I realized this morning that it has been a while since I thought of my blog posts. But I have an excuse as this week has been consumed with watching hockey! Of course, I am a Montreal Canadians fan and unbelievably watched the best hockey I have seen in years from them. Seventeen years to be exact!

Hockey in Montreal has been called a religion and I heard that this week in Montreal, people were going to St. Joseph's Oratory to pray for the team and go to Mass. It must have worked because the team that wasn't supposed to even make the play-offs, are in the Eastern Conference finals.

These two pictures are from a nice drive we had last weekend to Norris Point. The first one is looking towards the Tablelands and the second one is looking out from the Norris Point marina.

The weather hasn't been good and still quite cool. I putter in the garden in between rain/snow showers.


  1. Beautiful pictures Julie. I have also been consumed with hockey lately, but alas, my team has been defeated. (sniff, sniff) For me, last nights game was a heart-breaker.

  2. Those rocky coastlines are breathtaking! Thanks for the mini trip to your "backyard"!! I hope your spring shapes up soon so you can get to your gardens! Raining here again today too! So gardening in spurts! It's giving me a little time in my studio though! Yeah!! Give Maddy a little pat for me! Cathy G

  3. Hi Cathy

    Maddy is on the mend and she said "thanks" for the pat!

    Still using the wood stove as chilly!

  4. Beautiful sight, Julie...The weather is just so cold. I'm not sure if my hands will come back to life or not after today..We planted 25 drills of potatoes and looked down many times to see if my fingers were still attached... :)
    We have planted carrots, beets, parsnip, radishes and onions. Had planned to do more potatoes tomorrow but the weather is calling for rain, AGAIN!!! brother is coming along very well. We are all very thankful for that seeing that he had such a difficult time...How is P. doing? and you, as well, of course....

  5. Thanks for sharing the wonderful photos -- one of these days I'm going to make it to Newfoundland....and I can't wait! ;-)
