Skein

I spotted this mural painted on a railway underpass last fall. There is a similar pattern on the opposite side of the road. Titled Skein, it is meant to represent the weaving together of the stories and inspirations of the local residents. It certainly brightens the area. I will show you what is behind the concrete wall tomorrow.

Sunny Day

This pic was taken before we got a major amount of snow last week. I've always liked the proportions of this house and the nice job that was done updating it since it is not a new house by any means. And the typical Toronto red bricks really like that sunshine!

Rare Snowy Flamingos

Just after a snow storm last week I was lucky enough to spot a pair of rare Snowy Flamingos. These guys head north in the winter to give us a bit of colour at a dreary time of year!

After The First Storm

This was taken last week after the first snow of the week but we had three more days of it after this one. The first chore for many people is to clear off the car, then clear your way out of the parking space and then hope the roads aren't too bad when you get out there. More fun to walk if you can!

Snowy Semis

Last week was a snowy one here where it seemed we had snow every day. It is always nice to walk after the snow stops if it isn't too cold. These two semi-detached homes in the Seaton Village neighbourhood were looking pretty in the snow.

Doughnuts on Queen St

Walking along Queen St W early on a Sunday morning I happened upon Glory Hole Doughnuts which had a steady stream of cars pulling up out front and people running in for a treat. The reviews I read on line were great but I didn't make it inside so will have to head back on another day.
Seconds after taking this pic I stepped in a gift from a local dog so thought it better not to enter that day.

In The Laneway

This is not a free-standing building in a laneway but instead it is an addition to a commercial space that opens to Bathurst St at the front. The siding went on just before the real cold hit us in January and I imagine that they will wait until spring to put a railing on that rooftop deck. I love the corrugated metal they have used!
