbank Park to feed the geese and enjoy this beautiful day... that lovely sunshine on snow; clean, crisp and sparkling.
