mom visit

My mom (CK) arrived safe and sound yesterday. Allan and I ran around the airport a bit - Pearson could use some better signage for arrivals and terminals. But now we know that all flights from the US come in to Terminal 2, Zone A, and by the time CK cleared customs we were waiting for her. It was so good to see her!

We saw a little bit of the neighbourhood, did the house tour and had dinner at our favorite Irish pub, the one with the story we never get tired of telling, and a brief stroll along the lake. We watched a frustrating ball game, and CK got to see the baseball-loving branch of her family in action. I think she was quite bemused by the spectacle.

I don't think I'll have much to report, as we're not planning anything exciting. Just enjoying each other's company.

My mother does have a lot of questions about life in Canada, so if I stumble on any revelations, no matter how trivial, I'll report back. No observation too small for wmtc!

Hey, this morning, for the first time, I could have used gloves while I was walking the dogs. At 7:00 a.m. on the lakefront, it was more than brisk - it was downright chilly. Nice.

They're moving all the terminals around at the moment, so putting up signs at this point wouldn't be frugal. ;)

Are you going to be doing a Canadian family Thanksgiving thing on Monday?

We've been traveling to TO regularly for the past three-four years, and Pearson has consistently been under construction. It's about my least favorite thing about my favorite city. :-)

Ah-ha.

LOL. I will never live that down, eh? :)

I don't think so. We didn't do it in the US, no point in starting now. We'll just have dinner at home and be thankful for that.

happy Thanksgiving!

Thanks MA!

I'm glad to know this. Note to self: get Pearson info in advance.

Hi ncgibson, welcome to wmtc. :)
