SundayStills - a day in the life

The rhythm of my day has changed with the nicer weather.
It starts at around noon, when I head out for a walk, which seems perfect for this week's Sunday Stills challenge. No more than four photos to visually describe your day. And no archives.

So, it is Friday and my walk begins. I pass by this Ukrainian Roman Catholic Church to get downtown. My favourite pub is across the street. It is my favourite mainly because it has a big wraparound patio, with a view over a quiet side street of this church.


And conveniently located next door to this pub is my fitness club
where I will end my workout by treating my aching muscles to a steam bath


before heading on to the coffee shop for a bite to eat, a coffee and an hour or so of my new book.


And what is a day without a sighting of the ducks?
So I continue my walk down to the waterfront where I find several newly arrived long tailed ducks are being buffeted by the waves.



Repeat as often as necessary for optimal well being.

  38. I was so caught up by that book you're reading that I cried with joy when I saw that the second book was available in Paris a year before being published in the U.S.A and ditto that I could pre-order book 3 from the U.K. BUT what do I do now, I've read them all? Oh no. Thanks for sharing you day. It looked lovely.

  39. Mim: the movie of the first book is coming out next month. but, I so enjoyed the book, I don't really want to see the movie... I think it might not live up to my expectations.
