Here we are on our parent’s walk this morning – all rugged up against the much lower temperatures we have been experiencing this week. From left to right, Frances, Leah, me, Lynette and Elizabeth (and Lynette’s friend Toni who took the photo!) all braved -6 to go for a frosty walk on a beautiful sunny morning in the picturesque Jackson Park, where we saw the most magnificent heron.
I have been thinking about some quirky Canadian ways! When I arrived here I had no idea that the general manner of greeting someone is to hug them – I have overcome the reserved Englishwoman in me who found this rather forward! Nevertheless I still find it somewhat strange to be hugged upon introduction to someone I have only just met! It even makes the Australian/Riverview habit of shaking hands seem rather overformal!
And as for “eh” on the end of every sentence – who knew! Simon and I have bought a Canada-opoly game and stated on the lid is “A Canadian game from “eh” to z! I am sure we will make more observations as time goes by!
