Four grown kids, five delightful grandchildren, constant, long-time partner. A retired academic, I'm adapting to life in a Vancouver condo after decades in a waterfront home on a very small (Canadian) West Coast island. Keen to discover what new priorities emerge, what interests persist, in this urban life after 60!
I'm off to my stylist's for a cut-and-colour refresher, then we'll head to Vancouver for the weekend A huge batch of marking to get through, but interrupted by some Nola time, a seawall run, and dinner at my daughter's place -- where not only are there two fully-trained cooks with years of wonderful experience in great restaurants, but there is also a newly-minted, just-passed-all-her-exams Registered Massage Therapist. (doesn't that combo sound like every mother's dream?!). Glasses will be raised!
But today's list is impossibly long and I have to run. So I'll leave you with these photos of the Hôtel des Arts et Meacute;tiers in Metz, France. By now, you can probably tell I loved that city. . . .
Have a great weekend. Do leave me a comment, if you have a minute, and tell me what you're up to.
