A Quick Few Days in Canada and Now Off to Separate Cities!
we had a whirlwind of our 3 days in Toronto/Scarborough/Kitchener-Waterloo area in Ontario, Canada! we were essentially moving from place to place very quickly so we really didn’t get to play tourists. i suppose that will just mean we will have to go back! we did however spend an additional few more minutes at Niagara Falls and it was outstanding (and frigid):
we really didn’t stay out there very long because we were being covered in droplets of ice. not for me. apparently my Colorado roots have left and i am such a wimp in the cold-it’s embarrassing. however, those same roots highly impressed my husband. our rental car didn’t come with an ice scraper so i used our hotel room key to scrape the windshield. he stared in disbelief and then said “wow. this is my favorite thing about you today!” it’s the little things, isn’t it.
my husband gave a great workshop in what i expect to be one of the most festive venues yet in the Scarborough Civic Center. that’s our nifty banner that we lug all over the place. it packs down in a hardshell case and weighs 42 pounds which means i have 8 pounds worth of excess clothing to shove in there when we fly. yay!
this venue takes the cake for having the fanciest ‘green room’ where Ravery goes and gets in the zone before he speaks. there were mirror lights, a little TV in the corner where he could see and hear into the room where he was about to speak in so naturally we had to pretend we were movie stars.
it even had a bathroom and SHOWERS in it. so fancy! i contemplated taking a shower
just so i could say that i did. i refrained but mostly because i didn’t have any conditioner.
that’s what he looks like as he “brushin’ the dirt off his shoulders.” haaaaa!
we had a snowy drive out of Canada and into Buffalo, NY, where we both sit now and wait for our flights. i actually just managed to get my flight changed to depart 5 hours earlier AND i’m on the same flight as Ravery! yay!
we land in Washington, DC and then he flies to Portland to give a keynote tomorrow and i fly to Colorado for some business and family time. so happy- although i am already feeling some separation anxiety but i know i know…”distance makes the heart grow fonder” but still.
good thing i’ll have this picture to look at for 4 days. ha!
1) what’s the most time apart you and your significant other have spent apart? (ours is 7 months-do not make me do that again)
2) how well do you adapt to cold weather?
3) do you like flying? (i don’t love it the anticipating leading up to it but i love that it allows me to see the people i love!)
