We have had a member of our family visiting from the UK for the past while. She is part of our family in every way except for that small matter of being part of the family tree. A mere detail, we say.
On one sunny morning a few days ago we trekked off to Simply Biscotti (the place that originally spawned the reason behind this blog) on Preston St. in Ottawa. Lyn was interested in seeing the spot that has been written up some here. It was a great way to start a day. Good for the soul.
We enjoyed lattes, a morning-glory muffin and an almond tart with raspberry filling. We’d recommend any and all of them.
I heard an interview with Paul Henderson yesterday. He’s the hockey player that scored famously during the Russia-Canada hockey series oh so many years ago. If you are a hockey fan, you’ll know all the details. Paul spoke of, despite his notoriety, he feeling empty and unhappy. He ultimately found what matters in life are relationships. I don’t know hockey, but I am firmly convinced that when all is said is done, Paul has got it right. It is family and it is relationships that give meaning to life. (supplemented by the odd trip to Simply Biscotti). What do you think?
